A life goal of mine is to have as many rich sensory experiences as possible -- I enjoy tasting food that is made with care; when I listen to music, I sit down and pay attention to it; I like to go on long hikes to see the view from the top of the mountain -- and let me tell you what I enjoy regarding touch after we've had a couple of dates :)
I love to travel. I am curious about our world and the people in it. I find myself often trading a bit of discomfort for unique experiences -- spend two weeks in the desert to build an art project? Let's go. I find it easy to say no to something well understood and safe, in favor of doing something new or going somewhere unexplored.
I've had this profile for a while, and I've had relationships with multiple people before -- but right now I want to focus on getting one long-ish term relationship right. I do have people in my life who are important to me and who will stay in my life, but none of them live on this continent. Ultimately, I'm looking for someone who is interested in co-creating a life together with me. I also acknowledge that this takes time to establish, and so in the short term, I am looking to have some fun along the way.
When this thing made me pick an orientation, I described myself as bisexual, but more accurately: I like people. Gender isn't the most important thing; it's just another attribute, like hair colour or stature. The substance of the person I'm attracted to, and the quality of our connection is what is important to me.
Ok, some more things about me:
I enjoy being active: biking, yoga, climbing.
I enjoy being artistic: photography, drawing.
I'm about 66% successful at trying to meditate every day this year so far.
I prefer connecting deeply with one or a few people rather than connecting shallowly with many people.
I value curiosity, self sufficiency, and the attitude of working to improve the world (as opposed to just getting by in it). I constantly challenge myself to improve and to live up to my own expectations.
I thrive on change -- I've just moved to Denmark from Canada -- but ultimately I want to find a little stability, maybe dynamic stability, with a partner in my life.
