I'd much rather meet a like-minded man in a class or at a conference. Getting to know each other and "clicking" would be spontaneous and occur naturally as we went about the business of being in the situation we had both chosen. I think a lot of us would like to meet a special someone that way. But it does leave a lot to chance, and it's not as if I have a lot of time to be going to classes and conferences. So I'm trying out online dating. What am I like? Warm, witty, fun, kind, compassionate, understanding, nurturing, insightful, bright, brave, and creative. I've been on a path of psychological and spiritual growth since my teens. Insofar as it is possible, I plan to continue on that path until the last day I'm hanging out in this body. My life will continue to be meaningful and mostly good whether or not I enter into another relationship with a special someone. But I'd like to find a man (who I find a good fit for me and who finds me a good fit for him) to grow in intimacy with. I don't like playing relationship games and would expect both of us to invest time and energy in open, honest, and respectful communication. I wear white shoes after Labor Day and don't make being conventional a priority.
