I know you can fall in and (a bit) out of love with the same person many times. I'll make more time for you than the typical New Yorker--am always looking for ways to be outdoors. Do you bike? Kayak? Me, too.
I am always doing new things. Lately, I've been taking abstract photos (rust! lichen! metal!) and exploring the "Stoics;" I know lots of psychology of the academic/scientific sort and some philosophy. I think about ethics often.
My computer contains a couple of unpublished novels and I have gotten as far as having an agent. Ten years ago I began a poetry group, which is still going strong. I stay close to my Dad who is in love again at 85.

Any/OR... (these are not requirements) Also, though this list may seem long, all of this is true of me.
You are a rationalist. You understand that the world is glorious and unfair and tragic. You do not say "everything happens for a reason" or subscribe to the Law of Attraction.
You like to waltz or other kinds of dance (or would learn).
You want to do new things together--even after the first six months.
You like outdoor activities: xcountry in winter, beach in summer.
