After a three year partner type relationship has ended, I am seeking a new relationship with a woman. When a person comes along that I find interesting and I want to spend time with, I am energized to explore the possibilities.
Am 64 years old, considered attractive by those who know me, have a good sense of humor that often runs dry. Would love to cultivate a friendship and companionship. Beyond this will wait.
I am a spiritual person with a good set of moral principles as well as boundaries. My life experiences have taught me compassion, empathy, acceptance and understanding of people and situations entirely different than my own. I am left of the bubble so to speak in the way I live as well as in the politics I believe in.
My ideal match could be tall or small, have long or short hair. If she were to have red hair that would be a plus, however it certainly is not required. She is confident, projects a positive and accepting attitude towards others. She believes in the goodness of mankind, animals, and the earth and shows respect for all by her actions and words. She is liberal, unconventional, and does not settle for the status quo or buckle under to the expectations of "those people". She may still display some defiance and be a bit of a rebel. As a result of all of this, she will no doubt have sparkling inviting eyes, with an engaging and friendly smile.
The thing that I appreciate most in a partner is her ability to listen - without trying to change, fix or judge. Unconditional love. Respect. Trust. Intimacy. Kind Heart. Kind Person. Good Values. Good Morals. Reliable. Nurturing. Passionate.
I am grateful for the many lessons learned from so many people I have met, know and loved in my life journey so far. Am thankful, grateful for enlightenment shared with me by my Mysterious Creator, dear friends, precious earth creatures, water, trees, wild flowers, meadows, valleys, rolling hills, mountains; sunsets, sunrises, thunderstorms; Gracie the Cat's touch on my face in the morning; scent of citrus blossoms; Bora Bora; Paris.
I think chemistry is an important component of a healthy relationship. Have experienced an immediate attraction to a woman through eye contact and conversation before, however I know there is so much more to a healthy, happy and mutually satisfying relationship. Real intimacy (mind-body-soul) takes time to mature and blossom fully. I believe in melding of mind and soul intimacy before exploring the ultimate physical bond between man and woman.

Life lessons, a significant amount of work to understand myself, as well as what is "right", or "a fact", and that most times in life it really is about life experience, perception and "opinion".
There are very few things that I have encountered that are either "right" (is white) or "wrong" (is black), though there is a great spectrum of color in between. Life is just not that simple, and I normally see a multitude of possibilities in most situations. Makes my decision making difficult at times ;-)
