"Near me" does not include the other side of our home planet. Please be in Seattle or near by. If you think you should be an exception, tell me why up front. Same with lack of pictures. Otherwise I'll have to assume you haven't read my profile, and I'll be rather disinclined to answer.
I already get enough variations of "hi!" Instead tell me something real. Tell me how you see the world. Tell me what you think we might have in common.
I prioritize the physical. That means dance, touch, romance, erotics. I love my friends, and there is room in my life for more, but I am seeking those who like me are looking for physical connections. (This does not mean you should send me pictures of your sexual organs. Please don't.)
I'm selective in my companions, but how you see the world is more important to me than what you know. I look for the willingness to put oneself in the moment-- to fall, fail, fumble, and stand again.
I prefer those who have found some measure of calm after coming through lightning and hailstones, those who said "yes" to life often enough to have scars. I find that few are as gentle as those who have fought too hard, or as quiet as those who have already said too much. I don't mind arrogance if it's accompanied by intelligence and insight, provided neither of us takes ourselves too seriously.
Physicality matters to me. I'm physically active and in very good shape. I want my intimate companions to be as well.
My goal is to have ownership of the house of self-- loose nails, uneven floors, peeling walls, and all. Some days the front door key doesn't work right. I keep on with the work. I make mistakes. That's okay.
I'm sincere but not always serious, dry-witted yet silly, passionate but cautious, kind yet dangerous, beautiful but geeky, brilliant and sometimes modest. I expect patterns to reveal themselves to both reason and intuition, even when they don't. I try to avoid thinking dishonest thoughts.
I am contemplative, provocative, and non-traditional.
I am not your fantasy of me, but I am okay that you have one. I am changeable, I am contradictory.
I am not for the faint of heart.
