--I like using humor to put people at ease. I can be intense and focused, or relaxed. Sincere, sometimes playful. I read widely and follow politics here & around the world.
--I grew up on a farm in southeastern Pennsylvania.
--I enjoy building things: relationships and projects.
--I like sharing: what's more fun than doing things with your partner? Shared values, intellectual stimulation and challenge are important. I look for strong mutual attraction; a basis for trust; good communication skills; active, not necessarily sports, though golf together would be fun.
--At the top of the list: being able to talk about anything important to either partner. The ability to both agree and disagree.
I am friendly, funny, and wiser than before.
