A caveat, before I start: When I get into relationships, I always become very controlling. It's not something I notice I'm doing, and something I never realise I've done until it's all over and done with. It's not something which makes me happy, in fact it upsets me that I've done it when I look back and see that I have. So, if you decide you want anything to do with me, you must also never be afraid to call me out on this when I'm doing it. Please don't enable this behaviour, it is anti-social and unhealthy.
I've been around the world. I've gone through death and rebirth many times as events caused drastic changes in my persona. I look back at the man I remember I once was; sometimes wondering what happened to him and why he's gone, other times bidding good riddance.
I sometimes wither, but mostly I grow.
I am an unabashed feminist. I am bi-racial and proudly the child of an immigrant. Some have accused me of being a vampire or otherwise immortal as they have not seen me age in over a decade. My pics are old, but the only thing that's changed from then to now is my haircut.
I have become concerned with my health and the types of food I eat and I have begun exercising again to get back into shape. My perfect match would share these feelings and desires, but has the intelligence to understand why. Someone who never thinks that they're too grown to learn any more, who hasn't lost their curiosity, and who is always willing to learn or experience something new.
I am a great many things, and could probably go on for a bit, but these are my words; and because these can only be words until you know me, I will save them for when you do. Of course by then there will be no more need to say them. :)
