I am a strong man and I like strong women -- very much. I'm someone who will "get" you. I know that even a strong woman sometimes needs support, gentleness, and a shoulder to lean on. I can provide that and still respect and admire you. I know that you need me to listen to you and understand and encourage you, not to give advice or try to fix your problems for you. I know that you want me to tell you about my inner world too (not a problem).
In my life, I have tended to be a leader but one who is democratic and caring about others (although I have no problem asserting myself and taking on a challenge or conflict). In romance, I want a co-leader, an equal partner. If you answered the OK Cupid question, "Should men be the head of the household" with "yes," we are not a match
I am a verbal guy. I like to talk about a myriad of things -- current events, films, books, anecdotes about friends, family and co-workers -- and pepper the conversation with humor and playfulness. I am a happy person.
At other times, I want to "do" versus talk, to see a film, a play, improv, art, to dance, throw a party, go bowling, take a walk, dine out, cook together. And I do so with a sense of enthusiasm, interest, fun, and pleasure.
Professionally, I am a child and family therapist. I love what I do.
I am politically active and involved. These days, however, a lot of that occurs by signing a crapload of online petitions.
I like films, books, art, and music (but more to dance or drive to than to sit and listen to).
I love doing the hardest crosswords I can get my hands on.
I work out, dance, and golf. I play guitar and piano. (I used to be in rock bands -- I sang and wrote songs).
I am seeking a long-term relationship.
Idle random question: why doesn't my autocorrect recognize dirty words? Don't you think it ought to?
