I will soon move out of my home, rent it out, and buy a camper, then spend at least a year traveling, camping, hiking, and working on small organic farms. I did something similar for a summer a while back.
(Looking for tenants for my condo has made me realize that compared to a lot of people, I really have my shit together.)
I work part-time as a writer, which I can do from anywhere. A combination of inheritance (my dad died when I was 17) and good investing has allowed me to work part-time most of my adult life. I try to live a simple life, and I donate to charity every month.
In one-on-one situations, I am fairly extroverted, but in group settings, I can be somewhat introverted. I like getting to know who people really are.

I strive to be:
- calm and patient
People use words like "relationship," "casual," and "serious" as shorthand for expressing their true feelings and desires. I find that pretty useless. We should talk about and think about our feelings and desires in detail, not using loaded single-word expressions.
What I'm looking for
I don't care if you are a waitress, a PhD, a hipster, or a cheerleader (or all of the above). I only care whether you're a well-adjusted, positive person who wants to make a connection.
I'm open to dating women of pretty much any age, but I would only have kids with someone younger than me. I want to have kids in, say, my 40s. (Have my own and/or adopt. I like both ideas.)
I have a lot of respect for both monogamous and non-monogamous relationships, as long as communication and honesty are held paramount. Open relationships are fun and challenging and progressive. Being that I'm about to travel a lot, monogamy probably isn't in the cards right now. In all my relationships, working to avoid jealousy and possessiveness is a must.
Definitely want: Dates, companionship, affection.
Probably want: Sex, sleepovers, romantic feelings.
May want with the right woman, eventually: Exclusivity, deep emotional involvement, happily ever after, kids.
