Stolen from Rob Brezsny....
"I'M THUNDER IN THE EARTH AND YOU'RE RIVER IN THE HEAVENS
Fire-breathing earth-worshiper with the warrior genius of a geisha and the intimacy skills of a samurai seeks an undomesticatable creature of the night with a talent for walking on water. I want a lover, yes, and a blood ally, but I also want a partner in crimes that don't break any laws ... a joy scientist who's in training to be an ethical outlaw ... a dissident bodhisattva with the messianic ambition to overthrow reality. What's so bad about obsession, anyway? You look fabulous when you're pushing it to the limit, and so do I. My turn-ons: taboo explorations on the frontiers of enlightened compassion, and peak performances at the border of wildness and discipline. Turn-offs: easy tests that merely flatter my ego and familiar games that put my higher mind to sleep. Resolved: My inner guru wants to get into the funnest possible trouble with your inner shaman."

I am looking for a woman that shares many of my passions – has many of her own and is very confident. And sexy - in her own way. You would nourish my brilliance and excuse my eccentricities. I would nourish and feed your body and soul.

I have had very unique and unusual life experiences. Have traveled around the world picking up many different skills and loves. I am constantly challenging myself and learning new things. I have a strong desire to get to the bottom of things. To really find out what they are about. You won’t meet anyone like me –For better or worse- (insert chuckles here).

I have a great sense of humor. Try not to look or act my age. Can be very serious and very silly. Sometimes at the same time.

I tend to try to turn bad experiences into good ones. Or at least learning experiences. Parts of my life have been very hard, but I would not trade them for anything. They have made me who I am and given me my unique vision of the world. I would not trade it for ANYTHING and am very proud of it. I tend to think if you are unhappy with your life – you are the only one to blame. I am not perfect, nor do I pretend to be. I think it would be boring, actually.

I am very protective of my friends and family. The sense of “home” is very important to me. I have a very acute sense of detail. Sometimes I am too hard on myself. I take what ever I do seriously. And try not to take myself too seriously.

I am Loyal, Funny, and a thinker
