I'm passionate about animals, the environment, living simplistically, and human sexuality. I am mostly vegetarian, try to limit animal products in my fridge and pantry, but sushi is my weakness.
My recipe for happiness: people to wholeheartedly love, a job that pays the bills that I don't dread going to, a passion I feel I am actively involved in, and some kind of exquisite happiness (the people I love, the weather, children, sex, furry and fluffy animals, education).
I am an openly sexual person, but please don't confuse that as easy to get in bed. That would probably just lead to me telling you to get yourself off. = ) I can't feel sexual about a person until I know enough to find someone sexy. I love sex blogs, books, photography, fantasies, erotica, the science behind all things sexual, people's "deep, dark" secrets that don't sound so scary to me, and having conversations about sex that are not flirtatious in nature.
I don't feel that I can ever really be someone's perfect match. I am not interested in monogamous relationships. I don't plan on getting married or having children, but I am looking for long-term relationships and I do love kids. Polyamory is important to me - I don't think I should try to confine my love to only one person in a formula that doesn't ever seem to work out. To me, commitment is about being there for someone, loving deeply, being fair, honest, open, dedicated... It's complicated in some ways, but so is monogamy. = )
I have two small tattoos: "simple moments of exquisite happiness" wrapped around one arm with a small heart and "not all those who wander are lost" on the other arm with the outline of the star of the Dunedain (soon to be shaded in).
I have a deep love for J.R.R. Tolkien's world.
