I'm in a polyamorous relationship with Ladyblue711 and Glypher. I've been married to Ladyblue711 for 30 years. Glypher and I've been together for seven years. Glypher has shown me alot about who I really am and what I'm really looking for in life.
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and I spent a few years in North Dakota. I was kicked out of Washington High School in '79, six months before graduation.
After two years at Portland Community College and a tumultuous courtship, I married Ladyblue711 in '81 and I've been with her since. I sincerely and openly love her and will all my life. Moreover, I am indebted to her for the kindness, patience and charity she has shown me. I'm not an easy guy to be with.
We have three adult children, two sons who have grown into men who I'm very proud of. And a special needs daughter, who is overly independent for her own good.
I joined the Army in '85 and spent some time at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin and Bitburg Air Base in Bitburg, Germany. Though I was woefully ignorant of it at the time, I really enjoyed the military and regret not staying in. I really loved Europe. I returned to the World in '89 and have spent the interceding years working a series of uneventful, mind numbing jobs.
In 2004 I fell in love with and began a polyamorous relationship with Glypher, a young Englishwoman I met playing an online RPG. She is my soulmate and best friend and I love her more than I can say. She, more than any other influence, has promoted my growth in the last seven years. I think I've grown more in that time than I have since I left the Army in '88.
I enjoy reading, writing, history and movies. RPGs and video games. I prefer microbrews and imported beers. I like chocolate and coffee. I smoke a pipe and cigars regularly, and occasionally, socially an imported cigarette or rag. I also enjoy travelling. And walking through parks and heavily wooded areas.
