Well to start off, here are some basics about me:
I grew up in Maine and came to Michigan for college. I now work at a non-profit that provides services to persons with developmental disabilities.
I like to run, play and listen to music, and learn.
In a woman I am looking for someone who is intelligent but who also likes to be goofy sometimes; someone who is caring; passionate; independent-minded. I'm looking for a woman who will be my equal, my partner, and who will enrich my experience of life as I will (hopefully!) hers. I do think it is important for a person to have his/her own identity, to have their own sense of self apart from being someone else's boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, etc. Respect for the other person, as a person, is very important. Keeping that in mind while one looks for, and gives and receives, love, is, I think, part of what will make that love special, and strong.
