I'm working hard and thinking about what I will be doing in retirement (still a few years away). It's a strange and exciting time of life - I feel smarter, more confident, less concerned about trivial matters. There is truth in the expression that youth is wasted on the young.
I am slowly getting through the questions...
While I think that many of the topics are important, often none of the choices accurately describe my feelings or opinions... or are so ridiculously inane. And really, aren't there better ways to get to know someone?
While it may not be the most private thing I will admit...I was on this site last year. I was eager to have an interesting profile, so I answered lots of questions. What I failed to realize was that I could actually skip questions and only focus on things important or relevant. So this time, being more selective, I have fewer responses.
I have no laundry list describing my ideal relationship. I am not interested in finding a man with identical interests. Some common ground is important but I enjoy being exposed to new ideas and experiences. The main qualities I seek are basic - intelligence, humor, integrity, kindness, passion, and the ability to say "I don't know", "I was wrong" and "I'm sorry" when appropriate.
