My dream is to someday retire and circumnavigate the globe. I feel like I've worked hard and it's time to play. Don't take this the wrong way, but I want to experience the sensual part of life. I don't mean that I'm a party girl, at all. Just that the world is filled with beautiful sights, sounds, and smells, and I want to seek those things out and really enjoy them fully.
I have a serious meditation practice. I feel it has truly added a great deal to my life and a depth I couldn't experience without it. I don't expect my partner to have the same practices. However, I wonder if a my S/O could understand me without having done some type of personal growth work of a sort.
I like all kinds of music (i.e. rock, classical, jazz, big band, etc.) My favorite is classic rock. My least favorite would be most rap and some country.
OK. That's it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll be back to add to this. : )
Music: Classic rock & Classical. (like most everything, but rap. not a big fan of the word "Ho", unless it's in a joke.)
Movies: I love spy movies. Bourne Trilogy, The American, ...
Books: Not a big fiction reader these days. I just started reading "The Brain That Changes Itself" by Norman Doidge, MD

love and affection
Sometimes thinking about how to stay in the present moment without forgetting my To Do List & schedule.
For the most part, people have been very nice, kind, polite, & humorous. I had one recent occasion where the individual became belligerent after my 2nd reply. My reply was friendly and polite and unprovoking. And even though I didn't take the anger personally (one never knows what personal suffering is happening for him)... still, as a woman, I find an angry, belligerent man to be very frightening. I have met people online that hadn't worked out and we became good friends, but the one frightening experience almost stop me from ever logging on again. My good friend, whom I've met online, encouraged me back here and said that a dating website is a mixed bag and to think of all the nice people I've met outweighing the risk of one dude who lost it. Lesson learned: Not everyone practices ahimsa.
