company of an GOOD man--an exquisite soul--
and--in one of my best friends--the discovery of one of the great loves of my life--
with whom to share a long-term relationship of substance
(fyi, if you wonder why i answered "other" for Religion in the Details section, i subscribe to a higher power centered ethical humanism. and in the past have belonged to the Unitarian-Universalist community; it is a principle-based non-credal faith that welcomes people of all faiths.)
so much of day-to-day functions of life involve mundane activities--visiting the supermarket, doing the laundry, cleaning the house, etc. i consider the sharing of these tasks the little intimacies... as much as the fancy moments. watching a game with beer and pizza. hiking and finding a little secluded place for a nude shoot. building a snow fort (if we ever getting decent packing snow). digging in the garden. getting chased and tackled because you are trying to get me to give you the better trowel. . all of this with kisses and laughter.
i also enjoy sharing the breadth and depth of ideas, seeking appreciation of life, people, the world. if you are a tender, earnest, and courageous communicator, and a blend of perception, emotion, and soul, you may be the one for me. :)
i do not seek a male version of a carbon-copy of me. who knows what combination of mind-body-spirit complements mine? let us discover this together.
i feel very good about my physique--a regular at the gym--and maintain a healthful diet. my appearance is stylishly expressive, proving my panache in dolling up. and i pride myself on being a second-hand store fashionista!
i value skilled honest communication and sensitivity and the ability to adapt as we grow amid experiences. i refuse to bicker in times of conflict or adversity. i prefer to navigate difficulty with tenderness. i treat gently your vulnerabilities in order to preserve our feeling at ease with one another and request gentleness likewise. you challenge me to be my finer self and welcome to be so challenged. ultimately, we are and see each other as allies.
i support your aspirations and request your support of mine. i have a passion for being part of something important--whether it be my livelihood or my avocational pursuits--and find the same attractive in a man. my journey is a process of evolution. you are on a similar mindful journey.
i adore animals as much as friends and loved ones, and even experience a mindful sorrow in eating them... no, not friends and loved ones... animals!
we sit and talk, we cook, we walk on trails, we work on projects independently but nearby, we travel, we express affection, we cry and comfort, we problem-solve, we go out to dine and to see movies or performances, we learn, we dance, we laugh... as friends and partners. we discover a romantic relationship with ever-evolving promise, we can decide how we wish to continue our lives together.
