I am highly intelligent, loyal, honest, definitely a sensualist and I'm extremely romantic--sometimes too much for my own good. I love to give and receive affection. I am passionate about many things: Love, Magick, Music, Books, Movies, Friends--sometimes my interests are outside the mainstream, odd, dark, experimental, etc, but I'm seldom considered a scary person. I like emotions and I want an emotional woman who wants to be free with her desires, wants, needs, opinions. I am very liberal. I love long conversations. I am a creative writer with a Master's degree in English; I write fiction and poetry and teach writing at a community college. I'm a good cook, especially Italian cuisine. I like to laugh and make others laugh, sometimes inappropriately. Sometimes you have to see the world as theatre in order to get through the day. I hope you are curious, inventive, outgoing, in touch with sexuality, intelligent, loving, and honest. And quite possibly weird in your or someone else's opinion.
I'm adding some answers: I did drugs, I don't mind if you do if you are in control and not in trouble. I smoke after quitting once and I will quit again. My other religion is pagan, I'm a Witch, really, ask me about it. It took an interesting road to get there and I am still a rationalist and love physics. I listed myself as True Romantic because I really am, I love romantic gestures and I would send you love poems if I fell for you; I'm looking for my other half, I believe she is out there.
I like spontaneity but I'm also such a romantic, I might plan something interesting. Definitely not a movie, nor a club or noisy place. I want to talk, get to know you, have some coffee or wine, listen to your interests and desires and tell you mine. I tend to be creative, so I might be able to surprise you, but there has to be good conversation involved. Yes, I love the dark, but I want to be able to see your eyes, look into them, have you see mine and know how I'm feeling, that what I say is true, that I'm focusing on you. Maybe a hike to a cold lake to put a bottle of wine into on an early Summer day, or a late date at The Coffee Place talking about absurdities and profundities and how often they seem the same, our wishes and desires.
