Hi! I see myself first as a potential committed life partner,
writer, explorer, helper, and friend. I absolutely love my career,
dancing, hiking, traveling, and connecting with others. At bottom,
I thrive on exploration and learning: forms of dance, nuances and
depths in people and relationships, and new places.
I strongly value passion, integrity, openness, and independence,
and I’m drawn to women who exemplify these traits. I also want a
partner who, like me, loves laughter and play but who keeps her eye
on the prize--living fully and growing.
Hey partner to be: Are you flourishing or striving to do so? Are
you open, playful, quirky, tall or tallish, fit or slim, and happy?
