Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m looking for an open-minded, inquisitive, independent companion
to share life, outings, travel, adventures, and growth (personal
and together.) I'm looking for a fun and deep connection on many
I'm sometimes playful, sometimes deep, fairly curious, a bit
unconventional and always dependable. Healthy and fit, I believe in
taking care of my body. I spend a few hours at the gym each week,
swim in the lakes around here, have a couple of yoga classes, like
to bicycle, walk, and hike. I get excited about music in many
genres and attend the occasional concert and festival. I do
smoothing called Ecstatic Dance (free-form) but also am currently
learning (finally!) dance steps.
I like people who laugh easily, can carry on conversation about a
number of things and who are appreciative of how good most of us
have it in this time and place in history and the world.
I’m an optimist who ultimately finds humor - and lessons - in most
things including the hardships along the way. I recently had one: a
severe car crash but it changed my life in interesting and positive
ways. I'm amazed at my recovery.
I've always seen profundity in the mundane and awe in the mystery
of life. I find that my passion for life has not dimmed with the
years. I want to be intrigued emotionally, intellectually, and

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Horse), Sarah Vaughan, Satie, Sleater-Kinney, Talking Heads,
Telemann, Vivaldi, White Stripes, Brazilian, Blue Note jazz,

Passionate about songs in many genres but in movies, my taste isn't
as wide (favorites are usually with richly-drawn characters), and I
watch no television (not a snob about this though) Besides
listening to much music, I also read a lot, and have a handful of
podcasts that I listen to.
At home: Vegetables prepared in a multitude of ways, fish, and, in
moderation, modest amounts of well-sourced poultry and meat plus a
nice variety of other healthy things. Out: quite flexible but
partial to Thai, Tex-Mex, and seafood.

5. Sensuous appreciation of life

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

sections: there is a lot in there that I do spend time thinking

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

the beautiful parks around here. I find that this is the most
comfortable way of meeting (and most agree.) It may be the start of
something big or not but at the very least, it will be an
You can stay open to someone who has lots of possibilities ahead,
comfortably situated in all ways - and at the same time, open to
any number of paths.
