Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A father of two maintaining a conservative facade. Finding the fun,
flirty, and affectionate me. I desire to have closeness, affection
and friendship and all that would entail.
“Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they
arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
Slowly trying to get my home in order. It is sorely lacking in
bookshelves. Seems I spend most time picking up after kids and
putting my couch back together after it suddenly becomes a cushion
fort now and again.
What I desire is meaningful friendships that make me feel anchored.
I love affection and deeper intellectual and philosophical
connections but not on a studious rarefied level. I like being
there for others and knowing they would be there for me. I hope to
find those rare intimacies that can bridge distance and time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Keeping a steady course. Focusing on my kids and their quickly
changing lives. Reconnecting with friends and spending time with
them around my kids activities. Looking to make more friends and
see what develops.
A quote from a book summary ; )
"Boldly and fiercely, Dr. A. advances the cause of the over-forty
male... the old man who knows how. It is the old man that ripens
like a rich tobacco, ages like a rare wine, mellows with the fine
patina of an ancient work of art." ...
--The Sensuous Dirty Old Man By Dr. "A" c. 1971
Dr. "A" is actually Isaac Asimov. Funny parody of The Sensuous
Woman by "J" and The Sensuous Man by "M".

Deep voice. Blue eyes. The soft silvery hair. The soft furry arms.
I have been told I have a caretaker spirit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm a biblioholic. Currently have more books than I will be able to
read in my lifetime. I love to poke through books. Currently back
on a Sci-fi kick. I have quite a collection on authors who had
books banned in the past that I like or find interesting: DH
Lawrence, Henry Miller, de Sade, Anais Nin, Nabokov... Math,
History (Roman, Greek, French Revolution, Samurai culture),
Engineering topics, submarines, sexuality and erotica.
Currently Reading: Doing It For Daddy by Califia (ed); Sworn Allies
by Fawcett & Drake (eds); Discourses of Epictetus by Long;
Teaching to Transgress by hooks; Habit by Duhigg.
Looking on my bookshelf lately: Chronicles of the Lensmen Vol 1 by
Smith; Spacebase 2000 by Cowley; The Fall of Reach by Nylund; The
Flood by Dietz; First Strike by Nylund.
Note: I do not expect you to care about my taste in book collecting
or reading. But if you do, more to connect on and talk about.
Discovering and finding good anime: Studio Ghibli films, Ghost in
the Shell, Read or Die. Taste runs to Terry Gilliam films (Time
Bandits, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 12 Monkeys, Brazil, etc.).
Chinese and Japanese films. Movies linked to submarine service. I
am always late to the party with TV shows... but I do watch the
seasons in quick succession since they are all out on Netflix
Music-wise I tend to like the old ballads from Steve Miller and Tom
Petty. Huey Lewis and the News and Beat Farmers are some others
that get my interest. OK Go! power pop is a recent fad of mine.
Renegade Legion techno. Tim Minchin. Queen. Some covers done by
Marilyn Manson. I like quite a bit of new stuff I hear in the Heavy
Rock genre but do not go out tracking it down.
I like spicy food. Like to cook and have quite a few favorite
dishes. Fall backs are medium rare steaks and stews with baked
crispy asparagus or chicken & eggplant stir fry. I have a
specialty dish that no one else makes called BS Beef and Onions. I
like to have people guess what the BS stands for after I make it
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Book stores, mostly Half Price Books.
Being with my kids.
A positive outlook on life.
Time and freedom to share in others company/socialize.
Good loyal friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to get friends to play sci fi war games. Weird huh? Grooming my
kids to enjoy my favorite games.
I put myself in the relationship anarchy camp at the moment :-)
That sounds bad but look it up. I am practicing the poly mindset.
Poly in a profile used to be a quick peruse and move on for me.
Logically the poly mindset rings well. More about the freedom to
connect with other people without worrying about unspoken
commitments. We spend our time agonizing about finding "the one"
that is everything to us that we destroy what could be great
relationships right there before us. Ones that would meet our needs
of friendship and affection. Instead we sabotage them for feelings
of worry about the grass possibly being greener somewhere else and
worrying about having to give up the possibility of other
connections. It does promote open and frank discussions which is
good and what I liked about my experiences in the kink community
(see below under the most private thing I am willing to admit).
What do you think of the poly mindset and relationship
Let me say I am not looking for a harem, or triads, etc. I am
looking for meaningful and fun relationships, be that to hangout,
be friends, or find a significant other. I am looking for happiness
and fulfillment which is found in experiencing life and sharing
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Surfing my usual web haunts or hanging out with my son while his
sister is doing dance lessons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While in college, I hung out in the leather community (BDSM,
Leather bars, kink conventions, etc.). I was taken under the wing
of a lady as her Top In Training for about a year living with her.
Very experiential sensations exploration for me. I would
characterize myself as a playful dominate but not lifestyle
oriented. I am not looking for a kink relationship but it is part
of the possible repertoire of an intimate relationship. Safe, Sane,
