I seek many relationships with many people. I said to a friend of mine recently that my life is one of total openness. I'm happy to be friends and talk about nothing for hours, I'm happy to go to bed together and I'm happy to be lifelong partners. I try to look at any relationship someone wants to have with me as a gift. And it's rude to look at a gift and then ask the giver for more.
I have two of the most wonderful partners anyone could ever ask for. My life is one of constant love and happiness. I now have a greater understanding of the term "family" than those to whom I was born ever gave me.
Now on to the more common fare:
I think of myself as a radical truth-teller. I don't much like censoring myself. Not to say that I try to hurt people or say unpleasant things. But the thing that everyone's thinking and nobody's saying? I'm the guy who says it.
I'm an atheist. Maybe an anti-theist. If you're an atheist, that's great. But please don't think I'm intolerant. Everybody's got their own song to dance to.
I have a daughter from my first marriage who is the the Ninja Robot of my Destiny.
I have all the interests one would ascribe to a geek. Maybe it would have been quicker to describe myself as a geek. Whatever. I like roleplaying games, video games, comics, movies, all of it.
I've done online dating before, and honestly I don't like it much. It seems to be a way to add a layer of separation between people. I'm quick to meet and quicker to exchange phone numbers. I'm a big boy. I don't think I'll get into any trouble.
This is not to say that I'm here for anonymous hookups, or indeed hookups of any variety. But you can only learn so much from a person's writing. After a certain point you can't decide to go forward without meeting.
I work pretty hard at examining my preconceptions and taking a closer look at the things I think and the opinions I hold. When something bothers me, I ask myself why. When I disagree with someone, I look for the roots of our differences. Once I feel like I have a handle on that, I decide whether to keep it around.
I'm always trying to improve myself, whether physically, mentally or emotionally. I let my loved ones be the judge of whether I'm being successful in this venture. To me, the effort is the important part.
