My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cliff's Notes: ex-farmer musical and visual artist that owns an artist collective with a college education seeks brightminded individuals to make life more interesting through non-monogamous relationships that will never make babies.

Forenote: I am leaving for a couple weeks at the beginning of October to rebuild a farm ravaged by the fires in Northern California. There will be no internet there. Soon after I will be in Iowa to get my license as an Organic Farm Inspector. Then I will be in San Diego to be a lab rat for medical studies at least until the first week of January is done. Ergo, i will not be in Portland much for the next couple months.

Unabridged: I moved to Portland after a childhood on a rural organic veggie farm in northern California ( Humboldt- if you know the area, we actually grew vegetables) and a young adulthood along the border in San Diego. I did the whole college thing down there, have a degree from it. I don't use this degree all that often. I am committed to never making more humans, and hence had a vasectomy a couple years ago.

I practice non-monogamy. I am very honest about my life with those that are sharing it with me, and often my partners know each other. I can say truthfully that I have never cheated in any relationship I have been in, as I always discuss what the rules may be between myself and my partners and do not make or accept rules I intend to not follow.

I have changed a lot as a person since I started this profile many years back. I feel the name I picked for it, "attempting Life", no longer applies as it did- then I felt like I was trying to live without actually succeeding, now I feel that I continuously succeed at creating a very fulfilling existence that I will be able to look back at from my death bed ( assuming I die in a bed, rather than from an exploding helicopter or somesuch) and say "damn, that was awesome."

Veramente, non uso il mio italiano sufficente per fare questo in un manerisma inteligente. Ma, si parli meglio d'io, vorrei molto avere l'opportunita practicare con voi. Cucino un po di pasta fresca (non compro la pasta, uso uova y farina, faccio tutto da niente), compro un po di vino (si vorriste), ed facceremo una bella cena! Si vorriste parlare, sarei fare quello con vuoi!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am remodeling the house 10+ artistic friends and I live in, and much of my time goes into that and landlording it up.

I play accordion, fistfight, and do other crazy things with a pirate troupe called Ace of Ruin.

I own a van that I take on road trips with some regularity.

I try to find some time for drawing. I also would like to go out dancing more, especially of the ballroom/ salsa/ tango/ waltz variety.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I play the accordion and dance, sometimes simultaneously. I give good massages due to having taken a bit of classes for such ( 6 months schooling) and just liking to touch people. I'm good at talking to crazy people. That also relates to my being a good landlord to an artistic collective.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have nice eyes and arms, and also sport a bit more body hair than many men. Also, I often look like a pirate. At first, this was unintentional. Part of that is the utility belt I wear religiously; I NEED my tools.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like good things. I don't have favorites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Here's some things I LIKE to have: good, fresh food, an artistic means of self expression and people that wanna see or participate in that, a comfortable place to sleep, a reason to get out of bed, someone(s) that is a good reason to not get out of bed, an accordion that sounds nice, a pad of paper and something to draw on it with, a nice bike, something I don't understand and someone that understands it and likes explaining things, a metal locking suitcase full of cash and alternate identities, the ability to help people that are worth helping and make them like who I am

che' quasi niente que non posso esistere sensa, ma che molte cose che non vorrei esistere per troppo tempo sensa.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain is like a blender on eternal frappe': lots of thoughts constantly mix through and not one sits in the middle for too long.

I often am thinking about ways to make my house better.

Also, I worry about overpopulation and overpollution, and what could be done on a morally conscious level to bring that down some. Currently for me, that means never EVER creating a kid. Not that I'm against raising one eventually, just not mine. I am in the process of getting a solar array installed on my house. I'm partly freegan, so that helps reduce my environmental footprint as well. I also ride my bike and public transit to get places as much as makes sense.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Regardless of what day of the week it is, I enjoy social interaction in open, somewhat unpredictable settings. Often this involves music, always adventure, never a deadset plan. This goes for any day I don't have too much that needs to happen, don't have to wake before eleven the following, and have a cohort and direction to head.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Let's retitle this "Things that I'm willing to tell everyone that might make them not like me, and if they don't, good riddance."

1. I do the freegan thing. This means I get some of my groceries out of dumpsters, and then make delicious meals based on what I can find. Still buy some stuff ( I've only found alcohol in the dumpster six or twenty times so far). I do this both because I am in touch with the fact that I don't make much money and would rather spend it on fun things that I cannot find in dumpsters, as well as lower carbon footprint. Plus, I don't have to feel guilty about eating fillet mignon if it was going to go to waste.

2. I will never be able to make a baby with you. I had a vasectomy in 2013. In my opinion, there are simply too many other mouths on the planet already; making more people seems selfish and mean; in my opinion the likelihood of an economic, environmental, and social collapse during the lifespan of anyone created now is high. If you really feel the need to be a parent, please consider adoption!! I am, in the longterm scheme of things.

4. I like the concept of and often practice non-monogamy. I will not limit myself from the possibility of relationships with others unless I think there is a highly probable chance that I would want to spend a loooooong, infinitish time dating you.

5. I am a type 1 diabetic. This affects my ability to participate in some activities, such as hallucinogenic recreational drugs or hiking for months without coming in to society.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
one ( or more) of the following applies:
1. You're a woman/ someone female-bodied and think we might hit it off ( I have dated several alt-gendered people, but have never been into someone who did not have a vagina).
2. You want to play some music- I'm usually down to jam.
3. You want to be paid in booze to help me construct my house.
4. You want to give me lots and lots of money for no apparent reason or some reason I might be all right with.
5. You want to complain about having read such a long profile and ask for that time in your life back in the form of massages or a song.
