Yes we have to match on some important fundamental issues. After that it comes down to if we share a truly open/honest connection and whether we have chemistry. Ultimately, I don’t care if you don’t want to go to the Opera with me. I’ll go; you clean the house and give me a massage when I get home. Just kidding! Well not about the massage. Seriously, who cares if I go to the Opera and you go do whatever? As long as we are the only ones we want to come back to. What’s important is that there isn’t a doubt as to whether we are honest and honor one another and that we have a genuine, passionate desire for one another.
Being in love, having an intensely intimate connection, and being independent are not mutually exclusive. Being independent isn’t so much the freedom to be apart, it’s keeping a commitment to each other to take care of ourselves, so that we can always stand alone or stand for each other when needed. It gives each person the freedom to love and share their life for no other reason than they rock your world:)
You can have lots of shared interests and spend a lot of time together, but if you are not attracted to each other, it doesn’t work. So rather than drone on about what I like and like to do I’ll tell you the type of person I’ll ditch my girlfriends for and cross a crowded room to talk to. Attractive (I know, very subjective) and takes good care of himself. Intelligent, funny, interesting, open, curious, genuine, laughs easily, confident, kind, humble enough, and happy to be in my company and his own. He keeps looking at me, and I only know this because I can’t stop looking at him either. Makes an effort to spend time with me and when together, he is easy to talk to, playful, genuine, direct but tactful, and dosesn't mind letting me know in a variety of ways that he is totally into me! He has no problem telling me I have beautiful eyes or that I have a big gob of spinach in my teeth – and we both laugh at it!
I enjoy too much to list, pretty much anything if the company is good. And I enjoy trying new things. I'm athletic, but I'm still a girl, i.e. I've climbed Mt Kilimanjaro without bathing, clean clothes, or a bathroom for 13 days, but my love of shoes gives me away as a girly girl occasionally. I’m emotionally mature, but still feel and act like a kid plenty enough to make life fun. I enjoy physical activities and hardly ever get left behind at any sport or activity. My friends are cool, but mostly married and not great for introductions! Hoping to find someone to enjoy all the great things in the pnw and hopefully more.
