I don't exactly fit into a single stereotype. I am eclectic, think outside the box, driven but relaxed, an explorer and survivor. I've done hypnosis as a hobby for 15 years, served my country in the Army, been a cook/chef for 12 years, and currently work at programming computers.
I don't have an ideal, exactly. I have more of a minimum requirements concept. I'm polyamorous minded. For those who aren't familiar with the word, it boils down to a belief that a single person is unable to be everything that another single person needs without sacrificing parts of who they are. I'm not willing to sacrifice anything that I am for anyone else, nor am I willing to sacrifice anything that YOU are for me. A/the partner(s) need to like being around others, have reliable transportation, and be able to support themselves. They have to either be, or want to be, kinky and submissive, as BDSM is a major facet in my life. They have to be adaptable to new situations and new information, be pursuing their dreams, while still having goals, and enjoy talking regularly.
I have a weakness for natural redheads and SE Asians but that is not a requirement.
I work occasional contract jobs programming webpages, and am slowly getting into the mobile app development as well. But as bills still need to be paid, I also work a couple side jobs for rent and bills.
