I consider myself to be intelligent, affectionate, funny, kind, and forgiving, and I appreciate all of those qualities in a woman, too. I am generally attracted to outgoing, energetic, enthusiastic women.
There are certain things about the single life that I enjoy. For example, having a limited number of pillows on the bed, all of which are fully functional as head-cushioning devices sans embroidery, tassels, or ruffles suits me just fine. The throw pillows have all been thrown.
On the other hand, having a wonderful woman in my life would be pretty great, too. I miss curling up next to someone on the couch at the end of a long day, laughing at Modern Family together, or just talking while I massage her neck. The day to day joy of being with a person who I can't wait to see, and she me.
