My interests vary; I enjoy a wide-range of activities and hobbies. I enjoy reading, outdoor activities, and can easily get addicted to a TV show (Breaking Bad, The Wire, Orange is the New Black). While I enjoy the outdoors a lot and it would be ideal if my match did as well, I also like going out for a dirty martini and a great meal (Providence is full of amazing restaurants that support local farmers...love it!). I have a fairly "green" and healthy lifestyle and love to bake bread and grow my own organic vegetables when I can; eating well is a priority! Meditation/mindfulness is a cornerstone practice for me.
Though I don't have children of my own, I do enjoy them quite a bit. My favorite person in the world is my 7 year old niece.
As for who I'm looking for.....I have found that listing a bunch of traits is not all that useful since all of that can go out the window when I meet someone and it just clicks. Kindness, authenticity, and a reasonable amount of self awareness are, however, definite musts in all of my close friendships. And, availability for and interest in the possibility of creating a long-term (fabulous, healthy, fun) relationship is also essential.
