I'm not a macho dude. I try to be a good man, not a "nice guy." I am honest and direct whenever possible, but I strive to be so in a gentle, supportive manner. I'm a feminist. I've been told I do not have a chauvinistic bone in my body.
Moreover, I'm a humanist. People are flawed creatures: petty, spiteful and ignorant. But we aspire to be brave, noble and wise. Sometimes we succeed. Either way, we're all we've got.
I need companionship and a life partner. Life is good, but it would be so much better with someone to share it with.
In case it isn't obvious, I am very, very liberal. For the past 15 years, I've watched as the Democrats incompetently stagger further to the right via compromise and capitulation With its current insanity, perhaps the Tea Party/Reactionary Asshole faction has finally gone far enough to get the Dems to fight for a principle or two. But I'm not holding my breath.
I have at various times been a teacher, a writer, a filmmaker, and a photographer. I still take pictures and occasionally get my stuff into art shows. I'm still a writer, too, though I haven't written much lately. It's too easy to postpone. Currently I am looking for a job that matters yet pays the bills.
I've been single for a few years, but now I'm looking for the right someone for the long run. Short term dating is fine, but my goal here is to find the last great love of my life.
