I'm here to find new friends, play partners and hopefully even that elusive thing called Love. I spend a lot of time on introspection. Self-awareness and self-improvement is very important to me and I seek the same in a partner.
Some of my personality traits: Nerdy, Quirky, Sapiosexual, Curious, Intelligent, Kinky, Open-minded, Introverted, Optimistic, Patient, Protective, Nurturing, ISTJ
I enjoy being a gentleman, though I'm not always a gentle man ;)
I live in Rockingham, so meeting someone South of the River is preferable.
I have a mild permanent back injury. Most athletic activities are out of the question for me.
Polyamory Vs. Monogamy:
I'm comfortable participating in poly for casual relationships. For anything long term I'm looking for monogamy.
What I'm looking for: Characteristics I seek the most in a partner:
*Intelligence with the ability to engage in deep intellectual conversations
*Hunger for learning, knowledge, self-awareness and personal growth
*Must be a non-smoker.
Ideally I'm seeking a long term relationship, though I'm open to the possibility of play partners. I'm always up for meeting people over coffee. I prefer to chat first and see what develops naturally, without any pressure or expectations of anything more. If there happens to be mutual chemistry that leads to friendship or play well that's an added bonus.
I like someone that thinks for herself, loves to learn and can hold decent intellectual conversations, debating all sorts of topics until the early hours of the morning. To me one of the important parts of intelligence is being able to critically analyse and keep an open-mind. Being able to debate without devolving into argument. Being able to expand each other's horizons and consider new concepts.
Body size or age are not very important to me. I don't really have a "type" when it comes to these categories. I have dated all sorts: young/old, short/tall, fat/thin etc. None of those made much difference to me. I'm far more attracted to an interesting personality than any physical characteristic. I find as I discover someone's personality and it starts to appeal to me, I start to perceive their physical appearance as more attractive as well.
A good sense of humour is always nice. Failing that, if you can laugh at my terrible jokes that helps, or at least fake a convincing laugh for my effort out of pity :p. As long as we can laugh together one way or another it's all good :D
I want a partner that will question and challenge my decisions rather than blind obedience. I make mistakes like everyone else, I want someone who will call me out on them. I want feedback. I will always continue to learn and evolve.
Ideal first meet:
Grab a coffee at a quiet cafe. See if there is a "spark" and take it from there.
Hopefully my rambling list hasn't scared you away. You don't have to tick everything on my list, it's just a guideline :)
I try to keep an open mind and I'm interested in chatting to all kinds of people. Even if there isn't a mutual spark, I'm always keen to have stimulating conversations and make some new friends along the way.
