Hello everybody, hope you are all doing well - and enjoying life! OK, - here's what's most important to me in life: (1) the pursuit of health within the four major areas of life (i.e., physical, mental, spiritual, and social), (2) most of the people who are currently in my life - amazing and inspiring characters!, (3), giving back to those who have not had the amazing people and/or experiences that I have been blessed with, (4) leaving the world a little bit better than how it was before I got here.
About dating - my friends and family all think that I am TOO PICKY with who I date. I tell them that I simply don't have the time to hang out too much with people who I am not excited/passionate about. So, here are the 5 MAJOR CHARACTERISTICS OF MY "DREAM WOMAN" - check 'em out: she is (1) at least somewhat interested in pursuing mental and physical health, (2) good with people, enjoys talking with others, and is a pretty sweet person, (3) mostly positive about life, but also realistic and grounded, (4) passionate about something in life - and enjoys doing some things on her own (doesn't always need me around), and (5) physically attractive (not necessarily "hot", but at least cute) - although #5 is important to me, it is certainly not everything. I have dated a few physically beautiful women who did not have any of the other 4 characteristics listed above, and although I usually had fun with them, I could not seriously consider anything long-term with them. Just not my bag, baby! Anyway, nobody's perfect in life, I certianly know I have my flaws, but that's what I look for in a woman. What do you look for in a man?

Difficult to say - depends on what the woman and I have in common in terms of what we like to do.
