My self-summary
Please Note: While I occasionally visit this site, I am not actively looking. If I look at your profile, it is probably because OKCupid has sent me a message telling me we'd be a good match, but that tends not to be the case most of the time, since most of those tend to identify as monogamous.

If you identify as any variation of monogamous, or have an expectation that your partner be monogamous or exclusive with you, please move along to the next profile.

I see the internet as a great way to make connections, but a horrible way to get to know someone. Don't be surprised if I bring up the subject of meeting for a casual conversation early on (even within the first few messages).

I am currently involved in a great relationship, but I am open to exploring other opportunities, should they arise as I identify as non-monogamous. While everything is subject to change, I suppose I have a preference for non-exclusive dating at the moment.

I have been best described as a Rock. I am a stable and dependable person who can be a bit stubborn, unyielding, and pedantic. If you know your Chuck Norris jokes well, just know that I'm the rock that Chuck Norris can't break.

The only thing that erodes this rock is the use of Logic and evidence to present well-reasoned arguments. If you want to shape this rock, that is all that is required.

I see relationships as two independent autonomous individuals on the journey through life who choose to travel together because they enjoy the companionship. They travel together voluntarily because it is mutually beneficial to each other, and not because one person imposes a specific view or vision on that other person.

I am following a specific path through life that I have chosen that I believe will bring the most happiness. You can choose to travel with me, or if you don't like the direction I'm heading, you can take your own path. If you feel the need to tell me that there is a better path to take, you better come to me with logic, reason and evidence.
What I’m doing with my life
I have far too many creative hobbies and very little time in the day to pursue them all.
I’m really good at
Critical thinking and analysis. I've always been able to cut through confusion and get to the heart of the matter. To me it's merely common sense, using logic and reasoning skills to figure it out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and I have red hair that women would kill to have.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My musical interests range between rock and metal, but depending on my mood, may also include classical/instrumental, jazz and the blues.

Primary Musical Interests: Megadeth, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, Hammerfall, Stormwitch.

Secondary Musical Interests: After Forever, Apocalyptica, Blind Guardian, Drain STH, Dream Evil, Dream Theatre, Epica, Helloween, Imperia, Iron Maiden, Lullacry, Mortal Love, Rhapsody, Sevendust, Stratovarius, The Crest, Therion. I've recently added Opeth to the list.

I am open to adding others to the list. Please note: The Primary Musical Interests above are bands I routinely listen to.

Regarding movies and tv, my primary interest is in documentaries, but I also favor Horror (real horror; not slasher), Fantasy and Science Fiction.
The six things I could never do without
Intelligent Conversation
Philosophical Thought
Freedom and Liberty
Drum Corps and Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the world is as messed up as it is, then I realize government has long been the problem, not the solution. Problems that we see today can be traced back to policies or laws governments passed 20 or 30 years ago. The effects simply take that long to manifest. It also doesn't help that the government works via incrementalism so no one actually sees how one action created a later problem.

How do you cook a frog? If you throw it into a pot of boiling water, it will react and jump out, but if you put it in a pot of cold water and slowly turn up the heat (incrementalism). it will sit happily in it until it is cooked alive. Do you see where society is heading?
