I got kindness; I got rhythm,
I got security, who could ask for anything more?
I'm empathic, atheletic,
fun and passionate; who could ask for anything more?
higher purpose, mission driven
always giving with adventure;
Tooooooo' good, to be true?
Then just Let me prove it to you.
[end of tune; and thanks for enduring that.]
So, If you write me, I will tell you two very good ways you can verify me. My two photos, btw, are about one year oldexcept the firsst one (with my heroines, the code pink women, which is 4-5 yrs old, but at least expresses my soul, my values.
BONUS: I also enjoy matchmaking and promise to intro you to two guys who fit several of your criteria if we are not a fit after our first meeting, assuming you are willing to go dancing or business mixers once or twice
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, author of the Little Prince)
"The difference between a good marriage (OR COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP) & 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).
This one is especially important to me and best explains why i'm single
I was married; divorced 12 years ago. I've raised other women's kids (they--the women and their kids are refs) and I like most kids.
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 above).
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 American women.
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.
FYI, I am into NVC-- nonviolent communications, 5 languages of love, Gottman's 7 Principles, etc.
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
