I'm also definitely relationship oriented (I've been partnered most of my adult life). Having said that, I'm open to all levels of connection with good guys -- including friendship.
Passionate about film, theater, music, the performing arts. Very family oriented. I love kids and I'm open to meeting a guy who's a parent, but this is not a deal breaker either way. Love going out, but cuddling up & watching a DVD at home can be just as great.
My ideal match is someone who: is not afraid to show affection; loves to kiss and cuddle; who's sensitive to the needs and feelings of others and behaves accordingly; is not afraid of honesty and communication; is emotionally available and romantic; who loves old movies and independent films; is family oriented; who understands that relationships have their ups and downs, and won't "cut and run" once the first blip appears on the radar screen.
Having said that, I don't go walking around with a "laundry list" of qualities that I check off when I meet someone. I think the most important commonality between two people is a shared sense of values. I also recognize that nobody's perfect - and that ultimately we grow to care about others despite our flaws and imperfections; after all, they are part of our humanity.
I also believe in always treating myself & others with respect, and am only interested in guys who feel the same. This means if you’re self-absorbed, take drugs not prescribed by a physician, or practice unsafe sex, we are not a match.
If you think we might have a connection, please drop me a line and let’s chat. Looking forward to hearing from you.
