I am a diehard romantic, but not in the typical sense. I romance my
life with great imagination. Like old pickup trucks on a dirt road
in Mexico. I am fortunate to have traveled quite extensively,
though there are many more places that I haven't seen than have.
Currently I am happy to be "off the road" and settling back into
Minneapolis. Enjoying the simplicities in life, like a predictable
schedule and dining at my favorite restaurants... or new ones. I
love great food and interior design. I love interpersonal dynamics
and self study; being able to learn from myself. I love soft things
and things that smell good, and a mans hands. Good coffee, good
olive oil, good wine, .... sheets, faces from all over the world.
... you get the idea.
If I were to summarize myself strong would be somewhere, if not
everywhere in my definition. I am a bit exhausted with this roll,
but would be dishonest to exclude its influence in me. I have spent
a great deal of time alone. Which has been a gift, and has not come
without its challenges. I am interested in someone who knows
themselves well, and wants to know themselves better. As I do. I am
interested in a relationship based on truth. I trust people more
who's lives have gotten difficult, and want someone who is going to
be there if the shit hits fan... because inevitably life will be
I have been conditioned as an athlete and the youngest child of 6.
My family kicks ass. They are important to me.
I have never online dated before and have quite a bit of
ambivalence about doing so. However, I am excited about putting
some energy into creating a personal relationship in my life again.
I have been single for about six years. I have dated a little bit
in that time, but nothing serious. I am looking forward to having a
relationship again. It makes me smile to know that it is what is
next for me.
I am open minded. Liberal. A democrat. I love to ride my bike, it
is a language for me of fluidity and the wind. Of grace. I used to
race them, and now just love to ride them. I teach and study Yoga
and cannot imagine my life without this. Yoga is much more for me
than postures, it is a way of life. I believe in belief and
becoming a better person. I believe in compassion. In conducting
experiments that stretch my boundaries and help me understand
others. My good friends are not the ones who validate me, but the
ones who will tell me the truth, as they see it.
What I’m doing with my life
Loving it. I like to say that my life is a lot like the movie big
fish. I have some crazy stories. I am living a life of self
exploration. I am a massage therapist who specialized in deep
tissue rehabilitative work. I am currently interested in investing
more time in my own creative energy. Exploring my imagination to
open my intuition in new ways. I have a vision of living a life
close to the earth. There is more detail to it... Right now I am
focused on my relationship with my family and settling back in to
work in Minneapolis. Rather than focusing on getting ahead.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Living in alignment with my purpose. Where I am headed. What my

in their lives. Who is the man that I will spend a great deal of my
On a typical Friday night I am
With my really good girlfriends either out or at home. I am not
much of a Friday night girl. I don't run in the main stream... or
