About me, I am 44, never been married, no kids. No particular aversion to either, but as I alluded in the previous paragraph, things just haven't worked out for me in that way. I’ve been fortunate enough to have known some lovely women and to have been in some fulfilling relationships. But life being what it is, each of them concluded for one reason or another. In many instances it was due to timing and where each of us was in our respective lives. And in some cases, mistakes were made, sometimes by me and sometimes by her. None of us are infallible, which is something that I’ve grown to understand over the years. So I carry the scar tissue of loves lost and lessons learned in the crucible of circumstance. But I would have it no other way, as I am in a great place in my life, and would not have arrived here were it not for the multitude of experiences, good and bad, I’ve had along the way.
While on the surface I appear to to be a linear thinker, and operate in that realm professionally, I have the colorful soul of a creative. Indeed, I love art, and I appreciate artists because I’m not one and am fascinated by what they are able to create from nothing more than an idea or concept. If you truly appreciate beautiful and passionate art- in all of its vibrant colors and varietal of textures- then you already have much more insight into who I am than these few paragraphs will provide.
As for the person I would like to meet… I work very hard in a structured and conservative profession that I love, but it offers no outlet for creativity or artistic endeavor. So, because of my affinity for such things, I tend to gravitate towards women who work in the arts or other professions that make allowances for self expression. Of course, if you are like me and work in the buttoned down world but enjoy playing in the other, I feel that, too. Maybe you have an inner hippie chick that pulls at your heart strings and yearns to be free the moment you leave the office; I understand.
I am a positive person, a natural optimist, and desire the same in a partner. Also, if you are passionate, assertive, and independent...... Well, I've learned to appreciate that these are three of the most alluring qualities any woman can possess. And an axiom comes to mind here- Confidence is sexy; knowing you are sexy is even sexier....
Lastly, a sense of humor is a must, with the ability to laugh at the mundane, as well as find the hilarity in the complex. And if you have a dry sense of humor similar to mine, I can already tell you that our first date will lead to at least one more.
