Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have followed the road to ruin far beyond the last exit. The
brief intermissions on my endless journey seem like brief
intermissions on an endless journey.
Seriously, I live an unconventional life. I've been happily married
to the same woman for forty-nine years. We have two grown children
of whom we're proud. We've never owned a television, so we've
always talked to one another, and our children learned to read and
write unusually well. We were into swinging for four years, over
thirty years ago, and had to quit because of the cumulative damage
done by the sexually transmitted diseases we picked up. I'm a trust
junkie and I like women, so I turned to bondage: I enjoy tying and
teasing women. I'm not sexually needy so I usually go to the
extreme of keeping my clothes on, which makes for a better tease.
Probably a little more embarrassing than you can stand, but I'll
cuddle you afterward. I can be really comforting too.
Obviously I can't relate to every woman in that way, not even every
woman who wants to relate to me in that way. Since I do like women,
I'm also happy to be a friend. I'm a good listener. I'm
understanding. I'm weed-friendly, though as an activist for
legalization I can't keep a stash of my own. I'm violently allergic
to cats and irrationally hostile to tobacco. Dogs love me, though
I'm told that dogs love everybody, and there's been one or two that
I'm partly retired, partly a homemaker, and partly a professional
gambler. Back when we were still raising our kids, I worked in the
computer software industry. Curious bit of history, that! It no
longer seems to have any meaning.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.
After enlightenmnet, chop wood, carry water.
Besides chopping wood and carrying water, I do autistic support on
the Internet, play a bit of poker, wander the wilderness, and hang
with friends. Some of those friends are tied down, on their bed or
mine, but most aren't.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Thinking. Understanding.
I give very good attention.
