I practice yoga. It makes me feel great.It's so enjoyable and physically satisfying especially after having sat at a computer all day. My day job (I'm an analyst and project manager) does not reflect all of who i am.
I want to date but without the expectation of finding a soul-mate on a website. It may just happen, sure. More realistically, I want to meet a guy who's company I genuinely enjoy and I am attracted to.
Okay i've added this part recently. It was an exercise completed for another Ok Cupider. I liked it so much i did up a check list of my own. It adds another level of granularity in evaluating compatibility. These are desired, key elements of my 'mate':
Essential. Especially sharp, witty retorts. think "The Newsroom".
I like it a lot and more than the vanilla kind. Ideally my lover would share in explorations of this, if not lead them.
While i enjoy frequent banter it's not malicious in any way. We are all beings in this world. No one better than another. Compassion is hard to practice consistently but i'm trying.
I need mine. I'm not one to communicate daily with others if not required. In fact when i'm home from work many days i shut off my phone and ignore texts just to feel the peace and quiet. I certainly would not want to be required to check in every day with my lover/partner.
I love them. All kinds. Have always been constants in my life. I find them life affirming in many ways. I've spent many weekends involved with them in some capacity.
5 feet 8 or above (just a preference not absolute). I do like tall men.
Solid physique (not athletic, nor necessarily fit-just average)
Very good with their hands : technical, mechanical or any engineering skills are a big bonus
Recently finished The Sisters' Brothers, love Jeannette Winterston, Harper Lee, Alice Walker, Jane Austen, Khaled Hosseini , most Canadian authors, just now working through The Hunger Angel by Herta Muller.
