I think, maybe the best way to describe myself is describing what I'm looking for. CHEMISTRY! Physical, mental, emotional...CHEMISTR Y! You can't put your finger on it, but it's there. It's the smell of your partner on your pillow that reminds you of her, and you never want to fade (I’m very big on smell, and believe it’s the strongest attraction between two people).
I consider myself honest, passionate, emotionally sensitive to others, sarcastic to a fault, and respectful…and that's what I'm looking for in a partner.
I value compromise, understanding, honesty and communication above all else. I love wit and a sense of humor (because I’m extremely funny…sans the awful puns that you may need to get used to). You should feel comfortable telling me what's on your mind, and I should be able to as well. I have a profound respect for women and appreciate an equal partnership (mom had “a little” influence in that). You should be independent and goal oriented. I want someone who strives for something in their life, and isn't content to settle. I want to grow with a person whom I have common interests, morals, ideologies and someone I can learn from, someone I can support in bad times, and who supports me. I would love to be around someone who reads the New York Times on occasion, and enjoys talking about everything from politics to movies...a woman who knows what's happening in the world, with an opinion, but isn't so set in it, that she wouldn't listen to another. I want a woman who can adapt to her surroundings. I consider myself emotionally sensitive to others, and I think that's a very attractive attribute...knowing when to listen and when to offer your thoughts. I am Jewish, but I am much more of a spiritual person and can appreciate different beliefs. I've lived long enough to know that religious beliefs aren't as important as respecting each other and appreciating the differences in a partner as much as the similarities. I want a family one day...sooner than later if the right person comes along.
I would prefer nice dinners or lounges to dance clubs, a quiet evening with netflix rather than brave the crowds on opening weekend. I love riding my bike, but have an urge to try yoga. I want to learn anything that interests me and sometimes be forced out of my comfort zone. I want to learn about what interests you and what makes you happy. I have great friends, and great family, and want to add a great love to that core. Okay…I’ll take a breath now.
Alright, if you've made it this far, then I'm glad I still have your attention. I'm really just looking for that connection we're all looking for that person who comes along and you can just see it…everything. Maybe too much to ask, but let's give it a try.
