While I find it difficult to find the right words to accurately describe what I am seeking, I know it's something unconventional, yet committed and secure.
I'm not looking to "settle down" in the traditional sense of "buying a home, starting a family, and moving to the suburbs". Instead, I'm seeking a committed monogamous relationship with a man who wants to explore the world with me.
To me this means everything from traveling somewhere abroad at least once a year, to taking weekend trips to places we've never visited in the US, to a casual day hike near the city. Perhaps even living abroad one day.
I imagine I'll eventually want a family, but it's not on my mind at this moment. Even then, I assume that will be on the unconventional side.
If this idea suits you, I'd like to hear from you.
