My self-summary
NOTE: please don't contact me if you are under 40. I'm flattered, but am looking for someone close to my age. Thank you for understanding. 😀

If you are a spiritual smartie pants who loves music and animals, we will probably get along just fine... :0) I have the brain of a nerd and the heart of an artist. It also helps if you don't mind me rattling on about cool medical stuff I'm learning...

I've been a writer, editor, and a teacher. I've been a marketing director of a TV network. I have been the CEO of my own music company, where I produced over 200 music events. I'm also a musician / songwriter / singer / pianist / poet.

I have a BA in comparative literature, music and French. Also have asociate degrees in biology and chemistry from three years of med school prerequisites. Now applying to PA school so I can practice medicine. I enjoy a new challenge. I have a sincere desire to help people. I am really enjoying learning about how the human body works. I am also learning a lot about myself. I strive for self-actualization and am very compassionate.

I love to travel; been to around 16 different countries and have many travel stories to tell!

I love to laugh and learn and discover new things...very curiosity driven. My most recent nickname is "MacGyver" because I find innovative ways to solve problems. I make up my own recipes (sometimes to rave reviews, sometimes not.)

I am back with renewed faith, optimism, and an open heart! Me in a nutshell: Paris, not Vegas. Tulips, not roses. Hugs, not drugs. Hardwoods, not rugs. Poetry, not punctuation. Real, not faux. Less, not more. Cooking, not looking. Purr, not fur. Kindness, not blindness. Quiet, not riot. Thinker, not drinker. Artsy, not ???

I am a snuggleholic who is looking for the right man to pamper. My massages cure headaches. I am intensely curious and like to try new things. If I could be any famous person, I'd be Santa Claus.

I buy products not tested on animals. I give to the ASPCA, whose founder said: the measure of any society is characterized by that society's treatment of the defenseless. I adore all animals and volunteered for an animal rescue org for a couple of years. My match MUST love animals! I am exploring veganism; I need training! The stuff I've tried so far is fabulous. I can recommend a great vegan restaurant for those who are interested....

I love music, art and theater. I'm a classically trained pianist turned songwriter. I have a CD of original music that I call "spoken word beatnik trip hop." Music soothes my soul and I cannot imagine life without it. Hope you love it too. I love writing songs and poetry. I am always excited about discovering new music...

I am "low maintenance" and very anti-drama. I have a lot of love to give and I hope I find you soon!

I, in fact, don't want to "relationshop"; I actually want to get da heck off this site ASAP once I find Mr. Sparky creative intellectual nerd-word sexy-motivated music-loving man. I am a very passionate person! We will bring out the best in each other and make each other smile. You are emotionally available and you want a long-term relationship. Is that too much to ask? (P.S. I don't respond to profiles without photos...sorry.)
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing physician assistant school, learning Spanish, working at a hospital, petting kitties, writing poetry, smiling, driving, biking, dreaming, ass-kicking, climbing up Maslow's hierarchy...Dreaming of you.
I’m really good at
The best thing about me is compassion...
The worst thing about me is procrastination...LOL
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Way too many books to list. I was an English major and creative sci fi writing teacher...Big "Confederacy of Dunces" fan.

Way too much music to list. The list is always changing anyway! I'm a huge Pandora fan. My stations include Afro Celt Sound System, Brazilian Funk, Cello, Frenchie Radio, Eddie Izzard, Thievery Corporation, Adele, Jack Johnson, Van Morrison...and I'm a piano player who likes to noodle out my own songs...

Also love to cook, love to try new ethnic foods (mostly vegetarian). Love Indian and Thai food.

Not a big fan of TV -- I don't have cable -- but I have to admit I loved "Breaking Bad," "Grey's Anatomy," and "House." Okay, I will also admit that I love sci fi, and was blown away by Battlestar Galactica on NetFlix. Like indie and foreign films much more than American. Also love old films, where dialog was king and special effects were an afterthought. Love Cohen Bros. Plowing through mega TED Talks!
The six things I could never do without
constant learning
dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Ask not the meaning of life; rather, ask what do I want my life to mean?" -- me
On a typical Friday night I am
Being an anomaly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I was less introverted. I live in my head sometimes. The good news is that I'm never bored. LOL A happy happening extrovert would be good for me.
You should message me if
You're striving for self-actualization. And you are curious and kind...and the idea of love doesn't make you barf. You are passionate about a cause. You are compassionate. You love music, animals, exploring, and weekend getaways. You are fiercely intelligent and you know what you want. You have depth and are intuitive.

You actually read my profile and think we have something in common. No potheads or alcoholics, please.

Please don't contact me if you are married or separated. I want to be with someone who is ready for a relationship.

And youngsters, quit emailing me for casual sex. Ain't gonna happen. Mrs. Robinson does not live here. If you are under 40, I'm probably not interested.

As an avid fan of testing a theory, I'm going to put a code word in here and ask you to use it if you email me -- this will show me that you read my profile...haha! And the word is: kismet.
