Me? I don't care too much about the looks. I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. And challenge me with her intellect, and make me realize how smart she is. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with. I decided this along with my view and approach to matters physical. all means that I am sapiosexual.
I am new to the Portland area as far as living here. I know the area and surrounding area pretty well, but not the nuance and vibe of neighborhoods and all that Portland has to offer.
I am venturing to trying new things and enhancing old favorite things....hiking is new, kayaking (I own two that need to see more water) small venue live music, small venue community theater, random road trips and garage sale outings......the hot springs (I have never been to any in Oregon)
I have an unencumbered life for the most part.......not a lot of money, and NO debt.........I recently did a 3800 mile road trip to Phoenix to visit my Sister.......fabulous with an auspicious start.... a funny story.
I am also good at making up words, changing usage, and using too many words to convey a thought or idea and let a sentence run on way too long talking gibberish as I am not really shy but use a lot of words sometimes to cover up a bit of shyness.......whew.....
Just breathe........I am learning to do that, and meditate and yoga.....and feel like I am becoming a sheeple at times.....but do stuff because I want to, not because everyone else is.....
I constantly listen to books when I drive.
The ocean and beaches
A great blues riff
Crossword Puzzles (in ink)
My air guitar
My real guitar
A car for road trips
A woman that likes tools
Sarcastic, yet playful non-hurtful banter
The other day I was driving across a bridge by Astoria. The shoulder was very narrow. There were two bicyclists riding the same direction as I. I passed the first rider, a woman, as I approached the second (a man) I noticed an object lying in the bike lane. It wasn't remarkable, but posed a possible hazard. I watched the man turn and look back at the woman and the object and I could see the concern on his face. It was a look of deep love. He was more concerned with her safety than his own. I don't quite know how to tell you I knew it was love and concern, but I recognized it absolutely. THAT, is what I seek. To Love, and trust outside and above my own self. It is more that I am longing to learn to be more selfless and giving so that I am capable of that "Bike rider moment".
It has been suggested to me that the last paragraph makes it sound as if I am seeking "THE ONE" I guess in a round about way that is true, but I am not looking for "THE ONE" or my "SOUL MATE" I am looking for good open minded people to spend a bit of time with. To be challenged, motivated, inspired. The other stuff will just happen when we least expect it to, or when we quit looking for IT. Hope that makes sense?????????
It gets described many different ways on this and other sites. "My best friend, my soul mate, the Love of my life......etc......" But words can not aptly paint the picture, it is so much more.
The trust aspect is not about being told the truth, or not being lied to, it is about trusting that one can be vulnerable. Vulnerable to feel, and reveal yourself to the other and knowing that you will not be judged and that ones quirks, and oddities will be treated as sacrosanct. We will not try to change each other, but to inspire each other to be more. We will not argue, but we will never shy away from debate or allowing that we have differing views, because we will honor our differences as much as we celebrate our similarities.
I am still searching for the words............I am still searching for the selflessness that comes from trusting vulnerability.
Or, they are all a-typical.....
I don't know, I can be quite boring at times.......
