A little about me...
I consider it the most amazing privilege to be able to approach life as this amazing unlimited buffet... one from which I am free to sample from as many different experiences as I can imagine. Over the years, I have sampled many an exotic dish from many an exotic place and see myself as blessed for the being able to do it. I was born and reared in Europe, came to the US at fourteen, educated here, married and divorced here, reared kids here, have lived in a number of countries, made two fortunes (and lost three... but rebuilding... again). Life is this amazing gift and I try never to forget that.
About the one I'm looking for...
OK, so I'm going to be a bit more specific (and feel perfectly free to assume that I'm OK with all the "basics"... walks on the beach, fireplaces, sunsets, travel etc.) If this bluntness bothers you, please know that I have also mastered the art of subtlety but wanted to cut through six layers of fog. So here's the drill:You have to be wicked smart and really quick. You have to like animals. You can't be shy. You can't always agree with me. You have to be tactile. You can't view sex as the penalty you have to pay to be in a relationship nor can you deem it a reward or something you have to tolerate. You MUST know the difference between elegance and arrogance. You can't be rude. You can't be shy and retiring. It would be tremendous if you could carry a conversation past "how's the weather". You need music, good food and exercise for your body and your brain. You can't be completely inflexible. It would be wonderful if you believed that the center of the universe was not you or me or us. You are comfortable with your own company. You are generally no more annoying or obnoxious than I. You think life is generally an absolute blast. You think laughing is astoundingly good and are able to laugh at yourself. .
I'd just like to add...
You won't hesitate to disagree with me and you won't take it personally if I disagree with you. Dive bars with great juke box have a place in the world just as much as Postrio, Aqua or Slanted Door. Jeans are good but so 's that little black dress. Fast cars don't scare you (and neither does getting your hands dirty... often the price you pay when you like cars).
