Life is about balance for me, and I work hard at maintaining a good, healthy balance. I pay attention to my emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well being. I am honest about my feelings and am comfortable with exploring emotional depth. I voraciously read and in addition to work which is quite challenging I teach a couple of graduate level courses. The students keep me focused and honest! I visit the gym several times a week and am nutrition conscious...most of the time! I meditate and enjoy reading such authors as Eckhart Tolle. In turn, I am attracted to a well-balanced, inquisitive, good-hearted woman.
Honesty and accepting responsibility are at the top of my list. Most but not all of the dilemmas we find ourselves in are of our own doing. I am constantly trying to improve myself but I also know how to have fun and "give it a rest!" I say what I mean and mean what I say. I am a counselor by trade and am a very good listener. I love to communicate and hear what’s on the mind, heart, and soul of that special person!! I’ve been told that I definitely know how to treat a woman and am extremely attentive. That includes all the little surprises, all the little things that light up our days.
I am not a sports addict and don't glue myself to a television for sports although I DID grow up in Pittsburgh...GO STEELERS!! I like to be active, get up and go, and try new things. How about tennis, hiking, travel? I’ve been to some very interesting places and would love to hear some of your travel experiences as well.
I am quite content with my life at the moment. I have great relationships with my kids, get along fine with my ex wife, and I have an extremely stable job that provides financial security. I have worked very hard on the issues around my divorce and think I've done a pretty good job working through my "baggage." I finished grad school (again) in the spring of 2012. It just feels "right" from a timing perspective to find that special person. I'm absolutely certain you are out there!!!
Final note: Humor, humor, humor. I have to be able to laugh at myself or I'm doomed!! I am financially secure and have no debt. I am also in outstanding health and don't need someone to "take care" of me in my old age unless of course something unforeseen happens. Maybe I'll take care of you!
I find that I am attracted to a person who has the same kinds of attributes and values as the ones I have outlined for myself. Could that be you? Talk to me! Let's not miss each other!!
