"Lucy came back to me and smiled. She looped her arm through mine and pulled me forward into the cold night wind. 'It's true,' she said, leaning her head on my shoulder. 'It's your blessing and your curse. You're always going to be fine.'" That's Ann Patchett in Truth and Beauty, and that's also the best summary I know of emo me.
Relationshipwise, I'm looking for what works. The models generally subscribed to, including "open relationship," all seem too complex and question-begging, but a good tweet-sized explanation is that Sex at Dawn confirmed a lifetime of biases for me.
I'm more-or-less a furry (I've found the indefinite article helps distinguish anthropomorphic fanboy type from hirsute), and therefore pretty tactile around people I'm comfortable with.

If you think the Prozzäk song "Be As" is one of the bestest things in the universe (go ahead, YouTube it, I'll wait), we'll get along great. =^.^=
Since this has come up a few times -- contrary to what the "I'm looking for" section of my profile says, I'm not just trying to hook up with cis men in a certain age range. I just calibrated that to represent me as closely as a not-Fetlife profile allows for database-match purposes. :) I'm on here because it seems to draw interesting people. I'm looking for fun friends and, gods willing, sexy dates of whatever gender(s)/orientation(s).
