My self-summary
"Some people think I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a jar on my desk." --Stephen King

In the immortal words of Tank Girl, ".... its been swell, but the swellings gone down!"
I've been single a couple of years - and feeling like it's time to get back into the fray! I've never been much of a "dater" (person who dates) - When I meet someone I really click with, we both know it and get clicking at such a deep level that going on a "date" and getting to know each other is pointless. I don't play games and / or hide who I am.

Me? ENFP ... a child of a somewhat lesser god... optimistic, witty, silly, passionate, uninhibited, adventurous, rationally emotive, romantic, introspective - with a great and wonky sense of humor… I've been described as perfectly imperfect, weird, a gentleman, kind and honest to a fault and good at being a good friend. So yeah, I'm one of the good guys - best kept secret... I'm more like a kinky Boy Scout than anything!

All that said, I believe my path is one of service, healing and helping with a good dose of spreading love and kindness. I have on occasion been the hero. I have championed myself and others – not always successfully on both counts – but I have the courage to try.

I believe:
*we are all ultimately responsible for our own feelings.

*every day is a good day to take stock of life in general, and consider how unpredictable it all is, how fragile and precious, and to recommit my efforts to caring for the people I love and whose lives are wound in and around my own.

*like Rob Roy MacGregor, that honor is a gift a man gives himself.

"Only a woman of pride, complexity and emotional tension is genuinely worth the act of love, and there are only two ways to get yourself one of them. Either you lie, and stain the relationship with your own sense of guile, or you accept the involvement, the emotional responsibility, the permanence she must by nature crave. I love you can be said only two ways."
~ Travis McGee, The Deep Blue Good-By

"Why do you stay in prison
When the door is so wide open ?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking."

Bonus Points:
1. You can teach me to curse, fluently, in any language other than English.
2. You know what "Kobayashi Maru" refers to without looking it up.
3. You know some ASL or are willing to learn. I am not totally deaf, I wear hearing aids and am profoundly hard of hearing without them... and I like diddling around with ASL...
4. You do not wear perfume / cologne as I have multiple chemical sensitivity.... soft earth scents are okay...

Ya that's more than 6... so sue me... Seriously: I'm a bit of a minimalist and could do without pretty much everything I "own".

A few things I definitely like doing without

* Riding on Yorick's back
* Losing containment
* Concentrating on dedicated sphincter control
* Courting the Dark Side of The Force
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not a very private person. I seem extroverted, and am sometimes, but love some cave time too. I have had a few relationships and have had a lot of alone time - I am overall happy either way. I have learned that any future relationships will only work with someone who is at least as excruciatingly passionate as I am about being completely authentic - and will accept me as I am - as I will do the same.
You should message me if
I'm too adventurous and open minded to put anything too limiting here... But girls, if you can't or won't take the time to fill your your profiles AND answer a bunch of these seemingly goofy questions - it will be difficult to get a good idea, fairly quickly, if we match up... and OKC really is pretty good at this matching thing. So please do the work. :-)
And if you have done the work.... to help us all save time please:
* Have a high "Match" percentage with me (aprox 90% - or higher).
* Be petite/thin/fit or on the low side of height/weight proportionate... petite / thin / fit is better.
* Post at least one recent photo of yourself.... and if you show up and do not look like your photos, you have to buy me drinks until you do!....or at least until I don't care! HaHa!
Oh ya, if you would like your profile photo rotated to the proper alignment - I'll fix it and send it to you... Really...
All this said - I am open to being contacted by anybody for any reason :-)
