Seeking someone who lives in NYC, not a long-distance thing. I want someone who is first and foremost kind, gentle, honest, and good-hearted. All ethnicities and body types welcome. I am a kind person, don't like to fight, and when I do encounter conflict, I try to stay calm and talk it out honestly. Honesty is very, very important to me, as well as the ability to identify, understand, and talk about your needs and emotions. If people have taken advantage of your kindness and gentleness in the past, we may be a good match. I have a weakness for shy, sweet, geeky guys, especially programmers. I also seek a person who loves life and at least some of the things I enjoy. It's also ok if you're not a Buddhist. I prefer an atheist or agnostic, but if you are religious we may still be able to work it out.
One thing should be clear. For right now I would like to take it slow, but in the long term, I'm looking for a life partner. I do not want to move super fast into that. I no longer think you can tell right away who would be a good fit. So I would see a reasonable timeline as moving in together in 2 or 3 years. So lots of time dating - and dating multiple people - and getting to know each other. Monogamy....if it happens, would be sometime in the future... I have been in different relationships that were monogamous, completely open, and swinging (adventures together). I am open to discussing any possibilities. But definitely looking to have and be a primary partner.
