I like people who are fundamentally considerate and kind.
In my 'old age', I guess I've become more focused on treating others WITH love, rather than needing to be IN love. I mean being in love would be great, but I just don't think it's something one can push. If it happens, you're lucky; if not, just go about enjoying your life and trying to be kind.
Intelligent, educated, well-read, funny, nature boy, honest, genuine, considerate, soulful, passionate, sensual, charming .. humble.. ;)
Life is too short to go through it not feeling sexy most of the time.
I'm a nerd and a quasi-hedonist.
I get-off on intellectual stimulation and like being liberally educated.
I appreciate and greatly enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
I enjoy improving mind and body.
Life is celebration and an adventure. I'm down for anything.
No unnecessary drama please. Just joy and love. Life's too short.
I'm really good peeps.
You be too.
“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” - Louise Erdrich (The Painted Drum)
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good, and the very gentle, and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too, but there will be no special hurry.” - Ernest Hemingway

No one is more romantic than a cynic. - Nora Ephron
You should message me if
.. you have a heart the size of a small planet, you're disconcertingly smart, wickedly funny, preternaturally gorgeous, and some kind of unidentifiably rabid creature in bed.
It could happen.
