I totally love my biological family, and hope to have my own (chosen) family one day. What that will look like, should be a reflection of what happens when I partner with my man, not a pre-conceived value-laden idea about what should or shouldn't be.
I'm big on urban hiking, and enjoy stopping to read random historical plaques around town.

5a. Elders, I love old ladies!
6. Six seems like a random number... so, the sixth is my refusal to play by random institutional rules.
I'm pretty sex positive - so if you have a lot of hang ups about sex - or think a "colorful" sexual history is a turn-off, then we probably won't gel.
