Platonic meeting over coffee

10


10 simbi per hour

Sometime we just need someone to meet up with and have a cup of coffee with.
If you are in the Denver area and like to just meet up and tell your thoughts to a good listener outside of your circle of friends then this may be a good way to do it. Just someone to chat with, share your ideas, brainstorm or get feedback from (or not). I may or may not have an answer for anything but I can always offer you support and acknowledge your thoughts. If you want to just learn about me that can work too. I'm likely to bring a deck of cards and can do a magic trick or two as well. :) Maybe you have photos of your kids. This offer is for any gender identity. You need only be a human. Although I will entertain the idea of coffee with an extraterrestrial very seriously. :)

I am happily married so this is a purely platonic meet up. We can meet at a coffee shop maybe 1/2 way between our locations. Or if you are going to be in the Denver Metro Area visiting and have some time to kill.
I would prefer to not talk politics, religion or too much about work... Just interests and life stuff.
My trade preference on this is a cup of coffee and maybe a pastry but I am open to other trades as well.

Training & Qualifications


You can read my profile and learn a little about me. I have my own personal issues like anyone else that I too sometimes like to share in a safe and trusting environment just to get them out of my brain and in front of me. I'm not religious at all and have no interest in finding a faith. I have a very clear approach to life that embraces creating simplicity in my own life and a very thoughtful perspective and world view. I understand the difference between empathy and sympathy. I won't dive in and solve your problems but respect that you are on your own path and need to work through your own processes in order to grow and really learn from your experiences.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Creative and witty, Dennis is a really multi-faceted guy! I learned new things just from interacting with him and you really have to check out his Etsy shop!
