My self-summary
I am an athletic, accomplished and poetic woman-of-a-certain-age. What is important to me is friendship, family, travel where tourists don't go, diversity and culture, human connection. At this 'no BS time of life' I dare myself to be transparent. I seek the same in others.

I am in an open relationship with Hi_Im_Mack. He welcomes my meeting a man, who understands that his and my relationship is non-negotiable. It is my first foray into "ethical" polyamory---that means EVERYONE knows, no secrets, no "don't ask don't tell"----so I begin slowly, carefully. I am a thoughtful deeply-caring and happy woman. It will be an accomplished, thoughtful, direct, alive and evolved man, who will make me look twice.

*A literary way with a sentence is seductive to me.

-love
-finances
-this next stage of life
-how to communicate effectively using active listening, perhaps nonviolent communication.
-why do so many men announce, as if it is a commonly-held good quality, that they like "all music except Rap"?
-why are grammatically-challenged, "God-fearing" military men attracted to me?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You must be evolved, brave, honest, strong, confident to enjoy the contradictions and beauty in me.
You should message me if
You are ready for an unusual relationship, based in deep honesty, your heart is open, you know how to love and, moreso, how to be a friend, your life and experiences have taught you much yet not left you too broken, or broke, you believe in something, have a passion in life, have some financial stability, you delight in the dance of 'growing up,' you still have a rich sense of adventure, you are willing to be honest, and you live nearby, close enough so we can realistically get to know each other realtime....AND... You are prepared to actually talk, meet, not stay behind a computer screen via email and text too long. i am 'old-school' that way.

ADDENDUM---IF INTERESTED, PLEASE READ:

1--Please write a thoughtful paragraph of introduction like a real gentleman. No "hi pretty"--- i will erase this immediately.

2--Please note that "God-fearing," or "Republican/Conservative" or "Military man" and even Long Distance, will NOT be a match.

3--I ask that you answer at least some of the OK Cupid questionnaire. It offers something about who you are, perhaps sparking my curiosity. I call it "reciprocity…."
