Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Canadian but lived in Seattle for many years thus the 98122
zipcode. Like PNW but live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico now
since 3/09. Permanent resident of Mexico = ex-pat. I am a caring,
sensual, feisty, but supportive woman. I am very honest "what you
see is what you get". Communication on all levels is very important
to me & I do not want to have to second guess. I want us to
both be very open minded politically (progressive; NPR),
spiritually (I do not do well with dogmatism or organized
religion). I like to have down time but do not do well with
boredom. I play fair in the sandbox, share my toys and known to
colour outside of the lines.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Worked as nurse practitioner for many years in Seattle. Now, in
Mexico I am a small biz owner and constructed a rental casita above
my casa for tourist rental. Love to be active in terms of hikes,
kayaking, gym, swimming/snorkelling, dance. Travel and photography
are two of my passions. I went to Cuba this past year and would
like to explore more of both Cuba and Mexico (esp Copper Canyon,
etc). I am planning a trip to Spain/Portugal/Morocco this year.
Then, South America (Peru, Ecuador, Galapagos) which is on my short
list but bring a map & we can throw a dart together. I believe
that when we leave this world the single most important thing is to
know that we have loved and been loved. My philosophy of life is
that I do not want to feel that "the train has left the station
& we were both not on it for the ride together".
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a supportive, kind friend and partner. Quality relationships
are important to me. I am a good listener. Generous and I hope to
leave this world feeling that I made a positive contribution in the
lives of others.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am open, outgoing (but need quiet time) & artistic as
evidenced when you meet me or walk in my front door and I would
like to be with someone who appreciates & "experiences" art in
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading the Hummingbirds Daughter now. Enjoy independent films,
dramas, documentaries. Love da' blues, jazz, latin (especially
Cuban) and some old Rock n' Roll. Sharing cooking and food is
important to me especially healthy international dishes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Health, Love, Touch, Friends, Travel, Intelligent Conversation,
Laughter...OK I put seven. Rule Breaker I guess...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's it all about Alfie? Gratitude. Love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is really nothing typical about my life and Friday could be
any other day of the week to me...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would like a life partner. Realistically, since I live in Mexico
I need someone who is retired or can work remotely. I am open to
spending time north of the border too but Mexico is my home and
ideally I would like to be able to share both locales and travel
together too. I am independent - I moved to Mexico alone but I very
much enjoy being coupled. Affection & intimacy on all levels is
important to me. If you are someone who "distances" themselves
please, pass me by as I value true intimacy & commitment far
too much. I appreciate romance but do not need a hopeless romantic.
I am and need someone else who is "good in the trenches" &
knows how to communicate honestly, compromise & support. I want
us to be each others best friend and confidante.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I will respond to messages but not if there is not a photo or
simply a "hi, how are you?". If it progresses I would like to
correspond via phone as I feel that we all get a sixth sense from
the voice & ease of dialogue. Have 206 Seattle area code in
Mexico & Skype. Into traveling south of border?
