I like traveling, hiking, restaurant hopping, camping, biking, and live music, but I don't define myself by those things nor do I define my mate by them. We should have fun, do things together, laugh a lot and enjoy one another's company in the short term and over the long haul. We should be best friends and look out for each other and have a nice balance of give and take. She should be strong yet giving and unselfish.
As far as having kids ... I'm at a point in my life and in a frame of mind where it's okay if I do, and okay if I don't. I do have prior experience in a past relationship where I lived with and helped raise 3 young children for over 6 years.
And as far as not having been married ... it's just turned out that way, so far. Like most people on this site, I've been in long-term committed relationships. They just happened not to end in divorce.
I'm totally independent and capable of doing things on my own, but it would really be nice to have a partner to do things with, to share with, to push one another to achieve bigger and better, and to just enjoy life with.
