The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about almost everything that I involve myself in to some degree. I carry an intensity, and tenacity of spirit into almost any endeavor I decide to turn my hand to. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing right. In a relationship I am passionate about the lady I am with, being who I need to be for her so that she can be who she needs to be for me, helping her attain her goals, lay hold of her hopes, fulfill her dreams, have her every desire fulfilled, and become the best version of herself that she can be. But I can also be passionate about being laid back, relaxing, and smelling the roses.
I typically spend my leisure time
Ancient forests, architecture, balance, beauty, candles, classical music, creativity in all places, crystal, driving my 67 Mustang, being silly in the rain with someone special, holding hands, hot tea and great conversation, interior design, mountains, roaring fires in stone fireplaces, golden oldies... and some not so old, Classical music, the theater, rainy days, reading, romance, roses, seeing new places, slow dances, exercising, star gazing, sunshiny meadows, the beach at sunset, thinking out of the box, Thunderstorms, cuddling up with someone I love, , walks in the park, watching a hawk soar? just being and living and experiencing life
The most influential person in my life has been
There is no single quality that really overshadows the others that I look for in that special lady but a dynamic mixture of qualities working in concert to form that special individual who can complement my own dynamic mixture of qualities so that together we can become more than the sum of our individualities; alive with life, energetic drive, dynamic action, with integrity, honesty, caring, kindness, thoughtfulness, affection, passion, and love; both giving and desiring all those things in return, elevating each other, and challenging each other to be our best version of self... and I should not forget to mention great communication..
The first thing people notice about me
I really suppose it depends on who it is and in what the setting is... in ministry it is kindness and thoughtfulness; at work it is the ability to act decisively, to move forward to a goal; to my friends it might be my easy going spirit, or my humor, or my love for Christ; in a relationship that I am a hopeless romantic at heart with an analytical and intellectual bent that is displayed equally in my creativity and my conversation.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I love reading well written material. To me there is something about having a book in your hand, that will never be replaced by electronic media. I believe writing is an art form of a high order and great reading is to be enjoyed like a good meal. Let's see... the last books read are: the Bible (an ongoing process), the Bourne series (movie was better), Lerner's "Dance of" series, Artists Way, Unimaginable Life, and a few technical publications. A great activity for a rainy evening with someone special would be cuddling up and sharing reading a book out loud together. There just seems to be something very intimate and very romantic about it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Lord Jesus Christ & Salvation
- My Health
- Where I am in my life today
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That flexibility, amicability and selflessness when display in a relationship are not signs of weakness or one easily manipulated, but are actually signs of a strength within, the ability to be selfless, to lay one's self out and deny oneself without fear for the benefit of another? I believe strongly that a relationship must be give - give with the focus on the other rather than self? Being fulfilled as you fulfill the one you are with, both trusting in the other to meet their needs so that they may focus wholly on the other..
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Caring, Creative, Romantic
A little more about me
I am looking for a special lady who knows who she is, is intelligent, and has a mind of her own and the confidence and independence to express it, who enjoys a deep conversations, who desires not only to be showered with all types of affection, but desires to give the same; someone with her own style and who likes to look sharp - someone who is emotionally stable, happy with their life, financially responsible, and respects herself enough to look after herself physically, mentally, and emotionally as I do myself? Someone who likes being looked after, but does not need to be. And when it comes to visual chemistry, Slender, and physically fit.
