_What_ I am is civilized, literate, widely traveled professional, a lawyer who left big firm life and academia (or vice versa; institutional life doesn't seem to suit me) for a solo practice aimed at people in underserved communities who need but cannot afford quality representation. Berra also said: "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." I have taken a lot of forks in the road.
I'm culturally Jewish, spiritually Buddhist, and idiosyncratically very left wing (and it matters); overeducatedl, but not a snob, at least about that. There are too many PhDs or JDs who operate under the delusion that having a lot of expensive wallpaper (I mainly keep mine in a closet) means one's smart. I like to think I'm a gentleman. The current tux profile isn't to make that point with a hammer. It's only a photo that just turned up that's cool. I'm sexually _extremely_ adventurous, kinky, and quite dominant in a low-key sort of way.
I'm not monogamous***, jealous or possessive.. I'm also not a player: absolute honesty and transparency is cricual. I'm in an open relationship with a wonderful women, but I think that love, like knowledge, is not diminished by nonexclusivity. (I tried to avoid that double negative, but I think that's what I mean to say.). Time is limited, but if we are right for each other, we will make time. I strive to pay attention to whoever I'm with. If you call it to my attention that I'm not, I'll thank you and see if I can do better.
I'm looking for friends as well as partners: if you're smart, fast, funny, slightly twisted, and we share interests, we can just enjoy each other's company or see if more develops.
