My self-summary
Until recently I was in a flexible partnership with an amazing woman I met here. She knows me well, and offers the following testimonial:

"This man is like caramel pudding with dark chocolate chunks throughout....then a crunch when you least expect it.

He's smooth and silky, physically and incredibly easy to get along with....doesn't trip on sh*t, stays on his side of the fence, and is a great communicator (most of the time).

He's also got great, well-thought out progressive/radical politics, and can discuss history and current events intelligently, without posturing (all too rare among tall, blue-eyed white males).

He's implicitly and explicitly feminist, and is smart and sexy enough to be able to separate out sexual power dynamics (for example, if you have a submissive streak...) from real world egalitarianism.

He's always up for a fun time, especially in the social realm, and generally has sparkling ideas of his own for what to do on a date, as well. He's a happy camper, for the most part, who can play on many levels, hold you when you're sad, and listen without trying to fix it. Trustworthy, sane, warm funny, and sexy as hell....what's not to love?"

Why did we part ways?

I'm on a journey that is likely to take me to a number of places over the next two years.

What am I looking for?

Someone to enjoy the moment with.

Someone who appreciates me and respects my journey.

Perhaps someone who is herself a traveler or in transition, and who gets it.
