-you are turned on by guys into social justice;
-you are interested in meeting and getting to know each other as
friends first and seeing what develops;

I'm a straight white guy, but I'm difficult to categorize beyond that. I do yoga, read philosophy, and watch basketball during the playoffs. I'm guided by my passions. I fell in love with sociology in college, so I made it my major, and eventually got a graduate degree in it. I was fascinated by readings about West African culture and its iterations I saw while growing up in south Louisiana, so I joined the Peace Corps and served in Niger to learn more. The silence of village life gave me a chance to contemplate my own life and reconsider religion and spirituality. So, when I returned to the U.S., I befriended a Jesuit and did several short, silent retreats, though I'm not a Christian and he/they knew this--they welcomed explorers and questioners.
I then moved West, to Colorado, for graduate school. In the mountains, I pursued intellectual and sexual adventures, and developed my chosen family. I've learned that I like to be surrounded by thoughtful, passionate, and fun folks who want to make the world a better place.
I'm in the Bay area and I can't imagine ever leaving. I want to meet a woman who is of open mind and heart, who wants to know me and be known by me. Someone who wants to connect intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and sexually.
