Socially, I prefer small, low-key get-togethers or quiet/nurturing activities. My spiritual practice and love of nature form the foundation of my life. I have a regular meditation practice and attend various workshops, classes and retreats related to Eastern spirituality and personal growth. I don’t take anything for granted and live my life with a spirit of gratitude – for my health, my family, my friends, all the Bay Area has to offer…and so much more! (I’m not perfect by any means, but I’d like to think of myself as a “diamond in the rough.”)
I'm seeking a kindred spirit -- someone open to friendship first as well as evolving chemistry -- someone mature, spiritually grounded (but not above being silly at times), who loves being in nature, comfortable with her life direction, committed to growing, evolving and making a difference in the world, intellectually curious, possessing a spirit of shared exploration -- someone with a sense of humor about the irrationalities of life, who values honest communication but is equally comfortable sharing moments of silent loving presence, and is not afraid of a man expressing his feelings.
Rather than the let's-meet-for-dinner-where-we-feel-every-moment-has-to-be-taken-up-by-conversation type of dating, I prefer more activity-oriented get-togethers -- things which nurture my spirit and/or my mind. Do you enjoy checking out museums? going for a hike? reading plays? exploring a new neighborhood? attending festivals? Great! If we don't click, at least we've had a good time doing what we love. And if we click as just friends, also Great!, since I deeply believe that the love and support friendships provide are just as important as finding "the one."
I'm not so much looking for "romance" as for that spark of resonance and commonality which can plant the seed of friendship and connection. I also know that the development of deep, trusting friendships that have the potential to become much more, is an unhurried, gradual, organic process. Care to be a co-traveler on that journey?
