I'm in a comitted relationship. I guess you'd call it an open relationship, but I don't feel like I fit in with the polyamorous crowd. It's more like I have an organic view of relationships. I don't want to get married ever, I don't want children, I just want to live and experience. I'm looking for friends like that. Friends, friends with benefits, even romantic relationships, that can just BE. It seems like the most natural thing in the world to me, but it appears to be the rarest of all. I don't really exclude any possibilities except for those that exclude others. Do you want a long term thing? That could happen! Casual fling? I'm open to it, though I prefer to get to know someone first. What I want is to meet people and just be free to explore our connetion, and not to do so with a ton of initial expectations on either side.
I'm trying to branch out socially, as running a business the past 5 years has really gotten me out of any kind of scene. I've been having a fun and weird time lately as the straight guy in an LGBTQ circle, making a lot of friends there. The move from the south to the PNW was quite a change and I'm still doing a lot of exploring.
I'm also cooking a ton. Not super new for me, I love to cook! But I've been getting more into vegan cooking, finding new ways to prepare dishes. I've learned that I like making cream soups with coconut milk more than I ever liked cream/milk. Just for example.
I've also got about two years worth of beard on my face. It's always clean, styled, and trimmed. Since moving out here, it gets a lot of compliments.
I also find that I can't help judging people by their choices in this section, and it's completely silly. I find most modern country music to be pretty lame. But if you like it, that says absolutely nothing about whether or not I might like YOU! Despite that, I would still see it on your list and think "pssh, that's lame." I would think you're lame for liking Justin Beiber, then click over to my t.A.t.U. Pandora station like that's totally bad ass.
My point is that what you put in this section is ultimately pretty trivial, but we all have a tendency to judge people by these choices whether we want to or not. So I'm not going to read yours. I want to know who you are first, and if I like that person, I'll find our common ground as far as music and movies are concerned. I'm sure we have some.

This might be the best section to mention that while my "drugs" answer is "never," I do enjoy pot now and then. I just feel like that's not exactly "doing drugs." I don't like smoking it tho, so it's still a no on that.
