I work hard to be empathic, and I maintain relationships with people that disagree with me. I'm still trying to understand why a childhood friend voluntarily served two tours in Iraq. (Update: said friend is now an organic farmer on a formerly-Amish farm. War changes people.)
I'm a romantic, but in the Gatsby sort of sense rather than the Danielle Steel one. I think "Wonder Boys" is one of the greatest films ever, but I'm worried that it doesn't pass the Bechdel test.
I'm not religious about anything. I like the gnostic idea that the serpent was the good force. I think gender stereotypes are appropriate only if they're your kink.
I'm an existentialist. This does not mean that I see the world as some sort of horrible, meaningless mechanical progression of physics. Instead, I see it as an amazing, meaningless, and beautiful canvas on which we layer even more beautiful and amazing meaning.
I believe in responsibility. I looked after my amazing dog for 15 wonderful years, and I'm now finding how little that experience prepared me for being a dad. At the same time, I sure hope I never entirely grow up. Peter Pan all the way. I want to hang on to my beginner's mind. I don't want to think I have all the answers. Life is messy and fucked up and imprecise and I love it that way.
I am playful, rebellious, and immature.
You're queer. You're okay with the fact that I already have a primary partner. (We mostly date separately, but sometimes together.) You already have a primary partner or other support network of your own.
You're opinionated, but open minded.
