Okay ladies... take a deep breath, relax, and we'll get through this. It is, after all, only a dating site. Nothing to get too worked up over.
Updated 08/18/2016: But before I get to my introduction, I do think it's good to point out that, from my point of view, this IS a dating site. If I've messaged you, chances are I found something attractive about you and reached out to see if anything clicks between us. Unlike men who are looking for hook-ups or to play women, my goal is to build relationships and my intentions are always genuine.
So, on to the rest...
I am a Seattle area comic book artist in the middle of creating my own book series whenever my 40-50 hour work week allows me to break away. I love to get out and have fun and enjoy the scenery, but also like to stay in occasionally to snuggle up to a good movie or book.
I like to be an open minded individual and keep things peaceful and calm during most tough situations, but tend to get angry when people use ignorance as an excuse not to learn and improve themselves. I love the variety in this world with people and everything in it. And so i have a hard time understanding why others don't feel the same.
I have a wonderful primary girlfriend with whom I am focusing my relationship energy on right now. (Please look up the difference between Polyamory and Polygamy.) I am not on here to debate Poly vs. Mono. I am not "into this lifestyle" to have a bunch of orgies with random people I don't know. I believe in safe partners, both mentally and physically. I do believe that we all each have something special to share with one another on so many different levels. And I will not deny a friendship with another man or woman just because a partner will be jealous of that time spent with someone. I am also Bi and leaning towards heteroflexible the more I learn about that term, but list myself as straight because my relationship-focus right now is just on women. I'm a bit burnt out when it comes to men these days. Long story for those willing to sit down and have a cup of coffee and get to know me better.
Ideal Poly Situation:
Here is where I'll lose most people; my overall desire is to have two or three ladies in my life who enjoy the comic book industry and would like to join me as we travel to comic and entertainment conventions while we create a story universe. I'm looking for a live-in community relationship with my partners. But keep in mind this is an ideal setting and I'm not going to avoid a good relationship with someone just because they don't fit my Poly Community goal.
Unicorn Hunting: I've been hearing the term Unicorn Hunting from others. I see a lot of profiles with women very aggressively stating they don't want to be a couple's "third". I'm not looking for all my partners to be in romantic relationships with each other. That's up to them and if it happens, cool. If not, cool. But for me it's just as much of a community as I can build the better.
Health and body:
I've been working out and getting my body healthier. I'm not a complete health nut. And there is nothing wrong with anyone who is. Good for them. But for me I'm hitting a level of comfort with my health in both foods and exercise. So anyone who is up for hiking or getting outdoors, I'm definitely down. I have nothing against anyone being vegetarian, but please note I am mostly Paleo, so I'm all about meats, vegetables and fruits. Popcorn and soda are my cheat items when going to the movies.
I have three kids. Two daughters and one son. And they already have a Mother. I may not get along with her any more, but she is still their Mother. And I am not looking for someone to be another Mother to my children. But I do require that someone entering my life knows my children will be there as well. Even if it's just for a night every few weeks.
I am now snipped as well and not having any more kids for a while. I feel it's responsible of me to have done this instead of expecting women to always be the ones who have to be on birth control. I believe sex should be safe and fun; safe mentally and physically.
Video Games: I play Rocket League Civilization VI Borderlands 2, World of Warcraft, Star Wars: Old Republic, Skyrim, Payday2 and Left 4 Dead2. But I don't really play all these games too often to be very proficient because I have other things to work and think about. (artwork first and foremost! Gaming second!) I have a semi-addictive personality and while I like to game a lot, I chose not to let it be my "life" in order to get my art carear on track.
Actually, I would LOVE to hear what you first noticed about me on this site. Did you see my photo and click my page? Did you see our matching percentage? Was it random? Whether you're actually interested in me or not I would actually like to hear your thoughts. I feel like there are some pointers I would love to share with some of you ladies (not to get into your pants) but to help with profile photos, descriptions and such from a guys point of view when on a dating site. And by all means I'm more than happy to hear what you think would help me on my page as well.
Who says we can't all just make friends in the meantime and help each other out? :)
Movies: Favorite movie is Ghostbusters followed closely by the 5th Element, Spaceballs and The Matrix. I Like all genres of movies though. Recent repeated favorites include - Marvel's Avengers, Bad Boys II, Zoolander, Tropic Thunder, Dodgeball, Matrix 2, Spider-man 1 & 2, 300, all things Star Trek, Star Wars and Stargate!
I would love to talk Star Wars Spoilers with anyone looking to have some fun chat about the current movies. :D We've got Rogue One coming out at the end of 2016... the speculation alone is hours of debate/discussion!
TV: Massively into Supergirl, Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Agents of SHEILD, iZombie, the Walking Dead and more!
Also: Dr. Who, Breaking Bad, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Castle, Warehouse 13, Alphas, Lost Girl, Face Off and I bought the entire series of G.I. Joe, Transformers and ThunderCats on DVD and still have to sit and start watching them all. Who's going to join me?
Music: Metal, Rock, Techno, Symphonic Metal Opera. These include Metallica, Nirvana, Offspring, Skrillex, DeadMau5, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Hammerfall, Aqua, Toybox, Vengaboys, Scooter, Chemical Brothers and more! I'm also getting into Kesha, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and a few others. But the biggest replay factor lately belongs to Baby Metal.
Food: Pizza! I'm all for Italian, Greek, Mexican, Chinese and Japanese. I eat a lot of variety of foods, but I'm not always into every single dish. I'm not a spicey foods kind of guy, but I'll eat some mild hotwings! :) I'm also sensative to Vegetarians and Vegans. I have no need to push meat or other products onto people. But that being said, if you're uncomfortable with someone eating meats, i'm probably not a good person to hang out with.
Diet: I'm currently doing a somewhat Paleo diet; meats, vegetables, fruits.
And most importantly, even as little as I see them; my children.
On good days I'll get out of the house to watch a movie or go to my favorite cafe and relax.
*You want to talk to a geeky/nerdy fellow.
*Poly or not, if you're interested in either a nice casual dinner and drinks and relaxing conversation. Or even going for a hike and getting out for some exercise. Again, I don't require people to be Poly to be involved in my life.
*Even if you're just curious and want to chat. Give me a buzz. We don't know until we try, right?
