My self-summary
Would you like to get to know a wonderful woman?
UPDATE: While I am looking for a long term relationship, I am also looking for people to join me at cultural events. I often have tickets at short notice -- and if you're a charming companion, you could be enjoying plays and concerts with me!
Now back to the profile....

The more I learn and grow, the more I want someone to grow with me. Ideally someone who wants to live in the same place as their partner. Certainly someone who wants to create a win-win, a better life for both of us.

I'm good at being single, but better at being in love. I think love is a verb -- something you choose to do. That way it lasts past initial infatuation. Lives shared can be lives improved with the right people (people who care enough to find solutions instead of focusing on problems).

I have been called "classy, youthful and charming." I've also been called "fun", "bright" and "a Renaissance woman."

I like smart people, good conversations, warmth and honesty.

In the last few years I have spent 3 weeks in northern France, 4 weeks in Italy, a couple of weeks in Budapest and Saltzburg and a week in Crete. I've also gone diving in the Bahamas, to Barcelona and the Canary Islands, and to three parts of Portugal. Planning my next trip, this time to Thailand. If you want to join me, you should contact me now! Next year -- where would you like to go? I've been to 26 counties, and I'm not through yet.However, as much as I value travel and would LOVE to find someone to travel with, it's still a pretty small part of my life. Maybe two or three weeks a year. So how we get along here in Toronto matters even more.

I recently completed my second Masters degree, this time in Counselling Psychology.

I am smart, kind, and loving. And a good cook, so I've been told. Mostly I'm just a really good bet for the long haul, if you're sane and good-hearted and want the same. Looking forward to meeting you!
What I’m doing with my life
I have retrained, so now I make my living with a combination of counselling and writing. My paying work used to involve writing. We are in a massive change involving all advertising and media (death of traditional print media, loss of ad revenue, related death of most well-paying journalism jobs), so it's good to have more than one skill. Thank goddess I already bought my house! I have considered starting an early travelling retirement based somewhere warm, but I'd rather have a partner to go with.
I’m really good at
being affectionate and open
learning new things
The first things people usually notice about me
my very pleasant voice
my outgoing and open nature
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love almost all quality fiction and non-fiction. Love most plays, much jazz, many ethnic foods. Mostly like all things cultural and sensual.
Six things I could never do without
good food
music I enjoy (female jazz vocalists, for example)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I can further optimize my life

how I can help others and myself at the same time

how much I would like someone to team up with so we both win
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out with a friend. Unless I am cooking dinner for a friend at my house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can get pretty ticked off when I learn someone has lied to me.
You should message me if
You are sincere, emotionally available and look for long term friends, not hit and run encounters. I am open to living with the right person, because I think that as we mature, life is better shared.
The two of us
