Just to put this upfront, to send me a message, it will need to be over 300 characters unless I make you a favorite. If 300 characters is too much for you to write we would not be a match since I value the ability in communications very high and have grown resistant to the 100 "hey you" "hey there" messages. I WORK, therefore my ability to "TRAVEL" is limited to a few days at a time if possible. If you are looking for a "Travel Companion" I am not that guy. There is much to see within a few hours of Portland, by car or by plane. Want to travel overseas? That will be without this working guy. Originally from New Jersey and conservative.
So many things to say here, but most importantly, love is always the answer and if you know who to love and be loved, then that is a good beginning. Yet, despite all the stuff we list, aren't we all just looking for someone who will care about us, love us, want to come home to us?...
Someone kind to their very soul and hope to find in you. Hoping to find someone who wants to be with me as much as I want to be with them as friends, lovers, mutual muse, and all of the nuances of a lasting successful relationship/partnership. Have been divorced since 2007 and spent 30 professional years in the Social Services. Sometimes called Pastor Bill, sometimes Poet, at times photographer, must love dogs..I have three!.
"I could be wrong, but I think whether we admit it to ourselves or not, most of us are looking for pretty much the same thing... an intimate emotional and physical connection..... "actual real love doesn't fade. It isn't like a glass of water where you drink it and then it's gone. It's more like a spring that somehow keeps renewing itself." So, not to be discouraged! Most of us have had at least a little taste of that spring and it's so worth waiting for. (waiting for you?)" "A relationship will last if you see it as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.” it speaks to what I'm looking for in a partner. A relationship of respect, caring, nurturing and a commitment to each others happiness & pleasure ! I'm looking forward to the day I meet you, and we begin exploring and enjoying this amazing, unpredictable world together!” A relationship is about the sharing...it's about exploring and taking the time to uncover the hidden treasures and gifts within us all...it's about appreciation and acceptance...with honest communication as the cornerstone.
If you are a smoker, drug user, or felon, If a person is not willing to take care of themselves, then how could we expect to take care of one another? not an upgraded member
I am a people person who maintains sound ethics and integrity. am allergic to rudeness and people who behave in ways less than they are capable of behaving. I treasure simple displays of love and affection in a relationship and shown towards perfect strangers. Find the good and reject selfishness without restraint. Maintaining balance is key for much in life and I believe that is true. study comparative religion, NLP, and Spiritual awareness, my aura, projected by my smile, that promotes trust and serves as an example of how to love another person fully. I'm very selective these days so if I do take the time and put forth the energy to contact you, please show the same level of respect in return even if it is to say thank you and good luck..
