I am adventurous, free-spirited and open-minded.
If it sounds fun I am likely to try it as long as it does not hurt anyone. Probably twice. I don't have any unusual appetites but I have tried some things that might shock others.
I am a man with a pat. Yes, we all have pasts, but some folks seem to have a hard time getting past mine. If you are at all judgmental or disapprove of others who make life choices different than yours, I'm not a good fit for you.
(No, I haven't been to prison. Not that kind of a past.)
I am conservative financially because my income is highly variable. Therefore, I'm not likely to whisk you off to Paris for lunch on a whim. But I'm a mean cook and can treat you to a fantastic meal right at home, and even in the leanest of years I provide for myself and my own needs, so I'm not a burden on anyone.
To put is succinctly, I've matured enough to not care at all what other people think of what I do, what I think, or what I say. While I don't do what I do to offend or shock anyone, if anyone is offended or shocked, well, that's just too bad. I honestly just don't care. I wish you well.
That should filter out most of those for whom I'm a really bad fit... If you're still reading:
I like to be kind to everyone and generous to those who need it.
I am a very present, empathetic listener (and always working at getting better.)
I am an excellent communicator: I listen well, and I will tell you what I'm feeling and thinking whether I think you want to hear it or not. If I think you don't want to hear it, I will be as kind, but as clear, as possible. In other words, what you see or hear is what you get.
I do what I say I'm going to do.
I am passionate about life, about people that I'm in relationship with, and about growing spiritually and intellectually.
My favorite passions outside of relationships are sailing and dogs. I have a Border Collie who loves sailing, and I would be in heaven sailing off into the sunset with her.
I love to laugh and I love to see the humor in everyday life.
If you're still with me, we could be an interesting match. If you want to know more, you'll have to go through my questions and contact me... :-)
