I cleared the answers to all of my answered questions, they just don't fit anymore.
I really dislike unabashed self-promotion. I am just a guy. career is in mental health. Which makes me curious about what makes others tick. I have a great many interests, right now finishing my masters is my chief concern.
I used to have a very complex list of ingredients for what would make me happy in a relationship. Like most experimental chemistry, things have a tendency to go boom, they did.
What I am left with is this:
1. Sincere emotional connection.
Its not a long list, but of all the ingredients without throwing out the baby with the bathwater I kept the most complex and rare, kinda like adamantium
I am also a lot more cautious and critical that I used to be, which equates to me taking one's time. I am not looking for fuck buddies, or wild monkey sex. Without emotional connection the physical doesn't have any flavor.
This means that you poly folk, and "other relationship" folk are right out.
This is what I am looking for and what I care about when it comes to relationships (short list, revisions coming):
I don't care if you've traveled around the world or stayed in your hometown. Nor do I care what your job is, if you love it awesome, If you've traveled Awesome! Just like the OKC questions for me, these aren't necessarily benchmarks for me for a good, happy, and stable relationship.
