Let me start by saying I am not your average meat and potatoes, beer drinking kind of guy. No disrespect intended, but if that defines a "real man" to you, we probably won't be a match. I choose to live a healthy lifestyle and I am more interested in "knowing thy Self". I do not consider myself superior or inferior to anyone, I just choose the road less traveled. This Alan Watts video to gives a glimpse of what I'm drawn to spiritually......
I strive to live from a place of connecting with the mystery of life and being present in each moment to the best of my ability. This means I smile a lot and find laughter intoxicating. If we meet you will get a sense of this. I am spiritual more than religious (but honor truth in all its forms). I love the Sufi expression "enlightenment means lighten up". I honor diversity, am tolerant of others, strive to be non-judgmental and look for the good in every situation. I view humility as an asset and strive to treat all people with dignity and respect. I'm an active, athletic, educated, compassionate, passionate, and emotionally present man. I enjoy cycling, working out, skiing, hiking, yoga, most sports, live music, sporting events, going out for dinner and being social. I also enjoy walks, quiet moments and intimate conversations connecting with the special person in my life. I drink green drinks in the morning (yes greens like kale, collards, etc.......but I do add fruit and berries to make it palatable, lol). I have been vegan (really more nutritarian) for over a year, but I have leaned toward eating lots of fruits and vegetables for many years. I don't expect someone in my life be vegan, but I do desire being with someone that lives a healthy lifestyle.
A good match for me is someone who has depth from life experiences, looks for the gift in the "seemingly bad" and still possesses a lighthearted and playful way of being in the world. Although physical attraction is important (I am definitely no choir boy), I need to feel connected to a women spiritually and emotionally for a long term relationship to develop. It's important that we have shared interests (hopefully many), individual interests and opportunities to learn and enjoy new experiences together. Someone who understands we are whole within ourselves but also believes that sharing the journey makes it that much more amazing. When there is a connection I am affectionate, playful, sensual, and very loving. I know timing is everything and I'm not into forcing things, but if it presents itself, I am ready for something more meaningful to unfold. If not, meeting and enjoying ourselves would be great too.
