Whole-hearted, passionate, honest and direct. I follow politics avidly, read books daily, am conversant in anything but professional sports, but even that I can listen to with amusement in small doses. Come from an expressive, visually attuned family of 'do-ers' who take pride in what they've accomplished on any given day, who naturally gravitate to studios and workshops. Don't play golf or tennis (a 30-year marriage taught me the best relationships leave room for non-shared pursuits) but love the outdoors - kayaking, swimming, planting, biking/walking/hiking anywhere. Change my own tires, bait my own hook, can use jumper cables without hurting anyone. A 'toucher' when conversing, a spontaneous smoocher, my guy will never lack for attention, affection, emotional support. Financially independent - my career has been good to me - have raised two adult daughters to be critical thinkers, contributing citizens, kind people.
Guys I find attractive are at peace with who they are, are okay saying "heck, I don't know", laugh readily, opt to view others with compassion instead of judgment, finding the world and the humans therein both nuts AND amusing. Relationships, especially new ones, can be scary: I'm looking for that brave steady soul who can stay open to new possibilities in life and in love despite the occasional social gaff, normal human imperfection. Someone who's weathered a long term committed relationship before, and treasures the upside.
