My self-summary
I am an independent, feminine, gutsy, playful, vulnerable, self-sufficient woman. I am sensitive and analytical, and I say what I mean without playing games. I have been a risk taker and adventurer to finally get where I want to be. I like to travel – particularly spontaneous road trips – (I am not a snowbird), and trying new things. My political point of view is all over the map. I am a dual American/Israeli citizen (lived there for 17 years), and that influences my outlook on life.
What I’m doing with my life
I am committed to achieving a simple, country life that I was meant to live without it becoming a social or political cause. That goes with being a homebody. I like to cook, entertain (casually), decorate my home, do chores and garden and I appreciate being acknowledged for it. I'm in forced retirement. I look forward to having a ceramics studio soon and am building a community non-profit for artisans – I believe in values-based work and being active in community, helping others and social justice (without the baggage of undeserved entitlement).
I’m really good at
I am rediscovering my talents and interests in ceramics, gardening, baking. Making friends – let's see if that translates into relationships.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I smile a lot. I am easy to get to know and am faithful to the friends I make.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Mask, Silkwood, Steel Magnolias – Cher is a better actress than singer. Books: Anything by Ken Kesey or John Steinbeck. Music: Classic Rock before the mid 80's, New Age Jazz, Contemporary Israeli, Classical – I Hate Rap... yep – that's a song (Confederate Railroad), and some other Country music. Food: anything authentically ethnic.
Six things I could never do without
Physical affection, good friends, contact with my spiritual and cultural source, my own home, open space, the hope that I will find the next love of my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'd like to spend time with someone I care deeply about. Getting to know my community and building a social circle around that special person and this place I love to call home.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home trying to make a separation between the week and the weekend. This is hard because I am newly retired and there isn't much difference in the days of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now that I am no longer on a career path, my energy has turned into a sensuality I haven't experienced for 30 years. I am feeling the urgency about this part of my life. I put off bringing someone into it and only recently was awakened to the fact of how important this to me. Life is like a roll of toilet paper – the closer to the end we get, the faster it goes. I just noticed the speed, but have a lot left on the roll.
You should message me if
I am looking for a long-term, committed relationship. I am seeking someone who appreciates living in the country in the Inland Northwest (Please do not respond if you are not in the Inland Northwest. I have found that long-distance relationships don't work and I am not going to relocate again). I am attracted to someone who is intelligent, honest, trustworthy and faithful, respects his chosen partner, and honors those qualities in me, has a sense of humor. My match will never put a woman down, but knows how to appropriately show anger, and how to agree to disagree. It is important to me that he lives a values-based life and will stand up for his views, and respects his lady's right to her own views. I respect that he loves his family, but doesn't expect his lady to be part of his family drama. He gets to know her friends and family, but does not judge them or keep her from them. I am financially independent but not wealthy. I am not in a position to support a "dependent". I want a man who is comfortable in his own male skin without apologies or effort, and who likes women enough that it's not her shape or a pretty face that is attractive to him, but the inner glow he brings out. He knows about seduction and chemistry and understands that a woman enjoys/needs the intimacy underlying sex.
;-) A Harley Davidson (or other large touring bike) would be a bonus. I love the life… the older the bike, the more it vibrates!
The two of us
