“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
I will not only open the door for you, but clean the snow off your car. I learned what it meant to be a man from my father, but it was my mother who raised me to be a gentleman. I live a balanced life that includes meditation, reading, learning, altruism, health, travel and my beautiful children.
I'm truly gifted with a toaster oven, wash all my clothes in cold water, but not entirely sure how to change a tire. I'm intelligent, confident, driven, successful, funny, kind and thoughtful. In short, I am amazing (but then again who isn't here?).
Honesty, integrity, loyalty and intelligence along with a sense of humor are the basic elements of what I most value in another. With that said, a "connection" for me comes from the attraction to the small idiosyncrasies of another's nature. The pitch of your laugh; your walk; the shape of your smile; the light, intelligence and compassion in your eyes.. Most of these I can't enumerate and/or describe as I'm not necessarily conscious of them and certainly could never articulate them here in detail. It's that "something" and I know it when I see it and more importantly when I feel it
