I have been a nudist as long as I can remember. If I really think about it, there was a day at the end of sixth grade that I decided that clothes were a pretty stupid invention, and that I was going to give them up, whenever I could, right there and then. I didn't know anything of nudism or naturism, I just knew I was more comfortable when naked. Talking with them about it years later, my parents tell a different story that my dislike of clothes started an at even earlier age. They claim that they could hardly keep clothes on me when I was a toddler, and I only begrudgingly wore them when I started school.
As I plotted my course as a budding nudist, I started out by going naked in my room and around the house whenever no one else was home. After getting caught by my parents and siblings a few times--and they didn't freak out--I got bolder and went naked even when they were home. My parents, being the consummate ex-hippies, wanted their kids to find their own way, and thought the nudity was a phase I would grow out of. Fortunately, I never did.
I was always a chubby kid that matured into a chubby adult. As chubby guys my age became very self conscious in high school and college, choosing to cover up lest someone ridicule them for being chubby, my resolve to stay naked and eschew clothes whenever possible made me very comfortable in my own skin, and in a paradoxical way made me much more social when naked. At school and work when I was clothed I was very shy and reserved, but family and friends and acquaintances, my nudity broke down my inhibitions and made me social, chatty, and the life of the party.
By the time I left for college, my identity as a nudist and a naturist became central to my personality. I was naked as much as possible in front of roommates, friends, dorm mates, fraternity brothers, and just about anyone who was cool with it and knew me past a glancing familiarity across a dining hall or the quad. It was in college that I discovered social nudity, and met other friends who were as committed to getting and staying naked as I was, and it was awesome!
Growing up in Upstate New York, the snow and cold never bothered me much and never put much of a crimp into my nudism. I've moved around the country a bit, spending time in the Bay Area, and the DC-Baltimore area before resettling in Northwestern Pennsylvania a little closer to home and my parents. I'm still close with my parents and my siblings, and yes, they all know that I am a nudist.
I live with my non-nudist husband of 10 years, and he is very supportive of my nudist and naturist ways even if he does not partake in them himself. I am always naked at home, and frequently elsewhere when I get the chance. Odds are if you have been to my house, you've seen me naked. I have no problems being the only naked guy in a room full of clothed people, and some might call me an exhibitionist. I love getting naked in the great outdoors, and there is nothing better than hiking and camping naked, or spending time naked by the lake shore.
I'm very much into body positivity and think that everyone is beautiful (and should get naked).

Who I'd like to meet
Other nudists both far and wide for friendship, chat, and comraderie. Always looking to meet new nudist friends, especially gay male nudist friends.
I am geeky AF and very much into geek culture. I love sci-fi, gaming (both video and board games), comics, pop culture, and the like. I'm a huge TV and movie fan, and love good theater. I cultivated a love of camping and hiking and the great outdoors from my parents. Photography is my biggest hobby, and I'm a huge hockey (Go Sabres!) and baseball (Go Blue Jays!) fan. Coffee is life and beer is a close second!
Too many to list here.
Everything except country and rap.
My parents for sure.
