If you are polyamorous, you won't be anything more than a friend while you are poly -- & that is unlikely. I don't have time for the drama that inevitably forms around the newest justification for indecision and lack of commitment. Polyamory is just a way to lend an aura of legitimacy while you shop around for a better prospect. Since I am not a Christian, I don't really need this legitimization.

I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Japanese Studies (Asian Studies: Japan). I focused on art history and religion. Other than that, I am a single father (divorce finalized Dec 2003), a computer geek, Thelemic occultist and Naval Reservist. I enjoy philosophy, religion and politics. I returned from doing a tour in Kuwait courtesy of the US Navy in 2007.

I am an INTJ. OkCupid says I am Enneagram type 3, however the Free RHETI Sampler (Enneagram test) shows me as a 5, which seems to be more accurate description-wise.
[UPDATE 20121021] On my Senior Year at UOregon. All is going well, but I am a bit busy. I also work part time at the UOregon Knight Library.
[UPDATE 20110805] I moved to Eugene. Now I am off to Japan and I will be back at the end of the month. I am attending UO this Autumn.
[UPDATE 20110418] I will be moving to Eugene at the end of July. I am rather excited.
[UPDATED] I have been accepted to the University of Oregon's Asian Studies program. I will be moving to Eugene after June 2011 in preparation for the Fall Term 2011.
I took advantage of the poor economy and Post 9-11 GI Bill to enrolled in College. My goal is to attain a transfer degree from Portland Community College and transfer to the University of Oregon in order to earn a degree in Asian Studies with a focus on Japan. Thus, I am attending College and raising my children. I am still a member of the US Naval Reserves. This means that for 2-3 weeks every year I get to go to Japan to hang out in Tokyo (the base is in Yokosuka).
I occasionally use my LibraryThing account. You can see what I am reading now, and future books I pick up by going there.
Movies Yojimbo, Spirited Away, Soylent Green, Nausicaa, Vertical Ray of the Sun (Foreign Films, Art films, Anime, Cult Films & Action films)

Bands/Music: Laibach, Current 93, Death in June, Sol Invictus, Within Temptation, Bauhaus, Nurse With Wound (NeoFolk, Classical/Baroque/etc, Gothic, Death Rock, Gothic Metal, Epic Metal, Ambient Industrial, Experimental, NeoClassical)
You can see what music is being played by checking out my LastFM profile.
Food: I cook and I like food from various cultures. Reoccurring favorites seem to be Chinese & Japanese, but that may be because the recipes are rather quick. I tend to get extravagant on the weekends.
(You might infer that I enjoy lists, letting people know what I am doing and social interaction sites).
Seriously, I would like to talk to people with similar/overlapping interests. This does mean that you are able to converse with some modicum of ability.
