I am passionate, aim towards honesty, humility, quick study, been around the block of life, traveled, very musical,well read, spiritually seeking, funny, good neshama, I do photography, construction, real estate, love animals, spontaneous, already worked out most 'issues'. I am also anything but boring. What do I want: Of course my beshert, who does not want that? But I want to know someone first. this may take time. So if it turns out to be only a friend, also good. There are so many variables. Chemistry, background, old souls and much else besides. Who can relate with a Jewish cowboy patriotic, old hippie. Complicated, perhaps, but I am about being simple nowadays. I have pedigrees and references, but you can't have them up front. Talk a lot & can listen. (What you said, and what I heard--important concept) In case this is important, I am younger looking, acting than my years, am of average build, not short, not tall, but I am 4 inches taller when lying down. I have children who do not live with me. I am selling myself? Not really because there may be someone with very similar profile, and they would be a completely different being. I am completely new to this type of adventure. Someone could meet 50 people before they met someone truly compatible. I believe that if Hashem wants people to meet then that is beshert. I won't have to lurk around on here for very long no matter the outcome. The action is mine, the outcome is in G-ds hands.
