Thank you for taking a look at my profile.
"Life offers infinite possible roads. Sometimes your head chooses the route, sometimes your heart. And sometimes, for better or worse, neither head nor heart can resist the stubborn pull of fate." ~ Dean Koontz ~
The short version:
I’d like to find someone with whom to share a great love and an enduring meaningful relationship. A partner whose life I enrich. Someone who encourages, inspires, and magnifies me, and I, him. Someone who wants me to share their time and companionship; someone who’d like to be the object of my affection, held, cuddled, loved. If it might be you, your good thoughts and messages sent out into the sky for swellcuddler will be well received and appreciated.
The less short version:
I'm a relentlessly affectionate cuddler hoping to find someone nice to hold throughout the night. Distance is only a temporary inconvenience, not a valid excuse except for the guys whose only interest is in "real" "now" casual sex encounters - and that's not me. Today the world is a small place, and there's no reason why friends can't be together if they want to be. The difficulty is to find the people who really want to be and are willing to do what it takes to make it happen. I'm willing. Dallas is not my Shangri la, and I'm eager to make a new home, so if it's half way around the world - no problem.
I strive to live life with compassion, determination, and humility, and it would be nice to find someone similarly inclined. I am not "very good-looking", gym-fit, 6-pack, or "hot" - although I do have a befitting appreciation for those things. I’m just a guy, hopefully a good guy, looking to make a difference in the world. I am sensitive to environmental and humanitarian issues, hoping that the world will better, but at least be no worse off, on the balance, for my having been here. I am shy and not comfortable promoting myself, but will be happy to answer any appropriate questions you might care to ask.
It might seem that I am wandering aimlessly, but I’m not lost -- I am exploring! I’m looking to meet good men around the world for friendship and more. Compatible people who perhaps possess qualities that I find myself lacking, and who understand and appreciate the difference between meaningful friendship and friendship of convenience. And if they cuddle - Super! Of course, it would be swell to meet a life-partner. I’m always eager to meet people of different cultures abroad, and would be happy to travel to share good company or make a new home. Greece, and Greeks are a particular passion.
Alternatively, I’m up for a friendly chat.
Some favorite books would include "The Egyptian", "The Iliad", "The Odyssey", "The Lord of the Rings", "The Velveteen Rabbit", "Doc Savage", and "Goat Song".
Some of my thoughts, expressed by others:
In nothing do men approach so nearly to the gods as in doing good to men.
Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.
~ Isaac Asimov
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
~ Mark Twain
A favorite poem:
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Candles iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
The days of our future stand in front of us
like a row of little lit candles --
golden, warm, and lively little candles.
The days past remain behind us,
a mournful line of extinguished candles;
the ones nearest are still smoking,
cold candles, melted, and bent.
I do not want to look at them; their form saddens me,
and it saddens me to recall their first light.
I look ahead at my lit candles.
I do not want to turn back, lest I see and shudder
at how fast the dark line lengthens,
at how fast the extinguished candles multiply.
Konstantinos P. Kavafis(Greece - 1899)
Good wishes all......
