While I'm currently polyamorous and dating casually, I consider myself single, I'm open to both polyamory and monogamy, and I have experience with both. I am strictly and completely honest about who I am seeing, my sexual status with them, my current STI test results including when, and so forth (because safety is sexy) - I expect anyone I see to be the same.
I'm looking for female (cis or otherwise) partner(s?) (ideally into my kinks, though that's not mandatory). I'm open to a lot of possible types of relationships (monogamous, new poly primary, new poly secondary, friends with benefits, play partners, ...). My only stipulation is that I won't immediately be monogamous - we'd have to explicitly discuss it after seeing each other for a while. That said, I'm absolutely open to the possibility. A one-night stand does NOT interest me. Ultimately, I want a wife, kids, and a life together, someone to cherish and be cherished by, but that doesn't preclude other relationships before nor during assuming that's what my [future] wife and I agree on. (Clear as mud? Good. Not so much? Ask away. I respond very willingly to very personal questions. Really, ask me anything. ANYTHING. Shame is useless, remember? :)
I got very amicably divorced mid-2015. I met her through okcupid and have no regrets - I would honestly relive our lives together unchanged from beginning to end. Needless to say, it made me a believer in OKC. However, that chapter of my life is definitely over. I'm ready to love again.
I have a passion for trying new things with whomever I happen to be hanging out with, as long as they do the suggesting. Doing more exploring is on my ToDo list - just tell me where and when. "I'm game." While we're at it, I often say, "I'm a gamer". Board, Tabletop, PC, Console, etc. My biggest creative outlets are being a GM and writing software, and if you think either one doesn't require plenty of creativity, we should chat so I can disillusion you of that notion.
I don't like coffee but like the atmosphere of coffee shops - you'll find me drinking hot chocolate. I prefer listening to talking unless I get going on one of my many passions. I hate large parties and love small groups / 1:1. Give me a political or philosophical or scientifical (which I'm now insisting is a word to maintain the rhyme) discussion with "coffee" (see above) and with friends over too much alcohol and strangers any day. (Not that I don't enjoy the occasional drink.)
I tend to avoid paying attention to the news because it's too depressing. That's assuming you don't count Daily Show and Colbert Report when I remember to stream them, of course, but even that is rare - too many other things to do.
I'm inquisitive. Expect me to ask questions. Sometimes I get lost for hours on Wikipedia or TVTropes and consider neither one a waste of time. I like to reread my physics textbooks from time to time. Museums about almost anything are awesome.
I volunteer at PAX. I play frisbee golf and bocce. I hate bigotry. I love Tim Minchin.
