Here's some truth about me: I like adventures. Not just crazy stunts like climbing the largest pyramid in Egypt at night—although I’ve done that. But also just getting lost on a Sunday drive and finding some out-of-the-way town that has a cool used bookstore and a café where someone plays blues guitar.
What else? Right-handed. Dogs love me. I can only talk about the end of the Nationals' season under hypnosis.
In a 600-person college Intro to Psych class, we were told to break into groups according to our Myers-Briggs designations. Mine was INFP (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving). I stood alone. This seemed to tell me all I needed to know about myself.
Due to a mid-career crisis, I started acting professionally and am now lucky to journey fairly successfully through two very different worlds: theater and journalism. I like storytelling as a form of self-expression, but I also like being around people who live out loud.
I am looking for someone smart, who appreciates learning in all its forms, someone witty and a little bold, curious enough to explore the essential questions but silly enough to laugh at them too. I am looking for someone with whom I share a fundamental chemistry and who is interested in growth and is ready to grow together with someone else.
You're someone who knows yourself. It’s good to have your shit together, but probably more important to have your shit together about the ways you don’t have your shit together. It's helpful not to have a "Thou Shalt Not" list longer than the average phonebook (Hey,even the Bible stopped at 10). Mindfulness, acceptance and compassion have grown in importance for me over time. You stand up for yourself, but don't have to fight every battle. I also like outside-the-box thinkers who can make connections among disparate fields (music and philosophy, meditation and psychology, peanut butter and chocolate.)
Other things I like: Straightforwardness (not being passive-aggressive), sensuality, affection for board games, ability to make me laugh. And kissing. Lots of kissing.
