My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am adventurous, inquisitive, and classy... and am a bright, affectionate, playful spirit, ready to laugh, who desires... the

company of a GOOD man--an exquisite soul--

and--in one of my best friends--I hope to discover one of the great loves of my life--

with whom to share a long-term monogamous relationship of substance

and joy!

(FYI: If you wonder why I answered "other" for Religion in the Details section, I subscribe to the Unitarian-Universalist principles.)

I seek an inimitable man, not a male carbon-copy of me; a tender, earnest, and courageous communicator; a blend of perception, emotion, and soul whose combination of mind-body-spirit complements mine. let us discover this together.

Even as we enjoy the fancy moments of going out, let's share the day-to-day mundane functions of life--shopping at the supermarket, doing the laundry, creating the little intimacies.... even working on projects independently but in each other's company proves comforting.

A regular at the gym, i am health-conscious and maintain a diet based on moderation. My appearance is stylishly expressive. enjoying my panache in dolling up. I pride myself on being a second-hand store fashionista!

I value skilled honest communication and sensitivity and the ability to adapt as we grow amid experiences. i refuse to bicker in times of conflict or adversity. I prefer to navigate difficulty with tenderness. I treat gently your vulnerabilities in order to preserve our feeling at ease with one another and request gentleness likewise. you challenge me to be my finer self and welcome to be so challenged. ultimately, we are and see each other as allies.

I support your aspirations and request your support of mine. I have a passion for being part of something important and find the same attractive in a man. my journey is a process of evolution. you are on a similar mindful journey.

I adore animals as much as friends and loved ones, and even experience a mindful sorrow in eating them... no, not friends and loved ones... animals!

We sit and talk, we express affection, we cook, we exercise and walk on trails, we travel, we problem-solve, we cry and offer comfort, we go out to dine and to see movies or performances, we learn, we dance, we laugh... as friends and partners. We discover a romantic relationship with ever-evolving promise, we can decide how we wish to continue our lives together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My business venture--HEROES, LLC--keeps my focus on development of resiliency education workshops and coaching. The basis for this venture is an original theory defended in my master's thesis--The Resiliency Fitness Paradigm. The Paradigm provides the backbone for my programs, and client experiences provide substance within the facilitated exercises and discussion.

I participate in business development activities through Empowered Women International, Toastmasters, and MC Mastermind, a small business incubator. I write a blog, Tweet, and maintain a bulletin board on my website. In addition, I am a practiced peer-counselor through the International Re-evaluation Counseling Communities.

I have practiced various arts... collage, jewelery-making. dance, and poetry. I exhibited my art at Artomatic 2012, and I have sold my jewelry at craft fairs. All my arts activities are latent at present.

What are your aspirations and activities? What do you live for?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening to and encouraging others... dolling up... leading... joining in... cooking... public speaking... traveling (someday)... learning lessons and evolving... designing and leading workshops... taking care of animals (no matter their special needs)... not wasting time in dead-ends... not giving up!... appreciating the paradox...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The manner of my dress is quite fashionable, femme, sexy, elegant, fun, creative. I prefer the wonder of self-expression through decoration. people also notice the nine... now eight (Now THERE'S a story!)... rings on my fingers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

i also entertain the Buddhist teachings of Tara Brach!

"The Fisher King," "What Dreams May Come," "The World According to Garp," "Tne Fugitive," "Regarding Henry," "Harold and Maude," "Birdy," "Big Fish," "Philadelphia," "City of Angels"... i do not drag boyfriends to chick-flicks... I enjoy good stories and character development and cringe at gratuitous violence... sci-fi or action-adventure can be fun... also definitely must see a movie first and then dinner to talk about it.

my taste in music varies widely. the childhood staple was Billy Joel and most of his music appeals to my aesthetic and sense of nostalgia. no artist/group dominates now. i take my music on a song-by-song basis.

Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, American...! i tend to be healthily discriminating about what i consume yet there are so many tastes to savor!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
...the iPod that my brother gave me! precious cats, Sophie and Sherlock

...the genuine mutual rapport, initiative, and support of loving friends core belief in my own goodness and that of others.

...the skepticism that spurs my critical thinking.

...the sure knowledge that there are men who believe that women are smart, funny, warm, pretty, tender, strong, creative human beings who make them better men!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
whether geese have people-bumps when they are chilly
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...going out with you?!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am turned on by mastery. when a man can do something well or talk about his expertise, something inside of me literally turns on! It is no measure of character, but it floats my boat! oh, and I like my underwear to match! ;)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. have the WOW factor... if you recognize that these profiles are a hill of beans that, ultimately, are discarded when you meet and get a sense, an attraction, a basis for something even if you are uncertain as to what... if you are willing to take a "look see," just taking a walk or drinking "coffee"... if you have a good reason and wish to tell me about it!
