ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am looking for one amazing woman who would like to accompany me on this journey called life, who would be interested in starting a family together. I've been single for far too long and I'm not getting any younger, so it's high time to do something about this situation. I'm not interested in dating for the sake of dating, or just to stave off boredom; I want a much more meaningful relationship that runs deeper than that, which will last and endure over time. Perhaps it's a lofty goal in these fast-paced days of instant gratification and loosely-made commitments, but I still believe that it's one worth striving for. Of course, there are all kinds of factors that come into play in a relationship and it can be a challenge for two people who are well suited for a life together to find each other, but there's only one way for that to happen - to just keep looking until they find one another.

Although I'm a tech guy by trade and a nerd by nature, I'm also a hippie at heart, an idealistic optimist tempered by realism, a tinkerer and troubleshooter, a linguaphile, an east coast transplant but a Californian by choice, a world traveler, a musician, a feminist (yes, you read that right), an activist for social justice, and occasionally a bit of a goofy dork. I suppose that's a bit of an eclectic mix, but that's kind of what I am. I tend to be fairly open-minded and I generally try to be considerate of others; that's not to say that I'm a pushover, I just choose to treat people with a basic level of respect and humanity. As tolerant as I generally am though, I admit that I have little patience for blatant stupidity, religious zealotry, bad driving and neoconservatism. When it comes to relationships, I'm a kind, caring, thoughtful, sensitive, loyal person, and I cherish the private moments of affection and sensuality. My years have taught me that this kind of intimacy is best enjoyed with someone with whom there is a mutual attraction; I've found that one night stands and hookups are inherently unfulfilling and they leave little more than an empty feeling afterwards, which is why I want something more meaningful and lasting.

I find that I'm most attracted to an intelligent woman who thinks for herself, who dares to go against the flow when warranted, who is firm in her convictions, but at the same time who is also open-minded enough to at least consider other ideas and evaluate them based on their merits or shortcomings, rather than measuring them against a rigid ideology. Of course, a sense of humor is always a good thing, and a woman with a wry smile and a slight mischievous streak can be charming. Physically I'm attracted to a woman who has some curves - not scary skinny, nor unhealthily overweight, but someone who is fit, yet still cuddly and huggable. Pluses for me include brown eyes, freckles, speaking multiple languages, a zest for travel, and a penchant for mechanical things - but these are not requirements by any means. To me, the most important and attractive characteristics of a woman are a kind heart, a sharp intellect, a wise mind, a caring soul, and a zest for life. However, I do have to draw the line at cigarettes, alcoholism and hard drugs though, because I'm not willing to be with someone who thinks it's fine to risk her own health and longevity for some small modicum of temporary pleasure. Drinking in moderation and/or using cannabis are fine by me though, as I don't consider those to be detrimental, as long as they're used responsibly. After all, I would like to spend as many years as I can with the right woman, once I finally find her.

If the things I've written here resonate with you, and you think there's a good chance that we might be well suited for one another, I'd enjoy hearing from you, so please feel free to send me a wink or a note. In any event, thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I wish you the best of luck in your search!
