Date a woman from Canada. I'm interested in living a life full of meaning and growth. It's important to me to keep learning about myself, becoming more able to be truly who I am and more free of my personal demons and conditioning. Ideally, I want a partner in this process, someone who knows himself well with the courage and willingness to keep looking into his psyche and seeking similar freedom. I want a relationship that is a supportive, nurturing and enduring environment for becoming the best people we can be, individually and as a couple.
I want a lot of contradictory things: intimacy and individuality; peace and excitement; freedom and security; stability and adventure; strength and vulnerability; romance and practicality; forcefulness and gentleness; playfulness and seriousness, action and reflection; control and abandon.
I want a relationship full of passionate, lusty sensuality and deep emotional connection. I want public displays of affection and tiny surprising gifts that say 'I was thinking about you'. I want to share cozy quiet time at home and explorations out and about.
I love to dance and discover food I've never tried before. I love to be in the right place at the right time with the right words to make someone's day. I love to sing and make music with friends. I love to make beautiful things out of yarn that keep my loved ones warm.
I'm hard on myself when I mess up, but I'm working on being kinder to myself and others. I find punctuality challenging; again, something I'm working on. I respond very poorly to disrespect, bigotry and judgemental attitudes. I will not be controlled or manipulated. When I'm upset I get quiet and withdrawn. When I'm overwhelmed, I hide.
I prefer small gatherings with friends to large crowds of strangers. I like to get to know people one-on-one. People who get high or really drunk freak me out, so I don't like to be around them, but a pleasant buzz every once in a while with people I trust is fun.
I need someone who can communicate directly, who knows and can ask for what he wants and needs. I need someone who won't freak out at my emotions. I need someone who values and respects his health and wellbeing, and mine. I want a playmate, a co-conspirator, a lover and a friend. Is that you?
