I love to read, mostly mysteries, and almost always keep a book nearby.
I am an omnivore who really likes to cook and is pretty good at it. I tend to lean toward spicy dishes and clean as I go. I appreciate help (or helping), conversation, or being left alone when I am cooking. In this area I am comfortable adapting to the wishes of my partner (which are even allowed to change from day to day ... or meal to meal).
I like people and enjoy socializing, but I am also very comfortable with and by myself. I am a work in progress, but progressing satisfactorily.
I enjoy traveling and have fortunately been able to do so during my life. I am looking forward to doing more, but not obsessed with a need to do so. I am also quite happy being a homebody and occasionally doing day-trips locally.
I like playing almost any card game (but probably do not have the seriousness to devote much time to bridge).
I laugh easily and readily, especially at myself. This existence is rife with humor, presenting endless opportunities to giggle. The glass is always half full. If you don't think so, try holding it over your head and turning it upside down. How were you affected by the empty part?
I do not practice a specific religion, but am quite spiritual. I believe I am here for a reason, that there are no accidents. I do not expect everyone to believe as I do, but it is important to believe in something. I admire those who do so and who live their beliefs.
I am looking for someone who resonates with my comments above. Agreement is not necessary, but understanding and accepting is very important. I am not into emotional games or making notches on my bedpost. Relationships define themselves as they develop. I am a giving, caring and romantic person. I am not clingy, prone to jealousy, or needy. I do not need anyone to complete me, but I do want someone to share experiences with me.
