My self-summary
"Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor."~ Rumi

"it is in the shelter of each other that the people live." ~ Pádraig Ó Tuama

I was always very lucky; still am. I was raised by my two great parents to be a self-sufficient and self-motivated woman. Stable, thoughtful and dependable. Fairly intelligent, sometimes saucy, very fun, happy, curious. Intuitive, liberal, artsy. Atypical. And oh....this might be a good place to add.... I'm really good at kissing... with the right lab partner.

While I appreciate having a partner and companion, I've grown a lot and can stand, independently, on my own. Still, I really enjoy the smile on my fella's face when surprise him with a nice evening. While I can take care of myself, I also appreciate a guy who takes the initiative to make plans and suprise me!

But first things first and see how it goes. Some things I enjoy...

a quiet beach (anytime/any weather) aromatic kitchen, a couple glasses of wine and hips swaying to music... a hilltop blanket, watching the stars... a sultry summer evening, meandering around a country road with the top down.... backpacking in the countryside, exploring new vistas and customs... a glistening, candle-lit tabletop, sharing a meal together, or with friends.... exchanged look across crowded room, with smiles that know their own language.

And you.... somewhat flawed (no one is perfect), but your flaws are what makes you interesting.... incredibly curious and turned on by intelligence and captivated by great conversation.... mainstream on the outside, with an alternative point of view.... creative and focused without arrogance or condescension....playful, easygoing and happy with respect for wisdom.

I'm looking for the Clyde to my Bonnie, the Nick to my Nora.... So, let's get on with it! Send me an email, or a smoke signal and maybe we can ditch this place!

7. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

A few words so we're not wasting anyone's time... please have a picture and profile (fair is fair...I have both and would like it to be reciprocal). NO married men! And if you're not being honest about your age, height or weight, well, you're not being honest. Finally, while I have conservative friends and acquaintances, I want to find a companion that has the same values as I and the Carville/Matalin thing doesn't work....

I realize the above can be sensitive matters and very slight fudging for 'search reasons' are understandable, but I would prefer that it be brought up in the initial emails to avoid hurt feelings or embarrassment on either of our parts. Thanks, luck and happiness to all!
What I’m doing with my life
Working in Technology Sales in Manhattan. Creative pursuits. Volunteering. Friends, family. Swimming. I get great pleasure in making a difference.
I’m really good at
What am I really good at? I dunno, but I enjoy learning new things ... science, technology, sociology, psychology, spirituality and global, national and local politics, art, culture, design.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm...That I drink tap water? Maybe it's all that magnetic charisma I exude. ; )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
l'm musically promiscuous--the Shins, Radiohead, Mary J, Dr. Dog, Yo La Tengo, Tune Yards, KT Tunstall, Beau Soliel, Trombone Shorty, and old school... Cinnamon Girl, Layla<3, Blind Faith, Cream, Pink Floyd, Joni, Janis, Bonnie, Leon Russell, Beck, Dr. John, Bon Iver, LedZep, Genesis, Saturday mornings with Steely Dan, the JayB's, SRV, Clapton, BBK... I love Blues and R&B. And then, there's this... ...and this....

Memento, The Rope, American Beauty, Rear Window, To Kill a Mockingbird, A Christmas Story

ALL kinds of art and design. Architecture is a constant joy and inspiration. I love to experiment with cooking and entertaining. I love reading .
Six things I could never do without
I don't really need six "things" at all, but I do cherish friends and family...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is it too cold/wet/hot/humid/windy to open a window?

that while I haven't yet met my fella, I know he's out there looking for me too... I'm living a pretty good life, but I am okay with the search to find him (you?).
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. It always varies.
You should message me if
Chemistry and attraction are a must (therefore, pictures are a must). If your a nice, SINGLE progressive/liberal/middle-of-the-road fella' who wants a similarly-humored partner, send me an email, or a smoke signal... whatever works...

...and okay, you can also be cute.
The two of us
