My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New to Bloomington and thus far people are friendly but I have not had a real date. Would like to make some friends Gay or Bi and friends in general.
#1 I don't like stereotypical gay men...I hate the gay bars, The hook ups and especially the sexuall pomiscuity.But sometimes that is all I have and have to be cool with it. Don't get me wrong..youth is youth but if your past a certain age and not looking for love...then you probably would not like me. I am not into dirty talk..a turn off..want to seduce me...romance is your best way into my heart and into my bedroom..or yours. Not sappy Romance..just NORMAL dating!!! Easy does it...If I just wanted sex I would go to Craigs's have never slept with anyone older than me by more than a year or two. Never slept with a man with grey pubes. Seriously, I am looking for a man to spend life with..there is more to me than the fact I am GAY. I hope that if you write have a life outside or the perverse side of Gay life.I am a hybrid of sorts.I am 1/2 Native American and value my culture. My life has thus far been exciting and varied. I am a professional artist and have taught college. I have traveled 1/2 the world and experienceed some high culture and yet I am a nature lover who loves the outdoors and animals. I am not a snob but find that some snob me because of my life experiences. I am at ease with Royalty and the filthy rich and I am at ease with the people who life has kept down ..or they have chosen to be who they are..well you know what I mean. I have a good sense of have to living my life. My last job was unloading semi trucks so just because I have taught college doesn't mean I haven't worked some pretty non academic jobs. I once worked in a concert hall running lights and sound..and was engaged in the rock n roll industry..the music biz. I have also dabbled in Hollywood and have done some work there. I guess you can say that I have been an ready to settle down..find someone special and stop my gypsy ways. Because I am a professional artist I never seem to have comes and goes. One minute I am having an eligant art opening in NY City and the next I am unloading trucks. I could use someone more stable and less carefree than myself in my life. I have many interests and I love them to camp]..but[ [love to travel too and stay in hotels. I love film and I love the sound of water and nature. I love most music...well I will say I have a million stories and have met a lot of famous people...but people are get to totally know me may take some time..if you have the time. I am not a quick fix drive through romance. I admit I am a complicated idividual who is simple once you get to know me.
Well writing about yourself to atract the right man is always difficult isn't it?
I like tuxedos, I like motorcycle jackets, I like rock n roll clothes and I like blue Jeans and a straw cowboyhat.I love nature, I love ART, I love log cabins, I love France,I love cultural events I love poetry, I love tuedos,I love romance]],[ [I love love]],[ [I love men, I love animals I love new things...I don't fit into a mold. I am interested in meeting a straight acting man who doesn't lisp and can also be gentle...I know tall order eh? I would love to meet Mr. Right instead of Mr. Right Now. I want to share a life with someone.
a Favorite poem:

There was a boy
A very strange
Enchanted boy
They say he wandered
Very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he
And then one day
One magic day
He passed my way
While we spoke
Of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love and
Be loved in return or (to see my art..all lower case)

I am [romantic], [artistic], and [down to earth]
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Below you can find part of my professional life wich speaks alot about me...but as I have said I have many facets to me. I have also worked in social fields helping those less fortunate than myself.I am a very spiritual person I worked as a mental health professional and with the disabled. What I am doing with my life? Well experiencing as much as I can I guess while giving back...I come from a native american heritage on my fathers side and have spent time on reservations. I have lived in major cities and I have lived in the country. I have lived on several oceans, lakes and rivers, and I have lived in the desert and mountains. I am a bit of a "desperato" but have always kept my heart open to love. God I hate these write about yourself things..too much of me to display..just ask me eh?

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at making ART and FILM. I am really good at communication. I don't know aren't we all good at many things? I am a good cook. I am a good teacher, and a good student.Good in bed? well that depends on who I am with ;)
I am really good at speaking out against injustice and am good at being nieve sometimes too. Good at sticking my big foot in my mouth.
I am good at jet setting and I am good at being a homeboy.
I am good at camping and being in nature.
What I am not good at is writing these things lol
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes? My smile? My personality? honestly usually my looks because I am not average looking, maybe not good looking as I grow older gracefully but 1st people notice the physical, don't they?
I think people notice about me that I am different and somewhat able to see through people and UNDERSTAND.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: went to college 12 years so read alot of books.advid book reader from religion and spirituality to history and classical novels. Hard to say a favorite book or music or film unless you give me a genre. I love the book "the little prince" said to be a kids's philosophy is complete about human nature. I like the toa d'ching,books writen by the Dali Lama and about Tibet....anything about Native Americans and traditional I love too many books.
Music..I worked in the music industry and so I also worked in a record store for 7 years..taste wide and varied there...was a little hippy and rocker..was a clasical.. alittle of this and a little of that...some outsiders like Tom Waits..some country but mostly the old stuff like Johnny Cash new country is just pop to me..but I like some pop music too...not into rap that much or techno..don't like "gay Music" or whatever that is in the clubs.
Food:american, southern, home cooking..exotic asian , chinese, french, italian, a variety of food and try weird things when I travel abroad
Love love love pizza, and mexican food too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend alot of time thinking about settling down with the right man. I worry that a real man is not out there as I am not into stereotypical gay men..I think about 2012..the state of the world...our reason for being. Politics, economics, science, ancient phylosophies and predictions..spirituality..and of course the good ol gay standby: sex and think too much I think lol.
I think about how much I like people with a good self esteem but not a hug ego. Talking about yourself and not asking me about myself will gain you no points with me.I would rather spend my life alone than with the wrong man.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately or in world changes from day to day from month to month and from year to year and through the seasons. a typical Friday night will find me camping or outdoors in the summer..if it is not too hot. Winter..films and curling up on the couch with a book or film to watch.
used to be the life of the party and the night scene....still reevisit the past there..sometimes go to concerts or to hear a band.
but that is the single me..a typical friday night is a joint decition when I am in love.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hell, obvious, I am lonely..most of my friends are straight got married and moved onto noahs arc.....I fear that I won't find someone to spend my life with..that is something I will admit..I havemet alot of superficial jerks.
From time to time I suffer from depression and anxiety..but usally snap out of is too short
I miss my family that seemed to diapear after my mother died young of breast cancer.
Private..well I have been on top of the world and successful and down in the valley taking shit jobs..thats me love it or not
Like I said..I have Native American heritage..but I will admit..I like cowboys;). I am fully diverse to include the eastern and western world outside of My Native Americanness...But I am very much different in some things, ( the influence Native American culture and ancestory and rearing). I am different to some men. I have dated Native Men and they are much more..genuine.I have also dated men from a variety of countries and nationalities. I have also dated men from various parts of the country....coast to coast and North to South!
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 19–57
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you have a picture a profile...are cool and aren't into the steriotypical gay scene.!!!!!!!!I am not into hook ups...I hate dirty sex talk in a message or e-mail or on the phone. I like gentlemen and romace....the quickest way to seduce me is to romance me. I dated many gentleman,from all walks of life. Some were poor and non Professionals..some were educated..but what they shared was a gift of Romance..not dirty talk and sex...I said I am not into gay shit like that stereotypical shit..yes if your over should be past all that and be searching for a LTR...if your not please don't message me. If your nice and want to build a relationship.
