So here's the deal: I'm all the usual adjectivos (hablo Espanol tambien) all the guys say they are. But to prove it, you can google me (happy to give you my name once we establish enough common values) and even talk to an ex gf or two, if and when i trust and like you enough, and I can do the same.
What really makes me different, I think (and a big reason I suspect I am single, is my dedication to creating a Great, not just good marriage or committed relationship (see Tolstoy quote below).
I also love to dance (WCS, ECS, and salsa), sing (show tunes, acapella, etc), hike, and of course stay fit. So being intensely alive is probably another thing that scares away most Americans.
I run almost daily. With permission, I am very physically affectionate, romantic. And never any drama, unless we're playing improv games,which i love. (I even wrote a book of many original, free, and easy to do improv, as well as mental and physical games.)
My main passion in life has always been to make our world better--tikkun olam-- to fight for justice against injustice for ordinary people, especially the poor --to do the greatest good for the greatest number, while having fun too. So I'm proud to say I'm an activist; feminist and playful too.
I consider "organizing" the highest art form, because it does the most good. So hope you don't mind activist social venture entrepreneur types (who are also romantic and can make the relationship a priority).
I love cooking great meals too, am great with kids (that above mentioned book was hugely popular with single moms), offer a few other nice surprises women love. In fact, more than one of my ex gfs have said i'd make a great wife.
MAKING RELATIONSHIPS WORK: And I now know a thing or two (due to my work/my startup passion, as well as mistakes i made when i married and with a former gf) about how to nurture and grow love, into NVC--ie [nonviolent communications], 5 languages of love, Gottman's 7 Principles, etc.
OTHER PASSIONS besides dancing]] and singing and fighting [injustice: travel to Madagascar or best diving scuba locations, seeing Mountain Gorrillas, and also canoeing during peak fall colors, bookstore coffee shops, poetry, massaging …Gaga for nature; being of service to those most in need; will try anything twice--adventurous
ECONOMICS: I am economically stable, own own home Grass Valley on year-round stream; but keep searching if you are looking for a guy to wine and dine you
VALUES express by some FAVORITE QUOTES that communicate my values:
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage" (Anais Nin).
"Life is a daring adventure, or it's nothing at all." (Helen Keller)
"Love consists more in looking together in the same direction than looking each other in the eye" (St.Exupery)
"The difference between a good marriage & a great one is that in the latter each mate gives the other the same as in a good marriage, but in addition, each helps the other bring more truth, justice, &/or courage into the world.” (Tolstoy /GK) Lotsa points if you resonate with this one.
I've been married; divorced 15 years ago. I've raised other women's kids (they--the women and their kids are refs) and I like most kids.
