I'm very open, if not completely transparent, tho not w/o being asked -- so feel free to ask me ANYthing you'd like to know (like you would if we were enjoying coffee together for the first, maybe second, time). All questions allowed; answers, optional. :) Can we start by just having some fun here? :)
OK, what isn't revealed in my answers: I'm a local boy with a love of the desert southwest; I'm #5 of 12 siblings -- yep, I was raised VERY catholic too, but I left that far behind in favor of true spirituality; my politics (values) are socially liberal, fiscally responsible; my natural manners are a bit old-fashioned -- I'm decidedly masculine but defy most western male stereotypes -- I want a romantic partnership that enjoys traditional gender roles AND true equality too; I was partnered/married for 17 yrs, have been single too long, and am available and ready for a lifelong romantic partnership.
Well, I hope you have more questions now than before. If so, keep reading with an open heart and easy smile. If still intrigued, let's get together and talk.
ps: this site's match % ratings don't mean much to me because I've taken every opportunity to playfully answer the questions upon which they are based. ;)
Or away? my back side
contribution, nurturing/giving, creating beauty
an inspiring dream, self-improvement
music & dance
great food, luscious wine, and aromatic spirits
bathing in life, stimulating my senses -- esp touch, taste, smell (sensual, not necessarily sexual)
Oh, and why people aren't more playful on these forums -- AND why I'm filling out more of these essays despite my better judgment? :)
When dating or in a relationship -- I'm enjoying you and whatever else we choose to do, maybe checking out a new restaurant too.
-- You love to travel, both to relax and to experience the ways and rhythms of other cultures;
-- You are omnivorous -- and LOVE celebrating life with great food, fine spirits, and intimate conversation with close company;
-- You are ready for your last and best ever romantic relationship; you are ready to fall in love and grow an intimate partnership, that inspires the best in each of us, and treasures "we" as bigger than "me".
