Alfred Ricci - Profile
I love life and am immensely grateful for the opportunities the universe has given me. I live in the now while creating the next stage in my life. Years of spiritual practice have helped me become peaceful, relaxed, intuitive, grounded, and balanced. I’m in an amazing place in my life and am seeking one woman to share it with.
I am well-traveled, quite healthy, spiritually tuned, deeply authentic, emotionally intelligent, consistently optimistic, playfully affectionate, madly passionate, a generous lover, a great listener, deeply loyal, and a nice guy. I'm happy doing guy stuff (e.g., fixing and building things). Now I want to build an amazing relationship with a spiritual woman who believes travel feeds the soul.

Where I came from: No matter what life threw at me, I worked harder. Living in shelters, group homes, and a foster home while attending six high schools in four years was challenging, yet the most valuable lessons in my life came during my teenage years. For example, I learned I could adapt to anything while keeping focused on a goal. I now welcome adventure because I learned the importance of experiencing different places. Determination is a value I've continued, which led me to work, live, and be educated across Asia, Europe, and the US. Travel and spirituality have guided me to let go, and become centered and confident. Now, my life’s focus is to give back by sharing the tools I learned during an incredible life (aka emotional intelligence).
Why Am I single? I was in a two-year relationship until a few months ago. I took some time to heal (on a beach in Mexico) and voilà. Previously married twice, no kids. Hopefully, the third time is a charm.
I am a real guy, but I’m not perfect. After 15+ years of inner work, I’m still finding gunk to let go of. I love to eat but can barely cook. (I am a great sous chef). No matter how healthy I eat, I still have cheat days. I am comfortable being an Alpha, but I love hugs. I sometimes give people more chances than they deserve. I can’t multitask to save my life. I have a case of selective hearing because I may be so focused on something. If I’m in front of a computer, you may have to poke me first to get my attention.
Hobbies (would much prefer to do these with my partner):
- Often: Travel, Snorkeling, Meditation, Motorcycle rides, Jeeping, Racecar driving, Theatre/live concerts, Gym, Reading, Dog foster parent
- Occasionally: Boating, Kayaking, Scuba diving, Photography, Volunteering
About you: A remarkable woman who is ready to create an extraordinary long-term relationship. You are internationally aware and indulge in what life has to offer. You’ve already done the spiritual inner work and know how to be a tender mirror for your authentic partner. We willingly share what we’ve learned, and support each other’s growth and dreams. I’m not expecting someone perfect. Just a woman who is willing to nurture the relationship as well as each other. She loves to experience life and wants a dedicated partner by her side to share our experiences. We help each other become better individually and as a couple.
My primary love languages are:
- Quality Time and Physical Touch (holding hands, hugs, PDA)
- Secondary love language: Acts of Service
A few of my favorite quotes:
The longer I live, the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.
~ Charles Swindoll
The only thing for sure is that you are here, that you are alive, that this world is full of wonders.
I want to know God’s thoughts ... the rest are details.
You don’t stop playing because you get old. You get old because you stop playing.
