It's been a while since I have been on here and I have changed considerably. First, I am still in an open relationship. Second I have come to identify as something of an asexual/demisexual meaning I have little to no drive for sex and generally am not interested at all until I form a deep meaningful connection with someone. I don't hate sex I just find it for the most part uninteresting. I am currently looking to build deep relationships with people of a non-sexual nature. I'm open to the possibility of having a dating/romantic relationship with others as well but with an understanding that I don't have much of a sex drive (I'm in an open relationship that for the most part has a doom date due to our differences in life aspirations. I care for him deeply but in the long run its likely not going to last). That being said I'm completely ok with my partners getting their "jollys" elsewhere as I understand and respect their need for sex. Ultimately and ideally I would find another asexual (or someone with a low sex drive) and have a monogamous long-term relationship with them but until that magical day arrives I'm happy with this.
I'm just your typical artistic stranger with an aptitude for video games, photography and psychology (sort that out).
I am really into learning...about well... anything.
I love astronomy, cultures, religions, psychology, philosophy and any adventure where I get to explore things (ie; abandoned buildings, hiking, camping, travel)
I highly value the qualities of Compassion, Wisdom and Humor.
I'm quirky and off beat at times. Painfully awkward in large groups (unless its among nerds then I'm the life of the party). I really enjoy having a few really close friends to spend time with. I would rather work on building a deep relationship with just a few people then have a billion acquaintances.
That probably sums me up pretty well at least for now let's save some for actual conversation shall we?
I'm also pursuing some hobbies in art photography, yoga, belly dancing, and body painting.
Playing around on Photoshop
Being awkward but pulling it off as quirky.
I'm pretty short and I laugh a lot, about everything, especially my own failings.
I read a ton of contemplative psychology and positive psychology books and enjoy them. I also really like anything on taoism. As far as actual novels are concerned I really enjoyed;
The Mistborn series
The Neverending Story
The Torn Skirt
Go Ask Alice
Let the Right One In (also a movie)
Lord of the Rings trilogy
Star Wars books (and movies)
Music: (prepare for a random assortment from my top 25 most played list in itunes)
Belle and Sabastian
Be Good Tanyas
The Birthday Massacre
Iron and Wine
Maxwell Hughs (local favorite amazing guitarist)
Noah and the Whale
and finally Smashing Pumpkins has and probably always will be my favorite band (old stuff mostly) The Album Adore is just AMAZING.
Movies: I am a bit of a film junkie. I love horror movies! especially foreign ones. Here is yet another random incomplete list.
Tale of Two Sisters
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Igby Goes Down
The Brothers Bloom
Let the Right One In
Food: I love spicy food and sweet food and well...spicy sweet food. Indian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican are all some of my favorites weirdly enough I'm not big on American food.
My Dad (he is pretty cool and has helped me out a lot)
A notebook to sketch/write in
Ridiculously colorful socks (probably best not to ask)
You're asexual and either interested in a relationship or just interested in being friends. It would be great to talk to like minded people.
You want to do art together.
