I'm a classic introvert: quiet, introspective, cerebral. I form strong relationships and friendships with a select few. I don't enjoy group dynamics such as parties or gatherings where interactions are purely social. I can bluff my way in larger social settings but I am not energized by them. I am thoughtful, affectionate and generous. I love children and animals. I have a passion for understanding and wisdom, two qualities that have fallen by the wayside in this culture.
I have been separated for 2 1/2 years and I'm in the midst of an amicable divorce. I have become friends with my wife again, although I assure you that it will never be more than that! It feels disingenuous to label myself as single. I am open now to getting to know people and exploring possibilities. I think it's best to not commit to a new relationship before my divorce is final.
