My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
updated Aug 16th, 2014
Note: I recently decided to set all of my questions and answers to 'private'. I felt like they were spoiling the mystery of getting to know someone. That said, I've answered hundreds of questions as honestly as I could, and if we have a high match %, its for a reason.

Also, if I have 'liked' you. Its because I kinda do. :-)
My hope is that we trust the science behind the match %, and get together to see how we do in person. And in that respect, I'm very flexible. Your time, your rules. Because science suggests it takes People about 3-mins of in-person time for us both to know how things are going to turn out over time.

We could each write our own library of congress, and we wouldn't know more than we do after 3-mins of first impressions, on top of a high match %...

So, Guys are like shoes?

Best answers so far include:
"You need a good pair for every occasion"
"Some are made for walking and some for showing off"
"You get what you pay for"
"The old ones I've had forever are my favorite"
"I've got a whole closet full of them"
etc, etc, etc....

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.” — Rumi

I find myself as somewhat socially awkward introvert and without a good understanding of how the world and everything works. And I doubt I'll ever figure everything out. But I do like thinking about all the wonderful mystries of life, especially with small groups of friends!

And my personal awareness of my own incompletness, often makes me extremely open to accepting others exactly as they are. People often comment that I'm more open-minded than most people they know. My guess is that in learning to accept myself 'as I am' for who I am, I've learned to accept everyone else for who they are. And yes, I'm a huge believer in biodiversity, memetic diversity, and relational diversity.

«If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!»
—Shel Silverstein

«Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.»
-Helen Keller.

And yes, if you are a dreamer, you are very welcome in my small corner of the world. And I would love to know more about all that you have seen, felt, heard and experienced on your life journey to date.

— Intro:

So who am I? As far as I can tell, I'm the following type.

I'm a demisexual, sapiosexual hedonist. I fall in love easily and adore the simple things in life, relationships, science, myth and all the creatures in the natural world.

I'm somewhat 'Kinky', but more accurately I'm extremely playful. I love exploring boundaries with others in safe, sane and consensual ways.

For some people pushing boundaries means, holding hands in a public park with someone they barely know. For others, it's something 'fifty shades darker'. And for me, it's the pure childhood joy of being there while you push beyond your comfort zone. And yes, if you wanna partner in crime, feel free to give me a call.

And I'm a Dad. I have joint physical, joint legal, joint emotional, joint spiritual, joint recreational, joint educational and joint economic custody of 3 wonderful kids. These 3 very special persons are my primary focus in life. And everything else I do or spend time on is a distant secondary concern.

and if you'd like to know more about any of the above, feel free to ask!

What else?

Well, I also have a superpower...No matter what your truth/reality is, I can probably handle it.

Got drama? No problem.
Got rules? Easy-peasy.
Got requests? Let's hear them.

But like all superpowers, my abilities come with some fatal flaws…

I only know what you tell me, I can't read minds, and I love you forever if you could openly communicate your needs, wants, wishes, ideals, fears, dreams and fantasies with me...and in return I promise to listen, and treat this information with the respect and care that it deserves.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just hav'n fun.

I'm poly-friendly, kink-friendly, sex worker friendly, bisexual friendly, alternative lifestyle friendly, kid friendly, etc, etc.

I grew-up poor, and ended-up well off, and I made friends all along the way, between the top 1% to the bottom 10%.

I have a low key personality, which makes it easy for people trust me. I've worked for well-known companies and I look like an average joe with 3 kids.

As far as my big goals in life go, My kids are my life. My interpersonal friendships and finding community are a close second. And everything else is third. And yes, this includes career and everything else life has to offer...

And yes, there is still room for you. Or at least I hope so. Life partners that help each other out. That are there when they need each other. That share time and energy together will always be more productive and enjoyable than any life alone.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at keeping life simple. I love free time, and maintain this lifestyle by keeping things focused on a few high priorities, and not worrying about the rest.

And I'm pretty good with kids. I grew up in a big family with lots of cousins, and I've carried this experience with me into my adult life.

And I'm really good at thinking life through and living the well examined life...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm a happy-go-lucky guy. That I'm not afraid of living life. And that I see the World differently than most. That said, some of my closer friends will say:
That I need to plan more and worry more. That I need to be more guarded in my interactions with others. That the truth isn't always the most important thing in life, and that I could use a little more common sense.

But I'm a kid at heart. Unaffraid of what's benieth the muddy water, as I leap into the wishing pool left by the rain clouds. And I'm in constant search for others to swap life stories and adventure tales with.

Where have you gone, what did you see, how did you feel and what did you learn? Most people find me a curious listener with wide eyes, an open heart, and all the time in the world when we're together.
