Hello Rikki, Bear,
Welcome to our forum.
I liked your intro, it says a lot in succinct fashion. Hope you will enjoy your time on our site, read many threads, and post many thoughts and/or questions.
I envy your good fortune on OKCupid; sigh, I never got very far.
Glad to have you aboard.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
