Introvert presenting as extroverted. I don't see it as disingenuous, it's just that sometimes jobs condition people to be quite the opposite extreme of who they are.
I want to meet someone who wants to share a meaningful relationship in whatever form that may take based on the unfolding of natural laws of biology, chemistry, and physics 😊 Long, short, casual, serious...there are merits to every experience, and I'm open to them all.
Honesty, playfulness, and passion are essential to me, and i'd hope my future partner shares or at least aspires to embody those values.
I love to write but I'm not here for a pen pal or an online relationship, they're too tedious and dystopically abstract. This site was built for people to meet other people in the flesh, period. Skip the tempting "like" button, bite the bullet and let's talk!
I've reached a point in my life where I've now assigned absolute value to things: fresh air, fine wine, mental and physical fitness, coffee (i just had to add that in again), cuddling, meditating, dancing, taking in a thunderstorm, NPR podcasts, bonsai, poetry readings... If you value one, some, or all of these, please do apply. :-)
I've got several books of fiction and poetry under my belt, and am now dabbling in creative non-fiction and screenwriting. i'm working on getting my stuff published little by little before pitching a manuscript toward first book contests.
Roadtripping as much as i can on weekends.
Most recently I started studying both the art of bonsai, and Tantra, and am relishing their conceptual similarities.

Ohhhhhh, a TYPICAL Friday night? I usually squeeze together a hot body contest at Machine, pool hustling at Gillian's, drag racing down Boylston, swimming the length of the Charles River, and then being taken via rooftop helicopter to my villa on Fire Island for the weekend where i get to be fanned with palm fronds by beautiful men :-)
...you don't default to negative thinking.
...you enjoy the outdoors or relish road trips to god knows where.
...you are a cuddlebug.
...you have the time. I'll make a robust return on your investment.
