My self-summary
πŸ’₯I now have availability as a primaryπŸ’₯

❀Polyamorous since 2002 I am not a newb❀

This is my latest YouTube crush. She is totally nerdy, with a hint of dork, but also a total badass.

I'm part nerd, part hippie dippie new ager, part hillbilly, with some punk added in. I can be super irreverent, hope that's okay. The personality section says I'm not polite at all. I would say I am informal and inappropriate, but I'm really not an asshole... really.

I have two relationships, one of which is long distance. I am oogly googly flat on my face in love with them.

It is absolutely mandatory that anyone that I am seeing meet my other partners and that I meet theirs. If you can't bring yourself to do this, I suggest avoiding polyamory altogether.

I do have a strong spiritual leaning, however I keep it to myself unless asked about it. Then I strain to use words to describe it.

There is this new term the kids are using a lot these days. GGG, I had to Google it. Yes, I'm that. However I draw the line at pain.

Once when I was a kid I snuck up on a feral cat while he was sleeping and started scratching him between the ears. The kitty was in utter bliss until he opened his eyes, then he ran away.

I can pet bees.

I am ENFP or INFP, the champion or the healer. I guess I can't make up my mind

Enneagram type 2, the helper.

My love language is touch.

When faced with a dilemma it is not unusual for me to analyse it from every conceivable angle, try to imagine every possible ramification, deem a certain course of action severely unwise, then do it anyway.
What I’m doing with my life
πŸ’˜ Finding more love than I ever thought any one person could ever have.

< rant >
After 9 years of insisting that I have a meaningful job where I help people for a living. I've finally had it with this self imposed poverty. It's sad how our society treats their elders, and how little society values the people who care for them.

So now I'm working for a livable income in a machine shop. It's actually kinda fun, and wow what's this? Health insurance? I never could get this when I was providing care.
< /rant >

I particularly enjoy hiking, camping, Yoga, and archery. Oooh! and hot springs it's been too long.

🌳 My sweeties got me a new pair of hiking boots for Christmas. I need to break these in!

πŸ”₯ I miss campfires that throw sparks up into the night sky and mingle with the stars. I used to thrive on this magick.

β›΅ Much of my life I live with the flow of things, like a ship at sea. You can't change the winds or the tides, but you can adjust your sails.

The first things people usually notice about me
People who meet me I person seen to often be surprised that I am actually like my profile presents me. I don't understand who would waste time creating a dishonest profile. The truth will come out so why bother pretending to be someone else.

Either that I am a human road flare of an extrovert or that I am so introverted that I am nearly invisible. Sometimes I can exert control over it and other times I totally lose it.

I look deeply into people, I try to see through their facades and find the good in everyone. It makes people uncomfortable sometimes but I am one of the least judgmental people you can meet. I remember first meeting someone who actually told me, "Hey, quit looking at my soul." πŸ‘€
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is always the longest part of a profile and also the part that no one really cares about so I'll keep this short.

🎢 Black Flag, Beats Antique, Johnny Cash

The six things I could never do without
Considering I once lived in a tent in a forest without much electricity as a caretaker, I realize that there is a lot I can do without. I would probably make an excellent monk if it were not for the celibacy involved. However life is more fun when you have a little more than the basic Maslow stuff.

🌟 Love, lots of it in many different guises.
🌟 Exciting plans or prospects.
🌟 A tranquil home to escape to.
🌟 Celebratory gunfire.
🌟 Really inappropriate humor.
🌟 Whimsy and general harmless mayhem.
🌟 Trees and other green growing things.
🌟 Cuddling.
🌟 Swype's new emoji
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I message someone here I actually take the time to read the entire profile. Of course I skip to the very bottom to make sure I'm not wasting my time. But if there are no deal breakers in the you should message me if section and I'm within the age parameters etc. I read the whole thing and look for things to write about to prove that I read it. I take a great deal of time and I am pretty choosy about who I do take this time for.

However after crafting a well thought out message, something happens. There are certain people out there, let's call them fuckwits. After my message hits the inbox of this seemingly amazing woman, all of a sudden several fuckwits bury it under a pile of hundreds of messages that say things like, "Hi", "Sup", or "Nice tits let's screw tonight".

I'm sure my message just gets deleted along with all the fuckwits. :-(

I tend to win women over when I cuddle them, however I'm also very conscious of boundaries and seldom get that close on the first date.

"Ugh I hate all the rubber neckers making the traffic even wor... Holy crap! Look! That SUV it's like totally upside down!"
On a typical Friday night I am
WooHoo! I'm finally off a 10 hour shift! Time to rock out with my 😴 Zzzzzzzz

Actually I have Fridays off, 10 hour shifts mean 4 day work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was once nearly killed in a wildfire being someplace no one should have been. I like to say I was there because my girlfriend's son was an idiot and I had to retrieve him. But the reality is that I probably would have been foolish enough to be there anyway. After all, it was pretty spectacular πŸ”₯😲 πŸ”₯
You should message me if
I prefer that you already have other partners who are also good at poly. However I will still consider the right polywog or newbie.

🌟 You are willing to take more than a couple hours to get to know me. I take a while to warm up, once I do you won't regret it.
🌟 You understand what is involved in ethical non-monogamy (poly for keyword searches)
🌟 You are interested in knowing more about me.
🌟 You have any questions about Polyamory
🌟 We keep running into each others profiles over and over.
