My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Like the song lyric, I believe that "love is what we came here for." And I also believe that a committed partnership, while incredibly challenging, offers unmatched rewards for those who enter into it--as well as for the people whose lives are touched by the partners. I believe that love is our fundamental nature, and we also need to practice it! I can't think of a better use of my time than devoting it to "the Art of Love," can you? If you agree, then perhaps we can support each other....

I'm starting to wonder if we are all seeking a "low maintenance" mate? I agree with psychologist and "Wired for Love" author Stan Tatkin, who says we're ALL high maintenance! We all have both needs and quirks, no? And don't we have a way better chance of meeting our needs if we do so in a partnership where each enjoys the acceptance of the other? As for "baggage," I think it's only a problem if we don't claim it!

I am 5 feet, 9 inches tall; 151 lbs; and am in the personal transformation business. It feels like my main job--for the past 40 years--has been working on my own healing & growth. So, yes, I can and do claim my own baggage.

Have identified as "Bu-Jew" (born Jewish, practicing Buddhism) for the past 6 years. Recently, however, have opened to a teacher with a different lineage--and seem to have gotten quite a good dose of Shakti (spiritual energy) in the process! So I guess I am "on the path." Am certainly getting very close and personal with my own heart--and being surprised daily by how much tenderness is there. I am willing to share my tender heart; you?

Music is another way to my heart: I play electric & acoustic guitar (well); sing (passably); dance (swing, Contra, rock & roll); or just listening (especially jazz). Am refreshed by being in Nature and like to walk--whether at Howarth Park or just around town. I enjoy cooking (& my charcoal grill); good conversation; laughter; and am told I give a good massage. I work out regularly and tend to stay physically active, so prefer a partner with a similar energy level.

Looking to meet someone who shares my desire to be fully present...who wants to (and can) share her inner life--and hear mine--without losing touch with her own truth or yielding to fear of conflict. Hoping she finds humor in life and human foibles...is gentle with herself and others... appreciates beauty and the arts...is passionate and affectionate...and will go with me to places where neither of us have gone before!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
