I am an incorrigible night owl and rabid restaurant worker. I work in a famous Portland Restaurant. I love the way restaurant people are real. We see a huge cross section of life. So, we have a deep understanding of people. That is simply the truth, from having had so much exposure to social behaviors. We also "shoot from the hip", use truncated and efficient speech, and swear a lot. If you are a restaurant person, you get this and you aren't offended by it. Of course, I can and do have deep conversations, but efficient communication has its place too.
I love to travel and am off and running as often as I can. Asia is my newest destination. I spent a month in Thailand recently.
South America and NOLA are two of my favorite jaunts. If you are into jazz, happy with your life, liberal politically, educated and into communicating, we may well have a nice time meeting up for coffee or sumpin'. I am always happy to make a new friend.
What I am not doing is looking to be the rescuer for a newly single or newly widowed man with children. I get a lot of that kind of request from men and, honestly, it is just not where I am at. I have been single a long time, it has great benefits and its downsides. I am mostly past the heartache of divorce. I understand the position that these newly heartbroken men are in, but I need someone who has moved on and is happy with their life. I need an emotionally mature and responsible man who takes care of his own life.
I am happy everyday. My life is full. There aren't enough hours in a day to see all of my friends and family and get the rest of the work of life completed. I just seem to have problems finding the right dude. But, he is out there somewhere. A lot of us seem to have this same struggle.
Interestingly enough, when I was younger, I mostly dated older men. Now that I am older, I mostly date younger men. Not that I am ruling out men my age range. It would probably be smarter of me to date men my age. It just doesn't seem to be what has happened of late. Although I am in my fifties, I have no intent to "act my age". Life is short. I am grabbing the brass rings, baby.
I have spent a lot of time in Latin America and I do enjoy a lot of Latin Jazz. I also listen to classical and other genres. But, mostly contemporary or older jazz greats and a lot of Latin music is what will be heard flowing out of the windows in my home.

You have at least one degree or achievements thereabouts. I am not ruling out artsy types or men who don't have degrees. I just have my reasons for wanting a motivated man. I am not saying that I am A-mode, but I am not attracted to non-motivated men. Being bilingual helps ; there is just something hot about a bilingual mind. You manage your own successful life. You want to make a new friend, no expectations.....and just see where life naturally takes us.
Intelligence is hot.
Strong communicators are hot.
"Get shit done" kinda men are hot.
Honesty is hot.
