Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an independent, feminine, gutsy, playful, vulnerable,
self-sufficient woman. I am sensitive and analytical, and I say
what I mean without playing games. I have been a risk taker and
adventurer to finally get where I want to be. I like to travel –
particularly spontaneous road trips – (I am not a snowbird), and
trying new things. My political point of view is all over the map.
I am a dual American/Israeli citizen (lived there for 17 years),
and that influences my outlook on life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am committed to achieving a simple, country life that I was meant
to live without it becoming a social or political cause. That goes
with being a homebody. I like to cook, entertain (casually),
decorate my home, do chores and garden and I appreciate being
acknowledged for it. I'm in forced retirement. I look forward to
having a ceramics studio soon and am building a community
non-profit for artisans – I believe in values-based work and being
active in community, helping others and social justice (without the
baggage of undeserved entitlement).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am rediscovering my talents and interests in ceramics, gardening,
baking. Making friends – let's see if that translates into

That I smile a lot. I am easy to get to know and am faithful to the
friends I make.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Mask, Silkwood, Steel Magnolias – Cher is a better actress
than singer. Books: Anything by Ken Kesey or John Steinbeck. Music:
Classic Rock before the mid 80's, New Age Jazz, Contemporary
Israeli, Classical – I Hate Rap... yep – that's a song
(Confederate Railroad), and some other Country music. Food:
anything authentically ethnic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Physical affection, good friends, contact with my spiritual and
cultural source, my own home, open space, the hope that I will find
the next love of my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I'd like to spend time with someone I care deeply about.
Getting to know my community and building a social circle around
that special person and this place I love to call home.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home trying to make a separation between the week and the
weekend. This is hard because I am newly retired and there isn't
much difference in the days of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Now that I am no longer on a career path, my energy has turned into
a sensuality I haven't experienced for 30 years. I am feeling the
urgency about this part of my life. I put off bringing someone into
it and only recently was awakened to the fact of how important this
to me. Life is like a roll of toilet paper – the closer to the end
we get, the faster it goes. I just noticed the speed, but have a
lot left on the roll.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am looking for a long-term, committed relationship. I am seeking
someone who appreciates living in the country in the Inland
Northwest (Please do not respond if you are not in the Inland
Northwest. I have found that long-distance relationships don't work
and I am not going to relocate again). I am attracted to someone
who is intelligent, honest, trustworthy and faithful, respects his
chosen partner, and honors those qualities in me, has a sense of
humor. My match will never put a woman down, but knows how to
appropriately show anger, and how to agree to disagree. It is
important to me that he lives a values-based life and will stand up
for his views, and respects his lady's right to her own views. I
respect that he loves his family, but doesn't expect his lady to be
part of his family drama. He gets to know her friends and family,
but does not judge them or keep her from them. I am financially
independent but not wealthy. I am not in a position to support a
"dependent". I want a man who is comfortable in his own male skin
without apologies or effort, and who likes women enough that it's
not her shape or a pretty face that is attractive to him, but the
inner glow he brings out. He knows about seduction and chemistry
and understands that a woman enjoys/needs the intimacy underlying
;-) A Harley Davidson (or other large touring bike) would be a
bonus. I love the life… the older the bike, the more it vibrates!
