Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am happy; genuinely seriously happy. I love life, and I enjoy
time I get to spend with people who are in inquiry about themselves
and the world around them. It's not like I don't notice bad stuff
happening to me or around me, it's just on a vast scale of
negativity in the world my problems don't even register as
important. I've been dead once so it changes your perspective on
I am in an open relationship and my son was born August 2012, so if
you cannot hang with that, or do not deal well with jealousy, or
have issues with attachment or ownership, or are generally confused
by what I am talking about, then we would be problematic.
Translation: no drama, just fun intelligent conversation with the
possibility of sex and connection.
I'm looking for fun intelligent women with panache and a sense of
adventure who want to take the occasional trip up the coast for a
picnic, or to Harbin, or Esalen, or just a fun night exploring each
If you have a solid grounded sense of who you are, or if you
practice Yoga regularly, or meditate, you'll understand this next
part. This is about potentially exploring each other deeply, in the
"now" without complications.
Don't be what you think others want you to be. Be who YOU are. You
are an absolutely amazing person. You just have to connect with
that part of you that believes it. There is someone amazing for
you, it may just not be me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in advertising and marketing, write for several
publications, run the Science of Friendship project at
scienceoffriendship.com and also started a sexuality and intimacy
blog. I love and attack life, but can still laugh at it... and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making words. Pushing buttons to see what happens, and Orgasmic
Meditation. (Uh yeah, that last one probably needs some

I am WAY better looking in person. Like if Matt Damon had sex with
Val Kilmer and they had a baby, which would be impossible I know...
but just visualize it.... Wait! No! don't visualize Val giving
birth... Dammit, now they're totally freaked out, fuck.
Ug, ok, so I just kinda look like my pictures, oh well.

My sense of wonder
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether compassion means action, or inaction. As I move passed much
of my ego (still a long way to go I think) I notice that the world
around me tends to fade into something where external wants and
needs become distant. As such, people around me blur into almost
intelligible talk boxes.
The occasional bright light pierces it with someone who is paying
attention and conscious. These moments are fleeting, I can just
catch a glimpse of them, but there is this pull to go there; to
find them. I search a lot, but when I consciously search those
moments happen less, as if by searching I am squeezing them too
There is this desire I have to "figure it out." My mind wants to
"solve it"" and be able to access it at will. But the moment those
thoughts pop into my head I am squeezing something into a box, and
inside that box the light goes out.
I spend a lot of time thinking that if I could only stop thinking I
could live in this moment, in this now time, and that would be

I am hesitant here. Since I often lack a filter or ability to
determine how much to reveal, I can often cross into that boundary
that would be uncomfortable for most people. Although there is an
ego part of me that wants to poke at that, make you uncomfortable,
that is only serving a part of me that wants to deflect or evade
true intimacy. If you are willing to listen, truly listen, then I
am willing to be intimate. For intimacy is not a one way action, it
is a two way connection. So connect with me and learn to see
