So no matter how well I intellectualize this, ultimately chemistry and passion plays a large part of it and we will only find that out in person. However, once that's there, next i absolutely need someone I can talk to -- I mean about anything, not just the easy bs. I'm looking for open, honest, insightful, empathetic, intelligent, and emotionally connected communication. Give me that along with an insatiable appetite for romance and adventure and we'll change the world. seriously. Philosophically i don't do victims. I believe beauty is where you find it, life is a gift (although not always fair) and in the end it is what we make of it and who we make it with. I’m looking for a partner who's not afraid -- of much. learning, traveling, growing, laughing, crying, failing, succeeding, ...these are all part of the journey. work hard, play hard, learn hard, love hard, fall hard and get up and do it all over again. I'm looking for a friend, a wingwoman who's beautiful inside and out with the passion and intelligence to navigate a full, fun, and exciting life. And lastly, no kids yet -- but eventually. And when I do they'll be badasses so i'll need a little help pulling that off with someone equally special..... One more thing: here's one of my humor/philosophy/political sensitivities filter: South Park. Huge fan. I believe it is absolutely genius on so many levels. If you laugh at irreverent, intelligent, un-pc, South Park style humor -- we'll get along just fine.
