I don't sweat the small stuff. I don't have a checklist. If you are kind and if we have chemistry and you own your own sh*t then we can go from there. The rest are in the details. Life is too short to focus on what is wrong with the other rather than what is right for each of us.
A lot of people here are unsure about this online dating process. I know that I cannot really tell from an online profile and questions/answers how the chemistry is between two people.
I think this quote captures how the online dating process is backwards: "An online profile is like reading the ingredients on a box of food and trying to imagine what it would taste like." So take my ingredients with a grain of salt ;-).
Speaking of food metaphors...I take the spaghetti approach to dating, i.e. throw it on the wall and see if it sticks. Just try it out and see. I would love someone who appreciates me and I appreciate in turn. I am willing to try and am open to the possibilities (throwing on the wall) and if someone "sticks" then that's great.
I believe that we live from love or fear. I work on living consciously from love. I am not always consistent or mindful and I recognize that. I would love a mate that does too. I want us to find our common humanity and in turn, our heart. Come join me and take the risk. This Jim Carrey's video captures this nicely https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJD5-R_HPCc
I view life and relationships the same, if there is a willingness to be in our hearts and to be connected then things can be worked out and life can be enjoyed.
I have been described as kind, grounded, open, honest, intelligent, empathetic, calm, centered, and positive.
I don't really have a "go to" thing to do. I enjoy being physically active, emotionally connected, and intellectually engaged so that can cover a variety of things. I am up for most anything for it is the company I share that is important to me more so than the activity.
NOTE: I do not see "likes" for that requires being a paying member.
