I am searching for a man who is expressive, kind, playful, flexible, and comfortable in social settings. I am open to new experiences and hope you would be as well. You do not need to share all my passions and interests, as long as you can respect my choices and are willing to compromise.
I would love to find someone who shares my love for travel! However, I prefer not to travel across the country to date you. I'm focusing on men in Michigan, northern Ohio, northern Indiana, and maybe Windsor.
I would prefer someone who does not have children, but am willing to compromise if they are fairly grown and independent.
I am a non-smoker -- any use of tobacco products (even the occasional cigar) is a deal-breaker for me.
To learn more about whether we'd be compatible, check our answers to the questions that OK Cupid offers. For now, I'll just sum up by saying that I'd like a man who is self-sufficient and responsible but young in spirit, with a sense of mission or desire for involvement in a cause larger than oneself.
I recently joined a gym and am doing strength training as well as taking various aerobic classes (Aqua Fit and cycling). I'm already seeing results and am working on revamping my eating habits. (The Clean Eating plan looks like the best option for me, although I don't plan to completely cut out eating at restaurants. Those instances are few and far between for me, anyway.)
In light of the current administration, I will likely become more involved in political activities dealing with women's and environmental issues. (I missed the Women's March on Washington the weekend after the presidential inauguration, but could see myself participating in a future march.) I would like for any potential dating partner to have similar political views, even if he couldn't himself be an activist.
In general, I enjoy movies with these kinds of themes: musicians/bands; science fiction (especially time travel); counter-culture; and environmental/social justice. Horror movies of the blood-and-guts variety completely turn me off.
I currently wind down late in the evening with reruns of whatever comedies or sci-fi shows are broadcasting on commercial television (I'm one of those folks who has a converter box and antenna instead of cable TV, Roku device, etc.) One of my local stations has been broadcasting episodes from all of the "Star Trek" series (depending on my energy level, I may catch "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager"). Once the new season starts, I'll likely start once again checking out "The Big Bang Theory", "The Flash", "iZombie", "Legends of Tomorrow", and "The 100". (Sometimes on my laptop the day after the actual broadcast.)
I especially like music from the 60s and 70s, although I also enjoy some of the current stuff. In terms of general styles, I prefer rock, folk, and some country music.
Cheese is one food I could never give up. In terms of cultural cuisine, I'm open to pretty much anything, except meat that came from any creature I might consider to be a pet.
My profile is as detailed as it is because I don't want to waste your time. If you haven't already read all the way through my profile, please do so now. If you send me a question about something the answer to which is clearly stated in my profile, it will not reflect well on you. 8-)
Please include a recent photo of yourself; and please do not attempt a conversation if you are married or separated (i.e., not yet completely divorced). I am not looking for an affair or to be part of a polyamorous or open relationship. I am a one-man woman looking for a one-woman man.
