To my special angel, I’ve read 2000 bios to find you. I’m still full of hope.
We’ve seen much of life; this will make the future very rich, and a lot of fun! We’ll find new experiences. We’ll share the cream of what we’ve previously enjoyed. This time, I expect the cream will rise to the top, and will do so quickly.
The good Lord has blessed me with many interests, an eye for nature, a kindness for animals, a calmness amid crisis, a blue chip education (Stanford, Harvard), a fascinating international career, fun hobbies and a desire to continue to do good. I have an adventurous side, boat, bike.
I so enjoy creation:wildflowers, bold landscapes, butterflies, wind, the sounds of rain, the surprise of hail. I have limitless curiosity about falcons, owls, hummingbirds; I like to rescue dogs, cats, saving animals from the road. I can sit still long enough that birds will land on me. (I had a grouse family walk across my boots.) Kindness to animals says much about a person.
The natural world would probably be a fit for us: Rushing creeks, crashing waves, tide pools. We might snuggle on a starry night, holding hands – and pointing with the other hand while exclaiming what we see.
I’ve a variety of interests and an adventurous streak. For about 15 yrs, international responsibilities brought me to over 100 countries. I often found a local expert to take me behind-the-scenes. This was fabulous in Athens, Bangkok, Beijing, where much of the best is “off limits.” But I traveled alone. What I missed is you, the romantic, affectionate, curious, energetic partner. I’d return to any of those places with you.
But do we agree: travel is no substitute for a true home. I’m spontaneous about travel, but intentional about roots and would need you to be the same. I am totally happy to hang out, if it's with you.
I love giggling and bursting laughter, so contagious! Jokes are a must. Speeches, after-dinner comments, board meetings, all seem better when begun with a joke, especially with humor that leads to a provocative thought. 6 yrs ago, to address extreme tension in a company I was rescuing from bankruptcy, I began to tell jokes every day!
Please, in our life ahead, no humor at the expense of others. The clever, insightful, or unexpected are welcome anytime. Special terms of endearment, reserved for lovers, are IN. But put-down humor is OUT.
Communication is vital for real passion. “Talking” is just one part of it. I want to know what makes you squeeze gently or hard, with one arm or both. To know what you enjoy, share in it, to kiss passionately … that’s quality time.
My search is for a heart-mate, not a “trophy wife”. I seek a loving, loyal, affectionate, caring, sharing, self confident, warm partner. I will brag about you unless you tell me not to. If this romance is right, we’ll throw ourselves at one another, feeling safe and relaxed. Passion will be natural and perpetual.
In a similar way, having sex is out, making love is in. Intimacy must carry a special purpose: to bring us increasingly close each time, again and again. If we should “fight”, I don’t hold a grudge or bitterness. I’ll admit my wrong. But then we need the habit of reconnecting with new, explosive, fiery, furious intimacy.
I NEED that heart-mate who welcomes a gift of the heart. One who will love both the flower I bring, and the necklace I slip around her neck. That angel will be one who chooses to “say” thanks, sometimes without words.
You’ll see my willingness to search for you over 5000 miles. I meant 10k. But the system only accepts up to 5k. Nothing is more important than getting to you. If needed I will move to your town. I want you that much, and need you to want me just as much. (So if you tell me I'm too far away, it's a polite rejection.)
Finally, in my book, values, experience, character, work, integrity and faith are tops. Formal education, money and "things" are wonderful, when they build those qualities.
