I believe I have compassion and empathy plus I know how to both listen and talk. Both! I do some introspection and try to address my own issues when I see them. I even try to admit my mistakes, not take myself too seriously and laugh at myself when I do ridiculous things. Generally, I love to laugh.
I'm engaged in expanding myself - showing up and seeing what happens. I like being introduced to things others enjoy. I'm interested in how you came to be who you are and what inspires you. I am up for anything. I like people, am non-judgmental and grateful for what I have. I am mindful - paying attention, listening and thinking. I am not invested in being right or hanging on to anger. I forgive easily.
I am active but also comfortable just being quiet. I am willing to take risks to do things that I haven't done before. I am interested in what is happening in the country and in the world and I even enjoy the challenge of a brain stimulating conversation. I am positive, roll with the punches and am politically liberal.
As most women seem to write “I am warm and compassionate". Me too and I'd add affectionate and sensual. And for me these are even true! I am able to invest in someone fully. I am passionate and show it in all ways that matter. I love to play and enjoy and am a fan of emotional and physical intimacy.
What am I looking for beyond “just” a male? Glad you asked. I greatly value honesty both in myself and my “match”. My best match is probably an educated guy, open and fun. If he has imagination, a wry sense of humor, or maybe just tends to have an original point of view about things, so much the better. I’d like to have fun and play with a man who shares some or preferably many of my interests and passions.
That being stated, I am not looking for an exclusive, committed, monogamous relationship, at least now - although, I do see someone regularly on week-ends. Our relationship is open in the sense that we are each independent agents in the social arena; but, honorable and sensitive to the sensibilities of each other.
Having been in exclusive, committed, monogamous relationships for 46 of my 66 years, I feel it is now important for my personal growth and development to experience "others", namely men.
