I live a peaceful life—I like it that way.
I live a happy life—I like it that way.
I live a healthy life—I like it that way.
I live a life with zero drama, games or BS—I like it that way.
The aforementioned—I intend to keep that way, always.
I truly love life—laughing, learning, living and growing. Humor & laughing are absolute necessities, and that banter back and forth is a must. I still have the energy, splendor & vigor of a child, so being playful, silly & that innocence is still strong with me.
I'll reiterate this... I LOVE to joke around, be silly—from slapstick to sarcasm (I'm a Chicagoan, I like my sarcasm with a side of sarcasm & a smile). I'm a deeply passionate person about life & love, so I refuse to be with someone who doesn't understand that one can be silly and have fun in life, at the same time still being professional, rock solid & care passionately about people, life & issues.
Life, to me, is simple. It just makes sense, it's not tough to figure out & live happily.
I do not get wrapped up in problems, and when bad things occur, I take control of them, own them and turn them into positive growth points.
I am who I am ever-changing, and a completely open book, to be written in—constantly growing & evolving, change is a constant, in other words.
I always hear people say, "I don't want someone to change me", I say, forget that, you're supposed to change each other. More aptly put, people are supposed to change with one-another, we're supposed to grow together, growth is change! So if you're not OK with learning new things in life and changing your perspectives, we just won't click.
I love the beach, I love being active, I love being & staying healthy, and yet I can eat decadently & drink wine, etc… and not worry about it.
I love being out and about, wherever, whenever, however—it doesn't matter, I just love to be out seeing/doing things.
I'm not a picky person when it comes to life, I could be anywhere and make an amazing & fun time of it.
I believe in love, true love. powerful & deep love.
I give myself to others freely, and at the same rate, I can pull myself away at the drop of a hat when I see bulls*it or games coming my way. You know the childish games I'm talking about, come on, this is LA.
I'll fight for you and your honor, always, and I hope that you'd have my back just the same.
You'll ALWAYS know where I'm coming from, I don't mince words or sugar coat things. I do what I say and say what I mean.
I'm a man of honor, nobility & chivalry, if you don't know what those are, moreover don't respect them, we will not click.
I know a REAL & good woman when she comes along, and I'll make it 1000% evident that I'm interested, I don't play the "rules" game, or play silly little phone tag games like many people do, if I like you & want to see you, I'm going to show it. If that scares you, good luck to you.
I try not to judge, albeit difficult at times, however so long as one is not hurting others and is truly a good steward to the planet, people & animals, I care not what they believe. I despise hypocrisy. I ask for, from people, nothing more than, but at least that which I can give, in any type of relationship.
I think differently, very worldly and I'm a researcher & learner by definition. I look at the world and I see a better place for all, and I truly believe that we all do better when we all do better. If you know what I mean by that, we just may click on many levels.
While quotes do not encapsulate the essence of who I am, the following is GREAT descriptor of me and how I do & always have lived my life:
"I am nobody. I don't belong to any nation, I don't belong to any religion, I don't belong to any political party. I am simply an individual, the way existence created me. I have kept myself absolutely uninfluenced by any idiotic ideology - religious, political, social, financial. And the miracle is that because I am not burdened with all these glasses on my eyes, and curtains before me, I can see clearly."
b]What I would find beautiful, in "us"...
That CLICK! You know that energy two people share, when others are just drawn to the energy & bond between the two of us? Yes, THAT! The desire to explore one-another in every facet, daily. Communication in boundless capacities. The trust that we can put our very last breath in one-another's hands and we'd both be completely safe, always. Crazy, fun humor, silliness & playfulness with one-another that'll last 'til we're that old couple which we currently swoon over. Two strong & self-aware people letting go of the BS society dictates and just being together, loving one-another & sharing with each other. It should be simple, however, it's not easy finding someone that self-connected.
Let's just go have a good time & LAUGH, laugh til our tummies hurt. Let go of the predisposed nonsense. Or let's do something active... and laugh. Let's go hiking, drink sangria, jog on the beach, beach volleyball, an art show, a concert... anything fun!
