Had a total hip replacement on August 4th and still in a bit of recuperation mode. Friends have been fantastic and I am healing in a timely, albeit slow, fashion.
I'm finding my social calendar filling up even though I'm taking a break from the whole dating scene - though I'm socializing heavily with people I've met through this site. I'm making some truly good friends here, believe it or not!
If you enjoy cuddling, watching movies, playing RPGs, reading, creating, cooking veggie foods, and keeping the melodrama in your life limited to books you read or movies you watch, we might make a good match. Those things make me quite happy.
I live with my Miniature Dachshund (Femme Pois) and Pembroke Welsh Corgi (Zweite 'Ein'), a roommate I met through this site (it's strictly platonic) and his three cats.
I've an aquarium that I enjoy watching. A plec named Feo has taken it over. He's over two-thirds the height of the tank.
I don't tend to exaggerate. Life remains bizarre enough I've no need to.
I know no relationship can complete me. I'm at a point where I'm dating again and ready to allow a person close to me. Maybe even close enough to give full trust. But I believe my friends should _and do_ take precedence in my life.
I used to be poly and I know the rules and play by them fairly, yet I'm not up for a relationship with somebody who already has a primary. I _might_ date somebody who is poly and has the desire to have me as their primary.
Currently I'm desiring a relationship that has at its center the foundations of peace, patience, quiet, and calm affection. A lot certainly stems from the fact my life has no place for high maintenance types or drama queens (male or female).
I love to do photography, to write song lyrics and semi-autobiographical stories, do hardcore journaling, bake, and design anything from photo shoot series to web applications. You can easily find something you want to read in my large and diverse book collection; it spans centuries and diverse fictions and serious philosophy or autobiographies or even my Terry Pratchett's Discworld collection or my Agatha Christie collection (which includes her two autobiographies or my favorite, her collection "The Mysterious Mr. Quin").
I think transguys and transgirls are sexy. Partially due to the strength of character necessary for going through their change to what they feel is their proper gender.
Perfect dates: Staying in: Watching Netflix/Amazon Prime/YouTube/DVDs, walking my dogs, and cuddling whilst reading to one another and drinking tea or whiskey straight with a soda chaser and maybe eating homemade veggie food. Going out: Let's have Ethiopian or Thai, and hit DNA Lounge or Cat Club after Wicked Grounds, then return to walk my dogs. They are my children, after all, so they're part of the package.
I am honest, unique, and normal.
