A pot smoking/cuddle buddy. This may or may not be sexual. Get high, eat a meal, watch a movie and cuddle.
A great love is rare. I am open to the possibility. Mostly, though, I want friends first and to build from there.
I am polyamorous/swing/kink.
I have a girlfriend. I am the secondary partner. We have 1-2 date a week.
I am happy if you have partners, as well!
My name is Mark.
I am a warm, smart guy. I compromise, share, and believe in helping others. I am silly and dorky and sometimes smart guy. I am not the tough guy.
-History, science, nearly all space sci-fi geek stuff.
-Psychology and theories of social construction.
-Photography, this is my photography work:
-Dogs! --I have a 17 year old cat--
-weed about 2/week
-Being by water
-Going to movies.
-Crazy conversations made of laughter, fantasy and "What if" games
-Baseball is my religion. The games are my church; it renews my spirit and gives me strength and hope in my life. I share this hobby with my mother. It allows us a good excuse to spend time together.
I have earned my emotional scars. I have been half insane with rejection, hurt, celibacy, and grief and lived to love again. Though I paid dearly for those lessons in my life, I understand love, jealousy, commitment, and relationships on a much greater level than I ever did before.
I really prefer meeting in person. We can get a better feel for each other after a few minutes in person then several hours of texting.
Deal-breakers: Drama Llama Hunters! (Drama happens in our world. But I have little patience for people that seek out drama.) Overly critical people. Republicans. People who are rude to waitstaff. Smokers (no no NO!). I am not interested in booze anymore. A drink with dinner, a few times a year is all I care to intake. People with control, manipulation, and jealousy issues. Yo no hablo Inglés!
Possible Deal-Breakers for you:
1) I have HSV-1, cold sores. I take medication. It has been 3 years since my last outbreak.
August 2015, I had warts (now removed) most likely from HPV. Some strains can leave the body. I will be tested every three months going forward.
Otherwise, my last STI test was negative, August 2015.
2) I lost about 10 of my 37 years to depression/anxiety. I am however, a person that tries to be positive, happy, objective and forward looking, though it is a daily struggle for me.
