I'm highly social, and have a great big community of wonderful friends and loved ones. I love nature, camping, and organizing gatherings in the woods. I play west African percussion, and just recently joined a band and have a fun and exciting new musical project. I'm enthusiastic about music, mostly blues, rock, jazz, funk, soul, and anything incorporating the like. I buy and listen to used, vintage vinyl records.
I'm not monogamous, I'm polyamorous (poly). It's meaning is different for everyone, so knowing me is important to understanding me, and the manner in which I manage my relationships. I believe in loving both platonic as well as romantically and emotionally. I tend towards long-term committed relationships, but I enjoy sharing intimacy with friends casually as well.
I've stopped dating online. I have an amazing life partner and wife I've been with since 2003. I also have an amazing girlfriend who has become a significant part of my life in 2012. I still desire greater intimacy with people in my life, but as I've always accomplished this more easily in real-life experiences, I've stopped looking for it online. (**UPDATE** That being said, I still seek companionship when I travel for work. I may be coming to a city near you! ;^)
