Are you attractive to me? Am I to you?
When I look into your eyes, can I see myself being nose to nose with you in the most intimate of settings? How about when you look into mine?
What about when you are hurt, or ill, or have done me wrong, can I still keep the fondness and care I have for you present? Could you for me?
When I think of you, does a smile spread across my face? Are you smiling when you think of me?
At the end of the day, is my first inclination to contact you to ask you how your day was and to share how mine was? Do you wish to do the same?
When I look up at the clouds and say "Wow, look! There's a fire-breathing dragon in that cloud." do you say "I see it! Nice catch!" or do you say "Clouds suck."?
Do you have hobbies that you love to do? Do ours match?
Do you enjoy bowling and would you bowl on a league?
Do you enjoy like the science fiction and fantasy realms of life?
Do you like games of all sort?
Are you a beer drinker with a volleyball problem?
Do you like puns?
Do you love the Oregon Coast?
Would you like to see your 100th birthday with all of your capacities still intact?
Are you okay with and do you enjoy being alone as much as you enjoy being with others?
Do you have a creative and/or entrepreneurial mind?
Is the television an unimportant part of your reality?
Do you see a better way for society to operate, and are willing to do something about it?
Are you inherently lazy, and in knowing this, fill your life with meaningful objectives to the point where you've never uttered the word "bored"?
Are you a spelling and grammar Nazi?
Do you look for balance in life, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually?
Do you think things through logically before taking action?
Are you a healthy human, with a healthy diet and lifestyle?
Do we share a similar vision of the world, where it has been, where it is, where it is going, and what we might do to improve upon its trajectory?
Are we pointed in the same direction...first towards each other...and second toward the same point on the horizon?
Are you a deep thinker?
Are you an emotional human...and do you know how to utilize those emotions in a respectful manner toward others, especially your partner?
Can you speak in clear, coherent, sentences?
Do you enjoy a lively debate that may or may not have a clear and concise winner or loser, and can be fine with that ambiguity?
Are you open, honest, and willing to share, in confidence, your secrets?
Do you understand who you are, what you are, and why you are? Can you express that to another?
Do you have a strong sense of empathy? Can you, in every instance, walk a mile in another person's moccasins?
Are you altruistic? Do you understand the self-serving nature of altruism sufficient to know the benefit that giving to others provides to you?
At the end of the day, we are here for connection. Woman and man were not meant to live their lives alone. We can do it if we must, and most of us on here have for some period of time...yet I can imagine that the consensus would indicate that it is not our favorite thing.
That which is listed above is by no means exhaustive. I am not looking for a perfect match. I hope you are not either. Instead, I am looking for a positive and empowered connection. I hope you are too.
Best of luck in your search for connection. May the affinity, reality, and communication you have blend well with that of another, and may you both be pointed towards each other from the moment you meet until the sun sets on the horizon you both walk toward.
