Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am witty but not terribly funny. Serious yet infinitely
empathetic. Southern yet liberal, well traveled, and educated.
Knowledgeable yet often forget details. Adventurous and spontaneous
yet hard working. One of my boyfriends described me as a "low
maintenance girl in a high maintenance package"... whatever that
means.... a dichotomy.
I have never planted roots but am devoted to my family. I have
dated men from various socioeconomic, political, and cultural
backgrounds and have found that my ability to respect a man is most
important in terms of relationships.
I am a designer and thus a visual person. When I was younger, I
dated men ten years older than me on occasion. Now, I have found I
am rarely attracted to older men. I am not saying it is impossible,
but I am not the average 35 year old. I have never been married or
had kids. I have lived a life of adventure and exploration. I may
have lived in the sun but I have also lived a young person's life.
I am not surrendering that. I am more stationary at the moment but
will not remain that way forever. I would like to find a man who
wants to join me in the adventure of life, not settle down and give
up. "The suburbs are where dreams go to settle." This is why I am
on the internet. I have no issues finding dates but I want
companionship. It would be nice to know the person sitting next to
me on the next flight....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
taking fewer plane rides than in the past, calling "home" a place
with a roof and walls instead of a hull and a sail, wearing more
clothes and fewer bikinis (bikinis were my daily clothing option
for a long time and my photos reflect that as there just weren't
many other options), working on my career, spending time with
family after years away.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making everything I touch just a little bit better; saying what I
mean and doing what I say; creating moments and memories; staying
calm; showing up; procrastinating; checking out; drawing the line;
taking risks; living life.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read a lot but do not have favorites. I just finished Devil in
the White City and, if PBR won the blue ribbon, I'd hate to know
what the other beers tasted like. I watch fewer movies and rarely
see a movie twice. Exceptions would be Pulp Fiction, Almost
Famous... maybe a few others.
I lived in Denver and was fortunate to see many shows at Red Rocks
which is my favorite venue. Favorite band is the Pixies and that
genre always appeals to me. Favorite shows varies greatly: 311,
Killers, Sting... I have a friend who use to play for us at sea.
Live music on the water is about as good as it gets in my opinion.

American and British stuff so I know some of that genre but rarely

I love seafood! (But have been spoiled by my proximity to the fresh
stuff.) I like Indian food but my food preferences change with the
place: There is this German woman who lives on a small island in
the Gulf of Thailand who makes homemade chocolate mousse served
swimming in homemade baileys. Stop by with a piece of Tupperware
and she scoops it in big heaping portions. You take it home on your
motorbike and eat it all before it gets runny in the heat. It's
precious because its rare and exotic in that place. I love that...

slab with a wooden pillow with no modern conveniences so these two
are my bottom line. Human beings are pretty resilient and can
survive with very little.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
urban design reform; the built environment's impact on
socioeconomic issues; fair trade practices in developing nations;
sailing; travel; design thinking instruction.... I am a designer, a

day to day.

you realize that relationships do not complete individuals, if you
are interested in sharing adventures and not finding a housemate
for the suburbs, you live in Austin, you do not share custody with
anyone, if you understand that romantic and dive partnerships are a
bit alike (often best in moments of silence, exploring new places,
and always with time to come up for a bit of air), you have a
passport and are not afraid to use it, the unconventional path does
not frighten you, living outside of the US sounds appealing, sun
and salt water turn you on, and if you realize that adult women do
not need men for casual sex... we've got that worked out already.
