My self-summary
At the moment I actually live in Asheville, North Carolina (a place that I love and I am deeply connected). I'm considering a move to the Boulder area (I come out there often to see my family who lives there already) so I thought I'd check in here to scope out the dating and social scene and just see what's available... I'm planning a trip that way in late August for a visit.

As I am just a few months shy of my 40th birthday, I happily reflect on my life, what I am doing with it and what I would like to manifest. I have done a great many fantastic, adventurous and wild things. I have also spent much time delving into my inner world and personal evolution. I still intend to do lots more (of both) and also am excited to embark on the next chapter of my life. In this next chapter I am calling in a beautiful, spiritual, romantic partnership where we can learn and grow together, creatively inspire each other and build a life and family. While on one hand, I am calling in some sense of more stability, I am not looking for a life that is more conservative, or less creative or interesting. I really love my life and... I'm ready for my partner in from to join me in it.

I AM... a great many things...
I am an artist, a chef, a health conscious eater, a magic maker, a priestess, an occultist, a yogi (and acro and aerials), a performer, a dancer, a sensualist, a nature-lover, a good friend and community member, a traveler, whimsical and playful faerie, a stable and resourceful adult, a burner/festival goer, a self-reflective student, a project organizer, a Virgo, a highly motivated and capable person and (at some point in the not too distant future...) a mother.

Yeah, I know it's a lot... I don't expect for my perfect man to be my exact clone... but I'd like him be my inspired equal. I am looking for someone who has also done a lot of his own personal emotional growth (as I have) and who is already strong in themselves. I know that there is a very amazing and special man out there who is just the right person for me. When he reads this... he'll know it's him...

This year I started a new career as a confidence and dating coach. It's been a beautiful transition for me to step further into my counseling side and build an online business that I can do from anywhere. As of now (like most of my adult life) I also work as a health and dietary chef with my specialty being cooking for people on spiritual retreats, mental health sabbaticals and teens in need. With them, I have the opportunity to impart my knowledge of food and it's healing and nurturing qualities while offering perspective and coaching.

I don't have any kids but I intend to have one... I'm happy to meet a guy who already has children. That would be lovely. I also want my own. If you are someone who really isn't interested in having any then please be kind enough to not mislead me.

I want to be really super clear about what I'm looking for on okcupid. While I can be a bit flexible... please understand that I am really looking for someone within my own age range and relative social scene. I'm 39. I don't really want to date someone who's in their early 20's or their 50's. Really I envision somewhere within the 33-48 range. I want someone who's ready to be in a loving beautiful, committed and mature relationship. I am not looking for a casual hookup.

As for the "social scene" thing... Yes, part of me is professional, but I am also alternative, artistic, circusy and a bit on the freaky side. I am looking for someone who is alternative-minded yet who also has their life together. Living a healthy lifestyle is a big part of my life; it is also important to me in a partner. If you are generally a pretty "normal", mainstream, run-of-the-mill kind-of guy, you're really not what I'm looking for. I'm sure that you are very sweet but you probably already know that you're not "my guy."

Congratulations on actually making it to the end of this VERY long profile. If you truly think that we could be a match, I look forward to hearing from you.
