I'm a non-smoker,
(pretty much a) non-drinker, (I drink very rarely)
I would Prefer to have these things in common with someone I date. For sure no tobacco use, preferably not much alcohol. If you drink occasionally, and Truly don't have a problem... that can probably work.
I would eventually like to live with, or very near/ in community with my partner/ family... so, similar life-style choices are really nice to share.
~ ~ ~ WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR ~ ~ ~
I'd like to be in a passionate relationship with a partner who has the time and interest to explore and develop same. I realize that that's the goal, not where we start. :)
I'm open to talking on the phone a bit before deciding to meet, but I am not interested in an electronic relationship. So, if that's your thing, please click along to the next page. :)
I'm using this site to find people to meet, in 3-dimensional reality. After this electronic mode of connection, I'd like to have somewhat of an "old-fashioned" dating experience; including a willingness to communicate regularly, make plans, and see if a relationship grows from there. I'm not seeking a pen-pal.

Style-wise (if that's important to you :), I'm a no make-up, no high heels, hippie-esque female. I like to look nice, and I do feel sexy, in my comfortable, casual clothes.

Some of my hobbies and interests:
Socializing with friends;
going out to dinner, parties, good conversation.

The Oregon Country Fair is always a highlight of my Summer. I work and camp there for about a week (in early July). It's a Huge, cosmic, musical, 24 hour-a-day party/circus-like event in the woods near Veneta, OR. oregoncountryfair.org
