I try to always be compassionate, and consider the other party's point of view before making judgments. I've been told I'm a sweet person, and I value sweetness and compassion very much in other people as well.
I love cats, fencing, reading, and occasionally computer games. Unfortunately, injuries in my twenties have slowed me down a bit with regards to fencing, so I stay active other ways.
I really want to meet someone with whom I can communicate effortlessly and comfortably, ideally, but in the vein of openness and inclusiveness I am open to talking to anyone who has something to say.
Note that I change my appearance fairly regularly, so the hair/facial hair in any given photo isn't likely to reflect my current appearance in those areas.
Movies? I don't watch them too often. I really liked The Man From Earth, I enjoyed the LotR series back in the day, I thought A Clockwork Orange was a pretty good adaptation of the book. Oh, and I identify with the characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
As far as music goes, I have a wide variety of favorites. My all-time favorites are Tom Waits, NIN, VNV Nation, Rammstein, Covenant. My current favorite is Phutureprimitive. Can literally never go wrong with some triphop. I also enjoy something electronic I can move to. Variety is the spice of life. Lately Florence and the Machine has been cranking up my feels in a very enjoyable manner.
Food is something I'm passionate about, but not in the way you might expect. I don't care all that much about eating it, I just love to cook. It's like a form of meditation to me. I enjoy inventing new recipes and sometimes just picking some ingredients and outright winging it. Always seems to turn out well.
A well-stocked kitchen
Cats (or any mammalian friends, really)
Intense physical activity
I try to spend some time every day in a state of self-reflection, taking a mental inventory of my thoughts and feelings.
I spend a lot of time thinking but I tend to be focused on tangible things, not constantly stuck inside my head.
Attempting to do something atypical.
If all else fails, maybe some video games.
I am unlikely to message anyone first, so if you have any hope of making a connection it's a good idea to say hi or something equivalent. Preferably followed by something interesting or relevant.
Oh, and I've been wanting to try playing D&D so if anyone has a group I can join please let me know. I DM'd a lot back in high school and never got to play. Seems to be a thing people do around here.
It's important that you're at least accepting of polyamory.
