...Much of a reader, I feel I'm wasting time w/a newspaper,
when I could be hearing the news/science/natgeo, pay
attention to the juicy parts then go back to cooking/
writing a letter/whatever. Is that what they call
"multi-tasking" these days? ;c)
...Shallow. I feel things intensely and privately unless in a meaningful relationship I am quite willing to share feelings. A person
is never wrong in their beliefs - they chose them and own them.
...A liar. One may not like "brutal honesty" but how are they
going to progress if I tell them what they WANT to hear? And what would my life be knowing that I had prioritized my wants/desires over anothe'rs needs?
Granted, there is a matter of choosing the right time
but in the long run they'll have to deal with it anyway.
Honesty is a function of integrity.
...Bigoted or infected with over-opinionation. There are more
important issues in life that need fixing.
To address the more serious stuff: I have to write down the punch-line in order to remember a good joke. I put things in the microwave and when it dings, I open the fridge and stand there wondering why I wanted something cold. I write essays to myself in Word then delete them. Don't use spell-checker, if I fucked-up I just did. I rarely get lost but when I do, I can usually get back to the point that I began doubting myself...and not afraid to knock on a door for directions since I was too dumb to read the map correctly in the first place! UPDATE: (Ahh, GPS has negated all that stuff but I still stop for the human interface! Not to infer that I get lost frequently - only that I prefer lighter clothing on women. Uh, WHAT?...ummm, where was I... because darks don't show textures or highlight shadows? No, you.....only that it's fun to imagine the story(s) that folks will tell their friends about "That Day They Stopped for Directions"!) BACK TO Light vs. Dark... the same reason I prefer black and white/sepia photography over color. The sound of children laughing turns me on just as much as hearing screeching tires turns me off. I probably use more clorox that the average man. I love my truck. And it's red. I didn't appreciate Freddie Mercury 'till after he died. I love Beethoven and wonder if his creations would have been different if he could have heard like you and me. I love the smell of fresh-cut grass so my two-hour job takes me four hours, or five. My favorite job was my first (symbol of independence) scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbbins for $1.00 an hour and all the ice cream I could eat...and a food fight every night. The death penalty needs to be killed. I think Joan Rivers is over due for corrective surgery. I'll drive to Lake Ontario in a thunderstorm to watch the fireworks of lightening. I never minded changing poopy diapers. Soooooo...
Polyamorous, I am. I'm emotionally intact, sincere and espouse honesty. I want, (and will settle for nothing less), a relationship (at whatever level it may be) that is firmly rooted in honesty and YOU must match my level of integrity to back-up that contract. I don't care if you are 19 or 90 - don't come at me any other way. Weak of heart move on. I don't judge, we are all here seeking generally the same thing and many of us share in some of the same life-difficulties, "Sometimes it's a bitch, Sometimes it's a breeze."
I have three children, two grown and a twelve-year-old son. He and I spend lots of time together and I've never missed a school function with him, though my relationship of 28 years with his mother is permanently separated (Update 4/11: divorce started)... (UPDATE: 10/11 DIVORCE FINAL) All of it being faithful and loyal. I'll not ever stop the father/son relationship but I need, and truly desire, more than my children in my life.
I'm looking for a lady that is not afraid to express herself honestly and intimately, desires a short-term relationship, perhaps leading to long-term companionship (not the live-in type)...being there when she needs me for comfort and support, giving her what she needs at the moment to soothe her worries or anxieties - whether that be a walk-n-talk in the park or a snuggle and talk at home or a country drive, rolling in the grass or a fantastic session of love-making...hearing our laughter while we chase each other around the house. I have missed those times of sharing for years.
I'm sensually oriented guy... I like brushing my partner's hair, her scent, her caress, her head on my chest or mine on her's, listening to her purr. Her smile makes me smile. And her happiness and feeling safe are paramount to me. I'm in this for the long-run. Intimacy is not a synonym for sex to me...Intimacy is a sense needing constant nurturing for a relationship to thrive and progress. Teach the sponge in me of you and I will give, without measure.
I've been shot, set on fire (my stupidity) almost drowned saving my dive partner, and again with leg cramps, multiple broken bones, and managed to save a life in between all that.
I'm no Indiana Jones and not looking for his girlfriend either. Just a peaceful companion that's not in a hurry about anything.
I am Loved, Loving, and Grateful
