Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My deal is this: I'm in a solid long-term open relationship with a
remarkable woman (mk4935) with whom I continue to fall deeper in
love. She dates other people, I date other women. We support each
other in this and feel it's a more honest way to live. It is not
necessary that you meet her, but it is mandatory that you accept
and respect our relationship.
Atheist because I find it easier to explain things without adding
supernatural elements to the mix.
Feminist because - DUH! - women are people, but I'll elaborate.
Pro-sex work, pro-porn, pro-choice. Pro-legislation that protects
women in all of these things.
The first thing I would devote more time and energy to if I had it
is climbing. I started rockclimbing about two and a half years ago
(as an alternative to the Y membership I wasn't using enough) and
it has become a favourite part of my life. I love the individual
challenge of the sport, the meditative aspect of training your
attention on every part of your body to complete a move. [For the
climbers out there, I have sent a few 5.12s, but most days I stick
to 10's and 11's. I boulder some. Need to do a lead course.] I
would love to find some climbing partners at about the same level,
but happy to show a newbie the ropes too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Climbing, cycling, reading, planning a trip to San Fran and
Yosemite for September.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making breakfast. Most mornings start with eggs, bacon, hot cereal,
fresh grapefruit juice, coffee, steamed veg. It's the most
efficient 20 minutes of my day. I love showing off my skills in the
kitchen. Been working on a brilliant sweet potato fry recipe.
Being thoughtful. I studied science in school and was aiming to be
a physicist for a while. It trained me to be open-minded, to
remember my own bias, and to look at things from as many angles as
possible. One of my favourite quotes is something Stanley Kubrick
said about chess: "What chess teaches you is that you must sit
there calmly and think about whether it's really a good idea and
whether there are other, better ideas."
Sex. :P Seriously though, I love sex. Seems like most guys just
like putting their dicks into vaginas. I like exploring a new
partner, finding out what turns her on, giving her as much pleasure
as I'm able.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This used to say "I'm actually not all that noticeable at first,
I'm usually pretty chill," which is still accurate. But I lost a
few pounds recently and people have been commenting on my being
'skinny' or 'cut' so that's nice. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Top of the must-read list for me is a classic from the
1930's, Dale Carnegie's "How to Make Friends and Influence People."
It's like a book of social interaction cheat codes. I like stuff
like that, things that will improve my ability to live life by
reading and applying. Timothy Ferriss' "4-Hour Work Week" is
another example of something like this. I am not always the best at
applying the advice but learning the principles involved is good
Magazines: I subscribe to New Scientist and Cooks Illustrated. I
love these not just for their content, but also for their approach
to their subjects. CI takes a scientific approach to cooking, and
an unnamed founding member of NS is reported to have said that "our
philosophy at New Scientist is that science is interesting and if
you don't agree you can f*** off!"
Movies: Nothing stands out at the moment. I like the odd
documentary and there are plenty of good ones. I'll watch anything
with Cameron Diaz.
Shows: Doctor Who, Orphan Black, The Good Wife and I still watch
TBBT. I'm invested in the characters and it's 20 min of
predictabl... Whatever. I don't have to explain myself. I enjoy it.
Deal with it. Just started watching Masters of Sex and I really
Music: Oscar Peterson and Daft Punk are the only things I've
purposely listened to recently, though I did turn the volume up the
other day when "Under the Bridge" came on the radio. It's one of my
Food: I love going out to eat at places where they are passionate
about the food they serve. Two of my favourites are Canoe and
Farmer's Daughter, where you can get a seat at a counter
overlooking the kitchen and talk to the chefs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A subtle alarm clock.
A proper breakfast.
Something to climb.
Indica and a memory foam mattress.
Sativa and a bike fit for zipping around traffic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The GSElevator twitter feed and whether I should go back to school
and become a banker. ;)
I'm fascinated by the idea of free will and whether we actually
have it. If we are just a collection of atoms and chemicals
interacting, then how does consciousness arise? What am I?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Climbing or sleeping, probably, but I'm always up for live jazz, a
new restaurant, or just getting high and going for a walk in the

I've never liked this section. I have few secrets. I like it better
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone I can spend the occasional evening/night

me. I don't want to be solely responsible for anyone's sexual
By the way, If you have zero romantic interest in me at all but
want to go climbing, I would likely be up for that.
Thanks for reading!
