If I were to summarize myself strong would be somewhere, if not everywhere in my definition. I am a bit exhausted with this roll, but would be dishonest to exclude its influence in me. I have spent a great deal of time alone. Which has been a gift, and has not come without its challenges. I am interested in someone who knows themselves well, and wants to know themselves better. As I do. I am interested in a relationship based on truth. I trust people more who's lives have gotten difficult, and want someone who is going to be there if the shit hits fan... because inevitably life will be challenging.
I have been conditioned as an athlete and the youngest child of 6. My family kicks ass. They are important to me.
I have never online dated before and have quite a bit of ambivalence about doing so. However, I am excited about putting some energy into creating a personal relationship in my life again. I have been single for about six years. I have dated a little bit in that time, but nothing serious. I am looking forward to having a relationship again. It makes me smile to know that it is what is next for me.
I am open minded. Liberal. A democrat. I love to ride my bike, it is a language for me of fluidity and the wind. Of grace. I used to race them, and now just love to ride them. I teach and study Yoga and cannot imagine my life without this. Yoga is much more for me than postures, it is a way of life. I believe in belief and becoming a better person. I believe in compassion. In conducting experiments that stretch my boundaries and help me understand others. My good friends are not the ones who validate me, but the ones who will tell me the truth, as they see it.
