My personal philosophy includes Epicurean Hedonism, New Thought, and Science (the scientific method) with a healthy dose of fallibilism. ;-) I am a skeptic but I am always happy to theorize and fantasize. And although I often feel misanthropic I am a humanist. And of course, along with huminasm comes a strong respect for human rights. Dictators, fascists and any who would oppress another human are on my personal mortal enemies list.
I am in a relationship with a wonderful woman whom I deeply love and admire. (Epicurean_Missy) We have been together for many years but aren't married and don't have any plans to get married in the future. We feel that marriage is much more about control and ownership than about love and mutual respect. If you really love someone, you won't cage them. We know that we are together because we both choose to be, because we are happy together, and not because we are in any way obligated to keep the status quo. Our relationship is open but we have only strayed a handful of times in the last near decade that we've been together. Missy is bisexual and had a girlfriend for a while a few years ago. We really like the idea of a triad but don't feel like it's something that we can or should "make" happen. We'll just put our desires out there and see what the fates have in mind for us. ;-) After all, we found each other quite by coincidence.
We recently moved to Los Angeles after living in Orange County and Utah. We have gypsy-ed around quite a bit in the last several years but it looks like we're going to be settling here for while. Now we get the pleasure of meeting new people and making new friends. ^_^
