As long as you are compassionate, want kids, are communicative, socially aware, self reflective, educated, ambitious, funny, and serious about a relationship, that's all I really want and need. Forget reading the rest, just write me :)
I highly value social intelligence - kindness/generosity, empathy, tenderness. I surround myself with good people, and I'm looking for a man who wants to join me in experiencing this kind of intimacy within a relationship.
I smile widely and laugh frequently - that's because life becomes a satire when the drama ends. My sense of humor is a cool mix of dry/clever/witty and physical farce (Danny Kaye, Harold Lloyd). I enjoy humor embedded in professional and private situations. I'm not perfect, and I don't expect you to be either. Actually, we're all works in progress... I enjoy seeing others improve, grow, and change.
I continued my education past undergrad because the areas of work I wanted to enter required more education. I have two master's degrees, Harvard and UMass Boston.
I love my job...I'm a therapist, which is actually my second career. I used to be an education research analyst but I realized I'm better at being a sounding board for people who are going through stuff than I am at number crunching.
As Jason Silva says, I'm looking for the urge to merge, for an intimate long lasting connection... I'm looking for a comfortable, compassionate, nice man who loves life, people, and humanity, and wants a partner to share life with. I want to have kids in my next long-term relationship.
You must watch this, I was so moved by it:
NOTE: just because I don't mention traveling, adventure, or whatever it is you like doesn't mean I don't partake. Ask me!
