I am urbane, educated, and a scholar of history and languages, and sufficiently intelligent that most find me eccentric. 'Bourgeois bohemian' makes a snappy tag for me; a writer with a day job (night shift actually), 55 years old (although my birthday is a matter of dispute). I write poetry as well which I prefer to fiction, though a complex work of the latter is my present preoccupation. I live in Belltown in Downtown Seattle, and have been here 17 years. I've worked out actively for years, including power cycling, Pilates, yoga, I play squash, and especially I enjoy weightlifting, which puts 230 lb on my 5'10". I was raised a Quaker, and I'm politically radical. More find me attractive than not, though of course tastes vary. If you choose to meet me in time, love, you can confirm for yourself that I'm a very intellectual person, deep minded, passionate, and compassionate; an unusual person in many respects, and someone of integrity. I listen, I negotiate honestly, and I'm very fair. My friends would tell you that I have a sense of humor, one of style, that I make good conversation, and that I like children though I have none of my own.
I'm straight, unattached, thoroughly sex-positive, and a man of broad and non-judgmental sexual perspective. I have experience as a dominant, and in particular I enjoy spanking my partners, which I have done for years. Neither practice is a sine qua non for my companion at a given time. I would enjoy exploring tantric sexuality. Personal compatibility and, yes, love are far more important to me than any particular sexual practice or focus. I'm comfortable with polyamory and multiple relationships, and move in a milieu where others feel and act the same way both ethically and openly. Men do nothing for me above the neck or below the waist, but that said whatever gender imago turns up your volume knob this month is fine by me. I don't consider myself the 'World's Best' at anything; I simply try to make the world better two happy people at a time whether for dinner, for a night, for a season, or for keeps.
You: large of spirit and heart, and a woman who understands men; one hungry for the company of a masculine consort although a woman of purpose and the mistress of your own future. I value self-knowledge, intelligence most especially, social charm and presence of mind, and a knowing sexuality. The more you take care of yourself physically, the better. You understand the concept of quality time, and pettiness is beneath you. Your character isn't defined by where you grew up, what you wear, or how you earn a living: it's something you've built through desire, ambition, necessity, and through removing those things which limit you, though made as well with respect for others, especially those who taught you well, and who have loved you without reservation.
Be my love, and my reason, if you will, if you can; and I'll take you in hand.
