Some things are a given, life without my niece and nephew isn't worth living; I prefer healthy food to junk, I consider myself deeply open-minded and care a lot about gender issues. I'm liable to be found dissertating about female roles as directed by toy manufacturers, how mainstream media diminishes women, how women diminish themselves and so on (and civic design and restaurant workflow and ) Fortunately I'm aware of this and other buttons so it's not too hard to head me off at the pass.
I'm an active human being and I love being outside in all seasons, but particularly when the sun is out and the heat is on, and I become miserable if I go too long without at least an afternoon spent outside among trees or natural landscape. There may be nothing sweeter than lolling under a tree at the beach on a sunny day; but if there is it probably involves hiking in the woods or exploring a new (or familiar) place.
Now who I'm looking for? A real person looking for a real relationship. The kind of partnership where we both feel lucky, blessed, safe and able to be our vulnerable selves. Also laughter, quiet, adventure and conversation; lots of those. Someone who is more attracted to what is inside me than to what their eyes see...
Warning: I will compulsively try on your glasses or hat and I brake for butterflies.
