My interests include music -- playing, singing, dancing, or listening to an eclectic mix; food -- cooking and sharing intimate dinners at home, or enjoying an occasional dining-out experience; outdoor activities -- hiking the hills with my canine companion, or gazing into a seaside tidepool; exploration -- revisiting places I've enjoyed before, or discovering the new and interesting; entertainment -- attending a live performance, or catching a film at the local cinema; and relaxing at home -- cuddling up to watch a movie, spending a weekend morning in bed, or sipping cognac in front of a roaring fire. But any activity can be fun, and everything is more fun with the right companion....
I seek a best friend, loving partner, and life companion. My ideal match is someone who already shares some of my interests, but also wants to show me his and try new adventures together. He is emotionally mature, financially solvent, intelligent and articulate, and has high integrity. He knows from experience that a great relationship requires communication, cooperation, and compromise. He is neither perfect nor seeking perfection, and has learned the value of forgiveness and unconditional love. Romantic and affectionate, he is ready to connect with a woman once again as best friends and lovers.
Together we will create a committed relationship based on the kind of trust and mutual support that will allow us to thrive, both as individuals and partners. We will share a certain chemistry that attracts and binds us to one another -- emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually -- even when the going gets tough.
Meaningful work -- having places to apply my skills and energy where I feel challenged and can make a contribution.
Food and water -- having enough of both so my needs are met and I am able to maintain good health.
Shelter -- having a place to live that supports my needs ... physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Exercise -- having opportunities to move and stretch that enable me to keep my body and mind in good shape.
Community -- being part of an extended "family" of like-minded folks, working together to transform ourselves and the world.
Love -- how to nurture and grow my relationships with friends, lovers, community.
Money -- how to attract it, manage it, and make it last for the duration.
Health -- how to stay healthy and strong, especially as one grows older.
