I am a passionate person in pretty much all aspects of my life: job, kids, and friendships. I have a good idea of who I am, strengths and weaknesses, but I'm constantly learning.
While my kids are, of course, the most important thing in my life, I'm not looking for a dad for them. I certainly would like for them to have another male role model who can show what it means to be a man who is loving and caring and smart and funny. I think all girls need that in their lives - including me.
I know that I need to be with someone who is outgoing and likes to make plans. Passivity is a huge turn off for me.
I like doing things that are unique or engaging. When I get the chance, I love to see live music or theater - it combines passion and talent being shared by someone - and I think that is a blast. Given the pace of my life though, I am also content to stay home on the couch and watch a movie.
I was raised Jewish and am raising my daughters in that way, but I lean a bit toward Buddhist beliefs. I think perhaps kindness and compassion are the greatest gifts that one person can offer another, and valuing that over money or status is essential in a partner for me.
If you've read this far and you're still interested, please email me. Please note that, though age is just a number, place and time in life is real if you are considerably older, I don't think we are in the same place in life, and therefore, not a good match. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the canned "flirt."
