I believe love is not about getting lost in each other's eyes as much as it is about looking outward together in the same direction with someone you trust. Hello. I care about sustainability, the environment, social justice, and solutions to the crisis of civilization in the age of climate change and peak oil, and I live a fairly simple existence of constant learning, activism, creative exploration, and laughter. I've become moderately successful at using my deplorable excess of character to sing about a world with a future and share the steps we dance to get there. I speak in schools and at public events, sing and songwrite, write and perform theatre, create online comics, and enjoy an almost absurdly broad range of interests. I value my sense of inner purpose, which helps me face daunting ecological news. If you're looking for a nice normal guy, that's not me; I am a nice unusual guy. I'm never bored, but I crave good company on my journey.
I am intelligent, communicative, and eccentric. I know how to be present, listen and share. I love two teenaged sons, and other children too. I enjoy the shmoozy romantic stuff and will serenade you and make romantic gestures, so I hope you enjoy that sort of thing, but I won't wear my 'best face' to woo anyone - you simply get to meet me as myself. I'd much rather discover if we can like each other warts and all, so you can rest assured I'm pretty much exactly what it says on the box. Ask me literally anything. Likewise, I respond well to personality and poorly to cosmetics, and I'll become interested in you as a complete and genuine person if at all; what's in your heart and what comes out of your mouth are a lot likelier to interest me than how you look. I value the witty, creative, practical, and engaged.
If we form a connection, I also look forward to sensuously pressing our lips together firmly enough to bruise a ripe plum. I'm very fond of kissing, you see. It's what I miss the most when I am lonely. I have thus far experienced three staggering kisses which stood apart from other kisses I've experienced like colour in a black and white film, and each was part of a profound relationship. I'd welcome being surprised by another such wow moment, but mostly I crave something more relaxed: good company, a mutually supportive good working partnership with little drama and a high confluence of mutual goals. I'd be particularly delighted to encounter a bit of both in the same package. I crave stable mutual fulfilment in mind, body and spirit, but to begin, let's just shoot for good talk and friendly company and relish the moment. After all, what's the point of trying to save the world if you don't also savour it?
Where we meet doesn't much matter to me, as long as it's conducive to relaxed conversation. A pleasant beverage, a satisfying meal, maybe a walk or outing. Comfort, good talk, exchange of anecdotes, laughter, questions, philosophy, flirting. I may sing.
