My self-summary
I am not a high maintenance type woman, for example, I'm not into clothes, jewelry, make up, I'd rather be natural and healthy, and keep it simple, casual is more fun as its more relaxed. I'd live in jeans every day, if I could.
I am a natural blond. I prefer outdoors activities, I like to bike, hike, swim in the ocean. I am really into yoga, go at least 3x week, it has been great for me, relaxes me, creates muscle definition, tone. As it challenges me to push myself, and learn to do things I couldn't do before, I grow in confidence.

I'm political, and lean lefty, liberal and I was raised by anti-war activists, and my mom went to Woodstock. The current presidential political situation is insane. FYI-if you're voting Trump, don't bother contacting me.

I grew up reading voraciously, wasn't allowed to watch TV. So I missed out on a lot of the cultural touchstones of my generation. I'm supposed to be a Boomer, but my Mom was more of that generation than I was. I fell in with rockers and punk rockers in my 20's. Met my husband (he was in a Rock band) when I was 24, married him when I was 30, left him when I hit 50, the year our youngest left for college, I had grown and changed, he hadn't. I went back to school twice in that time. started a serious career, got involved in community activism, started practicing meditation...

I've raised two kids, I was a good mom, read to my kids, took them to museums, parks, out biking on the Charles. They turned out great. They're in their 20's now.

My Buddhist practice is an important part of my life. I'd really like to meet someone with with a similar out look on life, who I could really talk with. If not a Buddhist, at least some one who is into deepening themselves, who's introspective. But its not just talk I'm interested in - you need to be active and healthy, and grounded.
What I’m doing with my life
I've worked as a psych nurse for years, but went back to school and got my MPH a couple years ago, am now in a public health nursing position, my dream job.

I have always done what I really loved outside of work. Lots of community organizing, working on facilitating affordable housing, promoting and preserving urban green space. Now am more engaged with my buddhist sanghas/communities. I lead meditations. I helped organize an environmental conference for Buddhists recently.
I’m really good at
I'm easy to be with, no drama. I listen. And I'm fairly bright. I can go deep with you in conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall and blond
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read multiple dharma books at one time. I like comedic, and political TV, I am very much going to miss The Colbert Report, and The Daily Show! I love almost all vampire stories, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, not exactly sure why, probably all that 12th house stuff (astrological reference) all that sex, death and transformation stuff. I like Game of Thrones too, Science Fiction and fantasy in general. I like almost all types of movies, I like the way movies pull you into another reality. But not horror movies, I don't want to be scared. I don't find that fun. And I might scream.
Food? I like almost all food, except, mammals and raw fish. I'm working on the courage to eat Sushi, I still feel squeamish about it though! I mostly like fresh veggies. I like to eat healthy.
The six things I could never do without
Sleep (I need my sleep!)
Meaningfull engagement in life
My smart phone
yoga/moving my body
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, death, and what its all about...the nature of mind, human potential...climate change...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and sipping Bourbon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been exploring the idea of polyamory, as in ethical non-monogamy, but its hard to find people around my age who get it. Our culture is saturated with the concepts of jealousy and possessiveness. But then, the poly community as I've come to meet them doesn't feel like my type in general. So I'm not ruling out a committed monogamous situation, but I'm open-minded about more open situations.
You should message me if
I am getting a lot of messages from scammers lately. I can pick them out right away. So please don't bother me if you are not for real!
You should message me if you can deal with a tall, intelligent, independent woman. Especially if you like to talk about the things that really matter, that you are passionate about. Yes, I like sex, but I don't want that to be the only topic you want to launch into right away!

If you identify as "God Fearing", forget it. When I see that in a profile, its a major turn off. If I even have to explain this, forget it.

But otherwise, please, do message me. I do prefer to know that you have that much initiative, that you are interested in me. Especially if you are on the tall side :)
