I have my Masters degree in Forensic Psychology. My time is limited to be in a relationship, so skip the pretense, and it's all good. I value honesty more than anything else and an outstanding sense of humor. I'm not hard to please, and for the right man I will go to the ends of the earth.
Communication is very important in relationships, and people can learn a great deal through partners that is, if they are willing to undergo a little self-examination. If you don't like others to probe your secrets and feel embarrassed at displays of emotion (yours or others') we will not be on the same page. I am looking for someone who can make me laugh and help me become more centered. I need a partner I can "bounce myself off of," one who will act as a mirror and reflect my own image back at me and therefore provide an objective viewpoint on my inner workings. All this would of course be reciprocal.
I see people for who they are and not for who I want them to be. I know and respect boundaries and communicate when and if they are crossed. When two people come together and both are ready to give, then I believe they both receive. I understand the importance of shadows and light in life, personalities, circumstances and environmental settings and believe that anything is possible if we can actively visualize and facilitate it into existence.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Going to the movies (if it is a rainy day) going for something to eat after and good conversation, perhaps about the movie. If it is warm and sunny I would enjoy long walks in any of the numerous parks in New York.
