My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Savvy entrepreneur with the soul of an artist and a sharp-witted mind. Highly attuned to beauty, vulnerability, sensuality and magic while rooted in the here and now.

Vibrantly creative designer of my life & surroundings—my home is a beautiful oasis. Open hearted, honest, articulate, self aware and kind. The right man gets exclusive access to my wild provocative side, and trust me, it's worth the effort.

My work engages and rewards me, taking me to places like Amsterdam where I bought the sexiest pair of shoes ever the Amsterdam shoes. (You will love them.)

I identified a wee bit with Up in the Air. This mileage whore accumulates points religiously, has great travel karma and gives my hotel toiletries to a homeless shelter.

I’m politically astute and spiritually attuned but not dogmatic about anything, except kindness. Definitely kindness.

I lean left...previously worked in politics for the enviro's and led a successful effort to protect 73 acres of forest in my neighborhood. I like knowing there are trees that will be around long after I'm gone.

Ask me about my stint as the Erin Brokovich of GA, traveling with a portable copier & stack of FOIA requests, eventually stripping $1 million from the bad guys and saving a few rivers in the process, and the work I still do for GA's rivers.

My soulful artistic side revels in moments of exquisite beauty, like when I drove a convertible at night through the New Mexico high desert, stars stretching from one horizon to the other.

Fresh snowfall delights me as if I'm a little girl again. Every time. (I grew up in Chicago so I love four seasons.)

I love wind and how light reflects on water. Take me someplace gorgeous in nature and I will be a happy grateful girl. Plus there's something about kissing while the wind is caressing your skin or when your toes are sinking into sand and waves....

Yoga, pilates and dancing have made my body strong and supple. Dancing is not a cliché with me, it’s a luscious spiritual practice I do twice a week to sweat my prayers. Moving my body = joy.

Yoga (I have been with a true guru) has attuned me to the exquisite presence of the moment, energy and breath.

I'm mesmerized when a man exudes presence, when he can hold me or command me with just his gaze. The right look wielded well could actually set me on fire let alone what happens when he consciously breathes on me....

The owner’s manual for my approach to sexuality would be David Deida’s books. I believe in the transcendent power of flesh as a prayer mat (thank you Anais Nin) and the poetry of intimacy. I want to explore my edges with a man who can take me beyond them.

It took me a while before I understood men—how you think, what motivates you, how you love. Now I truly get how different you are and I appreciate those delicious differences.

A purposeful man accomplishing his mission in the world is a huge turn on. I admire your focus. Love watching you go the extra mile to make something better and seeing your generous heart in action.

I want to lean into my man’s strength and direction. I’m no pushover but I know that a man of integrity has a more refined sense of direction than I’ll ever have and I’m happy to let you lead.

I spend a lot of time being successful in my work in the world and sometimes I just want to feel like a girl. I need a man who lets me be a girl with him.

I want to feel your cloak of protection around my tender heart so my heart can soften even more. Likewise, I will be your refuge from the world and your balm.

A man with a plan makes me hot. If you say, “Baby, pack a bag we’re going away this weekend,” all I need to know is what kind of shoes to bring. And don’t worry, I’ll surprise you sometimes too, I’m creative that way.

I crave witty, funny conversation that goes deep at times. Better yet, witty, funny, deep, sexy conversation. About communication, I know that praise is more motivating than criticism and I promise to gently tell you what I'm feeling so you don't have to guess.

You have a dynamic career and life as do I, but we also know when to put that aside. When I step on the plane to see you, I’ll deliciously spend every mile thinking about how you ignite, envelope and invade me.

I want people to say wow, they are true partners: two powerful people and no power struggle because we deliciously compliment each other rather than compete.

But first things first, let's start by meeting and see what happens... there are a lot of ways this could go....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Consulting, strategizing, designing & facilitating using visual & creative processes. I've been in the HBR, the NYT's and worked with Victoria's Secret. ;)

Writing a book on leadership & vulnerability.

Daydreaming about compromising positions.

Scoping out locations in the Caribbean for painting retreats.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fast Scrabble + visioning + singing Thunder Road a cappella + sexting + driving fast (not at the same time the sexting and driving fast) + taking photos + napping + creating a home that feels like a retreat (I’m a Cancer so its part of the package) + making breakfast: fresh juice, omelette, blueberry name it + listening + dancing for you + taking sexy selfies + racing sailboats + paddle boarding.
The first things people usually notice about me

Too much to list, an eclectic mix--everything from Springsteen to Nina Simone with Nick Drake, Drive by Truckers, Van Morrison and Eva Cassidy mixed in. Plus a lot of dance. My desert island disk: Astral Weeks. Let's compare our various iProducts to find out what we have in common.
The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Yes, The Pillow Book, Rory O'Shea was here, Charlie Wilson's War, Out of Africa, Shakespeare in Love, Lars and the Real Girl, Becoming Jane, The King’s Speech, Lincoln, The Social Network
The Signature of All Things, West with the Night, All the Pretty Horses, everything by James Salter, Lives of the Saints, Cold Mountain, though I mostly read non-fiction these days, everything by David Deida
shows: Downton Abbey, anything by Aaron Sorkin--West Wing, Veep, The Good Wife, Homeland, House of Cards, Outlander
things I love:
The wind + farmers markets + sand and salt on my body + dark chocolate + cocktails that take time to make like an Aviation + the scent of a frangipani + people who live authentic daring lives + mangoes + gooey paint (especially glitter paint) + the turquoise blue of the ocean + ice skating + sail boats.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
an intimate partner
my family, especially at Thanksgiving
the ocean and my bikini
dark chocolate
laughter, the kind that makes you snort thru your nose
kissing...I really love kissing and then what comes after...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I keep getting hit on by 20-27 year olds. (I don't really spend a lot of time thinking about this its just funny that I do.)

When did men forget what their phone used to do before texting was invented.

Where I'm going to go to surf camp this summer.

The delicious differences between men and women.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Could be any of these things: drinks & dinner with friends, sailing in the summer, flying back into town, hanging out in my neighborhood at an outdoor dance party, barefoot in my kitchen pouring champagne and cooking something up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a hot holy passion for peanut butter.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are mastering what you do, enjoy your mission/purpose and are rewarded for it. You are making the world a better place.

You are deep and strong in your masculine sense of self so that my constantly changing feminine emotions won't sway you. I'm the river, you are the river bank. Steady. Strong. A rock.

You have an edge. A gentleman who is not always a gentle man. You know how to deliver (and back up) a delicious threat.

You know that opening a woman’s heart is a worthy pursuit. You want to help me become my better self by gifting your strength, focus, generosity, humor, direction and presence. And you know when I need to be thrown back into my body, into pure feeling.

You know how to nurture a woman's heart and/or you're willing to learn and really listen to what she needs to feel safe and adored.

You are evolved; you’ve done the work. You value the gifts of your previous relationships. If you're a father, there's nothing sexier (okay, there might be one or two things that are sexier) than a man who gives his whole heart and attention to his kids.

You’re attracted to a woman’s confidence and can provide a safe shelter for her tenderness and vulnerability.

You won’t freak out when I ask you your birth date, time and place so I can look at your astrological chart—its how us evolved women check a man out.

Bonus points: You can teach me how to surf.

You’re tall because I love wearing high heels and so do you. Wait, you love for ME to wear high heels. Not you. Never you.

You like a woman who will challenge you (in a good way) with her intelligence, wit and provocation and you know exactly what to do when she pushes just too far...

Mostly I want you to leave me breathless and wanting more.

PS- I get A LOT of email. Monosyllabic greetings/compliments and sentences less than five words typically don't motivate me to respond. Neither does "How was your weekend?" C'mon, you're dealing with a creative intelligent woman here, hopefully my profile inspires you to write something that's more than the linguistic equivalent of a grunt, yes? (that's a hint) :)

Because I delete so much crap, I get the "very selective" rating. DON'T let that deter you if you are sincere.

And guys, online dating can feel somewhat unsafe for a woman. The more time you take to paint a full picture of who you are, the safer I will feel responding to you.

ps--I'm really 49 but use 45 for search purposes partly because I'm defying my age and because a lot of men have written off women over 45. Just don't expect a typical 49-year old.
