It’s much harder and more complicated than it seems at first blush, pun intended. How difficult is it to find a similar mind-heart, not necessarily a soul mate, to share life’s journey, the second or more time around? Many opinions and many different answers to that question, I’m sure. But I digress.
My mind tends to be tangential, rather a free associating type, so I often have to remind myself to come back to center and focus on the initial purpose, which is to describe myself, in an overview sort of way, as well as to say what type of man I’m interested in getting to know. I like interesting, intelligent, intense and enthusiastic people who seek to know themselves better, to continue to learn about the people and world around them and who are inwardly, in spirit, and outwardly, in action, gentle, kind, honest and compassionate.
I am a serious romantic and love all things about love from first butterflies to warm hugs to passionate kisses. Also love music, all kinds-it’s the international language of lovers and everything else, and can take you away- to tears or smiles of intense memory or a truly foreign land- it’s just magical. Museums, theater, symphony, opera, local art galleries, wine tasting, any number of cultural events are always on my to do list. Travel is another serious love- anywhere discovering new roads, learning new cultures, meeting new people, trying new food, it’s exciting and I am a hooked travel addict. Important to add that I love to read; again the gamut is significant, soup to nuts kind of stuff; classics, science fiction, self-improvement, psychology, spy/adventure, modern lit, etc.
Ok, so I am:
Petite, attractive, curious, adventurous, generous, loving, supportive, intelligent and caring and very patient. I love to learn, listen and laugh, often at myself, and I know what it means to share, compromise and work things out without anger. I can be flirty, fun, playful and I can also be serious, intense and passionate. Guess you could add the Chinese fortune cookie “fun” ending to that last statement. Laughter is essential to a healthy mind and heart- life is too short not to see the cup half full, even on a dark and dreary night…or day for that matter.
The man I’m interested in getting to know is: all of the above, except perhaps not petite ☺, and optimistic, truthful, patient, tolerant, a good cook or one who appreciates one; a man who is witty, wise, fun, with a little mischief in his eye, who also loves music, wine, song and dance; importantly, he is polite, a gentleman, and a man of integrity who is affectionate, loves deeply and has a positive and open mind.
On a bad day-watching the days fly by, watching another year end too quickly, worrying about things I cannot change.
I'm the honest type, even when it's not pretty or easy.
Overall: many, many more good days than bad.
The other side, we can discuss later on, as needed, if interested.
Movies: I see a lot of movies and enjoy film. Recently very much enjoyed,” Melancholia”, Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene”, “Ides of March”, “Midnight in Paris”, "Margin Call", "The Social Network", "The King's Speech", “Inside Job“. Also love the classics, the Stanford Theatre, and indie films.
Music: Almost anything and everything, but especially classic rock, easy rock, Sirius Radio, Pandora and have recently tried Spotify. I like love songs, classical music, Broadway musicals and lots in between from reggae to rap. Music is usually on in my life- at home on my computer or in the car.
Food: no worries, I’m not a big eater, but I like almost everything. Partial to sushi, Italian and Thai and good wine.
I watch very little TV, but do enjoy some HBO, and other series, especially historical ones like The Tutors . I’m currently watching Boardwalk Empire and always enjoy PBS specials, the History and Discovery Chanel, when I do watch.
