I admit I'd rather read the dictionary than write this ad. Or hike Mt. Tam with friends. Bike in the park. Snuggle with a great book. But someday I’d like to meet and snuggle up to YOU…and then some.
YOU are kind, smart, thoughtful, quick to laugh, playful and thriving in your life. You like being active and going slow. Urban pleasures and time in nature both light you up. You dig weekend getaways and far flung trips. You’re not allergic to kale and all things healthy. You’re not above a salted caramel cupcake, either.
By now, you know how to keep your side of the street thriving and happy for the block party with our friends. (And you get that that isn’t just about the string of lights, grub and bottles of drink.) You seek not a clone but a compliment, with whom to grow and evolve.
ME: SF semi-native (since H.S.) contented and in a great place in life. I’m entrepreneurial, work several days/mo as a leadership-communication coach and trainer to Fortune 100 leaders. I’m also a published kids' book author and ‘a creative’ at heart. Revising my middle grade fantasy thriller novel Kicks. My. Butt. And my rainmaker agent is excited for a book sale next spring. :) A full constellation of friends and family make it all worthwhile.
I like hitting a taqueria or dressing up for a gourmet resto. I relish affection (my puertorriqueña side ;-) ), am sensitive to others’ needs, value mindfulness and have high EQ. I’m an imperfect, adorable work in progress.
I loved Chiang Mai’s luxe d2 Hotel, Sydney’s Four Seasons...and those cute rustic beachside bungalows on Ko Tao. I love flying first class, taking a slow boat up the Mekong into Laos, a Guatemalan chicken bus or biking to the farmer’s market. I’ve visited London, Madrid, Paris and Sydney for work--and dig being a tourist right here. I’m happiest on my writing days, playing author and working from home on my dream.
I heart my mix of gym, yoga, hiking and biking. I crave more time for dance class (aka, shot of joy), drawing and volunteering. I dream of Art Basel, seeing the Northern Lights, Galapagos, Alaska, Morocco and many more points on the globe. I’m flexible enough to have my own dreams and support you in yours. I’m ready for adventure and game to have fun, as long as you’re willing to try new things and see the world.
Not into drawn-out email exchanges, I prefer to meet for a friendly beverage instead. It’s always fun to meet new folks, no matter the outcome, and see what sparks.
I like exploring new-to-me music. Fun to compare notes on concerts we've seen. As for food, I enjoy most cuisines under the sun. Avocados deserve a national day of observance. I like a taqueria burrito as much as the next person, and have gourmet tendencies. I balance healthy eating and fitness with extravagent meals and treats here and there.
Or, home recharging from the above, curled up with a movie and company or a book, cooking yummy food and/or getting ready for a bike ride, hike, farmers market trip, other social outing or physical activity outside.
I really am 5'8'', and in heels up to 5'10-5'11''. Also, I'm told I look much younger, and I value full disclosure. I am 47.
You'd also rather avoid long, email marathons v. are game to meet for a friendly beverage...It's always fun to meet new people, no matter the outcome. :-)
