Here for fun dates, great stories, connection and laughter. Ultimately, someday, looking for someone to do life with :)
I have five qualities I look for if you wanna talk
1) Appreciate an artistic woman. I live to make art...love galleries and whatnot.
2) Be spiritual... or open to the fact that I am a tarot reading witch essentially...who does ayahuasca, often ;) I strive to be healthy and am committed to personal growth
3) I'm looking for someone who doesn't want to raise kids. Ever. I know it's rare...most men want them eventually.
But please be mature enough to know where you stand on that topic :)
4) Be snuggly and affectionate.
5) Be silly. Be willing to look stupid. Laugh, often. Sarcasm, puns, wit, charades, I love it all. I'm realizing as I get older just how important this is. This world is crazy but having someone to laugh with everyday makes it all worthwhile :)
And please, no hook ups.
Ok! Done with the serious stuff
I'm a working artist and entrepreneur.
Successful...yet, also very feminine. I love spending time in nature, love road trips (vintage campervan owner!)
Pretty monogamous and romantic, not interested in dating a ton of people (I'm rather picky honestly) Dominant in my day to day life and tend to do best with men who appreciate that...overly alpha men are not a good fit. Men who love to give are
Conversations with depth turn me on.
I'm happiest at intimate events, dinner parties, out in nature or cozy with you at home. I have a mix of artist and intellectual friends. All nice people.
Looks wise, to quote Sir Mix A lot: LA face with an Oakland booty. Thick thighs, 42 inch hips, smaller waist, built for a man who loves curves.
I love fellow entrepreneurs, artists, creators, passionate people... people who are curious about the world. I don't work 9-5 which is fun and allows me to travel. It would be great to find someone with similar freedom.
I'm equally comfortable at an art opening
( I work at an amazing art gallery) as I am playing Playstation in my pajamas or camping in the woods. (I love video games for their artistic merits, honestly)
As I mentioned, I'm spiritual and into Tarot, shamanism, meditation. Ayahuasca is an amazing experience, and has become an important part of my life over the last 3 years. That said, I'm also down to earth and can hang with just about anyone, logical, business-types and atheists included. I welcome diversity of opinions.
I love to travel!
Not just to exotic destinations, but all places in between. Small towns, run down places. The idea of a year long road trip across the US in a RV sounds like heaven to me. Wanna travel together? I have a pretty sweet vintage campervan and a huge love affair with the desert, oceans and forests surrounding us
I live on the edge of Emeryville/Oakland ....and am in San Francisco often. I don't mind the thought of dating someone outside the Bay, especially if it means spending more time on a farm :) I can imagine myself moving somewhere more rural someday...especially if I can garden.
I'd love to find someone who lights me up.
A best friend who I can't keep my hands off ;) true partnership, friendship on fire. Im old fashioned as I haven't given up on love. I am a nurturer through and through. A relationship where we make it even more possible for each other to shine and contribute good in the world...yes please
That said, I do take things slow, and believe in being friends before anything else. Ultimately, I'd love a partner to go deep with ♡♡♡ You know, co-habitation: The final frontier. Someone to make a cozy home with, a big shop space for creating and a round table to gather friends around for Sunday brunch. I want a creative life full of projects and travel with my love
P.S My pics are all recent, I'm actually 38 though I don't feel it. My best friend is 23, I'm told I pass for 28 or so...but yes...time flies! Good genes here. If that bothers you, ah well. I believe age is pretty irrelevant
I run a few businesses and enjoy a lot of freedom.
Most dear to my heart is..helping run an art gallery here in Oakland. We show video, installation and visionary work.
I paint, and sculpt
And also, Ayahuasca ceremonies as needed
The Power of Attraction. Finite and Infinite Games
TV: Reno 911, adult cartoons, The Office, Little Britain
music: I love outdoor music festivals and will gladly get on a plane to go to a good one. Priorities. Priorities.
To name a few: MUTEK (montreal) DEMF (detroit electronic music festival) treasure island music fest, and yes, burning man (though i am not a "burner" by any means)
more music: SBTRKT, fleet foxes, the beatles, beruit, matmos, iron and wine. mazzy star. the shins. jeff buckley, bat for lashes. fever ray , the knife, owen pallett. The smiths, the cure,division, noise, drone, glitch, dubstep, funk, soul, 80's cheese, old school 90's hip hop, like black moon, smif n wesson, aaliyah
food: anything but wheat. im pretty turned on to the paleo diet these days.
science and art, and where the two intersect
wealth creation/new business ideas
vintage Porsches & vintage campervans
poverty and class issues. street art. travel to: Iceland, Italy, Costa Rica, Austrailia, Spain, Scandinavia. Design. gardening. music. psychedelics. DMT. ayahuasca. shamanism. tantra. how to live with my heart open. how to make a long term, committed relationship work...and be inspiring and supportive at the same time.
The rest of this stuff is gravy:
~you're silly, you're able to get ridiculous
~you dream of an urban homestead and love animals: chickens, bees, gardens
~you have done some work on yourself, you are emotionally available
~you value stability. this includes financial stability
~you love love
~you love nature: hiking, diving, snorkeling, camping, hot springs...
~you like to make stuff
~you have a stellar music or film collection you want to introduce me to
this next part offends some, and I'm not trying to send the wrong message, but...physical connection is important if something is going to last
Ive never really cared about height. But I do care about length ;)
Nothing less then a solid 7 inches please. Just to give you an idea, a dollar bill is just over 6 inches long. (men seem to have an inability to measure correctly lol) I like BIG.
Women are at a disadvantage. Men can pursue their physical preferences (big ass, thin, blond...whatever it may be)
But women have no way of telling!
I'm trying to avoid dating for a month only to find out I'm a size queen and you are packing 4 inches.
Does this mean I'm looking for casual sex?
I assure you...it doesn't. Casual sex doesn't interest me. I really mean that. I am holding out for the person who fulfills me emotionally, spiritually, physically.
Am I really the first girl to mention this in her profile? well...I hope I at least made you laugh
p.s online dating is completely fraught with weirdo's and scammers, men who don't read profiles, countless time wasters and other bad news bears. If she seems a little uptight, perhaps that is why. You men seriously have no idea. This place is full of landmines, be extra kind! Xo
