I hope to meet someone who possesses a sense of self confidence, but also a comfort with ambiguity. As satisfying as it is to find an absolute answer, I have found that life often defies absolutes. Sometimes I find it necessary to get lost to truly find my way.
At heart I am an eternal optimist. Mysteries and challenges hold the allure of discovery and resolution. An apt description of my thought process would be "How do I know what I think till I see what I say"?
What more can I tell you of myself?
My children are a central part of my life. They are continually surprising, inspiring and engaging. I find I learn as much about myself through them as they learn from me. Each day is a new discovery.
Family and friends are very important to me. I am close with my immediate and extended family, though they live predominantly on the east coast. My friends are diverse, traveled, articulate and at times enigmatic.
I love to cook and entertain for friends and acquaintances. The process of pulling together a large meal is cathartic. The realization of new interactions is deeply satisfying.
Outdoors and exercise are a constant. I run and practice yoga regularly. Biking and skiing are seasonal thrills. I would hope to share these passions with a partner.
Reading is the ultimate escape. Whether the New York Times or a good novel, I find reading both stimulating and pacifying.
I love to laugh. Little is more satisfying than an uncontrollable fit of laughter shared with others. I find humor in the mundane and the absurd.
I am romantic and intimate. Trust and openness are fundamental. I would rather discuss doubts and questions than let them fester and grow. I would rather confront issues than have them multiply.
I grew up on the East Coast and lived for many years in Asia. My experiences cultivated in me a deep respect for diverse experiences and viewpoints. I love the challenge of entering the unknown and discovering the strength and flexibility to adapt while maintaining my core values.
I hope to find someone with whom I can enter the unknown and find intimacy and mutual growth.
