If you're a tall, lean, well-educated man on or near the coast--any coast (I've lived on the Pacific and both sides of the Atlantic)--and the inscrutable metrics here (what is that 'enemy' thing?) seem promising, I'd like to hear from you. Sorry, but I won't reply to anyone who has not posted a photo and answered at least some of those infernal questions! I've made the effort and so should we all, the better to know ourselves and each other. Also, I must confess that I am not a fan of facial hair, except on my dog.
As for the BIG things (okay, the sea is a very big thing), I could not live without art, music and literature of the highest standard, regardless of the mode of expression.
Living beings are not things, but since so many people here include them in their lists, I must add that I am daily thankful beyond words for my extraordinarily wonderful son and my zany little terrier (a rescue with a terrible story). In different ways, both have taught me to love unconditionally and live fearlessly.
Also, my current zip code is irrelevant, while my username is not. I am putting my house on the market in late May and am thinking seriously about moving back to New York this summer. If you live there or anywhere on Metro North, that's a huge plus.
One last thing--if I'm to be completely honest, I'd be highly unlikely to form a serious relationship with anyone who is not a mainstream Christian by upbringing, if not by active practice.
