I value kindness, being open to experience, creativity, intelligence, cleverness, wisdom, and a sense of humor. I dislike basketball, boring music, "just going to bed" on Friday nights, and running all over town doing errands. I'm in good shape, and I try to take good care of my body, but I'm not crazy about it. I'm fairly mellow, but I've also been told that I wear my heart on my sleeve.
For a first date, I like to go out for drinks/tea and conversation. I'm open to ideas, and if something sounds cool to me, I'm there.
In the interest of full disclosure, I'm in a polyamorous relationship with a friend of mine who has a significant other. I currently do not have a primary relationship of my own, and we have discussed the possibility of me finding a long-term girlfriend. She's really beautiful and totally awesome! Perhaps you would like her too! Maybe you would even like her husband. But I guess that's not all necessary or mandatory - just something to be aware of. I can see how such a scenario might be intimidating - but the rewards may also be great? Time will tell. If you have questions, feel free to ask away.
All of that said, I have decided that I'm looking for love - not just sex. I'm romantic and I have deep connections with people. Being 30 and all, I'm thinking long term about this whole thing. I'm looking for someone that is creative, open to variety, and emotionally available. I have some scars from past relationships like everyone else, but I'm past the point of wanting to be with someone that's not available to me anymore. I hope you're the same.
