By way of introduction, read all or part of the following keeping in mind that humor and seriousness are not contradictory. I'm quite humorous, curious, creative, and sometimes intense, Usually open and relaxed, very approachable, receptive and responsive. I'm attracted to rather than intimidated, (as is sometimes mentioned in profiles), by a woman's 'muchness' -- intelligence, competence, creativity, curiosity, expressiveness, femininity, and emotional and physical strength, openness and vulnerability.
Neither race, ethnicity, education, height, or religion (unless fundamentalist or orthodox) are deal breakers. I've had close loving relations with women of varied backgrounds. If you're heatfull, mindful, feminine, and strong, I'd love to explore the possibility of either friendship or coupling.
I've known what it is to love, cherish, nurture, and celebrate friend or lover, and seek either of those possibilities. Sadly, the truth is that many live defensively in avoidance of disappointment. Nothing in my experience deters me from once again seeking the joy of love - an easy flow of conversation, the bubbling warmth of laughter and finding humor in the moment, the singular feeling of being-at-home-together, relaxed and caring, passionate and intense, the sanctuary of tenderness and touch, and the affinity of shared presence being visible each to the other. Do you have the courage (the root apparently means "to have heart" to say yes to life and love, or at least sharing and friendship?
I also wonder at the basic absence of human contact on these sites; that members seem to believe they can achieve friendship or romance from a digital display. Even a single meeting is a lesson in the distinction between a living, animated person and a two dimensional computer display. It seems many don't learn from experience and prefer their digital fantasy to the living reality of a person's presence. Even openness to conversation is relatively rare. What I've learned from my work isn't that people aren't sincere about their desires but that they're busy being who they are and can't get there from where that is. As long as the priority remains to defend one's self or maintain the comforting illusion of a fictional ideal, there's no actual place for a vibrant living person.
