I am adventurous, inquisitive, and classy...
a bright, affectionate, playful spirit, ready to laugh...
who desires the company of a GOOD man who lives near me...
to whom I am physically attracted...
who is one of my best friends with an exquisite soul...
and who 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 what "fit" means, you tell me: My measurements are 38-34-43. Twice-weekly visits to the gym keep me feeling happy about my shape. Maybe you will be too?!)
(FYI II: If you wonder why I answered "other" for Religion in the Details section, I subscribe to the Unitarian-Universalist principles.)
(FYI III: I use the "Like" button because, if you "Like" me back, we will both get an e-mail that indicates our mutual liking!)
(FYI IV: 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.

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 bus and rail
...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!
