My self-summary
I am a person who cares about the heart and decency of others.

I am outgoing, funny, loquacious and enjoy dialog beyond surface subjects. As one who has traveled the world, I have leaned to compensate well for extreme shyness that no one would guess.
A unique character: genuinely open to enjoy the sharing of life experiences, with a smile and a hearty laugh...
This is important.

Being intuitive, psychologically aware, artistic, creative, intelligent, imaginative, curious and still acts like a kid…
I hope for one who shares these attributes.

The enjoyment and appreciation of aesthetics: artistic, literary, musical, cultural and environmental... would make for a solid, mutual foundation for friendship. A political, social liberal who stands for their beliefs, is desirable. Success is not measured in money, but in simple pleasures shared. A love of animals, especially dogs, is an absolute plus... as is an individual who has a way with people, who enjoys life stories, relates well, collaborates, is naturally outgoing; a master of his own pursuits; his quiet time: and sharing both. A passionate adventurer; a generous spirit:
open to spontaneous, mutual discovery worldwide: just as easily as with a like-minded, introspective partner…
This would be a fit for me.

Innate capacities of compassion, respect, empathy and kindness
will sing to my soul.
