My personal motto is: Learn from the past, look to the future, and act in the present. It captures my intent to not repeat past mistakes, to always remain goal-oriented, and to never lose my grip on the here-and-now.
My interests are varied. I enjoy amusement parks (my inner child screams "Roller coasters rule!"), Renaissance festivals, and games nights with friends. I almost crave conversations requiring depth of thought in addition to playful banter.
With only a few exceptions, I rarely get along with people my own age or older, so my friends tend to be in their late-20s to mid-30s. Because I'm future-focused, I try to keep a sense of youthfulness. OkCupid's matching algorithm bears this out in that most higher-numbered match scores ( > 85%) are with people in their early 30's.
I'm also a polyamorous person. Although I have leanings toward the poly-fidelity variety, I am not a 'Unicorn Hunter'. My primary relationship and marriage is with a wonderful, artsy, music geek -- she is Brunhilde. While we're open to dating together, it is NOT a requirement. I also have a close relationship with laurenleeb, who is a surprising exception to my normal age range. As a poly person, I'm open to additional relationships and accept that they can become primary as well. For me, polyamory is not about having more sex partners! I have never desired meaningless passion, preferring to start as friends, allowing intimacy to develop naturally.
I am contemplative, compassionate, and imaginative with a touch of playfulness and kink.
