I have an artistic soul ; I'm funny and light-hearted, but also have a deeply serious side...I embrace the sublime and the ridiculous, the light and the dark......And I'm a realist more than a pessimist or optimist. My creator made me a deeply passionate person, and I'm still a believer in finding a forever love (guess I'm still the optimist here).
Also, the "other" religion that I'm "somewhat serious about" is not really a religion per se...I adhere to a strong sense of spirituality that includes teachings of various religions, with a healthy dose of pure, old-fashioned hippie ethics and spirituality, and although I definitely am not stuck in the 60's, I AM grounded in what I learned from those days, both politically and spiritually.
I freely admit, by the way, to having had my share, and maybe more, of "bumps in the road" on my journey, some from circumstances beyond my control, and some self-inflicted. But I look at them now as events which needed to happen in order to arrive at the positive, spiritually calm (or getting there anyway; it's always an ongoing process) place I find myself settling into.If you can relate to this kind of trajectory in your own life or at least have empathy with someone who has experienced this kind of history of ups and downs , then I think we have a head start in perhaps being compatible.
I have a youthful outlook on life . I've always heard that I'm supposed to become more conservative as I get older. Hasn't happened yet, and I'm positive it's never going to. If anything, the current political climate in this country has me feeling more radical than since I was in my 20's, and I remain progressive and open minded in other areas of my life too... I'm hoping to meet someone who can say the same about herself.
Just getting used to having lots of free time, and using it to do things like reading, working out, practicing my instruments, visiting with friends, going to concerts and other types of performance arts, and looking to do some traveling.
the love and support of my friends and family
music, especially the artists mentioned above
I'd say love, sex and eroticism but have sometimes had no choice but to live without them and found to my amazement, that I could when I had to.
staying aware politically( although that can get pretty discouraging sometimes)
Rock and/or roll
spiritual matters, the nature of consciousness and eternity etc; the BIG questions
how to be a better person
I want to add that I also would enjoy having a partner who takes care of her health with regular exercise etc. BTW, OKC 's personality ratings have me at being "less energetic" .Odd for a 65 year old who goes to the gym 4 or 5 days a week....So while some of their characterizations are pretty accurate , some are more or less absurd.
