I have learned the truth of the serenity prayer and believe that my personal serenity is a reflection of my emotional and spiritual well being. I believe that running my own life is enough trouble without attempting to run anyone else's life. I believe that each of us creates the reality we live in through the power we have each been given to choose (if nothing else to choose how I will respond to the things I cannot control).
As to what I'd like to find on OkCupid: I'm looking for a friend, companion, lover, and muse/collaborator. Someone who is able to communicate openly and honestly about how she is feeling. Someone to laugh with and to cry with. Someone to appreciate the beauty of life and all of God’s creation. Someone with whom I can experience intimacy in all its forms, from spiritual to intellectual and from emotional to physical. Someone I can trust and be committed to. Someone I can cherish as much as she deserves as a special and precious creation of a loving God and who will cherish our relationship.
Now, that's not too much to ask, is it? Of course it would be great to find such a person nearby, but I realize that could be a long-shot. If I met a prospective partner here and we really seemed to have a high potential to be that best match, I would be willing to travel to meet with them and explore the possibilities in person. If things continued to develop and we wanted to get serious, I would consider relocating if need be.
