In the spitting image of Messrs. B & B, I excel at supporting others. I regularly share job (and romantic) opportunities with friends, and enthusiastically edit cover letters and grant proposals when asked. One friend, long single, married a woman to whom I purposely introduced her. I like to see people thrive and fulfill their mission in life.
My innate ability to connect with people from different cultures has opened many opportunities and defined my life. I have family – biological and honorary – all over the country and world. I have good friends who live in bamboo huts in jungle villages, drinking water from springs, and other good friends who live in comparative mansions, drinking water from bottles. Who's richer?
I've been humbled by many experiences while traveling, including:
- beholding a manta ray glide beneath me in the Indian Ocean.
- being moved to tears in Angkor Wat upon hearing music played by men who lost limbs to US landmines.
- being 'adopted' by a Zapotec woman in Oaxaca when my mother was very ill.
I open doors for other people. I revere elders. I write letters by hand. I greet strangers on the street. Was I born two centuries tardy?
I'm looking for a woman who will bring out my best and inspire me to grow. A fitness/meditation/travel partner would be awesome. My ideal relationship is abundant in respect, friendship, admiration, honesty, care, fascination, flirtation, passion, romance, hilarity, and trust. I am attracted to confidence, curiosity, compassion, critical thinking, boldness, ambition, accomplishment, directness, and sass. A love of the outdoors is essential. Extra points if you've a black belt.
