A good sense of humor with a love of ideas and literature and music. A good conversationalist but not overbearing. Open and curious about people and life and with the ability to be empathic. I value a relationship in which you yield to each other. I exercise 3 times a week, watch what I eat and while not skinny I am not fat. I get along well with people and enjoy being with friends. I am not a recluse. I am not a materialist. For me it is the inner life that is significant. The external world is important but what I feel and what my partner feels is important to me. Her willingness as well as mine to express what we are experiencing is important. Politically, I follow Thomas Jefferson. I am a professional in the medical world working as a psychotherapist in a hospice in Ft Myers, Fl. Also, I like bookstores, libraries, flea markets, dining out, good conversation, people who have a quick sense of humor.
