To surprise you with small acts of kindness, or words of appreciation when you don’t necessarily expect it. A gentleman who finds joy in caring for his woman, because this is what brings a gentleman joy. Covering her feet when she gets a bit chilly on the sofa, for example, with a wink and a gleam in his eye that conveys his love. It is so much fun doing those small things that make life sweet. Shared meals--eating alone is sooo boring--and sharing conversation, about our day or whatever else. Sharing intimate moments. Doing what we do and knowing that there is a beloved in our shared life. I am very intelligent, with a playful side and a mischievous sense of humor. I am also wise and insightful. I teach skills of interpersonal communication for a living, and am empathic, and seek the same in a woman. I dont fight dirty. I listen and seek to understand and expect the same in turn and this is how we work things out. Shame, blame, disrespect and condemnation are deal breakers. I enjoy a good book, a good movie, romantic walks, a trip along the coast, and cuddling up in the evening and having good conversation. I seek a woman to love and care for, and to be loved and cared for by. I grew up Orthodox, am very well educated Jewishly, and now have a bit of traditional practice but really am much more spiritual. Jewish spiritual teachings guide me--honesty, compassion, honoring people, awareness of the One and that there is a bigger picture. In my better moments, you will find grace and nobility of spirit. I am fine if you have children. I am fine if you are successful, smart, wealthy or any other achievement. You don't have to dumb down for me or minimize yourself. I celebrate your achievements. Here is what matters--that you respect the man you are with and enjoy being treated like a lady. Walk into the house and relax into your feminine essence. I am a mentsch seeking a fine woman to care for, cherish, and together build a loving, stable home.
