Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I mainly started here for the tests, but figured I might as well fill my profile out since you never know who you'll meet or how you'll meet them. If you see me repeatedly stalking your page, it's probably not you that I'm stalking, but your test list.

Since joining, I have met many new friends and have thoroughly enjoyed learning something about almost every single person I've talked to even if only briefly. If I add you as a favorite, I'm probably browsing from my phone during a break at work or school and not in a position to say hi very easily.

I love new experiences, whether we are talking traveling or other and am thoroughly enjoying my 2nd childhood as I embark on a 2nd career as a nurse and massage therapist.

We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The young baby (youngest of 3 that I was left with custody of 21 years ago) graduated high school, started school for aircraft repair and was hired on by a major airline. After leaving the military, putting my life on hold, and raising him and his brothers alone, I celebrated by going back to school for nursing and massage therapy. While losing my youngest child halfway through nursing school shook that plan a little, I am still on track; I finished LMT and LPN, and will be taking my RN bridge in the next couple of years.

I have been very active in disaster relief as a volunteer communicator (ham radio operator) and have worked every major storm to hit FL since the 2004 hurricane season. In addition, I spent two days on a rooftop in New Orleans helping evacuate a hospital followed by another week in coastal Mississippi. I am currently a member of a federal medical disaster response team.

A few years ago, the kids and I did a 3-month bicycle ride from Queens, NY to Rapid City, SD and are working on planning a big trip to Europe (Sweden, France, Italy, and a few smaller countries that many Americans have never heard of) in another year or so. In the meantime, I'm pretty heavily involved in hosting couchsurfers. Let me know if you are passing through the area and need a place to crash or just want to learn more about me; I'll be happy to send you a link to my profile, which also contains close to 100 personal references. for that matter, ask about couchsurfing if you just want to learn more about me or couchsurfing.org in general...or just visit the website.

I just finished my first paid photo shoot (a medieval wedding) and am looking for other ways to explore this. I don't plan to make a living doing photography, but I would be happy if I could at least make the hobby self-sustaining and pay for me to attend various events offering fun times and cool photo ops. If you have any weddings, medieval/renaissance/reenacting or fetish events or need a freelance erotic/fetish photographer, give me a yell. Prices are negotiable and privacy is guaranteed if needed, or I can help spread your photos far and wide by setting up online photo albums and making DVD collections. I am also willing to work for free for portfolio material as long as you don't plan to make money off my work; not a big deal if you do, I just expect some of it :)

I love contra dancing and can't wait to get back to taking Yoga now that school is over; I have been enjoying learning more about it beyond the physical aspects. I think it will enhance my path in life, physically, mentally, and spiritually. The more I learn about myself and how to treat others without the fakeness of an organized religion, the more I learn to enjoy life and those around me.

While I will probably not go "off the grid", I think that the more food we produce ourselves, the greener and healthier we can live....and more cheaply to boot. Journeytoforever.org is my friend.

Here's a list of my interests as keywords for anyone searching for them : amateur radio, archery, banjo, bicycle touring, bicycling, biofuels, camping, canoeing, contra dancing, disaster relief, geocaching, ham radio, falconry, hiking, kayaking, motorcycles, Society for Creative Anachronism, open relationship, organic gardening, paganism, permaculture, polyamory, recycling, Ren Faires, sailing, SCA, wicca

I was just notified that awards are being retired from here and that we need to save them if we want to keep them, so I'm saving them here until I find something better to do with them.

“Hi Ladies. This is a good man. Fun, smart, polite, interesting and guaranteed to make you laugh. I was passing through his town and he was sweet enough to show me the lovely architecture of Tallahassee, State Capital, a gorgeous State Park and even humored me with my request of checking out the thrift stores for a hunt to find the perfect purse! Really nice gentleman. I would have loved to spend more time with him and meet his son had I been in town longer. I sure hope Gene and I keep in touch and meet again someday.”

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping others and making folks smile. Accepting others as they are without wanting to change them.

Also good at giving repressed and closed-minded people mild coronaries when they read my profile :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shaved my head. I figured I'd rather look like a guy who shaved his head than a guy who was going bald. As it turns out, most of my friends say it looks better and I happen to agree.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Mostly military thrillers (Tom Clancy) or non-fiction, currently reading "The Ethical Slut", "Sex At Dawn" and "Urban Tantra". Until recently, I worked 14-16hrs/day and rarely had time to do anything, Now that I'm on my own, all my time is tied up working, studying and enjoying life, so I'm still not reading for fun.

I don't really watch much TV and that includes movies but I do like anything by Mel Brooks, or old John Wayne movies; I'd really rather be doing something outside, but we will download a movie from time to time...anything from a war movie to a girlie flick. I also like downloading videos from www.twoknottyboys.com and learning new tricks to keep things interesting.

If I do see or hear of a TV show I like (Firefly and Dexter are my favorites), I just download the whole series and make a party out of it.

I like all music but I've developed a liking for Australian country. Check out Lee Kernaghan, The Sunny Cowgirls, Emma Kelly, Slim Dusty and a few others or check out http://tinyurl.com/ozcountry or http://tinyurl.com/ozcountry2 for my favorite playlists. It sounds a lot like our country music from 15 years ago...or like one of my friends remarked, it sounds more country than country. Half the fun is picking out the cultural differences in the music and videos...words, idioms, vehicles used etc

I'm pretty omnivorous. I look for foods that I haven't tried yet in restaurants and have been known to tell the waiter in a Vietnamese restaurant to surprise me. I like to make my own sushi or invent other new dishes but can in no way be called "a chef"
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A loaded question...do we need to start at the bottom of Maszlow's pyramid and work up? Perhaps they are really asking what I find important in my life? I'll get back to you on that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've noticed that most of my matches are younger than me. Not sure what to say to that....After raising 3 kids alone for most of their lives and escaping from Fundamentalist Christianity, I guess I am a bit more open to new ideas than most and maybe that shows up in my attitudes and beliefs. Either way, I'm not opposed to age differences....as long as we're not getting married, it's not like one of us will be drawing social security as the other is still looking for themselves; it's friendship, dating and having a good time, not a lifetime commitment. I'm still not particularly drawn to one age range over another and refuse to predefine what/who I'm looking for so don't let mere numbers stand in the way of what might be a fun and educational friendship or relationship for us both.

Several religion tests said I was Wiccan, and I am interested in learning more or meeting others who practice it, but I am not Wiccan myself. My background is Native American and my beliefs (not religion) have always leaned that way pretty strongly; I consider myself an eclectic pagan following a primarily Native path. I really enjoy the Unitarian church that I attend as they are supportive of my son and I as we each seek our own paths. I spend a lot of time thinking about how to make the world a better place....or at least my little corner of it....and actually succeeding at it much of the time. I've been spending a lot of time lately trying to figure out my version of the truth and regardless of where I find it, am positively eternally grateful for such a beautiful world to live in; I just hope to learn as much as possible about it in the time I have allotted.

I have no problem with any belief system; I think that whatever anyone believes is the truth for them and will support and celebrate their right to worship a Flying Blueberry Twinkie or nothing at all if they so choose. As a veteran, I was willing to fight to defend the right to both freedom of and freedom from religion and still feel very strongly about this. If you somehow think that your beliefs are better than anyone else's (especially if you think you should "show them the light"), please do us both a favor and and click the back button on your screen; it will save us both a bit of angst as I am against anyone trying to convert me or others, whether they do it by trying to convince me I'm wrong or by flying airplanes into buildings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing we do every night Pinky....TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm Sagittarius? That I'm a card-carrying member of the AANR?

I am polyamorous. If you're not sure what that means, check out www.morethantwo.com; my beliefs are very much in line with that website and with the book "The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures". I believe that it is unethical for any person to limit, control, or otherwise manipulate another person without their explicit permission (ie a consensual Dom/sub relationship), including telling them who they can see, talk to, sleep with, or fall in love with. I believe that the same rules apply to all, so no, I am not expecting monogamy from you either; in fact, I prefer that you be OK with being nonmonogamous on your end as well as that will help avoid mucho drama and resentment down the road. I am not a harem hunter as I do not believe in double standards; you have the exact same freedoms that I do.

Please don't think this means that I avoid commitment. While I'm not desperately seeking my soulmate and I'm fine with casual dating and exploring, I'm also open to finding a life partner or two. Eventually I would like to live in a big house or collection of houses (a tinyhouse collective maybe?) on a sustainable farmstead with several of my closest loved ones and their closest love ones, all sharing resources and helping each other through life.

While I think that some day a poly intentional family would be great, I'm in no hurry as I learn how to make this work for everyone concerned. Unconditional complete honesty and love for humanity are major values of mine and you can google the word compersion to learn more about where I'm coming from. Also, while I may have some kinkier interests, I am not a sadist and I enjoy vanilla as much as any other flavor. I do have a thing for rope though....

I am seeing someone quite seriously with no plans to change that. It's also OK if you are seeing others as well as I don't do jealousy or possessiveness nor do I think it is ethical for one person to control another by telling them what they can and cannot do; all I can say is what I will and will not allow to be done to me.

Also, while I would probably enjoy being good friends with your other significant others (the people I like tend to pick interesting people to be around) and fully support gay rights, I am 100% straight with no interest in exploring.

I do not predefine a lot about who I am looking for. You know who you are; this is about who I am. If you think we might enjoy learning more about each other as friends, give me a yell and we can talk; whatever happens happens and it really is all good as long as we're totally honest and open with each other.
