I also am a lover of music and theater. I play an instrument (yes, I’m proud to say that I was and still am a band nerd) and enjoy attending events whenever time allows. Whether it is Broadway-style shows, rock concerts, the symphony, local theater, or marching band competitions, there’s not much music-wise that I don’t enjoy. Well, rap, but that doesn’t really count as music, at least not to me.
Those who know me say that I am very giving of my time, almost to a fault. I guess that’s a polite way of them telling me I have a hard time saying no. There’s probably a bit of truth to that. I have been volunteered for many things in the not too distant past. Chair a committee. Organize a fundraiser. I was even foreman of the last jury I served on. It’s very satisfying to me to be able to contribute, even in a small way, and to be able to impact many lives in a positive way.
There are a few truisms about life that I have recently discovered. It brings new adventures to be conquered every day. You can enjoy almost anything you do, as long as you are with the right person. It’s easier to be happy with someone else if you’re happy with yourself first. Life is too short to take everything seriously. A healthy life means smiling and laughing daily. Inner beauty trumps outer beauty every single time. And, finally, if you don’t make time for yourself or for your relationship, then no one will.
So what am I looking for in a potential match? Eventually I’m looking for the spark to light my fire. A mutual attraction. Someone with whom I can share common interests as well as develop new ones. No games. No drama. That special woman who is as comfortable in sweats cuddled in front of the television with the lights low as she would be at the theater or out for a nice dinner. I know that won't be immediate, but I look forward to the opportunity to converse, meet, go slow, and see where things are taken.
