I work as a clinical psychologist and tend to do best with those who are evolved in the sense that they have some psychological sophistication, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence. Usually this equates to individuals drawn to the healing professions and/or the arts. I like to see evidence of an active creative force that's forever evolving.
Health is a major value of mine - mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Looking for a man who knows how to really nurture and take care of himself.
Even before someone communicates verbally about who they are and what they represent, I look and listen for what their body tells me is true for them. Someone who exudes strength and confidence shows up in the world as someone vital, alive, and perhaps someone I would like to know better.
Skills in the interpersonal realm are also important to me. I want to find someone who doesn't shy away from difficult conversations and takes interpersonal risks in order to increase the quality of the exchange.
