I am a minimalist who lives for romance and rich experiences in life that can be fulfilled in the form of travel, art, music and conversation. I find enjoyment in the grandiose and the mundane, equally. I am somewhat of a gritty optimist with a tad of elegance and quirkiness, thrown in for good measure. I have been told that I am a wise and insightful listener which is what makes me great friend.
The most important qualities in a partner for me are intelligence, passion, fun and flexibility. I am looking for someone with a solid sense of self and introspection, but not overly analytical. I appreciate someone who can express and share their feelings. I believe that friendship and fun is absolutely essential in any relationship.
Also, you should know that I am NOT the type of person who is afraid of dirt, bugs, outdoors, dogs (unless they are wild), tap water, waking up early, hard work, or getting caught in the rain.
