I describe myself as pagan because that's what fits best. I am not very organised about it. I am much more into an intelligent, open minded, and open hearted consideration of spirituality than fantasy role playing, costumes and accessories, and elaborate rituals. I find much valid truth in studying many different paths, and I see no contradiction between pantheism and monotheism. I often find ethical atheists to be more 'spiritual' than religious folks. I recognize the 'personhood' of all critters and beings; the cat people, the bird people, the insect folks, and the faeries are just as much people as we are, and are certainly not inferior.
My Scottish, German, and Swedish ancestors predominate in my physical expression. I am a mammal who makes his own heat, with plenty to share, and I am more comfortable in cooler climes and weather. If you like to snuggle, I will definitely keep you warm on chilly nights. My eyes, ears, skin, energy, etc., are very sensitive. I love my night vision, can read a paper by the full moon, and walking through the woods on a moonless night is easy. But full summer sun and halogen flashes blind me without proper protection. I can often hear conversations in the next house or mice and bugs under the leaves on the forest floor. I empathise well and intuit keenly.
There are basically two classes here, in terms of what people are seeking. Most want a primary dyad, long term life partner, married or might as well be, kind of relationship. And then there's the 'others', folks who like being single and actively dating, open marriages and poly people, those in transition who for various reasons aren't looking for forever, or anyone else who is open to a non mainstream connection. I'm in the second group. Which leads to:
So many of the profiles I read describe idyllic lives, where you have everything you could want except a nice man to share it with. Most people in my age range looking for dates have 'arrived'. I am still on the path of becoming who I want to be, both stronger and worn from getting a PhD in the School of Hard Knocks. I've lost people very meaningful to me, and my career is not where I want it to be. I continue to improve; in some ways I've never been better.
A first glance at my profile, tests, and match questions might indicate that I'm a raging horndog. This is true. You'll need a high libido if we're going to appreciate each other sexually. I am very sensual and affectionate and cause rampant purring. Good connection and energy is very important to me, and I have the integrity to exercise my discretion. Women generally like and trust me; I'm genuinely friendly and respectful of people and of women's boundaries in particular.
I really like the sophistication of OKC's system, but I have some frustration with the questions. All together, they do a generally good job of describing and matching, but many of the questions aren't written well &/or don't offer adequate answers. I've answered a bunch, and continue to do so, but many were before the 'explanation' option existed. I'm not going to redo 1000+ questions, sorry. So if you look through my questions, know that some of my answers are the best possible compromise, and without an explanation they may not give the most accurate concept for a specific situation.
