I deeply hope someone will write me who's enthused to meet a man sharing her left or anarchist--rather than simply "liberal"--values.I seek a world citizen, with a vision of democracy (we aren't living in one!), a deep critique of capitalism, a yearning for social transformation, a sense of connection with all the world's peoples, and a hopefulness about our future.
Of course, I seek other qualities in her beyond these ideals. Are you adventurous, fun-loving, literate, compassionate and sensual?
Many women are appealing in a variety of ways. But I've sharpened the focus here to what's most desirable to me. Let's surprise each other. Let's see what happens.
In general: Watching raindrops on green leaves, teaching in fine preschools, writing, frolicking in warm waters, visiting museums, galleries and festivals; attending theater & live-music performances; researching science-y things and early education issues; being an activist in various antiracist/ environmental/human rights/economic justice/anti-war movements, playing basketball, enjoying Asian foods, raising my grown daughter, learning languages, dreaming of bootstrap travel through lands near and far, reading, dancing, making inspired and/or literary puns.
I get around by bicycle and public transportation, choosing not to own a car. Do you live fairly near? BUT I could relocate, for the right person!
In fiction, Kingsolver, Alice Walker, LeGuin, Toni Morrison, Nin, Crowley, Stegner, Piccoult, Hartup, Fleming, Proulx, Naipul, Atwood, Rushdie, Munro, Marian Zimmer Bradley, Octavia Butler, Kim Stanley Robinson...
Film? Fairly recently, Spotlight, Birdman, Wild, Life of Pi and Grand Hotel Budapest. I also liked Gravity, which was powerful despite some treacly moments, sci-fi with a female protag. Music? Poetry? Let's enthuse over our favorites together.
Drinking? maybe white wine occasionally, with a restaurant meal.
Light and shadows
Bodies of water and the sound of it flowing
Music and a stirring beat
My social conscience and activism
Touch, texture; silky skin and other tactile delights
(Optional): Bonus points if you're one of the 3% of US residents who identify as atheist, or the 4% who identify as agnostic.
Beyond that, if you're creative, sensual and playful with a sense of style and allure (maybe even wear dresses with flair), and are GGG, it'd be wonderful.
