Who I am and who I want is so specific that if it is you, then I can't begin to describe you, as you are indescribably uniquely you, whom I can't imagine right now. For all I know, you love (fill in the blank), which I happen to hate. But it doesn't matter, because we have become the kind of friends who get each other even when we don't get each other. What matters are those things like being kind and committed to making something work. I have to be able to make you laugh or all is lost. Being active, adventurous, and passionate is important as is being attentive and loving. Most of all, I am looking for a man who knows that what he has been through so far has sculpted him into a better version of who he used to be, and looks forward to sharing that with his best friend who has his back and every other part of him!
But, if we must talk of specifics....my personal key words would include energetic, (but also happy to veg), authentic (read: very real) transparent, passionate (yes, that, too, but also about life and those things of most importance), kind, loving, insightful, committed, loyal (extremely), eclectic, intelligent, warm, creative, nature-loving (ok, who isn't, but still...) and spiritual...this is not in heirarchical order!
I love great conversation and am hoping to meet the man whom I really connect with, physically, emotionally, spiritually...and most of all as a friend!...who wants the same things in life--here and in eternity---who loves to laugh and appreciates that I am SO low maintenance when it comes to "things." (Bring me a Snickers once in awhile and I am happy!) Am pretty insightful myself and really love that in a man! Into the Five Love Languages as a way of showing love that actually has real meaning for the other person....I extremely value the part of you that makes you a bit off center...non-cookie-cutter, but full of kindness and authenticity.
Am I asking too much??! Don't think so. Think you're out there somewhere and am willing to wait until we find each other:) (OK, so I am still a bit of a romantic, but also super practical!)
