City, country, backcountry, suburbs... I do it all. I'm just as likely to have a great time skiing with a pro bar in my pocket as a night at the opera and an elegant meal. I live to feel physically attuned to the world around me - a day out in the elements... deep, grounding conversation... brilliant, clear ideas and passionate art. These are a few of my favorite things.
I am kept on my toes, on belay, laughing and happy with a diverse social circle of friends and contacts I cherish. I read, write, seek times for thoughtful solitude. I prize being dynamic and adaptable to almost anything, yet also driven and focused on what matters most in the depths of my heart and loyalty to self. What I find desirable and attractive in others I seek also to hone within; as Gandhi said - "Be the quality you seek." Through experience I've learned to take life head on and with all my heart, embrace challenge and change, widen the scope of my ideas and perceptions, & love those closest to me fiercely.
I'm looking for someone who knows what they want, has the courage to pursue it, and can articulate their turns in the dance of intimacy. [Hint: "yo lets hang, woman" won't get you far, being demanding sans being enticing, certainly not]. Each person we meet teaches us something about ourselves, but wide is the path that leads to 'friend zone' (at best), while narrow and exclusive is gate to meaningful companionship. I've heard some interesting feedback from time to time - often that I'm 'atypical' for this demographic, a handful claiming also 'emasculating' or 'intimidating.' For the right partner, I won't be. I am not looking to build a collection of fair to middling connections, partnership doesn't rhyme with feeling parental. That said, I like to have a good time, meet new people and explore uncharted waters -- whether those lead to romance or not.
That's a start... if you're intrigued, introduce yourself.
[PS - "Likes" and "winks" are flattering, but a nicely worded message invites a response.]
