Once upon a time…it was NOT a dark and stormy night…The dark and stormy feelings were over, giving me the bold, clean-slate mindset to give online dating a trial. It is no longer a consideration. It didn’t help, though I did have interesting first encounters nearby with several. Perhaps the info I included in the profile was lacking in a major way, but if I were intrigued enough beyond the first date, the fella wasn’t or vice-versa. What worked for me was getting to the point where I enjoyed my own company going places and doing activities that would increase my interactions with folks I had a little bit in common with, thereby increasing those life connections recognized as so important in maintaining a healthy, happy life. I didn’t want to compromise my values, nor did I want to lead someone on, using their company for just that when I felt I needed it. That approach worked without even realizing I was using one.
It might be fun to show this to him and see if it would have made him seek additional information, or if I had unintentionally composed a misleading one now that he knows me well. At any rate, it is a part of my journey. I want to keep it.
I love exploring places old and new…outdoors and in…parks, trails, natural wonders, odd museums. There is no need to be on the go all the time, though. I can explore from my favorite chair via books and magazines. Healthy living and healthy thinking are important to me, so I can remain active and adventurous, and of service to family and friends when needed. I love color, and I think I am a colorful soul, a bit spontaneous though appreciative of beneficial routines. Solitude doesn’t bother me when I have someone to share with later.
Shared priorities of healthy living and healthy thinking would be great, along with a love of travel. It would be great to spend time with friends and family as well as time as a couple, to maintain individual interests as well as shared ones in a balanced way. Integrity is paramount. I appreciate free spirits who don’t necessarily have to agree with me about everything to enjoy my company. It is important to have the freedom to continue to evolve as the person I was meant to be, and to have a companion who wants the same.
I am intrigued by self-sufficiency, though I in no way live like that. I find myself reading a lot about growing my own food, having a home supplemented by solar power. Wish I understood how to build a solar panel and then how to store the energy. I love reading, writing, learning new things, and lively discussions about whatever comes up.
