I have now been living in the Ottawa area for the last few years, it's as good a place as any to hang a hat.
I am looking for quality not quantity in any relationship...by this I mean I am looking for friendship first and foremost. I have learned that jumping into anything too quickly is most often a mistake.
I have a beautiful fourteen year old boy who I adore.
As far as goals and aspirations are concerned, I want to continue to be happy. This does it for me, as do candles, food and wine! I have learned that happiness comes when you have given of yourself, that is when the returns are greatest! Travel figures prominently and I want very much to know other cultures on a meaningful level.
I love music, have studied it both formally and on on my own. Really dig it! Love movies, good books, dancing, cooking, dining out. You know, all the fun stuff. I am very independant and am looking for a similar type of fella. I am not looking for a co-habitator nor do I long to see a ring on my finger. I am looking for someone who would want my companionship specifically, not someone who is simply looking to replace his last companion. This is really important. He must be very comfortable being alone sometimes. As much as it might seem to many of us that a partner is necessary regardless of the quality of the relationship this is in no way an interest of mine. I am content and happy with myself as a person, this achievement has taken a lifetime...I believe it is supposed to, and I do consider it an achievement! Peace of mind is precious and hard won, not something to squander. I am hoping one day to find someone who accepts and hopefully adores me for exactly who and what I am. Of course this gift will be returned to that person in kind. I am an interesting person who has lead an interesting life and who has entertained some very interesting thoughts and ideas. I am looking for someone who has a limitless imagination, who is able to laugh without hesitation, who is bright and who possesses a well developed humility. You must enjoy the feeling of fitness, in both body and mind. You must be able to love and to feel reverence and awe for the natural beauty we have the honour of existing in. You must respect nature. Being with a kind man who has a generous spirit with lots of love and compassion in his heart for all things is absolutely breathtaking! I will not be able to resist a man with these qualities!
I am looking for someone who is big enough to support me in my endeavours, in the sense that he should believe in what I do. I will in turn support yours with all that I have. I am looking for a friend to go out to dinner with, watch movies with, enjoy all manner of outdoor activities with. Laughing till you cry is about the best activity of all though! If you like to laugh, are happy with who you've brought yourself up to be and enjoy a good adventure then I would really love to meet you. I really love an evening in, popping a cork and cooking and talking about everything. At the same time I really love to be outside, especially in crazy weather. I will participate in any outdoor activity. Are you a youthful, spirited fellow who might enjoy the same?
All of my pictures have been taken within the last two years. Yes, I know I look very young for my age. I have my parents to thank for that! Good-luck to you all and have fun!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first date is definately a coffee date. The second could be a dinner together, the third could be the moon!
