Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a healthy and happy woman with great enthusiasm for life and a
deep capacity for love and generosity. I’d describe myself as
intelligent, passionate, artistic, authentic, feisty and a little

I'm looking for a long-term relationship with a man who is
easy-going, open-minded, curious, and most of all, happy. I’d like
to find someone who values intelligence, motivation, and
creativity, and who enjoys life’s simple pleasures.
I hope to build a lasting partnership with a healthy mix of warmth,
affection, playfulness, and sensuality. I offer loyalty, affection,
support, communication, and the space you need to pursue individual
interests. I hope for the same from my partner.

dabble in). I like fiction and nonfiction. Music: Everything from
Beethoven to Led Zeppelin. Not big on hokey country stuff or acid

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I am committed to certain things (learning, community, the
environment, social justice), but I am not an ideologue. I find
wisdom in many places: across the political spectrum, in different
religious traditions, etc.
I am neither a pessimist nor naive. I understand the many problems
