OkCupid searches are generally conducted when one is looking for full-time positions, I recognize. I'm looking for something different: I'd like a girlfriend for Sundays, and I'm open to options between fully platonic and basic benefits (more on benefits later).
Sunday is my most relaxed day of the week. Echo_location (hereafter, E) has regular engagements with his friends, and I'm looking to make some friends of own in town.
There are a few big details for me to mention up-front. E and I are in a happy LTR relationship of 4+ years. Our relationship is "semi-open": we enjoy dating and playing with common partners, but we also have some partners of our own.
I haven't pursued having any of my own partners in the last few years, but I'm interested in forming new close friendships/partnerings now.
... and about those benefits?
I'm most interested in basic benefits - cuddly, make-out type stuff. There's definitely some room for more, and particularly so for partners who are also bisexual. E and I like to play together with other people. Check our joint profile e_and_r for more about that part of my life.
My main outdoor passion is scuba diving. I hold SSI Master Diver certification and I'm going do my 100th dive (traditionally done naked) sometime in September 2015.
My other outdoor passions are sea kayaking, Stand-Up Paddling, and a little bit of hiking. I want to start snow-shoeing next winter. I put on a few extra pounds when I moved to America's dairy land (cheese! fried cheese! custard!) and would love to find a Couch-to-5K training buddy.
However, don't confuse me with someone who genuinely lives outdoors - I am in equal part a couch potato. My indoor hobbies include consuming vast amounts of internet news, watching ensemble TV shows on Netflix, reading, and studying foreign languages (I speak five).
