I am a writer, in addition to other things I do, so it's pretty essential that you be the thoughtful, deep & reflective type, on some level. I am definitely someone that notices the little subtle, non-verbal details of things, moments, sounds, etc.
Overall I'm on the quiet side, but once I get comfortable with people I can turn loud, zany - even obnoxious!
I am spiritually inclined, & like to check out groups & events related to that inclination - ecstatic dance, for example, yoga, qigong.
In general I like things like dance music and hiking around, being active outdoors.
Am very much into living the healthiest life possible. Obsessed with the outdoors & living 'close to nature'. I love plants, want to learn more about them.
Studied abroad & have traveled internationally in the past. I speak a healthy smattering of the Latin languages, & I am fascinated with the Balkans.
The person I'm looking for must be willing to consider living outside of NYC, & by that I especially mean somewhere a bit warmer. I'm originally from the South, & I love the sun, so I'd say - a place like Austin, North Carolina, or abroad somewhere... also Costa Rica, Hawaii or Bali - would be great :)
I've always dreamed of a great romance, & - it's been a long journey, but nowadays am feeling optimistic that it's possible, even probable, to find it...!
movies: documentary films mostly - though i used to watch a lot of foreign ones
shows: absolutely fabulous
music: brazilian, eastern european, techno, deva premal for yoga - really into above and beyond, 'emotionally intelligent trance' all of a sudden! (as of november 2013)
food: healthy, tonic herbal infusions, green smoothies, interesting fermented goodness - don't worry, I like 'real food' too
some form of movement meditation (yoga, tai chi, samba, dancing)
a means of self-expression
Responsible in every area of life. Plans, shows up on time, has good boundaries - that old fashioned stuff is important. Character, I guess is the word. Believes in working on themselves, communicating at a high level.
Wants a relationship with the right person, & to really make it a priority.
Finally, I do well with 'goofy' - ie: a sense of joy, imagination. I've noticed that just talking & talking doesn't cut it for me. At some point in interactions I need to take a break from the talking & just... relax, let go... look around, enjoy the silence... or laugh, play...
