I now have more time and energy to share.
I am not in any hurry for relationship, so if you are, please don't misunderstand my laid back style, and consider someone who might be more suitable for you. I am excited about meeting You, though !!!
I wish to address my profile photo, as many have opinions about it, and rightly so. This part sounds business-like, and is intended. My aim is to be neutral - not demanding:
As a working professional, I must insist on ethical respect not only for my own personal life, but more importantly not wishing to risk the objectivity that one's professional relationships depend on, esp. with my patients, via what they might learn about me, as in "too much information" here.
Objectivity is key in my field. Therefore - no public domain photos of me. I do apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to satisfy one's natural curiosity. I am more than happy to send photos via email.
This is my professional and personal choice; to compromise professional relationships for my own personal gain is ethically not an option.
. . I've weathered the assumptions of others before - so be it.
I have nothing to hide - I am very open in person. I have also met many wonderful, intelligent and understanding people here. Okay - That's it !! :D
I live alone, and I choose to be romantically involved with only one person at a time, and w/ substantial space between. You know what I mean . . .
I am financially independent and responsible. . . neither wealthy nor destitute.
