I don't know that I have ever had a relationship without some element of power exchange involved (although I could argue that no one does).
If you are curious about kink/BDSM, or poly I am happy to answer questions.
On that big spectrum of emotional vs. logical, I tend to skew very heavily toward the logical. That is as much a warning as an advertisement.
I am a firm believer in a proper cup of tea.
Smart people make me happy. I like all manner of nerd. I value introspection and the ability to have a conversation about why you think or believe the things you do.
My favorite things about people are their idiosyncrasies. You're crazy about toothpicks? I'm fascinated. Afraid of yarn? Tell me more!
I spent many years trying be a painter of pretty pictures only to discover that the "business of art" makes me want to not be a painter. So I became a graphic designer. Eventually I want to become a land baron.
Finding the fun. I can have fun under almost any circumstances.
Witty banter. Especially if I am speaking in dirty metaphors.
I like most books. My guilty pleasure is noir and mysteries (don't judge). My only real criteria for books is that I tend to like a more contemporary writing style. I don't really think we need to read the same books to get along, but if it matters to you... I like Tom Robbins, Hemmingway, Chandler, Mosley, and a million
I like the theatre (but never come late!) and I can watch almost anything moving on a screen and enjoy it (exceptions: anything of the 'Jersey Shore'/'The Bachelor' variety). I got rid of traditional T.V. years ago so everything I watch is online.
My favorite painters are: Lucien Freud, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt, Hopper, Twombly, Monet, Van Gough, Sargeant, Kline, and a bunch more.
I can't claim that my musical tastes define me. That being said, I tend toward 'alternative' music: The Shins, Bad Religion, Metric, Alice in Chains, Deo... I also listen to classic rock and a dash of metal. And I have a weakness for harmonizing and banjos.
For news I listen to N.P.R. with a special love for "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" and "Marketplace".

6 1/2.Chili Dogs - If I need to explain this, you will never
You are smart, fun, eccentric and aren't afraid of new
If throwing a party to celebrate national nacho day seems like a fine idea.
If you hear that we're having a Ru-Paul's Drag Race
marathon/slumber party with drinking game and want to be invited.
If you would want to win a contest where first prize was getting to be the first person to rummage through an attic that's been sealed for 100 years.
