I am looking for the perfect guy, perfect for me that is. I'm really a happy person and love my life tremendously. I have a great family, a great spirit, a great attitude and just an all around great life. I wouldn't want it to change for the world except if I were to meet that one guy that I just can't live without. That one guy I am so crazy about that I want to give up all my free time and independence (or most of it, anyway) to spend time with him. He makes my world even brighter than it is now and we decide it's us against the world, through thick and thin. Here we go . . now how cool would that be? He hasn't come into my life yet but if he does, well . . . wow. The biggest attraction for me is intellect, as long as the physical chemistry is there. I seek your advice and value your opinion. A sense of humor probably ranks next as I love to laugh and do it very often. I enjoy the simple things, kindness and respect are everything. You are physically active and enjoy sports as I do very much and want someone to play with. There are still many places in this world that I would like to see and experience and hopefully you do too. I can be myself and not say anything or say everything that comes to my mind. It doesn't matter because at the core of the relationship is commitment, devotion and attraction, all of which are not variables. I get that wonderful feeling every time I am with you and when I am with you I feel safe and protected. I do not believe a relationship is work, well a good relationship anyway. Life is full of struggles and I want my relationship to be my haven, the one thing I can count on to inspire and invigorate me and do the same for you. Please, don't sweat the small stuff. We all know by now there is no formula. Once in a rare while, someone walks into your life that not only dazzles you but "gets" you and you "get" them. I will wait, promise. On a side note: persistence is a good thing with me, so if you don't get a response the first time, try again. Also, NO currently separated and please live in Manhattan.
