I am perceptive, communicative, generous in spirit, warmhearted, loving, and affectionate. I have a strong constitution but a gentle spirit. I see the world more in shades of gray (and a spectrum of color) than everything as either black or white. I work hard, but in my personal life I have a mellow / laid-back personality. I am independent-minded but am not a contrarian. I have a good sense of humor (but then again everyone thinks that they have a good sense of humor) and appreciate other peoples' humor as well. I am not a controlling person. I think it is really important that each person in a relationship has the time and room to be with friends and do things outside of the relationship, in order for the relationship to grow and reach its potential. I do not think that I know everything, am right all of the time or have a need to be right all of the time.
I am socially and politically aware. I believe in social and economic justice. My political philosophy aligns with liberal to moderate Democrats.
I do not have any children and am not planning on having children of my own, but I am willing to develop a long-term relationship with a woman if she has a child/children.
Although it is not my first choice, if after getting to know someone in person for a while where we both "clicked" really well with each other, I would be willing to relocate for love and a promising long-term relationship. Even though I am a social person, in a dating context I am a bit shy in the early stages.
