Gail Sheehy wrote the book "Passages" and I am easing into my next passage of life, a passage where "I" becomes "we". In the past, I worked too hard, I was always on the go, burning the candle at both ends. Too many different activities pulling on my time. I'm looking for a partner where we live in the now by stopping to smell the roses, to savor a sunset, and enjoy each moment we create. Let's begin a new passage together.....
Since I've been single and independent most of my life, it’s important to me to find a partner who is stronger than I am. A man whose opinion I trust and respect. I may not always agree with you but I want you to be intelligent enough to justify your stance and maybe even convince me your opinion has more merit than mine. The weak willed or benevolent dictators need not apply.
I am passionate and intense but can also be silly and playful. I hope you are someone who knows when it’s time to be serious but can appreciate that most of our time together should be about fun, laughter, joy and silliness.
I love surprises and I hope you do too. Whether it is flowers from you for no occasion or whether it’s a suggestive note I've placed in your pocket for you to find later in the day or PDAs when least expected. I love to kiss and everything it leads to. I want our physical connection to be strong.
I'm looking to slow down and be with a man to have fun and add more enjoyment to life. I've traveled extensively and would like a man who is adventurous and enjoys traveling as well. However that doesn't include tents/camping, these bones like a nice comfortable bed at night.
I enjoy going to concerts, the movies, comedy clubs, theme parks, museums-- Just went to "The Tree" concert--I'll try any form of entertainment at least once, but as with The Tree, I don't always need to do something a second time.
I'm intelligent and I enjoy intelligent conversation about ideas, philosophy, politics and religion. While I can agree to disagree about some things, I want a man who shares my basic values and morals about religion and politics. I get along with an atheist better than a born-again, and with a liberal than anybody even close to being a Republican. I'm agnostic and a flaming liberal--many might even call me a socialist.
While I've always been self-employed and been responsible for my life, I don't believe that everything should be about making a profit.
I’m a hopeless optimist. Life has handed me some curve balls but I've learned how to swerve. A friend once said that when **** happens, I’m the one looking for the pony.
I am open to relocating. The desert is still the gay nineties ---all the single available men are either gay or 90. What I think would be ideal is to keep my desert house as a second home to get away to for long weekends. So I'm not averse to a long distance situation in the beginning--I can work with that until and if we decide we are a match.
