Most people seek comfort and security and, in America, this comes in pretty much two flavors - suburban or countryside. I am looking for someone different who, like myself, walks a different path. This path requires that someone be (in various degrees) independent, forceful, brilliant, and adventurous. These four characteristics are what I strive to be myself and look for in a potential partner.
Independent – Seeking your path, not following one already developed by others. Able to have your own thoughts and ideas, not just following the latest media stream du jour. Creating a world where you are not dependent on others, especially financially, so you can relate to others as an equal. I'm big on equality - it just seems fair. .
Forceful – Able to stand up to others, to be a presence, not be weak, meek, feeble, or shy. Not brash or rude, but to have a strength of character. Be a leader when it is necessary. Be calm under stress. Confident.
Brilliant – Knowledgeable about a variety of topics, with actual facts, figures, dates or proper nomenclature. Not an expert, except perhaps in your profession, but a good working lay knowledge of other topics outside of your field. Well-versed in either science or culture or both. Not simply repeating the thoughts and ideas of others but also forming your own opinions.
Adventurous – Not simply seeking a life of comfort and security. Adventure is everyday, not just for vacations. It is taking you out of your comfort zone and eagerly confronting adversity since you would enjoy testing your limits. Curiosity being the main source of the desire for adventure since you learn new things about the world as well as new things about yourself.
If you are such a person, even if you are not interested in me romantically, I would love to get to know you.
