i want someone who understands what it is to share a life, who has little or no jealousy issues (because this is a major turn off and denotes little to no self confidence), and someone who can be a friend, as well as a lover.
i should probably also say that i don't just have a dog and a cat (though i do have one dog, Pluto, and one cat, Loki), i also have the most adorable ferret ever (Arian). i love animals, a lot. i let them crawl on the furniture, i am always covered in animal hair and it really doesn't bother me, sometimes it takes people some getting used to. ;)
i will add that i have a fascination with serial killers, so i watch a lot of documentaries, read lots of books, blah blah on the subject. There is something about the sociopathic personality that intrigues me. This does not mean i want to date a sociopath (shudder), it simply means that i am fascinated with the psychology behind how a person like that is created and unleashed upon this world. Some people find this creepy.
i identify as polyamorous, primarily because i do not believe that you can only ever hold love for just one person in your heart and i don't believe that i have the right to tell someone else that once they love me, they can love no other. However, usually when i fall in with a man, or a woman, i am pretty much a one man/woman woman. That does not mean that i will not be wanting to have a girlfriend/boyfriend at some point, i will. Just a head's up. i am also going to add here that i have had my heart broken one too many times by a wife suddenly changing her mind (after i had fallen in love with her and fallen in love with the whole relationship) about wanting me around, so i will not be entertaining offers from married couples. You may be totally secure in what you want, i am just not willing to take that chance again.
i am trying to be as honest and open as possible in my profile in the hopes that it will make some kind of difference in how people approach me. If it is painfully obvious that you didn't bother to read my profile when you message me, i will not respond. Also try to keep in mind that i am TALL, almost six feet tall, in flats. For this reason, if you are a man, you may not get a response simply because i may ignore your photos completely, but i will immediately check your height. If you are shorter than me, i will probably not write back because i am slightly embarrassed by this simple bit of shallowness on my part. i have dated men who are shorter than me and i have always been slightly uncomfortable in the relationship. It is all me, i get that, but it is me.
