If you are looking for a stereotypical, sex-driven macho man to be your knight in shining armor, please move on, I'm not your type, and you're not mine. Anyone I am romantic with needs to be understanding of the effects of sexual abuse, and that sometimes means that for the time being I just need to be held. Also know that if you have suffered trauma, you are with someone that will understand your needs.
I am capable of sex and while I do enjoy the closeness, it is something I could take or leave. A permanently abstinent or asexual relationship would be a perfectly acceptable (while not mandatory) thing to me. I look at sex the way I look eating a perfectly cooked steak. It's a wonderful thing to experience once in a while, but I don't spend my days thinking about how badly I want to eat steak. People are not pieces of meat, they are human beings. I value the time spent holding hands, cuddling, and kissing, the affection that makes us truly feel loved inside, these are the things that matter, and are the only things I expect from a partner.
I think those are the real important things to flesh out here since this is, after all, a quest to find that special quirky someone out there that likes me for me and maybe shares a common interest or two.
So, other stuff...
As you can probably tell from my pictures I'm a musician, I've been at it since I was 6 and play piano, bass, guitar, drums, and sing. I also have done a lot of community theater acting. I work as an electronic technician and moonlight as a digital systems designer for a startup company that manufactures electronic musical equipment.
So that's me in a nutshell. Want to know more, just ask :)
