A little about me...
I consider myself a person of spiritual integrity and a person who my friends say I am fun to be with. Most of the time I enjoy being with myself as well. My friends and family are important elements in the fabric of my life. I especially enjoy open, honest and oftentimes passionate conversations with all persons with whom I come into contact.
My employment background is in teaching and social work. I was born in New Orleans, LA, and have resided also in Alabama, Florida, Texas, and Mississippi. I have lived in North Carolina since 1981. Have traveled USA and abroad. Meeting people from and experiencing other cultures has been my privilege and joy. I have participated in community theatre--enjoy listening to music, reading, dancing, cooking and sometimes just hanging out with myself. I enjoy outdoor activities--hiking, horseback riding and canoeing. I also appreciate the pensive sharing of a glass of wine or cup of coffee with just about anyone who is not dangerous to him/herself or others. Traveling, short and long trips out and about are fun--meeting, learning, experiencing the hidden wholeness in the scheme of things.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a person who desires a long term, exclusive relationship and one who shares some similar interests. It is important that this person also has some interests different from mine--I'd like to keep expanding my horizons together with my partner. My partner would realize it doesn't matter whether I play golf, snow ski or play tennis since he's not looking for a sports buddy. I especially appreciate a man with a good sense of humor. I am looking for a man who is comfortable with sharing personal feelings, who is physically and verbally affectionate, thoughtful and caring but not possessive-- someone open to life's many surprises--someone who relishes a meaningful conversation with me as much as he would relish engaging in one of his favorite hobbies or activities. He would know it is important to stay emotionally connected because if one takes for granted this precious connection with one's partner, by default, it becomes irrevocably damaged and often lost completely. You need a good heart to win a good heart..
My ideal partner will have faults along with the wisdom and courage to know when and how to say, "I'm sorry" (That goes for me, too, of course.).
He would also love just holding my hand.
I'd just like to add...
A brief suggestion for my potential partner: don't communicate only about how you spend your spare time or what kind of music or food you like. Please tell me where your heart is, what really matters to you in the bare "ongoingness of things." .If just being in one another's presence is mutually inviting, , I guarantee we will agree on what to do in our spare time, and it won't matter what music is playing. (As romantic songs go, though, I do sort of favor "As Time Goes By" followed up by "Misty.")
