I have strong hands and a soft touch, long legs and an easy stride, a big heart and even bigger ears (you know, for listening).
At times a little shy, quiet, even slightly melancholy; I'm mostly, though, an outgoing, gregarious, optimistic man with a genuine, ardent and occasionally delirious lust for life. A serious side, yes, but generally seeing both the lighter and far sides of life, with a dry, sarcastic wit and a bent, absurdist sense of humor (thank you, SCTV, Monty Python). Sometimes, little kids scold me for being"too"silly, the nerve!, they tend to like me though, I think they sense that I'm just like one of them, only bigger, goofier, and with (slightly) better table manners.
I believe that I possess some social grace, good etiquette and a sense of public decorum. I clean up well, can tie a perfect Windsor knot and even rock a tux. I also have some strong primal, earthy and pagan yearnings, a desire to be free and clear of this modern world and all it's trappings and just bask in the native and natural, even if for a brief spell.
Always striving for a practical and spiritual balance; equal parts gentleman and caveman, at times channeling both Sean Connery (an idol) and Homer Simpson (a fellow hopeless romantic).
I can seem a bit detached at times, not a bad thing actually (I can explain) , I'm usually, though, very open and accessible, fully present and engaged in the moment. I especially like it when that moment feels electric and actually seems to emit a kind of "buzzing" sound. Yes,really.
I do have an emotional vocabulary, and can express my thoughts and feelings with considerable depth. Don't worry though, I won't put on a pot of herbal tea, a cardigan, some vintage Cocteau Twins and get all touchy- feely about my innermost dreams and....feelings. ,unless you ask, then all bets are off, brave girl. I'd much rather get all touchy- feely about you.
While I care deeply for and about my family and close friends, I also know that one's empathy and compassion are universally needed, to be applied liberally when called for. I'm a hit-and-run humanitarian. I just like to help, as needed and then I'm gone, no desire for acknowledgement or gratitude.... OK, maybe a little pat on the head for a really big deed. I seem to thrive during times of great adversity, it tends to bring out the best in me.
I'm very inquisitive; time stops and my eyes grow big when at a museum, gallery, performance, or when I make a big or little discovery out in the city or nature or life. I say WOW a lot.
I readily admit to being a little odd, unusual and a non-conformist, but I can honestly say that it's authentic, and not an affectation. I also do not brake for the bourgeoisie,(I swerve at the last second)
I believe that we are all sovereign nations; one can't be the other, can't rule or inhabit the other, but we can meet at each other's borders and enjoy great diplomatic relations. Maybe form alliances. Issue dual-citizenship ?
I'm comfortable with myself, yet I also know that change is a given in life, especially within relationships. I'm not afraid of change and compromise; it calls upon our highest consciousness, ideals, courage and especially acceptance, given of free will.
I seek to... give... listen, learn, grow, enrich, comfort, touch, laugh, flirt, romance, warm, cheer, lift, inspire, cherish,value, imagine, be chivalrous, enjoy, stand by, empathize, respect, honor, support, accept, explore,defend, adore, admire, compliment, hold, create, help, compromise....you know, just the basics, A tall order, perhaps, but I'm a tall guy, and I wish to keep growing.
In search of butterflies and light with a woman of soul, substance, and a singular beauty who can see beyond a few pictures, and read past these few (?) words, who can trust her head, heart and soul.And who has never stopped believing that she is still a real princess, inside ... where it counts.
