Please be aware that I am looking to start things with a conversation. That means that messages are from both of us, not just one person. If we start to chat but I don't receive a reply, I'll simply move on because I don't want to attempt to communicate with someone who doesn't actively reciprocate my interest.
Short version: I'm an atheistic, ecofeministic, social anarchistic, pro-science, cis-hetero white male.
I am a guy getting myself back on track with a life that, for a few years, has been off the rails. But I still have a solid idea of what I want to be doing (i.e. professor of environmental sociology/social and environmental activist/advocate for social and environmental justice), so I've got that going for me.
And, while life's not been particularly nice (it's been more of a grueling endurance marathon than I'd have liked to deal with), I still find that what matters to me has consistently remained - helping people, asking questions, seeking truth, and being empathetic (especially when it is exceedingly hard to do) towards those around me.
I should add that I do have a primary partner that I do care about, but I am looking for friends and other partners who'd be interested in physically intimate friendships. Openness and honesty matters to me and that is reflected in the choices I make.
