Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm comfortable in my life, having navigating some very challenging
and unexpected turns in the past several years. I am settled in my
career and enjoy my work but it is not the basis of my identity. I
am a parent of 2 wonderful teenage boys (young men) and feel most
grateful for that opportunity. In relationships I believe in
honestly and direct communication -- in my experience this is the
way to have fun and become intimate, and these are my goals. I'm
looking to explore connections, openness, respect, and importantly,
fun! I am devoted to fitness and healthy living and want to meet a
woman who also prioritizes her body and being in good shape. I am a
spiritual person and practice meditation and other forms of
mindfulness. I find this in the outdoors, hiking, running, and
visiting the coastline or beach. My heart has a lot of compassion
to be tapped by the right woman.
