I'm loyal and supportive in my relationships and even when I get busy always connect with friends and family. I try to break down our disengagement with each other in this culture; I talk with people in the grocery store line and say hello to strangers on the street. I also care about the community and world at large and act on it in terms of being part of social and economic justice movements.
I'm a good storyteller but would love to hear your stories too. Someone said recently it seems as if I'm amused and am amusing but in a thoughtful, observant way.
I don't expect us to have identical interests and I bring a lot of openness to this adventure of dating. At risk of sounding overly analytic about romance, I'm open to a few options: 1) I'm most interested in LTR. That means love, passion and dynamism between us but also all the complicated stuff - my kid, probably your kid, and who we are at this point in our lives. 2) A friendship/dating/sexual companionship type relationship without getting involved in each others family life. This is because, quite honestly, I have to spend a lot of energy on my kid and you might be a great person but not into that. "Friend with benefits" seems too trite a phrase and I'm not looking for a booty call. Really more a well-rounded companionship situation given the complexity of my parenting right now. Perhaps you have some kind of limitations as well where this might make sense.
