I am an independent, confident professional, great conversationalist, and am told my sense of humor is unparalleled (laughing most at myself!). I have an unquiet, inquisitive mind that constantly seeks answers to various questions and dilemmas, always coming up with new and novel ways of thinking about things (while learning how little I know). I enjoy cruises, playing Chopin and a romantic dinner along with sharing simple pleasures with someone. I am loyal and honest to a fault, to the extent others might not always welcomed the candor they claim to seek. I am very expressive, sensual and a total incurable romantic (having to fight the urge as I learn about potential for a relationship in the context of a dispassionate friendship). I am extremely passionate, affectionate, transparent, open in communicating feelings, affirming and enjoy pleasing. I am not lonely, but I find that experiences such as travel, eating out, movies, or and simple pleasures like a walk on the beach are much richer when they can be shared.
I lost my soul-mate of 30 years, two years ago. Most say my undying love and commitment, providing home health care for years, is indicative of my character, my greatest asset. My loss has deepen my thoughts on meaning and purpose of life , which for me is lacking without a partner. I am a committed follower of Christ and His Golden Rule (often apologizing when I fail here). However, I'm liberal in theology. though tolerate various beliefs, enjoying discussion on differing perspectives (with no agenda to change each other). Hopefully we are always open to learning from each other. I also find that primary goals of only living for personal pleasure are not enough, and want to be with someone who is also committed to giving back.
