My work life has also offered a breadth of experiences. I spent the first 20 years of my career in the glamorous ad biz (Account Management on car accounts), achieving a decent level of success. As my spiritual life grew and I dealt with my late husband's illness and subsequent death in 2001, that road felt far too soul-sucking - for lack of a better term - so I left it for more fulfilling work. The specifics of that "Other" answer in the job category is that today I am a healer, spiritual counselor, and chaplain.
Travel has become a passion of mine in the last decade or so. One of the items on my "bucket list" is to set foot on all 7 continents; just returned from Africa which was #6. No surprise, Antarctica is the one I have left but one that I really am looking forward to. Many other destinations await as well. I would love to find a fellow adventurer to explore with - or even just put my toes in the sand with.
Other things you might want to know: 1) Interests of mine are theatre, writing, hiking, biking, laughing, hanging out with people I care about, reading poetry, among other things. 2) People are often astonished when they find out how old I am - either that or they are excellent actors. 3) I am open-minded, down-to-earth, liberal, and very grounded in - and involved with - the realities of living in this world in these times. 4) I'm told the most lovable thing about me is my quick smile / laugh. (I'll let you figure out the least lovable thing for yourself.)
What am I looking for in a relationship? Someone to share life with. A best friend. A lover. I am looking for a man who is considerate, intelligent, attractive, has a sense of humor, and takes the lead. He should be positive, open-minded and open-hearted. He should be happy with himself and his life, but also willing to grow. He needs to be willing to bring himself fully and honestly to a relationship. Ideally he loves both the city and the country. Please no party boys!
