Epiphany number two: As a twenty-one year old, I fell in love as a result of (mostly) the biological imperative of wishing to create a beautiful family. That was a success because that family was created and still exists, I am happy to report. The relationship between myself and the father of my children is still one of love, but that love is that of two people who have known each other well for many, many years and know that we cannot successfully live with each other. (thus the divorce). What I realized after communicating with another OKC person, was that the person I seek know to (hopefully) spend the rest of my life with, is someone who I will love based not only on kissable lips, expressive eyes and strong arms, but someone who offers the world more than he takes. That, to me, is such an important idea. It is what I wish for myself and something that I find as attractive, if not more, than those utterly kissable lips.

I have had an epiphany - that all elusive spark, the chemistry that seekers of romance are on the lookout for may, just may, be buried in all of the frenzied, cool, buzzed out world of technology we are currently moving around in. Maybe those embers we hope will be nurtured into flame and that oh so special feeling that is shared between two people are actually being smothered by bandwidth, virtual banter and online game playing. So, does that mean we cannot find that special someone on OKCupid? I don't know the answer, but wonder what other people think about the idea.
August 2015 Update:
Feel free to contact me if you wish to meet someone else who is also looking for a wonderful partnership.
I have come to the conclusion that seeking perfection, in myself or others, is not only a thankless task but it is a waste of energy. So, from today on, I am determined to appreciate the incremental joys and observe as much as possible, what works and what doesn't.
I am kind, compassionate, and honest and that pretty much summarizes it!
Enjoying creativity. I love art, colors, textures. Music: classical guitar, classical period. Rock n' roll - Beatles, Paul McCartney, Sting, Los Lonely Boys, Rolling Stones. Motown in all its glory, Jazz - Dave Brubeck. Swing - Frank Sinatra and currently Michael Buble but open to listening to new sounds, as long as they are created by people as opposed to machines.
Listening and talking in equal measure - in other words, sharing a conversation.
Movies: They Way We Were, Defiance, A Hard Day's Night, Out of Africa, Cool Hand Luke, Robin and Marian, Citizen 4 (again same as above on the favorites thing)
See above in "I am really good at"
Food: As a vegetarian, I enjoy just about any vegetable, fruit or whole grain prepared with a light hand in seasoning and less rather than more cooking.
