First of all, does anyone know what 'Other Relationship' means? I'd be interested to know. Is that like code for "I'm married, but I'd like a threesome?"
But curiosity aside....
I like people who are real and honest, maybe a little curmudgeonly, and cynical (but not jaded, caustic,or overly sarcastic), and definitely possessing a good sense of humour. I'm a cynical idealist at heart. Books and films fuel my life, and my take on the world is rarely black or white (not in the racial sense) but always varying shades of grey. The world is too complicated and beautiful to be defined in absolutes.
What turns me on in women is, bar-none, intelligence and compassion. Next to that, a sense of humour is a must, and a certain irreverance definitely kicks ass! Open-mindedness is also key.
Truthfully, all I am is a warm person who likes to see the same in others, and expects nothing else from life, humanity, and the weather. I'm laid back, and not a workaholic, but determined to succeed in life. I'm still searching for that comfort zone where money, art, and time are in equilibrium, and I can work at something I enjoy, and make a decent living, whilst having time for friends and family. To be plain, I ain't no bum, though. I think a person has to stay busy, or else be independantly motivated.
I finished my first short film, and having spent some time meandering through higher education, I'm determined to finally make a go at film making, which I've found is the only thing that'll make me truly happy. I'm also an artist, and have been known to write, when the muses visit me. I'm a huge history buff, as well.
Love is, unfortunately, the unknown factor in life. It's defined in so many ways, by so many people, and all the definitions are true. I have no expectations of anyone, but after a time, we all expect to be loved. Whatever the hell that means.
Soooooo........If you like books, great films, and are burdened by a frightening amount of Pop Culture references, and most importantly, if you're a junkie for conversation with people along those lines, then I'm your man.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
On a first date I would have Ernesto, my former Panamanian secret policeman- turned chauffer, drive us to a hidden beach, where awaiting us would be a dinner prepared by a blind, 90-year-old Master Sushi Chef, served on a wrought-iron table for two, embedded in the sand at the edge of the coming tide. We would be barefoot, and as the warm salt-water tickled our feet, we would dine. After dinner, in a nearby jungle clearing lit only by a bonfire, a Brazilian Capoeira group would dance for us, and the beating of the drums would be as intoxicating as the champagne (or vodka shots, if you're into that). Afterwards, we would return to the beach to swim in the warm ocean, whilst nearby Fredrique, my Haitian manservant/pearl diver stood by to prevent possible drowning. Once out of the water, he would be dismissed, and we would make passionate love on the sand (a la From Here To Eternity) followed by a return to the water to wash out any sand that may have crept up in untoward places...
we could hit a Second Cup, split the bill, and get to know each other. Okay, fine, I got the check covered.
