After a four year partner type relationship has ended, I seek a new relationship with a woman. When a woman comes along that I find interesting and I want to spend time with, I am energized to explore the possibilities.
Am 65 years old, considered attractive by those who know me, have a good sense of humor that often runs dry…..and I see humor in words and situations that simply go unnoticed by most people.
I am a spiritual person with good moral principles as well as boundaries. My life experiences have taught me compassion, empathy, acceptance and understanding of people and situations entirely different than my own. I live my life left of the bubble.
My ideal match could be tall or small, have long or short hair. She is a kind person, projects a positive and accepting attitude towards others. She believes in the goodness of mankind, animals, earth and shows respect for all by her actions and words. She is liberal, unconventional, and does not settle for the status quo or buckle under to expectations of others. A rebel, a hippie….? Maybe.
I am grateful for the many lessons learned from so many people I have met, know and loved in my life journey so far. Am thankful, grateful for enlightenment shared with me by friends, creatures, water, trees, wild flowers, meadows, valleys, rolling hills, mountains; sunsets, sunrises, thunderstorms; Gracie the Cat's touch on my face in the morning; scent of citrus blossoms; Bora Bora; Paris.
I think chemistry is an important component of a healthy relationship. Have experienced an immediate attraction to a woman through eye contact and conversation before, however I know there is so much more to a healthy, happy and mutually satisfying relationship. Real intimacy (mind-body-soul) takes time to mature and blossom fully.
