I have been a Spanish teacher at a community college and now a local university.
I strongly prefer men with long hair and beards. I am not into effeminate nor hypermasculine men. Just be yourself and not what our fraked up culture has said you should be. I'm much more likely to find you attractive when you're covered in dirt and sweat than I will when you're in a stuffy ol' suit, and kilts are just sexy anyway!
I do not go out to the bars either. I much prefer staying at home or visiting friends and spending time with the people who matter to me.
I am a very simple person who is intensely loyal and faithful to my loved ones and expect the same. Fidelity and loyalty are everything. I am very open to most things in life. I can be extremely shy and reserved, until you get to know me and/or I feel comfortable with you. Then I am likely to say just about anything.
I own my home (which is also where I grew up), live next door to my parents and my sister is on the same property, too. We all live on a family plot (about 13 acres just outside the city).
I have never felt that I had much in common with most Gay men. If you are familiar with the indigenous concept of Two Spirit, that feels like a more appropriate 'label', if I have to use one, sort of, but still not so much, trying not to be misappropriating cultures that are not my own, while recognizing that English lacks the linguistic tools to deal with it.
I read almost constantly, but my tastes in books, music and other things tends to be non-mainstream.
I speak Spanish, English, Esperanto and a little German (and bits and pieces of other languages, phrases). I love learning languages and learning about other cultures and other ways of viewing the world.
I enjoy people who challenge my thinking, but who also can admit to their own actions and behaviors, don't get all up on me, tell me how much I mean to you and then deny it all. If you lie to me even once I will kick your ass out of my life so fast your head will spin, been there done that, never again. Mean what you say and say what you mean and if you send me mixed signals I am going to tell you because I am done with that crap.
Most basically, I just want someone with whom I can live life and build something together, coming home at the end of the day, cuddling up in the evening, and just living life together.
