I teach philosophy at a local university. Besides this career passion, I enjoy writing, meeting new people, coffee shops and bars, working out, walking at the beach or a park, opera/classical, fiction and biographies, and personal development.
I'm looking to meet new people, for dating or friendship. I don't have many gay male friends who live locally and am definitely interesting in making some. For dating, I’m attracted to men who are caring and physically affectionate.
I mostly agree with the following quote from, surprisingly, a medical textbook, and I try to live up to it most of the time in my interactions with everyone. I'm looking for someone who feels warm to this quote as well...
"I want to be present with you exactly as you are. I am not asking you to change in any way. While I may have preferences about how I might want you to be, I am committed to letting go of those preferences in favor of letting you be exactly the way you are. You may change from one moment to the next, and I am committed to being fully present with you on a moment-to-moment basis and to feel and accept however much you change. No matter what happens in this moment, I am determined to let you be as you are with an open and sincere heart."
I hope to hear from you. :)
