I am kind, insightful and incredibly patient in most situations. I don't get aggravated with lines in the grocery store or how you decide to fold clothes! I love bookstores and will be interested in knowing what you enjoy reading. (You'll find mostly modern fiction on my nightstand.) I volunteer my time for Jewish causes and I like a guy who demonstrates his compassion and uses his strength to help the world. I strive to do the right thing but I am not a perfect person and am not expecting you to be perfect either.
I'm a casual person, not fussy, and let most things roll off my back, but I have an organized mind and tend to think through situations. While I have been and am independent, I look to a partner who is willing to offer a non-judgmental opinion and concrete suggestions on how to fix whatever is broken (physical or emotional) but I am also a good communicator and will let you know if I just want you to listen without solving it for me. Sometimes all I need is your arms around me.
We should laugh, often, with each other, not at each other.
I have four young semi-adult children who still mess with my mind from time to time and I wouldn't have it any other way. I envision each of us embracing our families in ways large and small, but mostly enhancing these relationships, not trying to compete. At the same time, we are making sure to create our own new life and our families can see we are great together and are happy for us. Love rosy pictures!
Friends are also important to me and I connect easily with people. It is important to me that we can socialize with each other's people, enjoy their company, and also be able to respect that we each have time to separate with these friends on occasion.
