ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Couldn't tell you whether I'm more right or left brain, more analytical or creative, etc., there's a bit of a mix in there rather than an either/or thing going on. That's kinda how I think. Life appears to me more grey than black and white. There is always more than one point of view, and there are always fresh views and new horizons in this life.

Some of that comes from travel and my interest in languages. I've lived in a several different countries--East and West. Sometimes a student; sometimes a tourist; sometimes a soldier; always just me.

Working in finance/real estate area lately. Though my background is mostly liberal arts: English, Philosophy, Linguistics, Film, Theater.

I think a lot about curiosity; beauty; mistakes/experience/wisdom; what makes me tick; reality and perception; ... your typical Philosophy topics: Aesthetics, Ethics, Metaphysics, Ontology, Logic, etc.

Over the past few years I've had some fun taking a sledgehammer to some properties and bringing them into the 21st century. I'm in a 12 step group for HGTV porn. Mostly recovered.

So who would I like to connect with on Match? Probably someone who is somewhat self aware; able to trust themselves and others; doesn't feel threatened by different perspectives; tries her best to be open and communicative (as far as I know, none of us can read minds; although I've met some who claim to, or have expected me to have some sort of ESP--not fun). Hmm ... did I mention a curiosity about the world? Well, maybe I'll add some stuff later. Overall though, balance is pretty attractive.

Physically? Yeah, that too. I'll know.

You can be yourself and let others be themselves.
You prefer to appreciate Life as a rich tapestry of colors, rather than merely black and white.

You can have fun with makeup, while being comfortable without it--I honestly find myself attracted to women who tend to be gorgeous without makeup...at least as far as I'm concerned.

You understand that conflict doesn't have to be abusive--verbally, psychologically, emotionally. And conflict doesn't have to be avoided either. We can just let it fall somewhere in between extremes. I believe there is such a thing as healthy conflict.

Body, mind, soul ... what floats your boat? Do you know what you like--what nurtures you?
Do you ask yourself what makes you tick? Are you curious about the world, others and yourself?

As far as late-late nightlife, you like to go out, but it's probably not a regular thing. I'm used to catching up on sleep, but I hate feeling like I've been through five different time zones by the end of the week.

You enjoy children. You think you're in a good place. You want to stay in a good place. You want a relationship with all that it can offer, including support, connection, respect, trust, independence, give-and-take. And, of course, you can accept the occupational hazards of being human and being with someone else who is also human.

You share a strong desire to be a parent and enjoy the challenges and rewards that come with our humble attempts to believe in and support children, as well as one another.

P.S. I know I'm interested in having a family. I forget the author who described the aspiration of a parent to be "a worthy shepherd". It's noble enterprise that demands humility, not perfection; promises no guarantees, but often proves to be its own reward. So just sayin' ... a shared interest in a family.
