Update: So, I suspect that there may be women with sincere intentions on this site. To them my honest apologies. I am VERY serious about having a family blended in 2 cultures, but the hundreds of dollars I would spend here would be better saved for that family or spent on friends here who could use help. I am sincere and nice, but I am not a fool. I am going fishing on other free areas of the virtual world.
I'm a teacher, I'm very active in the community, and I'm working for my next academic degree, so I'm usually very busy writing, preparing, grading, and plaining. I apologize if I take a bit to reply to letters. I am not ignoring you, I am just very busy living life. Part of that, is be a support to friends and neighbors. I think it's very important to be there for neighbors, friends, and even most for family.
I don't rush into things and I don't rush out of them. I am a very loyal friend and partner (unless someone is really cruel). I try to be honest with myself and my friends, but I sometimes fail. I try very hard to know myself well, so that I don't accidentally lie to someone. I am a very passionate person, and that can be very hard on people. I love to study the mysteries and archetypes of the world.
Ideal match description:
I will try to get to this as time permits. Right now, I think it's more important to get back to those who have taken the time to write.
As a start, let me say...
The stories in mythology, legend, and fair tales are about working through difficult trials for something important. I would like most of all someone who realizes that the fairy tale love and family is a wonderful, joyous, and important thing, but it also just as difficult as the trials of legend! I need someone who will see things through, talk things out, and not just run away when things aren't going so well.
Knowing ourselves is very important so we don't run astray as often and don't hurt ourselves and our loved one. People seem to hate self-reflection and harsh truth. I want someone who can take and give the truth, even if it's not pleasant. I want a partner who (mostly) knows who she is so that I know what I need to do to be a supportive partner myself.
I love passionate people: people who are deeply affected by both the beauty and tragedy around them. I like people who both feel and think deeply. It doesn't matter to me so much what you believe but rather that (1) you know why you believe it, (2) you believe it, and (3) you are able to look into and past things to remain open for other possible beliefs.
A solid well-thought conversation can keep me fixed and enthralled all day long. I am more attracted to people's minds and personality (that's one reason I spend my time on campus teaching). What is inside a woman is what makes her beautiful and sexy! Shallow people who don't feel or think are not at all attractive.
