I'm interested in meeting new friends, dating, and eventually a LRT. I travel for work and my location updates based on where I am staying. I'm looking for both friends and maybe a lover. I live in Southern Oregon where i grew up - returning after 20 years of living in Portland and the East coast. I miss having strong queer culture and would welcome more queer identified progressive friends of all ages and interests. I travel to Portland every 5-6 weeks and Roseburg monthly for work. I travel to Phoenix, AZ and Denver, CO. My besties recently moved to Eugene so I expect I'll be visiting there too! Not interested in long distance relationship from other cities.
I'm a femme, PhD educated, employed, and physically and mentally healthy. I am fit. For a lover, I do require someone with similar offerings in the financial, physical and mental health stability areas. I also can't be partnered with a smoker as I respond negatively to cigarette smoke (migraine trigger).
I do like and enjoy the company of men and I am not into hanging out with women who are either man haters or are "bi for a guy" types or curious women (non-virgins only, please)....I am not interested in polyamory.
I am liberal, conservation/environmental leaning, non-smoking (again), local food supporting, dark chocolate, coffee drinking, non-addictive type but drink occasionally, omnivore, enjoy a good belly laugh, etc.
I go to the movies almost every week. I like all types of movies. I enjoy live music. I've taken a few West Coast Swing dance lessons but need a lot more work!
I abondon pursuit of my doctoral dissertation after attaining ABD status and completing all the research - foolish but I lost interest. I continue to take college courses - currently physical science.
I've been riding motorcycle (long rides of several hundred to a couple thousand miles over a long weekend or week) and creating other mayhem.
I'm working for my mortgage and paying off my student loans but I do enjoy my job, the work, and the people (fortunately) - yet still I work to live and have good work/life balance.
I would like to garden more and try to keep up with the yard - but I don't really enjoy the grass part (one day I will convert it to all edible to the dismay of my neighbors). I have a classic car under restoration that is fun to cruise in shows. I enjoy all the seasons and company of friends pool or fireside! I also don't mind time by myself. I'm also training a young dog (or she is training me).
I enjoy the outdoors but prefer a hotel as I mature!
