You approach the door and give it a quick, concise knock, not quite sure what to expect. You hear the shuffling of feet inside, and the door opens a crack. A keen eye stares back at you.
"Yes, May I help you?"
You're not quite sure what to say at first, but the words come stammering to your lips before you really have a chance to think it over.
"Hi, um, I'm sorry I'm very lost here and-"
"Good grief look at you! You look like your nose is about to fall off from that cold, quick quick come in."
The door swings wide open to reveal a plump old asian woman in a cooking apron. You're taken aback but she ushers you in and sits you down near the fire, with a warm blanket around your shoulders. She disappears in a bustle and comes back with a warm cup of coffee.
"Here dear, you drink and get yourself warmer."
She leaves again (presumably to get more things from the
kitchen). Whoever this woman is she's
being incredibly welcoming. Your bones begin to
warm up by the fire, and you put your feet up. Whatever snow that
was caked into your pant leggings begins to melt and dry out.
It's a few moments before you realize that you haven't even
had a sip of this coffee yet.
You bring the warm liquid to your lips and it spreads across your tongue. Whatever warmth it brings is slightly spoiled by a bitter aftertaste. You try to hide your obvious disgust when the plump woman walks back in with a tray of crackers.
"Are you feeling any better dear? I know you lost, but part of me wonders how you even got this far up the mountain. Oh and how is your coffee, do you need some cream or sugar?"
(Lie) "No, no, the coffee is fine, thank you."
"Actually I would love some sugar"
Explain that the coffee tastes horrid.

You head towards the hillside houses. For some reason
though, you feel anxious about meeting strangers in the middle of
the night. As you approach, you see that one of the houses is
clearly abandoned with boarded up windows and lights shut off.
Fear gets the better of you, and you decide that it's much
safer to wait out the night in the abandoned house, rather than try
to see who lives next door.
You easily crack open the back door and cautiously enter. It's not terribly warm inside, but at least there's no wind. Outside the snow howls and blows against the house, threatening to slip through the cracks in its woodwork. You check all the light switches and miraculously, one dimly lit bulb upstairs has some life left in it. Its soft glow illuminates what looks like the remnants of storage attic. There are old rusty tools and cans lying everywhere, but in the corner of the shed you spy a soft pile of sheets. You could easily wait out the night here, wait until the clouds clear, and see where to head down the mountain in the morning. But then again...as you glance out cracks in the boarded-up window you see the warm glow of the house next door, smoke rising from the fireplace. Is it worth it to say hello?
Yes, see if the there's any help to be found next door
No, spend the night here and find your way in the morning.

Your feet make deep imprints in the snow as you trudge uphill.
Eventually the air grows thin and the forest around you
begins to clear. It gets cloudy, but you press on. At
last you emerge above the cloud layer and can see quite plainly
that you're near the top of a very large mountain. Moonlight
illuminates clouds as they roll by, and it's not long before you
spy what looks like few houses not more than a mile away.
It's risky, you don't know who could live there, but this
mountain climb has made you extremely hungry and tired, these
people might have food.
Head for the houses, hopefully whoever is home will be nice!
Think better of it, and head downhill towards what looks like city lights.

Lately I've been craving some insightful discourse, the kind that emerges out of the intense chemistry between two highly compatible people. It need not be grandiose or marred by verbosity; there is a certain elegance to simple language. But it's been a while since I could sift through the kind words of a letter, one that goes beyond the unimaginative beginnings of simply asking me "what's up" or commenting on aesthetic manifestations. Small talk is uninteresting, and perhaps you've come to the same conclusion. Be bold. If you find here that we share a mutual passion in this world, I'd love to hear your side of it.

Attraction is a funny thing isn't it? It always amazes me that in the face of all irrationality, sometimes you can feel the spark between yourself and a complete stranger. I think some of what we feel is instinctive, but so much of love seems scripted and ceremonious these days. It's like we're told what to expect and how to go about it, even to the point where it will make us unhappy. Seriously, who wrote these rules? I need to complain to life's manager...
Whatever path led you here, rest assured you don't have to play ritualistic dating games to interest me. I'm not necessarily looking for a comedian to make me laugh or a missing piece to make me whole. Sure there's compatibility to consider, but I have no laundry list of absolute requirements or deal-breakers. Real relationships go a bit deeper than just understanding what another person can give you. Truthfully, I am interested in finding my cognitive twins: just guys and gals who think along the same lines and already get what they want out of life.
Read on if you like but a quick apology, people tell me this could be one of the longest and most open profiles ever found on okcupid. There are no mysteries with me. You seriously don't have to read it all. I designed it so that anyone could skim over the uninteresting bits and find things that were actually important to them.

Honestly I've met some of the coolest people on here, yet I find there really isn't a "type" of person I go for. Sometimes people can just click well. I have no absolute requirements or deal breakers, attraction happens. If you think we'd be a good mix after reading most of what I've put out here, you're probably right.
Really though, if anything about me perks your interest lemme know. Don't be afraid of rejection or anything, you could miss out on a lot of good times in life thinking like that. And if you can't think of what to say, winks are cool too ;-)

I won't lie, when someone writes to me the length of their first message is often directly proportional to how attractive I think they are. If you can't think of what to say, here are some nifty icebreakers that I thought of on the spot. You're far more complex and interesting than you possibly realize you know?
•While growing up, who or what do you think played biggest influence on who you turned out to be?
•Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 50 years?
•If you could change anything physical about yourself, what would it be?
•What was your best relationship so far like? Why did it end?
•What do you think your biggest flaws are?
•If you could be the instant master of one particular skill, which would you choose?
•What are your biggest pet peeves?
•When you start a new relationship, what do you hope to get out of it?
•What are you truly afraid of?
•What attributes in other people do you find sexy?
•Wouldn't it be more interesting if they actually told you how the person died in the obituaries?
•What are your opinions on monogamy?
•Do you think the graffiti works of street artists like Banksy equate to vandalism?
•What was your favorite grade in school? Which was the worst?
•Do you spend most of your time reflecting on the past, living in the present, or dreaming of the future? And what do those thoughts contain?
•What do you think is the root force that drives all of your actions?

I absolutely obliterated the meaning of this section. Leave it to the extremely open guy to write a novel of a profile and put it all out there. I've answered every single match question both publicly and truthfully. All 5,000+ of them. I like the fact that OKC requires other people to make their answers public in order to see mine. I think going quid pro quo in the honesty department is a cool idea, and by now you've probably figured out that I have very little tolerance for liars, heck I bet you hate deception as well. So this entire profile has become sort of an honesty box, but despite putting everything out there I'll still save this section to really level with you.
-The "P" Word-
It still feels kind of strange to openly admit that I'm polyamorous, but in many ways I have okc to credit for helping me realize that this particular dating style is not so uncommon. Haha and for the record, no I don't want a harem and it doesn't work like that. Unfortunately there's quite a bit of confusion surrounding that term and the expectations that come with it. Before you judge me on that basis (and you definitely can), I really hope you check out my thoughts on the subject, or at least explore it for yourself.
Also, I'm not a perfect person! I'll be as ready as anyone to admit my faults and call a spade a spade. Any kind of relationship takes work, and the sooner that everything is out and open the better. Everyone is different in what they want, but I'd expect you to let me know if anything about me bothers you, I'd do the same.
I don't expect to be a perfect match with anybody, sometimes its our disagreements that make us more interesting people. But if you scan through my answers and find that you generally like what I've put down, I think there's a good chance we'll get along.
-The Kind of Guy Your mother Probably Warned you About-
OKcupid scored my dating persona as "The Playboy" and if you read the description, I think there's a bit of truth there. That being said, unlike many guys out there I don't have a simple one track mind. I have an affinity for multi-layered people with a penchant for extroversion and honesty. I consider myself a very open and loving person, but I'm also choosy about the people I surround myself with in life. If I feel that that we probably won't get along or as the robot says: "ya'll got issues" I'll tell you right away rather than cause heartbreak. Indeed, its a rare kind of person that can understand what I'm after. In the briefest explanation, the kind of relationships I seek are less than conventional. Concepts like loyalty and trust still matter to me, jealousy and insecurity?...not so much.
-Last but not Least-
Lastly, Everything about this 6'3" guy is proportionally correct. I don't get why some guys feel the need to lie about their height, or other things...lol, but enough of that nonsense.

Preparing and enjoying good food is one of my favorite parts of life. Coincidentally doing the dishes after consuming said food is one of my least favorite parts... but hey as long as the stuff isn't moving I'll give it a shot! Something tells me you might one day make me regret that maxim...but I always appreciate anyone who has an adventurous eating style as well.
I should also mention that it doesn't make a difference to me whether you're a vegetarian, vegan, omnivore, or paleo...under no circumstances am I ever going to force you to change your dietary habits. Well, unless you were a cannibal or something then I would probably just run away.
