Right off the bat, let me say I am happily married and plan to stay that way. Yes, my wife knows about this account. We have no secrets from each other. She actually proofread this summary. We are a fun loving, stable couple who have been married for over 23 years. We are both looking for that special someone to join our family for a loving, committed, long term relationship.
So who am I? I am a very devoted, loving husband, father of 3 grown boys, "PawPaw" to 2 wonderful grandchildren, a practical man who is a "jack of all trades" type and a caring, compassionate friend.
Not to sound immodest, but I am one of the "good guys." I'm no "knight in shining armor," though. A knight in shining armor is a man whose metal has never truly been tested. Life has certainly tested this knight.
I am playful and fun loving with a good sense of humor. I can laugh at myself as easily as I can at others. I like to pick and play and love someone who can take as well as they give and vice versa.
I am a hopeless romantic who loves deeply and unconditionally. I enjoy sex as much as the next nympomaniac (LOL), but I also like cuddling up on the couch or even better...by a campfire.
I love being outdoors. Hiking, camping (tent & sleeping bag outside type camping) and swimming are some of my favorite things.
I am Polyamorous (Poly). I firmly believe it is possible to love more than one person at a time. I think when we put limits on the love we allow ourselves to give, we also limit the amount of love we could receive. No, I don't claim it is easy. It takes hard work and continuous, open and honest communication from everyone in the relationship. Yes, you also open yourself up to more possible heartbreak, but to me, the potential gains more than outweigh the risks.
I have a kinky side and am proud of it. I am active in the local Leather community and the BDSM scene in general. I am currently in a Master/slave relationship with my wife and am looking to expand our core family unit. The perfect fit would be a poly, primal, switch/submissive female who could be the Alpha female over my slave. Again, yes, the wife is aware of and fully in support of bringing a new partner into our family.
Some of my favorite quotes:
