You've touched on an intellectual with passion galore, a tender
alpha male with a yen for laughter. My vocations are social justice-- both Republican smiting and being a successful(enviro /right livelihood) for-profit entrepreneur. My avocations are legion---sea kayaking, independent cinema, the Blues, off the beaten path travel etc.
A South African pop star had her security guards haul me on stage with her at The World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg and sang to the 5000 people there, "Who said white men can't dance"!
With a lover I have an affectionate & ultra-playful side that
manifests itself very noticeably. Committed to great emotional
communication(but not a compulsive processor). I've got some East Coast Jewish intensity (even though I grew up next to a farm)-not at all neurotic, I'm just more incisively analytical,
intellectually challenging(but non-contentious) & generally
inquisitive about almost everything in the universe than most
folks. At the same time, I'm frequently sardonically or
slapstickally funny in that it's in the genes kinda way. And
I've imbibed just enough New Age Kool Aid to love spiritually
communing with a lover by opening our hearts deeply to one another, spending languorous hours & hours in the delectable physical uniting of our bodies, taking occasional visits together to wilderness hot springs etc.
An ideal relationship (to me) has no secrets. Exquisitely direct
AND sensitive communication. Celebration of every day. Spiritual dedication to never taking each other for granted. Continuous growth of all kinds.
There's no substitute for deep intimacy.
It's the sine qua non for profound happiness.
I've learned to offer myself, without reserve, to the right person. I've also learned the importance of common values in discerning whether or not someone is that right person.
I am tender yet alpha, funny, and a bit brainiacal(does NOT rhyme
Plotting fun. Having fun.
Access to election statistics.
Beyond that you could be a taxi driver or a physicist, rich/poor, your hobbies/food tastes--none of these matter very much to me. The ultimate connection would be a delicious loofah-like stimulation of every pore of each other's cerebral, spiritual, sexual & moral beings. Ideally our chemistry together would get us kicked out of hell for being too sweet & out of heaven for being too wanton. But as long as there's a basic attraction and we can share a fun night at the movies and discuss the world over the Sunday papers & good coffee, bliss should pervade the land. ;=)
Together we're capable of co-constructing a luminous interdependence, complete with eventual progeny.
Those potential kids are the sole reason I seek a somewhat younger mate-I think women of all ages are attractive. Up until a month ago my dad still worked as a scientist at age 98 and rode his bicycle daily--- I myself would like to be considered by women who would still like to have children.
I hope you find love on your journey or whatever else it is that you seek.
