Passions:Music (listening and playing), exercise, the state of the world, wine, the mountains and beautiful places. I am MOST passionate about the woman I love, when there is a woman I love. :) For me, love must be mutual, honest and feel a strong, trusted connection. And that means, emotional and physical intimacy, acceptance, openness, companionship and sharing life together. Sure, we're all individuals, needing our own time, having and sharing our own separate thoughts and feelings, yet as humans, I believe in, and personally feel, the need for a deep committed relationship. I want to grow and develop spiritually with someone.What I'm looking for:One most important quality? That's tough... though I don't have an exact profile I'm looking for. It is how it all fits together.. and the fit includes appearance/demeanor, sexuality, intelligence, ability to care and be empathic and to let another care and be concurrently vulnerable and strong. To be able to see and trust the goodness in oneself and the other. To be able to hold and trust love, and to recognize a mutual connection when it exists. If the connection strengthens and is consistent, I'd like someone who can honor the connection and love, making it the foundation we stand upon, no matter what.
