My self-summary
I'll get to the serious stuff in a second but - what do I want? I want to be giggling in bed with you. When laughing we've lost all sense of pretense that keeps people at a distance and are totally in the moment...The awkwardness is over, the apprehension's gone and fun has set in. Ultimately that's what I'm after but there's more...

I am an attractive, serious minded but playful woman with a wry sense of humor, looking to foist a tremendous amount of affection upon the right partner. While I value my independence, I have an increasing need to have someone special laugh at my jokes, share inane conversation, hold me and make smiling a habit. Most important to me is to feel comfortable talking with each other and feel like we’ve each been heard. You will recognize yourself when I say I want an equal partner, someone who will stand up to me and for me, someone who wants, and will get, a soft place to fall. When necessary, and it always is, we are each others' respite, reprieve and comic relief. I am happiest when trying something new (most recently - travel to Lebanon) because it reminds me that the world is an infinitely interesting place. But I'm also prone to hunker down with a good book, cook, watch movies, and stay in bed with you. Our attraction for each other is visceral and sensual and it neither starts nor ends in the bedroom. Because fitness and attraction are important and because body image is subjective, slender means I vacillate between a size 4 and 6. The pictures are recent, I'm really 55, and this is what it looks like on me.

In a city full of smart men - you're warm, sensual, sexual and know the difference between them. I appreciate people who are thoughtful and articulate about their life and the world around them and there are still things that incite and inspire you. My world is a politically liberal one so open mindedness is important to me. Since I work out, and want to lead an active lifestyle, I prefer men who actually play sports or work out rather than just watch. Culture in your life is not limited to the yogurt sitting in your fridge and you know that kindness is the strongest aphrodisiac.

Lastly, I am very allergic to smoke and dogs.
I’m really good at
Figuring people / situations out without a lot of actual information.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love film and though I haven't seen all the contenders yet, my pick for best film this year will probably be "Moonlight" - heart wrenching and beautiful. A few years back the doc "Stories We Tell" by film maker Sarah Polley was the best personal doc I've seen in a while about families, truth and lies, how we perceive and construct the stories we tell about our life to ourselves and others... it was fascinating and left me pensive for hours.
Six things I could never do without
Physical activity, travel, intimacy, trying new food...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to get out of my own way.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Amongst the many things I don't want to do alone anymore, traveling is what we can start off with.
You should message me if
Most of this resonates with you- mind and body....
The two of us
