I don't do the Poly thing. I don't believe you can share true romantic love across multiple partners and people who do are deluding themselves because they are unhappy and selfish. Love is a finite thing, as are all emotions, they are measured in the amount of time and energy you invest into them and the people you love. Sorry I feel the need to say that on this site though since I keep getting invites and messages from people who are Poly. I also am NOT a one night stand kind of guy, I find it a little disheartening I have to mention that. Casual sex is just not my thing, I require emotional attachment to someone before I begin a sexual relationship. I'm kind of a walking contradiction in this because I believe in a progressive world and mind set, I have friends who are Poly and Pansexual they know my stance on it and disagree. I accept not everyone has the same views in the world and I'm not about to try and force mine on anyone else.
I consider myself an enlightened liberal minded feminist, but just because I'm liberal doesn't mean I choose the same life style as others. I am a true liberal in that I believe everyone has the right to live the life they want and choose. I will never tell someone that the way they want to be is wrong this includes those right wing fundamentalist. I don't agree with that life style, but it doesn't mean you can't live it. This tends to cause more confusion in people than I intend to and I'm sorry for that. I believe that gender norms and stereotypes should not be forced upon people and the fact society does is wrong and should be seen for what is really happening. At the same time I recognize that some people choose to align themselves with those roles and will not chastise them for it. The only thing I ever ask of anyone in my social circle is to truly question why they do what they do and to ask themselves if it is what they really want.
I sound kind of abrasive at the moment, but the truth is I'm not. I have a very good network of friends who love and care for me, they know me as a joking silly person who really cares. I'm not going to say I'm always nice, I can be a real ass at times too; after all we are just human. When I am in a relationship though I commit myself 100% to that person. I'm the kind of guy who gives back-rubs if you're having a rough day, I remember all your favorite things and try to surprise you with stuff in our relationship. I like to make people smile, and I'm one hell of a generous lover. This may all sound like I'm tooting my own horn, but isn't that the point of your self description to list your qualities?
I don't know what it is I end up liking in a partner, I just know when I do. I don't believe a damn thing about the Match rating on this site. Even if I do the day I originally filled out those questions was a long time ago and I'm not that person anymore. Hard to go back and change them all though so I've been lazy about it.
