I currently live alone, though I'm not married to it (divorcée joke, deal). I'm kinkier than many. I'm also currently practicing poly and happy to talk about it, but it's not my only source of conversation.
I'm a voracious reader and love talking about books and pop culture. I have a dry sardonic wit that keeps my dance partners laughing (ballroom).
I aspire to creativity, and art and found a way to make a life with it. I love long serious conversations over dinner, wine and coffee where we find the answers to life the universe and everything together, partnership is important.
I'm looking for a magic connection. Physical, emotional, intellectual.
I travel a lot for work and pleasure, this year San Fransico, Australia, Japan, Munich,more Bay Area, etc. Kayaking is critical to my sanity and there are few places I feel more at home than in my boat along the shore of a random island, maybe on skis on a double black (ok, not really comfortable) or a thousand feet below the surface in cave. Keep up or I'm not interested. My love is caving: with the connection to the earth, the physical effort and the risk, it's the most visceral think I ever do.
I'm active, but I'm more of a Teddy Bear: I've been told it makes cuddling comfortable.
I enjoy tactile experiences, interactions and connections.
I have many great friends, and I balance a rewarding and challenging career in software design (you use my stuff) with all the fun. Usually the balance is off a little.
I've lived in the city now for a couple of years, after 15 years in Snohomish, it felt like home on the first day and I think to myself what took so long...
The most important thing that I learn every day is who I am. I'm a rebel looking for a cause and I want to trade my day job for something exciting and meaningful to me.
Talking to a large (300+) room full of people is something I'm good at and enjoy.
With caving I learned to be good with knots and rope. Turns out it's a transferable skill.
When it comes to live performances, I love theater of all kinds, but I'm particularly fond of musical theater, and my personal favorite is Pippin.
Music: Eclectic in the extreme. I'm really partial to these song right now
I love jogging to this one
As for the Star Wars, Star Trek question: Dr. Who, but then Star Wars. I prefer to be outside, but sometimes curling up with a movie or a show is just what the doctor, ahem, ordered.
Coffee/Wine, I refuse to pick my vice ...
Books, is literature a thing? If reading isn't your thing. Most likely I not your fit.
My Kayaking in the summer and my skis in the winter. They takes me where I want to go.
My Camera, it shows me what I need to see
Sex, I'm a guy and I said it. Doesn't mean I'm sending you a dicpic 5 seconds after contact. Just means I'm done living as if it doesn't matter to me.
When I'm not working, art. It's an exploratory process as I try to find an expression of Art that is meaningful to me. Lately lost PLA casting and Toulouse-Lautrec.
How people interpret the world through their tools.
I've played board games with friends, and hung out at a dive bar. Gone to a concert ... Throwing a barn burner of a party, or catching a play.
I speak honestly, but it seems I don't always know the truth.
I've heard that everything is suffering. But I've found, Suffering is just an inevitable outcome of Shakespeare.
2. You are awesome. No other reason necessary.
Friends need apply...
You're looking for someone to get out and have a good time with traipsing around Seattle, or skiing and hiking in the mountains. Perhaps you think winter Kayak camping in the San Juan Islands sounds awesome, curled up in a double sleeping bag hiding from the rain.
You want to know more about knots, or not.
