I'm a 39 year old college educated male looking for a serious, long-term relationship. I'm 5'8" tall and weigh 180 lbs. I'm cannabis/420 friendly, though I don't consume any alcohol. Not an alcoholic, I actually have an allergic reaction. I'm currently fixing my house to put up for sale. I want to leave the Yakima valley, but not certain yet where I'll plant roots. I was honestly trying to find my partner before moving again so we could find a place together. My work life involves restoring old VWs and I also work as an artist on the side. I have a wide range of interests, but mostly enjoy being out in nature or being at home with my family, which right now is just 2 big dogs. But enough about me...
My dream woman is a down to earth, affectionate, intelligent, sexy, cute, hardworking person who sees a family in the future. You have your life together, pay your own bills, don't need my help in any way shape or form to stand on your own feet. After all, we've lived this long without each other. You're much more homebody than socialite. You're an absolute tiger in the bedroom. You are honest, loyal and true above all things. You understand that dedication to each other is paramount and you are willing to follow your heart if the connection between us feels right.
You are not looking for the insta-relationship. You are aware of the media/hollywood ideals regarding romance and you see through that shit. You agree that physical attraction is just one component of attraction. You are seeking a serious, dedicated, life-long partner and understand this is born from the foundation of friendship. Cultivating such a bond will take time, and you are able and willing to develop things naturally. This is to say, you're not going to fall insanely in love with me when we meet, or declare your unending devotion after our third date.
Other than that I'm open to dating anyone. I do have my preferences of course, but any age, race, shape. I'm looking for a deeper connection beyond the exterior. Just be sincere and be yourself.
I think an easy outside stroll somewhere, a nice meal, something simple and low key where we can talk.
