Not a gabber. Silence and empathy and intention inform the tenor of my listening, the quality of my touch, and movement of my heart. Two people with deep intention can create something exceptionally beautiful. Honesty and authenticity are not necessarily milk and honey all the time, but high voltage and vital.
If you are an astute interlocutor who appreciates moments of shared silence; if you have a sensitive, intuitive, empathic heart; if you value the challenge of personal growth more than the insouciant status quo; then we may find some commonalities. While I am ultimately interested in marriage and family, I would prefer to begin slowly, building a friendship --- perhaps some hikes, perhaps some meandering day trips, perhaps some bottles of wine, perhaps some giggle-fits --- a playful and languidly relaxed courtship that allows the blossoms of our hearts to open, softly and gently, of their own accord. There is no reason that dating cannot be noble endeavor.
