Life is great. Kids healthy; job fun and rewarding; golf handicap at lifetime low (8). So what could make it better?
A relationship where we two simply "get" one another. Meaning what? That we look forward to giving and receiving a back rub/foot massage. That we kiss well and often. That we're excited about traveling to Europe together and sharing conversations about the people we watch/meet, the food we find/eat, the architecture we see, the plays/concerts we attend.
An insight into me. I get more satisfaction from having a client go home from my clinic understanding the answer to the problem they brought their pet in to see me for than I do from performing an intricate surgery. So, for me it's more about the intangible (caring, sharing, listening, giving) than the tangible (the car, the bling). I can be funny, serious, or seriously funny.
I think that the building blocks for a relationship are mutual respect, honesty, communication, and trust. The Golden Rule works for me.
Qualities I hope we both possess: intellectual curiosity; honesty; wit; trust; smarts (street and book); generosity. Athleticism, a sense of humor, and a love of animals are important to me. I'm very active (do a 5 mile beach walk with my dog most days, play golf often), and hope you are too.
It's more relevant to me how we mesh in person than what's contained in our profiles. We can both save a lot of time by an in-person conversation rather than a continuous exchange of emails.
Since honesty is utmost, my age in dog years is 9.
