My self-summary
So how might I describe myself... I tend to be a blend of sweet, laid back, spontaneous, and spiritual while being intense, fiery, fiercely opinionated and quite motivated.

Things that describe me... I'm a nature lover, an herbalist witch, a costume/clothing/jewelry designer, a Virgo organizer (when it suits me), a sensualist, an active spiritualist, a cook/chef by trade, a personal interior art designer, a performer, an aerialist, sometimes a comedian (especially when on stage), a care-taker as well as an independent woman.

While I'm happy to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon tooling around at the house, making yummy exotic food (or herbal elixers and homemade meads), sewing or in my garden...
I also love being at festivals, organizing big creative events and art projects and performing. Or also dedicating the weekend to being at a retreat center learning and processing.

... Let's see... What else?
Oh yea...
I also do a good bit of traveling... and have spent lots of time in lots of places around the world.
I live in my gypsy wagon/school bus.
I like to do yoga, acroyoga and circus stuff and spend a good deal of time studying esoteric arts.

I know who I am, what I want, and what I don't want.

That said, I want to be really super clear about what I'm looking for here on okcupid. While I can be a bit flexible... please understand that I am really looking for someone within my own age range and relative social scene.

I'm 38. I don't really want to date someone who's in their early 20's or their 50's. Really somewhere within the 33-45 range. I want someone who's ready to be in a loving beautiful, committed and mature relationship. I don't want just a random hook-up and I also don't want to pass another year of casual dating.

I don't have any kids but I'd like one... I'm happy to meet a guy who already has a child. That would be lovely. I also want my own. If you are someone who really isn't interested in having any then please be kind enough to not mislead me. (This has happened to me several times and I watched several years of my life pass.)

As for the "social scene" thing... Yes, part of me is professional, but I am also alternative, artistic, circusy and a bit on the freaky side. If you are generally a pretty "normal", mainstream, run-of-the-mill kindof guy, you're probably not what I'm looking for. Although, like I said, that can be a little bit flexible... but come on. Don't write to me if you don't really think that we'd be a reasonable match. I get far too many messages from sweet men who mean well and are very nice... but I think that they already know that they are not the type of guy that I would go for... (it's nothing personal... I just know who's my type)...and yet they message me and then I have to feel like a rude person for not writing them back.... I don't wanna be rude. I just don't have a lot of interest in going out with men who are my father's age or who would have nothing in common with me.
