Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After years in traditional jobs, I struck out a few years ago to
have the life that I want to live, to discover my purpose, and to
be happy (what a concept!) So having reduced stress, lost weight,
found me inside all of the coverings of the past, I am wanting to
have people in my life who share similar perspectives and want to
live life to its fullest. I am interested in finding others who are
seeking their own personal visions of fulfillment that coincide
One of the challenges of meeting people in this environment is that
so many people have the potential of being partners in crime, but
the reality is that few will ultimately be interested in engaging
on the meaningful personal level that is necessary to sustain a
nurturing relationship. I do find this challenging because in spite
of all the clues the questions et al give, it comes down to whether
or not there's a fit, and whether or not there is a mutual interest
in doing the work to build and sustain a relationship.
I've met some wonderful men here whose paths crossed mine but
aren't going in the same direction. And since we are each on our
own life paths, I don't pretend to think that any of us will fit so
perfectly together that it can happen without effort and
commitment. That being said, the journey of exploration can be fun,
enlightening and energizing, and I'm up for that if you are.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Former librarian and educator now in private practice as a
hypnotherapist and reiki master. Besides work, I'm getting into
music of all sorts, particularly house concerts and small venue
performances. I love theater, music, the arts, and creativity of
all kinds especially in areas where I have appreciation but little
to no talent to create myself. I took up sailing a couple of years
ago and with a bit of time I hope to become proficient and spend
more time on the water.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, conversation and most things social

Well one expects librarians to be great readers with a long list of
books to name, but I have one of those minds that captures ideas
and forgets where I found them. I am always reading, but not
usually fiction - except on those occasions of escape like
I love live theater and always make time for broadway shows anytime
I am in New York. The last show I saw was the Book of Mormon in Los
Angeles - it was cheaper to get good seats there than lousy seats
in San Francisco - and that's including the transportation!
Last live music was BB King who was awesome, though I like most
kinds of music that's melodic. Not a big fan of opera - its all
those words that get in the way of the music (I'm sure I offend
some by saying that, so sorry). I love ballet because of the mix of
music and dance, but live theater of all kinds from little 25 seat
shows to big hits are all on my to do list.
I'm a foodie and like to eat adventurously, so I both like to eat
out and cook. I actually love to cook particularly seasonal foods.
I tend towards healthy eating but that doesn't mean low flavor by
any means. I do a pretty good job on indian, Mexican and middle
eastern foods since they have similar flavor profiles, but am
always up for a challenge and to try something new.

You see yourself as a whole person and are open and aware of
yourself and the world around you. Also that you see your
involvement with a partner as a complete experience and not just
one for sexual gratification.
