I am an attractive, serious minded but playful woman with a wry sense of humor, looking to foist a tremendous amount of affection upon the right partner. While I value my independence, I have an increasing need to have someone special laugh at my jokes, share inane conversation, hold me and make smiling a habit. Most important to me is the ability to feel comfortable talking with my partner and feel like I’ve been heard. You will recognize yourself when I say I want an equal partner, someone who will stand up to me and for me, someone who wants, and will get, a soft place to fall. When necessary, and it always is, we are each others' respite, reprieve and comic relief. I am happiest when trying something new because it reminds me that the world is an infinitely interesting place. But I'm also prone to hunker down with a good book, cook, watch movies, and stay in bed with you. Our attraction for each other is visceral and sensual and it neither starts nor ends in the bedroom. Because fitness and attraction are important and because body image is subjective, slender means I vacillate between a size 4 and 6. The pictures are from May 2011 (don't have more recent photos but I look the same), I'm really 52 and this is what it looks like on me.
In a city full of smart men - you're warm, sensual, sexual and know the difference. I appreciate people who are thoughtful and articulate about their life and the world around them (strong, silent types need not apply) and there are still things that incite and inspire you. My world is a politically liberal one and open mindedness is important to me. Since I work out, and want to lead an active lifestyle, I prefer men who actually play sports or work out rather than just watch. Culture in your life is not limited to the yogurt sitting in your fridge and you know that kindness is the strongest aphrodisiac.
Lastly, I am very allergic to smoke and dogs.
