Pay no mind to the 'psychological profile' - it's way off off. Guess their algorithms aren't that robust.
The Dalai Lama says it is important to have a warm heart. It is a goal I continue to work towards. It would be grand to find someone on a similar quest and share the journey for a lifetime. I believe that's best accomplished by starting as friends and allowing love to grow, if it will.
What is a warm heart? One that has no room for bigotry, which does believe that we are our brothers' keepers, which does not favour saving tax dollars over social justice.
Before you read further, check out the Myers-Briggs ENTP personality. I'm one of them. Not a lot of people can handle me - but it's mega fun with the ones who can.
You have to interest me vertically for me to become interested in you horizontally. That's just how I roll. I'm a bright chick and I need an intellectual match. I'm also spiritual; intellect and spirituality are not mutually exclusive - one of the most spiritual people I know is a theoretical physicist. I relate to the mysticism in Hesse's books (Hermann, that is). That would be nice to share.
The world is filled with minutiae, with material things, with worldly problems - we cannot allow ourselves to be dragged into them to the point where we lose our deeper selves. I have been in relationships with people who do not understand this - I cannot and will not be again.
I am not sporty nor outdoorsy. That said, I love nothing more than being outside in spring, summer, and fall listening to music or going to festivals. I walk for hours so I'm not a sloth/ However, I have no desire to camp ever again so if that's your first or main love, pass me by. My idea of 'vacation' involves pillows and flush toilets at minimum (though I have dealt with other types of 'sanitary' facilities and would do so again to see some parts of the world I've yet to see).
I am an optimist and a generally happy soul. I'm high in EQ. I am arty and a thinker; I enjoy intellectual exercise, will never stop learning, and am endlessly curious about the world. If you aren't, too, then we'd likely bore each other. When I say 'arty', sadly that doesn't mean I'm an artist. I would like to be but lack the talent; however I enjoy the art of others and am most moved by the Impressionists' rendering of light.
I am hooked on dancing, especially ballroom dancing. There's a 'dancer's high' which, I'm sure, is not unlike a 'runner's high' - those endorphins are mighty fine. It would be hard for me to give up dancing - hopefully you'd want to give it a try.
I don't shun TV. I'm a news junkie and a politics wonk and I need my regular fixes. I also enjoy good comedy, including standup, and we just don't have the venues here in town (not to mention clubbing gets pricey).
I don't like bars and don't drink very much at all. If there's a good band, I can be persuaded to go to a bar once in a while but it's not my idea of fun to make the 'pub' a regular thing.
I don't believe in 'love at first sight' and I'm exceedingly suspicious of what most people seem to call the 'spark'. If you understand Helen Fisher's work, you understand how we are still animals and that people need to base a partnership on other than nature's urge to choose someone who would produce ideal offspring. I have tried relationships both ways; the better result came from choosing the person whose company I enjoyed the most as a partner - meaning we never ran out of conversation, laughed together often, had fun, and had each other's back. It's also important that we like each other enough to spend plenty of time together without getting sick or tired of each other. Otherwise, how can you travel together?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'll go with the trend - coffee someplace and a chat to see if the conversation flows freely and happily.
