My self-summary
I've never been a fan of these self summary things. I always sound like an arrogant liar or self destructive, depending on the day. I"m just someone who's interested in talking to strangers

I'm a philosopher and a sailor. I like to travel and I like to have real experiences. I've come to a point in my life where my free time has become fairly valuable to me, so I'm really not interested in wasting it.

But then, wasted time is a bit of a perception issue. I'm great with sitting quietly and doing nothing, I just want to choose to do it.

I don't like getting jerked around, and I don't like lies.

I'm honest, to a fault.

I was a deckhand on the U.S. Brig Niagara till recently, but the winter has come. I'm on a long rout south. She's a damned sexy boat and you know you want her. Wherever my profile says I am, it's probably briefly

So I find myself having a hard time expressing exactly what I want or how it plays into my situation at the moment. My "what I'm looking for" thing doesn't really express it right. I thrive on meaning and passion, but I can only handle so much of it right now. I'm in various ports for four or five days at a time, just kind of bopping about.

I guess I should be as clear as possible. I am in a relationship, but I'm also a sailor, and she may be becoming a sailor as well. With those things in mind, we have come to an understanding. We are together, but we are also often a long ways apart. We are allowed to be with other people during that time. It's somewhere between poly and pragmatic. She's never been in an open relationship before, so we're still figuring out boundries. So you and me, we could be friends, we could casually date, we could sleep together. I almost certainly will not leave her for you, however. If you find this offensive, you should likely move along.

Also, my significant other is somewhat interested in meeting a girl that she can explore things with. She doesn't have a profile in here, so I'm acting as a facilitator.

If you want to be friends, by all means, message me.

The way this plays out is this. If we hang out, there's a decent chance I'm going to start caring about you quickly. If theres chemistry and something sparks, even if it's just for a night, I'll kiss you on the forehead afterwards and tell you you're lovely.

I have no real expectations, because I can't. I can't stay here, and that has nothing to do with any of you; I'm just a sailor.

And if it's just a couple of drinks somewhere quiet and a great conversation, well, I love that too. I just generally like people, so that's what I'm looking for... people.

As an additional thing, I really want to go exploring the salvage islands on the Intercostal Waterway, and really want an exploring partner. If that sounds like fun to you, do get in touch.

I am a man, you don't meet, every day
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm mostly either out in the middle of the gulf of mexico, in canada, or in NSB working with my dad on our schooner.
I’m really good at
Jack of all trades, master of none... Well, I am actually a really good storyteller

I'm also pretty good at having a basic conceptual understanding of quantum physics and can sing sea shanties with the best of them.

I'm told I give good advice and am very affectionate.

Not the greatest sailor in the world yet, but I'm working on it. Apparently I do alright.

Also, I've done a fair bit of fencing and historical combat with a focus on swords.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told my eyes are beautiful; it is just about the only compliment I actually will accept comfortably.
After that it's probably the long hair and beard, shortly followed by zany stories.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: Fear Nothing, Seize the Night, Kingdome Come, Watchmen, The Republic, Tao Te Jing, Identity Crisis, The adventures of the Samurai Cat, The Little Prince

The six things I could never do without
A Tall Ship
A Star to Sail Her By
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything

I am aware that's kind of a stock answer, but I swear it's the truth. I weigh the morality of soap. I ponder the meaning of justice, I dream about a world with more ice cream. I connect the disparate and try to make sense of it all.

And it has been pointed out to me that there is actually a trend for murder rates to go up as ice cream sales go up... this is because both trends tend to rise when it's hot; stop blaming the ice cream, it's innocent and wonderful

I've also noticed that I don't trust people who have the same facial expression in every picture.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with the crew, likely at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Open book. I'll tell you anything you want to know, and likely a few you didn't want to.
I’m looking for

You should message me if
You want to talk to someone. Would like a beer or a cup of coffee and an interesting conversation.

If you want to go exploring uninhabited islands

Think you could take me in a swordfight or friendly brawl

You've ever dreamed of a torrid affair with a sailor.
You can't blame me for trying.
