5/23: I've been noticing that people don't understand the "most private thing I'm willing to admit" question. I think you should be saying something that wouldn't ordinarily come up in conversation, but that you would be willing to admit publicly... so the "you'll have to get to know me" and similar answers are a waste of time and pretty silly.
11/21: update Not looking for a relationship right away. My life has taken a major turn and just want to connect with compatible women because I don't do the "male" things like sports and beer binges.
8/2: update: Lorelai Gilmore and Hunter S. Thompson are my new role models...
BTW, I've noticed that "no time for drama", "no baggage please", and similar phrases actually mean "Only I am allowed to have drama". Yeah, well, piss off then. EVERYONE has drama and baggage on this site... otherwise we would not be here. Get over it and we can all help each other carry our respective baggages... after all that is part of what love is., and I'm here for friendship and love, not sex nsa or fwb. I don't want you to carry my baggage, just help me up when it gets a little heavy, and I will do the same for you.
I am a sensual, creative, 'loyal to a fault' man. Comfortable in my masculinity, I can watch so-called chick-flicks and cry without fear; I can also watch boogah-he-man flicks and cheer at the explosions, blood, guts, and gore.
I love to cook, massage, paint, sculpt, write, and make love. What I am doing with my life right now is making sure I can do these. Preferably with cats around.
What am I looking for? OK, here's the 'shopping list':
-knows what persifilage means (and can correct the spelling of it)
-knows that bomb-throwers are not anarchists
-likes cats and bears
-loves to touch and be touched at random moments
-is omnivorous, or is okay with me being such
-is comfortable with my non-conformist spirituality
-knows the difference between astronomy and astrology, and between cosmogeny, cosmology, and cosmetology.
-is ok with getting oil paint, dirt, grease, etc. on herself. or the floor. or me.
I prefer long hair, but eh, that's just surface, ya know?
Also prefer a Mac user...it's just the way I roll.
Need not apply: NASCAR fans, post-1970 Country fans, fundamentalists/fanatics of any persuasion, Disco queens, pillow queens, Tea-partiers, Raven people (you know who you are).
And, yes, I'm divorced. No undue drama on my end of things.
I'm not looking for a 'sugar-momma', I'm not looking for FWB, or sex NSA... I'm looking for a partner who is walking their own path. I'm looking for someone who I can support emotionally, and who will support me emotionally. I'm looking for love plain and simple, unconditional and for who I am, not who I was or who you think I can be.
Cooking, creating, loving, burping a baby, massage, eating, laughing, listening, non-sequiturs.

my sense of humour (never again!)
2) how to capture that colour and luminosity
3) being thankful for the strong nuclear force
You don't refer to art as a hobby. That is THE deal breaker.
