I value honesty, good sense of humor, ability to listen, and flexibility in attitude and views.
I am a political scientist by training and work as a social science researcher. I have a ten year old son whose custody I share with my ex-. I am a devoted mother, so I would appreciate someone who can understand the level of commitment that requires.
I am into yoga, hiking, and lots and lots of reading. I read both fiction and non-fiction, high- and low-brow stuff, classics. I am a certified New York Times junkie. I am fairly involved in politics and love a good political discussion, even (and maybe especially) if we disagree.
I am extremely close to my family - we are a small but devoted to each other bunch.
I grew up in Ukraine and have been in the US since high school. I would love to share my culture with you and cook you a good Eastern European meal.
I am always interested in improving my fitness level and so, if you are ready to take me on, would love someone fairly active and interested in doing health and fitness related activities together.
