A valued friend and confidant that I look forward to seeing would go a long way. If we can figure out how to work all aspects of our relationship out together that would be rather nice. If we could accomplished that in the present, I can't begin to imagine why we wouldn't want to perpetuate the same in the future. It would be nice if that started with a drink or activity of some kind in the present.
In the past I have mountain climbed, snow camped, ice climbed, wilderness traveled, river & sea kayaked, road & mountain biked, ridden motorcycles, broken a few bones tryin just a little too hard, lifted houses, been a winemaker's assistant, restored vehicles, created blueprints, built and restored buildings. traveled out of the country.
What I am looking for is a strong independent woman to enjoy time with, drawing from activities in our past and creating new experience that we can enjoy together in the future.
I enjoy the company of an intelligent, articulate and conscientious woman with her own edge that doesn't need a man but rather chooses to have one be a positive part of her life. I just find it so much easier and far more gratifying. It is not a threat to my identity for yours to exist.
I am far from quiet when I have something to say and I get my point across rather well when needed. Although, I find it is clearly more interesting to witness others in bloom. This contrast seems to confuse many about me. If your the chatty type, you will think that I am a god... as I enjoy listening to what it is that you have to share.
As one of the youngest of eight kids I learned early on that you can't always have the stage all to yourself and consequently developed the mindset that I don't really care too. I pay more attention to others actions than words. I pay more attention than others realize. I do the anchor role exceptionally well. I can be a skilled leader because i have experience at and know how to fallow.
I know my strengths and weaknesses well and seek to better appreciate yours for the purpose of respecting them fully. Actually I believe this is the key to making any relationship function over time.
I think that I was pretty honest with myself in answering the questions in the "Tests" section, for my benefit and yours, and that my results are an accurate reflection of who I am and what it is that I have to offer.
I am singe because I would rather be alone than with the wrong person. I could go from being single to enjoying a gratifying relationship rather seamlessly and never look back with regret. the most gratifying intimate relationships I have ever experienced have come in waiting. I'm waiting and keeping myself busy in the meantime.
