12/13/14: 13 years of looking for that one who has healthy impatience, the look I need to recognize, who embraces the sentiments expressed in this profile (and has the self-confidence, heart and soul to execute). As each precious day passes, what an incredible loss not having her ("you") in my life. If you get it, reply invited; if it makes sense, the look and the words, I'll respond. It's a priority for me, but unwilling "to settle"; and you?
Not looking for, nor interested in a mere warm body nor a mere dinner date; am looking for one to adore, to kiss on a park bench all afternoon, a friend who's totally open who I can trust and support. I enjoy the exchange of unsolicited hugs, glances, soulful kisses, and text messages in the early morning hour. I honor the verbal and written word, appreciate/honor the pledge of love, and embrace lessons of my past. I make no apology for wearing my heart on my sleeve. I want someone I can’t take my eyes off; I want to admire how her clothes fit, how her hand feels in mine, how her neck has a fragrance that beckons, how I see in her expression that she understands my admiration and is appreciative.
You honor your heart and your expressions of love, you long for the opportunity to have someone to love you, to be honest with you; when the need arises, to hold you, and every now and then, to be told you have a really nice (fill in the part!). You can envision a simple park bench as being the center of our world, you will amuse me by wearing that favorite dress I’ve always admired. You chuckle at the power you seem to have over me as you can’t help but notice my awe and admiration, but you accept it and use it to strengthen our relationship; yes, you know I’m respectful of your mind, your values, your past accomplishments and your ability to have survived your disappointments, you also are well aware your mere presence fills my mind and soul with excitement to touch you, to care for you. You have the strength and sensitivity and perspective when I’m open with you, to care for my heart and soul; you have the courage to expose yourself to me, to trust me with what you struggle with.
I do not live by what others tell me to expect from a relationship, I’ve taken the silence of time to understand what I want.
Hungry for you to make my words come alive other than in the fantasy of your mind; you have healthy impatience, and if you live a distance away, you realize that I'm not interested in a long distance relationship, but I'm not dismissive of you purely because of distance, so be careful what you wish for! You want something simple, someone to kick the leaves with, someone you know adores you, someone you can trust, someone you can dance with in the silence of time. And you want it yesterday. That's all I want. I do projects around Washington DC and San Francisco, so at any time you may find me in either place, or in Las Vegas, where I "rest" in between; but if I found you, I'd be there with you.
The stats: BA in Pol Science, BA in Speech & Dramatic Art, Masters in Journalism, JD Law, PhD Education; 40 years as an attorney (how is that possible?), divorced since 2001, miss having that favorite dress to see...
