Painfully long (you were warned;): I'm an Idealist with a capital I. My hedonism tends towards the simple pleasures. Learning, good conversation, young red wines, sunbathing, running, painfully hot tubs, lingering hot showers, and longer, hotter....
Speaking of creative impulses: my -other- creative outlet is also my most favored path of professional bliss. You could almost typify me as the starving artist - though I'm not the typical type - I serial tech entrepreneur. (What does that mean? Mostly that I eat lots of cereal..;)
I'm not really a Geek's geek - more a technological creativity bohemian. I generally dislike money, and our sick, sad culture of material mis-measure and desperate external validation. I value unique life experiences, not objects. If the fates smile on me and a venture gets me out of self imposed poverty, I'll explore more foreign cultures, or my creativity (maybe by doing a neat Burn project, starting a some non-profits to save the world, etc.) What I wouldn't do is buy a hummer.
As for matches... well - I've been losing friends and family to places like Florida and Fresno, (and, sadly, to failed tech ventures) so I wouldn't turn down the finding of friends, "benefits" or no - especially the rarest of rare: good peoples (you know who you are;).
What's sexy to me... I don't think there's a blackly-artful formula, and there certainly are no hard 'n cold body sizes or measurements. (I can't really comprehend limitations by eye/hair color, height, income, race, job, etc.) Neither do I get the point of exactly matching interest - after all, I want to both teach and be taught, lead and be led on new adventures, intellectual or bodily!
Ultimately, I'd hope to find an adventurous partner to perpetrate petty crimes again inhumanity... to explore life's ups and downs with a default, knowing kitty-catty smirk... a comfortable life switch... a gal who's paid her dues, and isn't bitter about it even if they haven't yet paid off... a She who revels in Her passions, expertise, and/or intelligences... someone who participates joyfully in the infinite sorrows of the world.
If history is any guide - I seem to have many fem friends who strangely... prefer wallets to purses... sit through the end credits of movies (?!)... have multiple artistic/creative outlets... aren't concerned too much about makeup... thrift shop b/c they enjoy found art... have rescued pets... get along too well with their personal demons... aren't easily categorized... & do things like fly, scuba dive, improv, motorcycle, The Burn, or...?
I am a prolix, demiurgic, quixotic bohemian, and actually as claimed
