I'm optimistic, spiritual (but not religious), curious, compassionate affectionate and kind. A good listener and communicator.
I'm looking to connect with people who are centered and grounded. Confident in who they are. Mature and independent, yet looking for someone to enjoy life with. Someone able to talk openly and honestly about their feelings, and hear me talk openly and honestly about mine. Someone who isn't afraid to love and be loved in return.
I'm a software engineering consultant, and spend my free time reading, snowboarding, practicing yoga, and playing pinball.
Being present and not focusing too much on the past or the future.
Physical intimacy, giving big hugs, snuggling/cuddling, massaging, sensual touching and kissing, yet respecting your boundaries.
Recent movies that I enjoyed: Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, Looper, Inception, Argo, Moonrise Kingdom, All is Lost, Guardians of the Galaxy, Boyhood, Predestination.
I gave up cable so I'm not watching much TV now. I can't stand sitcoms with a laugh track (sorry Big Bang Theory lovers). Recently caught up on past seasons of The Newsroom and Game of Thrones now that I can subscribe to HBO without cable. Currently watch Modern Family and stream or watch a movie or two on DVD. Shows in 2016: Ballerz, Transparent, Black Mirror.
I enjoy a wide range of music, including jazz, EDM, the Beastie Boys, Daft Punk, Pink Floyd, Annie Lennox, The Beatles, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Lenny Kravitz, Moby, No Doubt, and U2.
When it comes to food, I'm an omnivore, but I love vegetables, and don't need meat in every meal (everything in moderation). I also enjoy cooking, baking and grilling.
You're OK being with someone non-monogamous. I consider all the people who are close to me/important to me in my life "friends". Some of those friendships are deeper emotionally than others. Some involve differing degrees of physicality. Some are lifelong and some are short-lived. I spend more time with some of them than others. That's how I see non-monogamy: it's given me the freedom to have lots of relationships with lots of people and all of those relationships have the opportunity to find their authentic, full expression, whatever that might be.
Definitely message me if you're in a place where you desire physical intimacy (e.g., cuddling, massage, co-sleeping, and/or kissing) without sex. I can respect that space (was there myself once) and remain present to it without pushing for more.
