When I look at your face in a picture I will often see and feel in my minds eye what you might look and feel like in a passionate moment, with no masks, totally revealed, involuntary and electric.
I find that responsibility is a good antidote for an inflated ego.
I've had an interesting last couple years. Berkeley born, then Boulder for a year, Vegas and NYC for a year, back in SF for a while, now firmly planted in LA and ready for some warm weather.
I enjoy experimenting with life. I've gone into plenty of situations and afterwards said "wow, that bit me in the ass". Hasn't slowed me down much. A lot of things have turned out quite nicely after an initial gluteal nibble.
I wish to be, not buy my symbols. I would rather do the work to embody them and save my money. I don't want a Ferrari before I learn to literally be raw power, sophistication, sex appeal and finesse. Then I'll buy one.
I like women who notice the things that I don't notice and then point them out. This might be my biggest turn-on.
I have the viewpoint that we would all do well to advertise ourselves honestly on OKCupid. That way the right people can actually find us. I'm not going for broad appeal, I'm going for needle in a haystack. And I'd settle for a box of thumbtacks :-)
One of my favorite things about meeting somebody new is how we train each other to handle one another. I am interested in learning. I'm confident and I'm willing to be trained to handle you the way you want to be handled. It's like a game. Are you willing to help make me smart and ask for what you want?

And, of course, I find Nicole's 8 Reflections on Intimacy to work well as a guide...
