Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmmmm. Life is fun & full, with galleries, museums, plays &
travel This year I led a delegation to Eastern Europe (besides my 9
other trips in the US), 2 years ago was Istanbul, 3 years ago was
I'd say loyalty is one of my strengths, I have - & keep- a ton
of friends. Therefor I'm interested in an urbanite who enjoys
socializing; whether it's parties, lectures, the theatre, Burning
Man or the Fremont Fair. As an unabashed city-slicker I'm NOT
looking for those proverbial romantic sunsets beach walks or a
hiking or biking partner, though willing to leave city limits for
road trips. Love 'em!
Presume from my photos it's obvious that I also love fashion (and
am known for my unique style). But I'm not a complete airhead, and
I realize that dressing up is more about fun (and it's NOT about
how much you can spend, quite the opposite) than narcissism.
Clothes are also an art-form, one too oft overlooked here in
I do love animals, & since living in the PC NW I write my quota
of political action letters, from animal rights to politics and
women's issues. I also do a lot of volunteering (though sometimes
it's just to get into a gala without spending the $150 on a
ticket!). In other words, like most of us, I'm a mass of
contradictions: a broke but always bill-payin' long-time
home-ownin' artist. I will say that I'm far less flaky than I look,
creative but as "down to earth" as they come..

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to DO a lot & live within the Seattle city limits (or
conversely, in Texas, California, anywhere SUNNY & urban! I AM
willing to move, & love hopping on a plane). And if you want to
actually MEET (Noone seems to on this thing, are they all married?
Or 20 years older than their picture? I'm baffled by the preference
for steady stream of e-mails but not a quick cup of coffee
introduction). In terms of 'type', or whom I'm attracted to, well,
I do like guys a little more machismo than some of the mellow PC
Seattleites, I tend to be drawn to the East Coast or Texans with
that humour, slight edge, & old-fashioned manners. As a
"visual" person I have the excuse to have a slight bias towards
looks, so please be in reasonable shape. Extra points for full head
of hair and more style than polar fleece. I know, I know, it's
shallow. And unrealistic?
