See why I said I wasn't sure if I wanted to reveal this part of me on the forum?

I never said I "Hate people". I do hate a lot of things people do.

I wasn't always this way. I used to go around like, "I just LOOOOVE everyone", but after doing feline rescue for a few years, I changed, and it has been working for me just fine.

There are many folks in the pet-rescue community who turn me off for other reasons. Many are simply animal-hoarders who are masquerading as rescue-people (kind of like "swingers" or "cheaters" who think they are "poly"), or bored housewives who don't return people's calls but want the attention and praise that comes with "volunteering for a non-profit".

I'm not really a dyed-in-the-wool "polyamorist" anyway. I am able to "be in love" with more than one person in the same time period, but that doesn't mean that I LIKE the majority of the population, either individually or as a group.

I was pleased to discover that there is a blog called "The Polyamorous Misanthrope" because I was feeling a bit like an oxymoron up until that point.

I'm sorry if I upset you. Please don't feel you need to go into any kind of "hiding" over it. After all, I did say you reminded me of an amazing woman I happen to know personally. I'm just in a very odd mindset. As I say to friends who will listen, sometimes I have bipolar...sometimes it has me.

No issue. It takes more than someone on a message board comparing me to their ex to upset me.

My ex isn't the worst person to be compared to. Not even nearly.

I don't think you could have the double F. It would have to be something like WTFH. :-)

This is sort of along the lines of the "enigmatic" post I made in that other thread that RedPepper started.

PS -

I wasn't always like this. I used to think I was a people-person but doing cat-rescue will cure someone of that... Although we need people-people in animal rescue too.... it just ain't me babe.
When it comes to animal abuse I'm with you ygirl. Zero tolerance for it. No exceptions for it at all. There haven't been since I was 15 and became vegetarian after getting ahold of some "PETA" magazines.

I worked in equine rescue for a while and it was *hard*. It's definitely challenged me with my view of people, but I have a pretty strongly held philosophy around that kind of stuff and I work very hard to find compassion for all people, even the biggest assholes that starve and neglect their animals. I don't always succeed, but I never stop working towards it.

I'm a rescue kind of guy,.... dogs, cats, insects, reptiles, and people. I'm still waiting for someone to rescue me. Pathetic!
