Dive a little deeper, or stay in the shallow end. Either way you'll still get wet.
As wild and enchanting as the place I call home
My life has not been a straight line by any means. I did not spend my girlhood planning my wedding or playing house. I dreamed of travel, adventure, and independence (I may have wanted to be a marine biologist, so I could swim with the manatees in the Amazon, but also wanted to be a hardened private eye). There are a lot of aspects of our culture's expectations that have never made sense, so I have carved my own path, and gathered my fellow weirdos and libertines to me along the way. Perhaps you crave the same.
Your co-conspirator in adventure
I approach new relationships with a sense of collaboration and creativity. I crave an intellectual connection as much as a physical one. My vortex-opening conversation skills are legendary. Hold on tight, or you will get lost in the void! I'm not your therapist, your muse, or the answer to all your problems. I am however, a very good time. I'm interested in who you are--the ways we're alike, the ways we're different. I'm funny! Of all the gin joints in all the towns, you walked into mine, and that alone gives you a story to tell. In a lot of ways I did become the scientist and detective I dreamed of being when I was young--I'm curious and dogged about what's present. Existence is a hell of a mystery, and I'll forever be on the case.
Tastes and proclivities
I like my appointments set in stone, but once we're together, you'll find me to be a very spontaneous and easy-going date. I prefer loose itineraries. I have a phd in rest and relaxation; but I do want to be on time for that class, dinner reservation, and showtime. I'm more reticent about travel these days, due to the pandemic, as well as environmental and cultural impact, so let's be intentional and make the best damn travel plans anyone has ever put together. I love casually exploring cities, wandering into cafes, museums, and art galleries, stumbling across street performers, falling into conversation with a stranger in the park.
I'm more comfortable and settled in my skin these days with my 30's in the rear-view mirror. However, you'll find me quite youthful in personality and visage. Is it the ADHD, or is it the Peter Pan complex? Give me a pack of sour patch kids and let me wax ecstatic about homoeroticism in Point Break as I wrap my superhero thighs around you; it's all foreplay to me. I laugh easily and often.
I'm a well-balanced hedonist. I've dabbled in kink and BDSM (I'd describe myself as a nurturing top), but I'm much more driven by the chemistry and the energy we create together, whether that be dark and intense, light and joyful, or everything in between. Basically, if you're more interested in fixating on your kink or fetish, or have a menu of acts to be performed, then we're not a good fit. If there's something you want to explore and we have a stellar connection, I'm game. You'll find me more open, playful, and dynamic the longer we know each other and the more our trust builds.
