I'm on this web site to see if I can find someone that has a mutual connection with me leading to my goal of a meaningful relationship. I'm not here to use this site for chatting. I see it only as a tool. If you are serious about meeting up in person after only a very few emails then please message me. I'd love to hear from you!
I am engaging, energetic and enthusiastic about life (most of the time).
I approach life from a position of wonderment and adventure. I yearn for greater experiences that allow me to connect with people, places, feelings, and ideas. What I'm missing is the presence of a partner to share this with.
I'm driven to get to the heart/truth of the matter, to fully understand it and my part in it even when it’s painful. I find pretence and subtext tiresome. I'm energized and love it when someone is open minded and emotionally brave and I strive to continue advancing in these areas. I work at being aware of my own issues so that I can chose to let them go and be fully present. Sometimes I’m excellent at it and sometimes I need some help. Either way I'm ready to hear respectful feedback and have developed the ability to laugh at my imperfections.
I am one of the bravest people I know. Not bungie jumping brave but the kind of brave that is wiling to look at how and why I resist. The kind of brave that is about making connection. All of this is based on the fact that life is short and if I'm to embrace my creative expression of self, grow, and contribute to my community then I'll need to move past these limitation.
I am an eternal seeker, looking for the deeper meaning within each moment.
I need someone who is emotionally open and willing and able to meet me. If you are emotionally guarded or defended please pass me by.
My two most favorite quotes:
I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped.
Fritz Perls, 1969
There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
I am present, available, and thoughtful
A NOTE ABOUT INTERNET DATING
Internet dating is backwards unlike life. In the latter you find a hint of something and then learn more about it by digging and exposure. In internet dating all the information is given to you up front leaving less to explore. It's more like internet shopping where you want to know as much as possible about a product which inevitable leads to disappointment in this case when you see aspects of a person that aren't as appealing. In real life these disappointments are usually exposed gradually and exist in contrast to that excitement of the newness of a situation.
The purpose of this note is to encourage any readers who see, or sense a connection with certain aspects of my profile to meet up with me and see how we click while "bracketing off" or holding the less appealing aspects of my personality lightly. After all no one person is perfect for any of us and I believe, in my case that my positive traits way outweigh any less appealing ones.
