Greetings! I'm a happily married polyamorous Zen Buddhist from Philadelphia.
I'm here looking for basically two things:
New people to hang out with, in the categories of "people interested in RPGs/board gaming who're in my local area" and "people who need a canoeing buddy".
Polyamorous dating--my wife and I are in an open marriage, and in particular I'm of a mindset that says that love only grows when its shared more widely.
For the latter, I'm open to a lot of different types of people, but I do ask two things:
I'm serious when I want someone who's a friend as well as a lover-- I need to be able to talk to you about something other than the moment. And there should be something about you that's different or unique enough to catch my attention--being a computer guy, I deal with enough bland homogenized stuff all day, I like my friends and/or lovers to have something eclectic about them.
Why OKCupid? This is one of the few dating sites that is supportive of the open/poly lifestyle--it's the only middle ground I've found between the sleazy mostly-scam "adult" dating sites and the typical makes-assumptions-about-your-single-status sites.
I stalk people repeatedly all the time on here. I have trouble attaching screen names to personalities until I've seen 'em a few times, and I also tend to start looking at Quiver results on my Droid and then never get around to messaging them until a few days later.
Related to that, I have a habit of taking a quickmatch or quiver result and randomly clicking on people in the "similar people" sidebar. This is why I appear to be stalking a lot of truly random people.
I am large, bearded, and melodious.
One of these days I need to put some pictures back up, but discretion was a little more important to me there for a bit. The current profile pic is about how majestic my mane is right now.
