I have a go-with-the-flow mentality that influences a lot of the things I do. I've never found it a requirement that every moment of every day has to be planned for; there's something to be said for just making it up as you go along - within reason, of course. I enjoy comedy (movies or stand-up). I think it is safe to say that I am a bit of a nerd; I like to read Science Fiction and Fantasy and I enjoy playing card/tabletop games, among other activities.
If my friends told you about me, they would say that I have a calming presence while still being fun to include in activities. I'm loyal to a fault and they would be there in a heartbeat if I ever needed help. They know they can tell me anything in confidence and trust that I will keep it secret. They would say that I am quiet when around new people, but it is more a result of being better with written communication than verbal; when I have enough time to think about what I want to say, I can hold my own in a conversation.
I am single. I was in a 4-year relationship which ended the day before Thanksgiving last year; that was all kinds of fun, lol... After 8 months it seems I'm in a better place, but I have to admit that was rougher than I was expecting. The main reason I am here is to find a cuddle friend who can provide the basics of physical contact that I was never able to get while in a relationship; I am referring only to strictly platonic contact - there is a lot to be said for the healing capability that lies in human contact. Perhaps I can even provide the same sort of thing for you, if you'd like. I have no real preference for whether you are older or younger than I am, but I think I'd like to talk with you first so that we can both get a sense for each other.
I had my first - and only - cuddle session last year, and it seems I was right: it definitely feels amazing to have someone running their fingers along my arms and over my back. I like ambient music in the background so that it can distract my brain (which never seems to shut off). I also appreciate blankets for more than just the warmth they provide; it is difficult for me to explain, but I feel that blankets kind of... isolate the outside world away from you when you are cuddling, and it does so in such a way that your whole world now consists of just you and your cuddle partner... I really like the way that feels.
I can think of different things that would be interesting based on what I've read here on the forums (such as candles) and from my own thoughts. It could involve a movie with snacks, pillows, and a blanket (if it is still cold the way it has been here recently). It could also be something as simple as laying next to each other on a couch. I don't have any real experience of cuddling from a giver's standpoint, but I'm confident in my ability to adapt as needed. The best times for me would likely be either after work on a weekday or on weekends. I have a very strong work ethic that I feel would translate well into cuddle therapy; I think that just comes from working in the medical field.
Speaking of which, I have no photo posted (for professional reasons) as I work in a public setting. I'd be happy to send a photo upon request. I also use voicechat regularly to talk with my friends and family; we could easily use something like that for video conversations as well.
Hope to hear from you! Professionals are welcome to message me, and the same is true for anyone else.

Dec. 25th, 2017 -> Note: I won't be checking this very often anymore. I used to check this every day, but I've realized that it will likely be a very long time before my area starts to get cuddlers. If you send me a message, It should stay in my Inbox for a while - at least long enough for me to check it. Good luck to all of you in your search for a cuddle partner. May the New Year continue to be a better year for all of us.
