One of the things I've come to appreciate most is the company of a great girl, and being in an intimate relationship. I've had a few great loves, but I can see now that, even at my best, I missed out on a deeper level of awareness - of being "present". I am a generous, very affectionate, passionate lover...psychically in-tune with my partner, always learning her. An unrivaled good gift-giver. I love travel and feel at home anywhere on earth. I always seek out the finest things in life, even if it means being a little irresponsible. I am a designer, but i am creative by nature: I value my writing, and I feel energized by conversation. I can take the smallest kernel and turn it into an adventure. And most of all, i know now that there is always room to grow - always a deeper level of intimacy, pleasure, fun, and lucidity.
Being in a relationship is like waking up out of dreams within dreams. Each time you allow yourself to get a little closer, another layer of dreaming peels back., and things come into more focus. Its a matter of allowing yourself to realize how rare and special it is to have someone that feels what you feel. Sometimes this all comes naturally, but sometimes its important to take a breath and recognize "holy shit...Im in love, and I am loved back". Its just something that I've realized, and want to keep in mind for now on. An its not true of every relationship. just the enduring ones.
I am tall, lean but muscular, with a calm, easy-going demeanor. I have great hands and a great sense of touch. I have a sharp eye that takes the most minute detail and the widest view in at the same time, which can make me seem a little "dreamy". I am not a typical guy. I feel like I’m the opposite of the norm: outwardly masculine, inwardly gentle. maybe I was built for a different time, I don't know. But I am a man who is very comfortable being a man. I enjoy it. I've discovered many male proclivities that I thought were stereotypes, but are actually quite fun - like scotch, and machines going really fast.
Some things about me are different day to day: at times I will be full of energy and spontaneity - ready to explode out of the city. Other days I am languid, slow, relaxed, maybe even a little vulnerable - the kind of day where I want to recognize what I have: read my books, listen to my records, make a simple meal, give my voice a rest, do more listening than talking. But I always look for the humor in things.
Lastly - I don't believe in the adage that a person must know and love themselves fully before they can love. i believe that we are meant to couple, and that as couples we can really learn about ourselves - amplify our strengths, and rid ourselves of flaws. We can only get so far alone.
