I'm a duck.
Well, no, not really. But it got your attention, didn't it? ;-)
I'm in love with the creative writing process and I'm still hoping someday I can make it into wide print. I'm in love with music, and with life. A life without romantic love is meaningless to me; I need to love and to be loved because love is like oxygen to me.
My moral standards are quite high. I am not religious at all, but there are moral and ethical rules, and they are not at all difficult to figure out. All of my moral standards equate to: don't START using force on another person; love your life and defend it and your greatest values; love others whose lives embody your own ideals; embrace your life and live it to the fullest.
I'm pretty easy to get along with, I'm laid back about most everything that falls into the category of day-to-day life. There are issues, though - what I used to call "hot-button issues" - that drag the passionate demon out of my heart so fast it can make you pass out. One of these issues would be pretty obvious: mistreating people because of their sexual orientation. This also applies to all forms of bigotry and zealotry - where the mind is turned off while the mouth is left running.
I won't lower my moral standards for anyone. I'm very proud of what I think and how I feel, but I'm not close-minded either. I love to have long discussions on sensitive topics, but only if we agree to disagree and be civil at all times.
I'm something of a generalist. My major background is in computers, but I have learned a little about a whole lot of things. I love fiction, music, art, movies, TV. From my perspective, Science is the driving force behind civilization, but art is what makes it all worthwhile.
Loves: music, sweets, sweet people, passionate lovemaking, empathy, compassion, loyalty, honor, strength, fidelity
Hates: bigotry, zealotry, outright rejection of reality, religion
I'm usually a very open person who says entirely too much and has no idea how not to be excessively honest. I'm generally eager for people to know who I am and what I'm all about, and if I meet you I'll want to learn all about you, too. Some dating and foreplay and I'm happy. No dating, no foreplay = no sex. And I have to like you, too, because I don't just get down with anyone.
I hate drama. I believe in sitting down and talking things through. That being said, sometimes I'm too stubborn to see what's right in front of me, but a loving partner changes all of that.
I don't multitask well, but whatever I do gets my complete and undivided attention. Sometimes that's hard for others to deal with because I can be very, very difficult to break off a focused train of thought. However, what I call a 'single track' of thought can be bewildering to others. My thinking follows lines that most people don't pursue, and as a result it may seem like I'm topic hopping when, in reality, the topics are all connected by a single thread.
I can look at things from a science/engineering standpoint and then baffle others by connecting it to artistic expression. I can get deep into precise details about something, or ignore details altogether and just go with it.
What makes me happiest in life is to see another person smile, laugh, and love. If I love you and you love me we will be an item until =you= decide it's time to go. I'm fiercely loyal to those who have my heart.
I haven't yet been in a loving relationship with a male but it's something I want to experience very, very badly.
