I AM BISEXUAL
I AM POLY
I AM KINKY
Good, glad we got that out of the way and I'm sure that at least one of those things will put many of you off which is a great shame because I'm a nice person with some personality and also a pervert and who doesn't like those, eh? Still, if you can't see past them things, it's probably for the best that we part ways. Anyway...
Hello tiny dating pool! It's hard to know what to write in these things. Do you go for edgy, cool, whatevs attitude or do you make a super serious effort to write about yourself in earnest? I think the trick is probably somewhere in the middle. I'm an in the middle kind of guy I think. I can empathise with both sides and then hopefully find the middle ground. I should probably get a job in mediation or something.
I think I can best sum myself up as an introverted geek who likes talking and listening to people and wandering through life without trying to control everything. I have an inquisitive nature and I'm a bit impulsive which I have to fight sometimes. I like going on journeys and seeing where I end up. I float between bisexual and homoflexible for the most part so while I have a preference for men, I am still open to others.
I meditate often because I find in beneficial in many ways but I don't care if you don't meditate. I don't have religion but I don't care if you do or not (faith or lack thereof is your own business and is no indicator of being a dick either way in my experience)
I'm a creative type. I write, knit, needle felt and do make up from time to time. I find them useful outlets. I also dance like a loon when glow sticks are put in my hands.
I'm pretty easy going about most things. I have a sarcastic and sometimes dark sense of humour.
Kink munches are my main social bread and butter so if you go to any Brighton and Manchester munches, you'll most likely see me there.
I currently have one boyfriend.
