|Who Tydyn Rain wants to meet
||I am always open to connecting with people of like-mind, who are open-minded, free-spirited, free-thinking, unorthodox, unconventional, nonconformist, nontraditional, eclectic, and eccentric. I am still defining exactly what it is that I want (I seem to be very adaptable/flexible/versatile in this regard), but multiple deep, intense, fulfilling, different, unique, special friendships and long-term relationships are definitely a part of it. Open triads, quads, group marriages, and intimate networks of friends/lovers all fascinate me. I define relationships in terms of "connections" and "resonances", some of which can be incredibly deep and intense right from the "start"...
I have come to realize that in searching for these deep, intense connections with strong resonances, I am actually looking for my Tribe/Group Marriage members/configuration...
||My full name is Tydyn Rain St. Clair (usually just Ty for short) and I am a green-eyed, left-handed, gifted (nexus personality type), bipolar (type 3/cyclothymia, ultra-rapid cycling, no medication ever taken), autodidactic, eclectic ,eccentric, multicultural, multilingual global citizen with many, many, many deep interests and passions, which gives you some idea of my personality. I also consider myself to be a botanist/horticulturist (specializing in the woody bamboos, though I study and love all plants), pagan/pantheist/panetheist/panpsychist, naturist/nudist, as well as polyamorous by nature. I love connecting with open-minded, free-spirited, free-thinking people of like-mind world-wide, and having long, deep, intense conversations. I do not fit within the parameters of any easily defined classification, as I am exceedingly multifaceted/multifarious/multitalented, with many diverse aspects. I bridge worlds...
I am unorthodox, unconventional, nonconformist, nontraditional, open-minded, free-thinking, free-spirited...though not a rebel just for the sake of being so.
I love learning, growing, developing, expanding, exploring, teaching, reading, writing, contributing, helping, connecting, sharing, opening, including, integrating, synthesizing, loving, catalyzing...
Some of my more important interests/passions include:
Bamboo, Botany, Horticulture/Gardening, Tropical Forest Restoration, Permaculture, Languages, Paganism, Naturism/Nudism/Free Body Culture, Polyamory/Polyfidelity, Polyintimacy/Polysexuality/Polyeroticism/Gr
oup Sexual Dynamics, Tantra/Sacred Sexuality/Erotic Spirituality/Sex Magick, Jane Roberts/Seth Material, Metaphysics, Quantum Physics, Spirituality, Metapsychology, Eco-Villages/Intentional Communities, Martial Arts (T'ai-Chi-Ch'uan, Aikido and other internal forms), Giftedness/Genius/Nexus Personality Type, Pantheism/Panetheism/Panpsychism, Nature, Ecotourism/Deep Travel, Backpacking/Hiking/Trekking, Wholism, Wholistic Health and Fitness, Physical Immortality, Biology, Ecology, Science, Genetics, Computers and the Internet, Books, Computer Games (Strategy, Role Playing, and Simulation), Group Marriage, Intimate Networks, Nakedness/Nudity, Sexuality, Seed Exchange, Cooking, Hedonism, Alternative/Sustainable Energy and Living, among other assorted things...
I see almost everything from a very different perpsective/view-point (multiple in fact) than what is considered mainstream. I see wholisms rather than fragments. I strongly believe that all aspects of our beings and our interactions must be opened and freed/liberated...our minds, spirits, bodies, love/relationships, sexuality/the erotic, etc... Those boundaries that I still have seem to weaken daily... I understand clearly that all knowledge/information, and in fact all things, are infinitely interconnected...one leads into the other.
Oddly, from everything that I understand, know, believe, and the perspectives that I have, I SHOULD be bisexual, however, I presently feel no leanings in that direction. I find women FAR too fascinating...
I have always been an extremely healthy person...I very rarely get sick, and if I do it is never serious, and only for a very short time. I have never broken a bone, never had a cavity, never had an allergy. I heal very quickly... I do not utilize allopathic medicine, as I believe the body is a naturally self-maintaining and self-regulating homeostatic system, that, without our interference, will be healthy.
I study the Myers-Briggs Type Inidcator and the Enneagram, and find them to be fascinating psychological tools. I have tried to fit myself within the parameters of their types, but have found it very difficult. I resonate somewhat well with the ENFP/INFP types in the MBTI, though other types call to me as well. In terms of the Enneagram, I feel that 4w5 "fits" me best, though again, others resonate with my being as well.
In terms of Western Astrology I am a Leo. In the Chinese system I am a Water-Rat. I was born at 7:20AM on July 31, 1972, on a drizzly morning in Philadelphia, PA.
There always has, and always will exist a very strong connection and love between my (soon-to-be) ex-wife, Karla, and myself. We were married for 12 years, and although our paths have diverged and we have officially separated, we are still very close (though long distance) friends. We still talk on the phone with each other very often, and hopefully always will be a part of each others' respective lives.
If I were to formulate the almost perfect position/job/vocation for me, it would be a tri Botanical/Horticultural Collector, Tropical Forest Restorationist, and Bamboo Botanist working on the behalf of a Botanic(al) Garden or Arbortum. I could very effectively put my strong facility and love for languages to use while dealing with the local populations in the various countries through which I travel and in which I work. Aside from collecting for my Garden/Arboretum, and doing restoration work on the local tropical forest ecosystems, I would also help the local communities to live in a more sustainable manner with the native forests by teaching and implementing Permacultural designs and systems.
In terms of languages, I speak/read/write English (of course) and Spanish fluently, and am almost fluent in Portugues as well. I have studied and do study many languages, and I absolutely love learning them...it's fun to me. When I hear another language being spoken, my ears perk up as I try to decifer syllables/words/structure. How languages are related to each other, how they are different from each other, and how they mix together fascinates me to no end.
Some things I love in no particular order:
*Spicy Foods (the spicier the better)
*Ethnic Foods (of all sorts)
*Really Good Books (of all sorts)
*Swimming (whether at pools, beaches, rivers, lakes, or streams...nude, of course...I don't own a swimsuit)
*Music (of ALL sorts, though I particularly love World Beat/Global Fusions...music that evokes emotions and feeling...that has meaning)
*Cooking (I get very creative)
*Beauty, Elegance, Intelligence, Freedom, and Power, expressed in their many diverse forms
*Nature and Natural Ways - The foundation of my being
*Being Nude, especially in Nature
*Beautiful Gardens and Arboreta
*Being a Catalyst for others' Learning and Growth
