"Somebody" by Depeche Mode describes a closer bond of two people sharing their joys AND sorrows together. I seek someone whose loyalty is not dependent on the money, joyful times, and harmony. Trouble comes -- accidents, arguments, unemployment, painful sacrifice for nobler pursuits. Disneyland marriage is not a real commitment; are you hardy enough for a real commitment?
I am non-materialist; family and God mean more to me. I buy cheap when it does not matter so that I can splurge on quality when it does matter. I try to eat healthy, natural foods and avoid artificial foods, flavors, scents, and toxic cleaners.
I have met too many diverse people to have much of an ego; I am more self-effacing. I am dressy and presentable when I need to be, but not an all-out type of guy. I buy flowers often for no other reason than they smell good and to indicate I love you.
I am confident, considerate, patient, deliberate, tolerant, and thrifty. I reflect, plan, and minimize my earth-print. For my part, I listen well, assuming that you communicate. I am proud of my policy of not divining what others are thinking. Rather than call it dependency, I believe that the individual strengths/roles of your soul-mate are valuable, without diminishing either partner.
