Vegan widower seeks ethical-vegan companion.
I have been an ethical vegan and an animal rights activist for 30+ years. Widowed 2+ years ago, after 40 years of true soulmateness. I want to have that again, to be whole again. Tough challenge, especially when adding the vegan requirement, but it is too central to my core. Just can't date a non-vegan. It's like they have a hole in their soul. So trying this site. Here is my short profile, limit 2000 words. Which ones to use? I will try to be succinct. No room for embellishment:
63, but as fit and active as if still 33. Totally healthy. Slim, trim, athletic. Nature lover. Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist. Self employed and financially secure. Live within a 4,000 acre nature preserve just East of Cleveland. A dreamland yet close to all the cosmopolitan cultural amenities. Education- master's degree. Avocation- vegan outreach. Board member and officer of the Cleveland Vegan Society. Interests- music,(classical to Blues, books (classics to the philosophy of morals),nature (bird-watching to trekking up Stebbins Gulch),culture (the whole gamut),and, most of all, relating- from friendship to soulmate love. People would describe me as friendly, outgoing, warm, genuine, fun, expressive, and articulate. Privately, one-to-one, I am that, and more, as I love plumbing the depths of our souls and sharing our deepest thoughts and feelings. I do demand thoughtful conversation informed by a deep inquisiteness and a profound awe of this life we share on this Earth. But I also like to have fun. The two can feed on eachother in a beautifully creative and fulfilling way in a relationship of emotional maturity, trust, openness, acceptance,and givingness. I do know how to do that. Did it for 40 years. I do pine for that again. I have had to re-invent myself in the last 2 years. I have adjusted and come a long way. My life is rich and full. But only half so, without someone to share it with. So, here goes with trying to find that elusive butterfly of love.
