I believe that life is too short to waste on negative energy. I can make anything funny. ;) Chris is a gentleman with a passion for life, a social consciousness and a desire for socially conscious ladies who share my attitude toward life. I'm an avid rock climber, hiker and camper...simply dwelling in the mountains nearly every chance I get. A lot of my time goes toward non-political activism which deals with creating a sustainable society from the bottom up starting with a sweeping change of the culture. I'm a geek in more ways than one...and I sing and dance carefully in the shower. ;) What are your thoughts on all this? Let's take it slow. You only live once. Take me or leave me. ;)
In More Detail...
My desire to get involved with non-political activism began to develop when my deployment to Iraq awoke me to take a hard look at the world and what's necessary to make it work for everyone. I'm engaged with The Zeitgeist Movement which seeks to evolve the values of society from self interest to social interest...from opinion based decisions to evidence based decisions...from money interest to life interest...from living in a bubble to reconnecting our species with nature.
I am very attracted to live music, so I get out to a good show whenever I can. Go down a little bit for my musical interests. On the outdoor side, I can be not so easily found rock climbing, hiking, camping...or easily be found sharing my activism. ;)
I'm really good at removing negativity from the people in a room and replacing it with a sense of connection. I find that deep connection is essential for happiness in any social situation... Oh...and I'm great at cuddling! You must be a cuddler too. ;)
What people first see in me is my radically different mind and my ability to find the beauty and value in every person. ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can strengthen my connections. I like to keep my thinking outside of any bubble of comfort, tradition or dogma so that I can feel truly connected to everything and everyone around me... Connection is a main source of my happiness...and yours too. ;)
On a typical Friday night, I am getting my amazing friends together for an exciting time doing something I've never done before...or I'm at a concert. ;)

What I'm Looking For
You should message me if you're honest, patient and have lots of love to give in return for the favor of doing the same for you! ;) In addition, I want to talk with someone with a personality that is uplifting and down to Earth at the same time and who is socially conscious and uses their mind creatively, not conformatively... The further from the mainstream of society you are, the more likely I am to enjoy your presence. ;) Last but not least, don't be a player of the 'Control Or Be Controlled' game... Don't you think we'll both be happier if I don't have control of you and you don't have control of me?
