not impressed with this website, after a few days. photos don't load, profiles don't save... okcupid is a lot more fun! but this is paid for, so i'll stick around for another couple of weeks.
i don't believe in ethnicities. yes, we all have a cultural heritage, but to classify, label, and divide each other has brought more trouble than anything else. i thrive on the cultural diversity around me and prefer the company of people who are well traveled, open-minded, and equally passionate about finding what unites us, not what divides us.
looking for companionship, friendship; the first is easy, the second is a precious gift...true friends are few and far between, and i am lucky to have had a handful for a few decades. trust is paramount.
i enjoy deep thinkers who can switch to silly, men who appreciate good food (=clean, raw and fine but never refined, self-caught/grown if possible, colorful but mostly green and orange) and clean water, old wine and microbrews, i don't enjoy alcohol much but will enjoy sampling both; but mostly, i'd like to spend time with someone who does what he does with passion, compassion, and conviction.
family...both biological and soul... are important.
will not respond to members whose profiles do not contain photos. there is no reason why you should not post one other than this: you are really not ready to be here.
also: i don't mind making the first move, but if you don't have the courtesy to respond even a gentle "thank you, but i am not interested", good luck with your search. as progressive as i am, you'd be surprised how much i love assertive men who make the first move.
"we come upon evidence of presence.
we jiggle a battered saucepan.
there is a shredding that makes us more alive.
word-bunches and music bring in new compassion.
the shadow has been of great service.
things that have hurt us bring blessings.
we made an agreement before we came to these lives.
we responded to a question, and the wave of that answer (yes!) carries us along.
The body’s boat contains the motion that will break open and set us free.
we know this, and we forget.
the evening sky turns dark garnet red.
we turn that way to worship.
nothing belongs to anyone.
like lightning, we become experts at dying, our mouths burning with sweetness.
i see my beauty in you…."
