My self-summary
Considering a re-write here-- may delete this soon.

After a long, hard day at work as a counselor/clinician, I hope to come home to a loving relationship based on kindness, good communication, good sex, reliability, and wonder. It's important to be in a good place prior to being in a relationship. I laugh a lot, so should you. I have 2 master's degrees and employed doing what I love, so I'm looking for someone educated and making the most of it, too.

Lately, I've been into acupuncture, yoga, meditation, cycling and swimming. Just lost 45 lbs...happy about that. :)

"You can connect from all kinds of places- energetic harmony, sexual alchemy, intellectual alignment- but they won’t sustain love over a lifetime. You need a thread that goes deeper, that moves below and beyond the shifting sands of compatibility. That thread is fascination- a genuine fascination with someone’s inner world, the way they organize reality, the way they hearticulate their feelings, the unfathomable and bottomless depths of their being. To hear their soul cry out to you again and again, and to never lose interest in what it is trying to convey. If there is that, then there will still be love when the body sickens, when the sexuality fades, when the perfection projection is long shattered. If there is that, you will swim in love’s waters until the very last breath."
