These words are a long way from a sales pitch..
I am not an average guy, not cut from the same pattern.. I have my own identity, individuality with qualities and improvements to work on.
Now a few relative and overused terms; down to earth, easy-going, open-minded, well read, well travelled.. not resorts.., sense of humour, good listener, confident, independent, with values, and a little on the conservative side.
In a nutshell, I have lived, studied, and worked in a few countries; this continent, Europe, and few other places. I can say, I am lucky, I have been exposed to a broader perspective of life, culturally.. socially.. and I have learnt to appreciate and enjoy the important, significant and simpler things life offers. At the same time learnt to differentiate between needs and wants.. balance and moderation..
Still, I do not take life too seriously. as we know, nobody will get out of it alive.
I like to communicate, exchange ideas, opinions about any topic.. at the same time, learn something new every day..
I would like to meet someone who is!; by the way.. this is not a list.. is a frame of mind... confident, with character, has her own identify, knows her own distinctiveness, independent, mature, has a high self-esteem, well read, not afraid to communicate, expressive.. with an opinion, very important.. awareness.. critical thinker.. a curious mind with traditional values.. She knows when and how to take it easy.. enjoys and lives life.. knows and follows the KISS principle....
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
I am not looking for the typical cliché..."nice personality" or someone who just wants to "fit-in"... I am looking for some depth.. substance..
Communication; a two way communication is one of the the most important factors of human interaction, in this context, for developing and building relationships..
On that subject.. everyone is looking for a relationship.. aren't we?
The question is, what kind of relationship..?
For what I have seen everyone has an interpretation of this term based on personal experiences and/or circumstances, there are those saying, they do not have any baggage, or the past is in the past.. What I have seen, we are the product of our past experiences and we are living with them everyday, they do have an influence on the way we are, behave, live and think ..
This reminds me this thought.. doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. under the current situation. I think, the good old five whys technique can provide some enlightenment here..
At this time in our lives is just a matter of how we use those experiences to improve ourselves and how we apply them to relationship...finding that sweet spot called "common ground".. or just maybe there are too many distractions.. to follow the mirage.. I guess, there is too much noise getting in the process of thought and individuality.
Ditto about the endless search for the mythical and elusive 'Chemistry'.. Look where the mythical "Chemistry" - has landed us!! In the relationship revolving door.. Chemistry is something to be developed.. there is a process to achieve it.. something to nurture.. similar to relationships.. Isn't it!?
I found these quotes on some profiles, some food for thought..
- Physical attractions are common, but a real mental connection is rare. ...if you find it, hold on to it.
- I believe great relationships are ones where there is ease of communication, honesty, humour, friendship, trust, respect, support and of course mutual physical attraction.
- We may not have experienced the same activities, but we have experienced the same emotions, so when I say you need to find common interests, I mean you need to find something that sparks similar emotions in both.
- If you have a penny and I have a penny and we exchange pennies, you still have one cent and I still have one cent. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange ideas, you now have two ideas and I now have two ideas." If we replace the term IDEA with a common objective.. This thought can be applied to relationships.
Let's keep it Simpler!
Life is what we make out of it, it can be simple..or simpler, all depends on how we approach it.. for some odd reason we consciously or subconsciously complicate it. the "human" X-factor in action.
A few words of wisdom..I am sure everyone will agree with, they do fit the context.
"Destiny is not a matter of chance,
It is a matter of choice;
It is not a thing to be waited for,
It is a thing to be achieved.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.. or, possible. – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, stated by Sherlock Holmes
