My self-summary
I'm active and attractive, but want my privacy. That said, no photo to post. I'm a fit, intelligent skeptic looking for someone to interact with while enjoying some sunny outdoor time or interesting discussions over dinner. Missing romance in my life (in a classical sense). Would like someone to have honest philosophical and playful discussions with. Like walking while talking. Enjoy all arts and artistic DIY endeavors. Childless, semi-retired and financially secure, upbeat - with time to spend with a desirable companion.
What I’m doing with my life
Arts, exercise, cooking, organizing, puttering, playing, learning, reading, writing, participating, volunteering - essentially, just living.
I’m really good at
Relating, listening, caring, creativity, arts, gardening, thinking philosophically, communicating.
The first things people usually notice about me
Petite, fit, silver haired, impish nature - introspective, but lively.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Barbara Kingsolver. Tom Robbins. Malcolm Gladwell. Biographies about artists or interesting offbeat characters. TED talks. New Yorker mags. Newspapers.
Music: Greg Brown, Patty Larkin - hip, intelligent folk. World beat, classical, motown, blues - most classifications 'cept very country and very hard rock. Huge itunes library.
Films: A favorite actress: Laura Linney - Kinsey, The Squid and the Whale, The Savages. Woody Allen. Obscure documentaries.
More films: The Bands Visit, The Visitor. Unbearable lightness of Being, Angels and Insects, I Hear the Mermaids singing, Sex, Lies and Videotapes, Henry and June, all things Fellini, Snowcake, Little Miss Sunshine, The Castle, The Eel, Romeo and Juliet, 2001 Space Odyssey, Harold and Maude, Grey's Garden, The Garden ... too many things I can't remember the names of ...
Food: Anything from my garden. Spicy Thai food, veggies, some seafood occasionally - lucky for me, mostly health conscious driven by my taste buds. Like nice red wines and an occasional gin martini.
Six things I could never do without
Swimming. Sunshine. Creative arts. Love. Braininess, Being around others who are introspective by nature - not necessarily in this order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Similar to above - with spice, romance and inspiration.
On a typical Friday night I am
wishing I had something fun to do with someone who initiated something surprisingly refreshing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm active, fit and I seem rough and tumble, but I wouldn't want to go out without some make-up.
Been answering a lot of OKC questions lately — curious about the site's algorithms.
Ok, less "conventionally moral" and "less competitive," yes. But less "kind" and less "romantic?" ...Thinking they must be talking about someone else.
You should message me if
any of this is intriguing and you'd at least like the possibility of meeting a potential friend.
The two of us
