My self-summary
I am adventurous, inquisitive, and classy... a bright, affectionate, playful spirit, ready to laugh who desires...

the company of a GOOD man--an exquisite soul--who lives near me and who is one of my best friends and

becomes one of the great loves of my life with whom to share a long-term monogamous relationship of substance and joy!

(FYI: If you wonder why I answered "other" for Religion in the Details section, I subscribe to the Unitarian-Universalist principles.)

(FYI II: I use the "Like" button because, if you "Like" me back, we will both get an e-mail that indicates our mutual liking!)

(FYI III: Please... no Trump endorsers)

.....ISO a gentleman to whom I am physically attracted, who lives near me, and who has the intellect, backbone, and tenderness to build character as a man. We challenge one another to realize our finer selves.

.....a mindful and communication-savvy gentleman whose willingness to engage during difficult moments reflects a genuine interest in resolution. I refuse to bicker in times of conflict but prefer to navigate difficulty as allies in search of peace. We treat gently our vulnerabilities in order to preserve our feeling safe with one another.

.....a gentleman who shares the mundane functions of life, just being glad that we are together, and creates the romantic and memorable aspects of life, just being glad that we are together. We support one another's passion for being part of something important, viewing the journey as a process of evolution. We appreciate simple joys, whether working on projects together or independently, enjoying the comfort of each others' company.

.....we sit and talk, we express affection, we cook, we exercise and walk on trails, we travel, we problem-solve, we cry and offer comfort, we go out to dine and to see movies or performances, we learn, we dance, we laugh... as friends and partners. We discover a romantic relationship with ever-evolving promise, we can decide how we wish to continue our lives together.

.....good habits regarding diet and exercise shape our common ground.
What I’m doing with my life
Developing my business venture of resiliency education workshops and coaching. Handcrafting earrings and necklaces to de-stress. Participating in Toastmasters!
I’m really good at
Listening to and encouraging others... dolling up... leading... joining in... cooking... public speaking... traveling (someday)... taking care of animals (no matter their special needs)... not wasting time in dead-ends... not giving up!... appreciating the paradox...
The first things people usually notice about me
The manner of my dress is quite fashionable, femme, sexy, elegant, fun, creative. I prefer the wonder of self-expression through decoration. People also notice the nine rings on my fingers.

I do not drag boyfriends to chick-flicks... I enjoy good stories and character development and cringe at gratuitous violence... sci-fi or action-adventure can be fun... also definitely must see a movie first and then dinner to talk about it.

My taste in music varies widely. The childhood staple was Billy Joel and most of his music appeals to my aesthetic and sense of nostalgia. no artist/group dominates now. I take my music on a song-by-song basis.

Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, American...! I tend to be healthily discriminating about what I consume yet there are so many tastes to savor!
The six things I could never do without
...my mp3 player!

...my precious cat, Sophie

...the genuine mutual rapport, initiative, and support of loving friends

...my core belief in my own goodness and that of others.

...the skepticism that spurs my critical thinking.

...the sure knowledge that there are men who believe that women are smart, funny, warm, pretty, tender, strong, creative human beings who make them better men!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...whether geese have people-bumps when they are chilly
On a typical Friday night I am
...writing my memoir.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am turned on by mastery. When a man can do something well or speak eloquently about an area of expertise, something inside of me literally turns on! It is no measure of character, but it floats my boat! Oh, and I like my underwear to match! ;)
You should message me if
...You have the WOW factor... If you recognize that, beyond the initial vetting process, these profiles are a hill of beans once we discover attraction even if we are uncertain as to what substance may follow... If you have a good reason and wish to tell me about it!
