My self-summary
By way of introduction, read all or part of the following keeping in mind that humor and seriousness are not contradictory. Since a two dimensional digital simulation isn't a living person I don't approach profiles in 'search' of a magical One-and-Only. At best they're an invitation to communication and conversation just as one would do at a social event where we wouldn't stare and inquire, "Are you IT?"
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. If you're heatfull, mindful, feminine, and strong, I'd love to explore the possibility of a great friendship.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm very independent and self directed. I've had a life long fascination with the "Who am I" - the wonderful depth, scope and mystery of the self and life which I've pursued through a range of professional and personal experience (art and nature- details when we connect).
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 joys of an easy flow of conversation, the bubbling warmth of laughter and finding humor in the moment, the singular pleasure of feeling-at-home-together, relaxed and caring, passionate and intense, the sanctuary of tenderness and touch, and the affinity of shared presence that arises from each being visible to the other. Friendship begins with communication and conversation.
I’m really good at
... finding humor in the moment, listening, appreciating and celebrating your bright mind, buoyant spirit, deep feelings, energy and strength. The contemporary woman capable of flexing her mind and muscles is a turn on not an intimidation.
The first things people usually notice about me
... my receptivity, ease, sometimes intensity, and my openness. And there's laughter
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My taste in the arts and culture ranges wide and deep. Maybe I'll add some specifics or just ask. In addition to prospering from being audience to the gifts of musicians, dancers, writers, artists, and actors, I love being outdoors and especially enjoy seeing the moon's journey across the heavens through the month from month to month, I generally bike to these 'hives' of creative activity.
Six things I could never do without
... my mind, my heart, humor, laughter, curiosity, and joy in nurturing and loving (this is a circle not a line, each equally available from my center)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Given the existential reality that we're just passing thorough, what greater priority is there than love, friendship, and creative living. I'm fascinated by our current explorations into reality from the Big Bang to dark matter and energy, the evolution of life, and the mystery of consciousness. Have you seen images from the Hubble telescope yet wondered that 93% of the universe supposedly isn't visible? And what about that 3 pound entity known as the most complex object in the known universe - the human brain.....
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.
On a typical Friday night I am
... at a performance or museum. With you it might include dancing, snuggling at home, preparing a meal together or watching a film....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A profile is an invitation. If someone gives it the respect of their attention coupled with a thoughtful or felt response, they usually deserve a reply, even if it's a "Not interested", "Not attracted", "Unavailable", "Interested but can't make it". Rejection isn't an excuse for indifference, insensitivity, reduction of others (equally aware and feeling humans) since it's delusional to ignore that it's 98% of what takes place and to use it to excuse a non-reply because one doesn't want to hurt someone's feelings.
You should message me if
... you appreciate a guy capable of making you laugh, stimulating your mind, and who truly admires a contemporary woman who radiates with the joy of realizing her personal potential as a bright, buoyant, attractive, well toned, playful, feminine and fit, creative being. Affinity is a wonderful gift, neither threatening or intimidating, to appreciate and be appreciated as friend or lover.
