In January 2014, I took a job working seasonally with Florida "snowbirds." I'm coming to the end of that contract; so, I'll be leaving Florida at the end of April (2017). Then, it's back to my Reno home for the summer. And then -- assuming no change of plans -- it looks like I will be heading to Africa, with the Peace Corps, in mid-September. So whether I'm still in Florida, or have come back home to Reno, anyone I meet will be for the short-term. I'm still open to meeting an interesting guy, but I want to be honest about my future plans . . .
I'm a high-energy, smart, funny, low-maintenance, adventuresome, independent woman. I think life is a fabulously joyous adventure! I'm a political liberal who is interested and active in various causes of social justice. I'm also a deeply involved - tho' liberal - Jew. I love travel and believe in *always* having a current passport. I'm also an avid ballroom dancer, complete with a moderate amount of training, tho' I don't always (alas!) have a partner. I don't *need* someone to make me complete; but I'd sure enjoy someone with whom to share life's wonders. I play a "mean game" of Scrabble (mostly with that dude in my Kindle). I am rarely boring. My attitude and fitness are much younger than my chronological age. To me, "age is just a number," which is to say that I'm interested in men of a wide variety of ages . . . as long as you are "young of spirit" and in something of a similar "life stage" as mine . . .
I have lots of "favorite reads," too many to mention them all. Richard North Patterson is a favorite author. In the past I've devoured Latin American magical fiction -- Garcia Marquez and Allende at the top of that list. I'm happier reading fiction, but am finding more and more non-fiction that holds my attention too.
I don't get to movies as much as I'd like, but I loved Annie Hall, American Beauty, Lars and the Real Girl, Barney's Version, Juno, Moonrise Kingdom, The Sessions, Nebraska . . . to name a few. Pretty much anything by the Coen brothers also.
Even better than movies is live theater, which I love! I've been known to just "hop a plane" to NYC for a good show on Broadway. (London was great for theater also!) In music, I like most "oldies," easy jazz, and even an occasional country song (some of them are really hysterical).
Social justice and interfaith/diversity work
Faith (of the liberal, social justice sort)
Good/supportive friends and community
Sex! (ok, one extra . . .)
In the Sanibel area, I'm just looking to meet people . . . especially potential dance partners!
P.S. In the past, I've answered anyone/everyone who messaged me. It seems rude not to. But then I got a ton of spam! So, if we are clearly NOT well-matched and/or you haven't completed your profile or answered Match Questions, then don't expect to hear back from me. Sorry . . .
P.P.S. As above, if you're looking for the long-term, my approaching life plans mean that I won't be for you.
