Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Happy go lucky (tho I'm of Russian background,so there's a serious
side), fun-loving and active, appreciate men who are thoughtful,
trusting, considerate, generous with emotions and time. Men who've
taken risks (as have I), have loved and sometimes lost, but gained
more. But most importantly, I love being in a loving, passionate
and sharing relationship--more on that if I get to know you
ABQ's been home for many years, but I'm European born and bring a
cosmopolitan view to the world. Try to be politically sensitive,
and my anarcho-libertarian son has opened my eyes to new
perspectives. Been exploring various forms of Buddhism lately, but
more interested in it as a model for living and a way to meditation
than as a spiritual practice. What else? What I love: travel,
movies, reading good books, fiction and non, good photography, most
music. Latest reads: Windup Girl; Blood, Bones & Butter; Patti
Smith's memoir; currently plowing thru some Murakami.
Healthy living, scrumptious food (cooked by me and others), regular
exercise are big parts of my life and I like people with some of
the same values. Oh and did I mention my beautiful granddaughter
Kaia, growing up an Aussie. So drop me a line if some of this
interests you. If you're not pretty well educated, financially
solid, and physically active, we probably wouldn't do so well, but
otherwise I'm open.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Retired two years ago from UNM, now finding new challenges in
adventure travel (walked the Tour de Mont Blanc in 2015, a big
chunk of the Camino de Santiago in 2014, planning trips to
Australia and Patagonia in 2016). And these are self-guided (with
friends)--no tours or cruises for me, for now. Active in the
international, dancing and hiking scenes in ABQ.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
drawing out people in conversations; negotiating tricky life
situations; living a rich life; cooking; attracting good looking,
sensuous, smart men :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

see above; also Portland Cello Project, tapas and truffle fries, a
wonderful meal anywhere out in the open; books too numerous to list
(currently on my bedside table: Vanhoenacker's Skyfaring, Jo
Nesbo's mysteries); foreign and indy movies that I love to watch in
a real theater
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friendship/companionship, excting sex, good music, good food,
travel, NYT/New Yorker, that late night read
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
family/relationships, next travel plan, where life will take me
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out and about: movies, dancing, celebrating with friends; saturdays
are better for home-based stuff
