You've touched on an intellectual with passion galore, a tender
alpha male with a yen for laughter. My vocations are social justice-- both Republican smiting and being a successful(enviro /right livelihood) for-profit entrepreneur. My avocations are legion---sea kayaking, independent cinema, the Blues, off the beaten path travel etc.
A South African pop star had her security guards haul me on stage with her at The World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg and sang to the 5000 people there, "Who said white men can't dance"!
With a lover I have an affectionate & ultra-playful side that
manifests itself very noticeably. Committed to great emotional
communication(but not a compulsive processor). I've got some East Coast Jewish intensity (even though I grew up next to a farm)-not at all neurotic, I'm just more incisively analytical,
intellectually challenging(but non-contentious) & generally
inquisitive about almost everything in the universe than most
folks. At the same time, I'm frequently sardonically or
slapstickally funny in that it's in the genes kinda way. And
I've imbibed just enough New Age Kool Aid to love spiritually
communing with a lover by opening our hearts deeply to one another, spending languorous hours & hours in the delectable physical uniting of our bodies, taking occasional visits together to wilderness hot springs etc.
An ideal relationship (to me) has no secrets. Exquisitely direct
AND sensitive communication. Celebration of every day. Spiritual dedication to never taking each other for granted. Continuous growth of all kinds.
There's no substitute for deep intimacy.
It's the sine qua non for profound happiness.
I've learned to offer myself, without reserve, to the right person. I've also learned the importance of common values in discerning whether or not someone is that right person.
I am tender yet alpha, funny, and a bit brainiacal(does NOT rhyme
