I don't care what your religious background is or how you were raised. Whether you're Christian, Buddhist, Pagan, agnostic or somewhere in between. As long as you're open and respectful of my views, and everyone else's on the planet, I will do my utmost to understand you and your views. I will also try to learn and grow from them as well. I care more about where you are going than where you've been. On that note: I am looking for someone that is tolerant of people from all walks of life. You don't necessarily have to agree with them, but be respectful and understanding that people of all ethnicities, sexual orientations and beliefs are deserving of their outlooks, desires and wishes and should be able to pursue their happiness unencumbered by fear or persecution. I am a very tolerant person. My spiritual beliefs run the gamut and I believe in a hodgepodge of different things.
I'm a Scorpio and a perfectionist. This might drive you crazy, it sure does me sometimes!
I am quick to trust, but not so quick to let someone into my heart.
One wonderful thing about the "heart", it's capacity to love and show compassion are boundless. Also along those lines, I have a huge soft-spot for the less fortunate and disabled and find it rewarding to give not only monetarily, but of my time if I am able.
I am mostly an introvert, mingling isn't something I do well. Don't confuse this as socially inept, for I am not. But it is very draining on me. 98% of the days of the month you will find me at home and happy to be there. My home is my sanctuary, my happy place and a reflection of who I am. You won't find Harley posters on the walls or dirty socks on the floor, and depending on how burnt-out I am from work, not likely to find any dust either. I like my home clean, it makes me happy. I use to collect antiques with my mother and they pretty much litter my home.
I'd rather eat glass than watch or even consider attending a sports event. If it's for your children, I'll go and take pictures.
I don't have cable TV. I have Netflix and watch mostly documentaries.
I am a podcast junkie, everything from story telling to tech.
I have spent a good many years of my life single. This has given me the opportunity to do a vast amount of introspection, to really understand myself and more importantly be okay with exactly who I am. Accepting what has transpired in my life and living as regret free as humanly possible has enabled me to not only be a better person, but be more open and accepting of the loving relationship I am seeking and deserving of.
I have been search for someone who is open, understanding, tolerant, enjoys holding hands and being physically close (not smothering mind you). Being an introvert I need my quiet time to relax and regenerate, this is paramount to my happiness. She will also have to have a love of all animals and their welfare. Being a "dog lover" isn't essential, but knowing I very much am and accepting my dog is my world isn't negotiable. You don't necessarily have to be a vegetarian but understand I am. I will be happy to cook you dinner, even better cook with you, but if you want a steak, you're on your own. ;0)
I can rewire your ceiling fan, probably fix your computer and help you with most of your house projects, but I'm not a pro at any of them. I very much learn by doing and most of the time find it rewarding. I am a camera addict (no cameras anonymous exists that I know of) and I often have one in tow. While I hate flying, I love getting out of town. I have found over the years that having something to look forward to, be that travel or something special with a loved one or my family of choice keeps me sane.
I also need someone willing to communicate. We all have fears, hopes, dreams and desires, lets talk about them in a loving and honest way to grow together and become better human beings. We all have scars and that's understandable. As long as you recognize them as learning experiences and grow from them you are moving forward. Let's move forward together...
I hope that gives you a little better insight as to what makes me "tick". I am a work in progress and the above is subject to change without notice, tax, tags and license are extra. Please consult your owners manual and read the fine print of the legal obligation before making any hasty decisions. I make no promises and there is no warranty either in writing or implied. Yes, I have a twisted sense of humor too...
Be good to yourself, if you don't...who the h** will?
I am honest, thoughtful, and VERY loyal.
