I'm a successful and established creative professional, well educated (went to college two years early when I was 16), well traveled, with lots of diverse interests, passions, and obsessions in life: from Madonna to medicine to Monet—from politics and economics to zombie movies—from skyscrapers and animal crackers to nuclear weapons, Impressionist art, and Indian food.
I'm 6'7" (yes, that's 6'7", not 6'1"), built like a tall, huge, strong, boyish, masculine, clean-cut, teddy bear (but NOT hairy like a teddy bear, LOL). I'm stable, sane (though eccentric and rife with harmless idiosyncrasies). VERY NICE guy, sweet, old-soul. Honest, honorable, principled, romantic at heart, fun, funny (well, at least I think so)
I'm playful, playfully aggressive (love to wrestle and roughhouse, have pillow fights, etc.), but also a very sweet and affectionate guy, too. A true and hopeful romantic at heart.
Thanks to a loving family I was raised with great values and morals, and so I essentially aspire to the same things most straight people do in life--romance, monogamy, marriage, family--be it pets, kids, or both LOL--I just happen to want all of that with someone of the same gender, WHEN the right guy comes along (i.e., don't worry, I'm not looking to propose on the first date). I've been in love before, and know that it's something that has to happen organically and over time through shared experiences (ergo, I don't believe in love at first sight. Lust at first sight, well, that's another matter, LOL).
I'm out, well-adjusted, and perfectly comfortable with who I am, but my sexuality doesn't define me.
Open to all possibilities, from friends (can never have too many of those) to romance...so long as it's honest and sincere.
Music: Jazz and Blues (Coltrane, Hartman, Davis, Washington, Holiday), Classical (Chopin, Mahler, Mendelssohn, et al), Club/Dance, Madonna, Cher, George Winston, most pop, light rock, etc.--pretty much everything but rap and country.
