Life is a journey. It is not about the destination, but the trip itself... the people and experiences along the way. Kindness, compassion, learning, laughter, insatiable curiosity, all add to the enjoyment. I have an open mind and my tastes are varied. I am not mean spirited, judgmental or prejudice. Know right from wrong, respect diversity and am not afraid of change. I can be adventurous and outgoing with a group but prefer the quiet intimacy of two. I believe the key to any successful relationship is a foundation built on open and honest communication! Once established, mutual interests, timing, combined with a zest for living and shared desires give this relationship the potential to turn in to something meaningful. It begins with a shared and common goal in life, to find that one who is compassionate, happy, loving, understanding and above all patient, in order to establish that which is described. I'm looking for that special friend with the right chemistry and blend of personalities rather than specifics and credentials. Laughter combined with sense of humor and dependability imperative. What I am looking for is the woman with a kind and gentle spirit who is loyal and honest. One who is willing to go the distance despite life's challenges. A woman who desires a friend lover and in time partner An exclusive arrangement that will allow us to know one another without the fear that there are others in the picture. I'm looking for the relationship that allows us to return to that certain closeness and understanding which I believe exists. The journey of many miles begins with just one step. Care to risk it.
