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--

and the discovery of--in one of my best friends--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!)

I seek an inimitable man--tender, earnest, and courageous-- awakened in mind, body, and soul whose virtues outweigh his shortcomings; willing to share the mundane functions of life, and making ways to celebrate the simple joys; and, whether working on projects together or independently, enjoying the comfort of each others' company. You challenge me to be my finer self and welcome to be so challenged.

Communication provides keys at time of difficulty. I refuse to bicker in times of conflict but prefer to navigate difficulty with tenderness, treating gently your vulnerabilities in order to preserve our feeling at ease with one another. Ultimately, we are and see each other as allies.

Good habits regarding diet and exercise help define my lifestyle and hopefully shape our common ground.

I have a passion for being part of something important and find the same attractive in a man. My journey is a process of evolution. You are on a similar mindful journey.

I adore animals as much as friends and loved ones, and experience a mindful sorrow in eating them... no, not friends and loved ones... animals!

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Developing my business venture of resiliency education workshops and coaching-, writing a blog, tweeting, and marketing.

Handcrafting earrings and necklaces resets my brain circuitry. Participating in Toastmasters and Co-Counseling add enrichment.
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 mp3 player! precious cat, Sophie

...the genuine mutual rapport, initiative, and support of loving friends 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
...going out with you?!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am turned on by mastery. When a man can do something well or talk about his 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 that are ultimately discarded when we meet and get a sense, an attraction, a basis for something even if we are uncertain as to what... If you are willing to take a "look see," just taking a walk or "having coffee"... If you have a good reason and wish to tell me about it!
