I am a sweet, understanding, laid back individual with a more than a normal share of comedic timing and silliness mixed in. I am very gregarious and I feel that one of my greatest characteristics is meeting new people and making them feel like we've been friends forever.
I'm constantly coming up with new stories to write about and would like to think of myself as adventurous looking for new ways to experience life. I talk with strangers in line and people on the street. I am not afraid to take the chance at doing things that might make me look silly or foolish, a close friend calls me Adorkable. It is just life and being embarrassed is just as exciting of an emotion as falling in love. If you don't take a chance, the opportunity is lost.
I like exploring cities, parks, museums, or just listening to the wind with my eyes closed and feeling the sun set on my face while listening to the waves crash on a beach. I constantly am trying new things even when I fail, I learn. I love live outdoor concerts, live theater, and watching anyone create art out of seemingly thin air. I enjoy going street parties because the music, the energy, the fun just brings everyone together in such a universal way.
I enjoy originality and am interested in creative and quirky people that are able to see the world for what it is and for what it could be. I enjoy being with people that are not afraid of trying something new and sometimes scary, always open minded and willing and able to looking at something from a different point of view. I'm always open to someone that can be free to make friendships and knows what it takes to keep that friendship growing.
I'm a very open person with a damaged (but healed) past and more than willing to share my life, experiences, and thoughts. However, I cannot learn about you if you will not do the same. I like to share but it doesn't mean it is all heavy and serious topics all the time. In fact, most of the time, I prefer to laugh. I laugh out loud and enjoy the silly moments I have shared with friends just as much. If you make me laugh, think, and blush within five minutes, I know we will be friends forever.
I have been working on losing weight gained since a back injury and have been hitting the gym. It has been a serious challenge at times since my injury and two surgeries did a number to my body. However, it is for me, my health, and hopefully a long healthy life.
And now for dating...
I am in an open (poly, polyamorous, polyamory) relationship with a wonderful and beautiful woman that I have been with for nearly 25 years (send her a note if you like, to Nayla_m). I talk openly with her about everything including dates and possible relationships, so you should be comfortable with this and possibly meeting her at some point. Because we are open and poly, secrets just don't happen. As I've said, I enjoy meeting new people for friendship and really enjoy dating.
If you are still reading and all this is still OK with you, please feel free to send me a note and say hello, I promise I won't bite.
I am writer, sweet, and silly
