Best-friends-AND-trust-respect-loyalty-AND-passion CAN all coexist. ...and I'm here calling in the man who has the capacity to go there with me.
For me, the foundation of a romantic relationship is respect, friendship, integrity, trust and an understanding that a relationship is a spiritual/growth path, not the path to guaranteed happiness. Maybe happiness will happen through our relationship growth, but it certainly won't happen through expectation!
Kindness, thoughtfulness, curiosity, honesty, consideration, caring, responsibility, and dependability ...those qualities make a man DAMN sexy. (And, I suspect, a woman as well.) Do you have a genuine curiosity and desire to learn deeply about the woman you’re interacting with? Do you want to know the heart and soul of her? Are you capable of sharing the authentic man that you are? I don't want to have a relationship with your game face, I want to know who you truly are, every perfect and imperfect aspect.
This kind of man is someone with whom I can journey for a lifetime.
I live a healthy lifestyle and am active, but absolutely loathe going to the gym-so I don't. I'm a dancer, and I do some boot-camp type workouts, and otherwise enjoy primarily outdoor physical activities. I'm in good shape, but not a low-body-fat super athlete. I'm soft, cushy and feminine, and strong and flexible. And happy this way. If you're curious about the kind of dance I do, look here www.ecstaticdance.org. I describe it as a combination of a great workout, a good meditation, and an exhilarating game. I always feel amazing after 2 hours of dancing with friends in an inclusive, loving community. Lucky me!
I have a huge heart and can absolutely love other people's children (and do, as a matter of fact). Not in some sappy, sentimental, pushover way; but I really see the unique being each child is, and how they are continually in the process of forming themselves. It's a privilege for adults to be part of a child's formative years.
If you have children I hope you have at least 50% custody, that you are a dedicated father, that you consciously work on learning and improving yourself as a parent, and that you are fully involved in your children's lives and support them in all ways.
Books, shows, movies- any that nourish or feed me in some way, either teaching me something I'm interested in, evoking emotions, or showing me beauty.
Music: eclectic, not mainstream.
Sleep. Being present. Love. My health, my children, my family, my friends. Sensuality. Nature. Being creative. Sleep. Spirituality. Being. People with whom I share love. Humor. My brain. Laughter. Friendship. Dance. Loving touch. Creativity. Energy in all it's forms. Time to myself. Time intimately connecting with my beloved (when he finally finally finds me) :-)
- being present
- the next fun/pleasurable/exhilarating/creative things I'll be doing
- growing evermore as a mother
- noticing beauty and goodness
- when I can next do those activities that make my heart and body sing!
- how I will meet the man who thrills me, whom I thrill, and who has a heart big enough to love my daughter completely.
That I hope you, dear man, who is here looking for love, have done your work.
Sometimes, on my way to my car, I run my shopping cart in the parking lot and hop on...
I have a very keen sense of smell, and appreciate people's natural, clean scent over chemical perfumes/colognes/deo.
I know how to use power tools. I have felled trees.
- you actually read my whole profile and your message to me reflects that.
