ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

Here's a decision funnel for you:
- You believe men and women are political, economic, and social equals. But of course.
- You're looking for engagement, a whole bunch of giving as well as getting, a real partnership, building something joyful, exceptional.
- You're hoping this is the relationship that carries you through to the end.

So far so good?

At 72, my grandfather met a cute little number - a never-married, recently retired 65 year old high school English teacher. They fell crazy in love, spent 30 years like newlyweds. (My grandfather lived to be 109.) One rational reason why I haven't given up yet.

Honest and direct, whole-hearted, intuitive, empathic, quick to laugh, passionate about living consciously and well. Come from a family where academics trumped athletics - expressive, visually attuned folks, creators and 'do-ers' who take pride in what they've accomplished on any given day, who naturally gravitate to studios and workshops. Clueless re: pop culture - don't own a tv, malls depress me. News comes from NPR and the NYT - I prefer progressive thinking to conventional wisdom. Don't ski, play golf or tennis (a 30-year marriage taught me the best relationships leave room for non-shared pursuits) but thrive outdoors - kayaking, swimming, planting, biking/walking/hiking anywhere. A 'toucher' when conversing, a spontaneous smoocher, quick to show appreciation for kindness and emotional generosity, my partner will never lack for attention, affection, stuff to laugh about. Financially independent - the career's been good to me - have raised two adult daughters to be critical thinkers, ethical, kind people.

Guys I find attractive are openly warm, kind men who laugh throughout the day, seeing the world and the humans therein both nuts and amusing. I like men who, though they've experienced some the darkness in the world, understand it's our job as adults to rise above sarcasm, cynicism, to help build a sweet life for those we care about. I respect guys who explore differences to find common ground rather than to win arguments, who read widely, consider alternate points of view, take it all in for consideration.

I don't expect the cosmos has conspired to posit my special guy conveniently in the next town over: I do expect to travel to spend time together. Looking forward to seeing new places, meeting new people.
