A Little Bit About Me
-I am not a paying member, please keeping reading to end of para, thanks - I am a hopeful romantic, atypical male, sensitive and a bit old fashioned. I value honor, integrity, grace, courtship, and to be an all and out gentleman?to communicate well and often, to keep my word, to write poetry to her, to be gentle and true, to be honest, and to be transparent and consistent. To me being romantic means all these things?it is about devotion and delight in each others? company. It also means knowing when your better half needs some space, too. Being romantic is great but I do understand that marriage is a serious union which requires both husband and wife to work hard at it, every single day. If you do, there is no substitute for the feeling when the bonds of friendship are intertwined with mutual adoration. Being hopelessly in love is not what sustains a union, but it is everything else?sharing the ups and downs of life, to encourage and support each other, to be sensitive to your partner?s needs, to notice and acknowledge the little and big things we do for each other and to celebrate your partner?to truly understand that in her happiness lays yours. Does love at first sight exist? I would be content with liking my partner with all my heart and to learn how her nuances and imperfections make me fall in love with her every day for the rest of my life.
What I Am Looking For
I am looking for a down to earth woman who is interested in sharing a journey--in our daily lives, in our dreams--both the daydreaming and the realized kind, in conversations, in moments unspoken, in things we do together, in intimacy, in raising a family and perhaps most importantly, to be a life-long companion. I am looking for a woman who will happily (at least most of the time?after all, we are human) share the mundane and the exciting, the perfunctory and the adventurous, the routines and the idiosyncrasies and have a sense of humor to boot. In other words, a relationship of depth, delight, reflection, nuance and naughtiness (beware; I do a practical joke now and then :). And down to earth does not mean unsophisticated in the ways of the world. It means that mind games are not for me.
