I'm not interested in hook-ups, a life partner, or friends with benefits. I'm looking for a real connection with people, but without the need for me to be the focus of their life. In polyamory terms I am poly-solo.
I have been divorced for a number of years. I have two wonderful children, neither who live with me. One is in college and the other is about to graduate high school.
In myself and others I value: honesty and communication, open-mindedness, intelligence and common sense, knowing when to be an adult and when to play.
How someone looks means much less to me than who they are inside.
If it's your thing, on Myers-Briggs I am ENFP/ESFP. I fall at or on 50% between intuitive and sensing.
I love dancing (alone, because I dance like a white boy). I love concerts (so I can yell at them to turn it down because it's too loud.) I love children (so I can shake my cane at them and tell them to get off my lawn.) I have an odd sense of humor. I will either make you laugh or make you roll your eyes and think "what a nutcase."
I am well-traveled. I have lived in a place where the sun set for 4 months out of the year. I have walked through every timezone on the planet just by walking in a large circle. (There are only two places on the planet you can do this.) I have stood on top of glaciers and walked miles through burning sands. I have hiked barefoot through the snow in a mountain pass. I have swam through an underground stream where the ceiling glowed. I have stood on a beach in winter with my bare feet in the sand warmed by a natural hot spring. I have not killed a grizzly with my bare hands nor would I want to try.
Now my travel is generally limited to business trips and camping locally. I love waterfalls, thunderstorms, and the sound of rain. I love sunsets, walking on the beach, and poking dead things with a stick.
Presently I'm trying to figure out how to work less and play more. I would prefer to skip the work and just get a paycheck. Unfortunately I wasn't born into the right family, I don't have the right connections, nor do I have enough blackmail material against a major evil corporation to pull it off.
There is nothing I could do without except for the love and care of my friends.
