I am an adventurer, dreamer, lover, student, and seeker, a playful, easy going, thoughtful, and in her prime woman. It doesn’t take much to make me happy, although I enjoy and am comfortable with nice things/places. I am a bit introverted—reflected in my need to have some alone time to recharge—but I can strike up a conversation with anyone and am a good listener. I have a serious side, and I am really quite funny, which I enjoy. I read somewhere that laughing with a friend is a direct way to connect with the Divine. I have more questions than answers. I am in good shape/health and have a lot of energy. I intentionally walk in the rain, listen for the hawk's cry, and point my face into the wind.
I’ve lived in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York and for most of my adult life in the Atlanta area, both in town and in surrounding areas. I do hear and respond to that different drummer, and my life reflects that. I’ve had a varied career, lived aboard a sailboat and on an island in the Caribbean, and I returned to college later in life to earn a graduate degree. I recently retired (early) from a job where I worked way too many hours, and I am eager to use my time differently and enjoy life.
My likes and interests are many and range from the formal to the very informal, from the serious to the lighthearted. I read the comics and the dictionary, and I enjoy taking day trips and completing projects around the house. I love to travel and explore different cultures/languages. Being in nature, especially water, is essential. Relationships—friends and family—are key. Personal growth, openness, integrity, and balance are values I hold.
I am definitely spiritual but not religious. I do some work with a shaman and find it meaningful. In this regard, I am not typical. My search for meaning has not been satisfied in organized religion. A man who holds tightly to his Christian convictions and is not able to accept/value other paths would not be a match.
I am sensitive, intuitive, curious and intelligent--love to learn and experience new things--independent, free spirited, sensual, and quite youthful.
I'm looking for a man who is resilient, kind, honest, and thoughtful, one who smells good and has a great laugh. There is that mysterious thing called chemistry between us. I like the way I feel when with him; he brings out the best in me and I in him. He is neither clingy, controlling, nor insecure. Like me, he has a twinkle in his eye. He is active, fit, and adventurous.
I enjoy almost all types of music except country and heavy metal. Had season tickets to the opera for a few years.
I read everything, even cereal boxes; don't watch much TV; love movies but don't watch ones that contain violence, which I fail to find entertaining.
I listen to a lot of NPR.
Water--Drinking it, yes, but here I am more specifically referring to geting IN it.
Nature--being in, reveling in, and appreciating our natural world in all its forms.
Personal growth (a broad, all-inclusive category)
