I am looking to spend amazing time with a kind and out-going soul. I am a very sociable person and I adore getting out and about and trying new things. I am full of wonderful ideas of things to do and am looking forward to hiking, camping, skiing, skating, going to concerts and out dancing, and discovering incredible eateries. I know myself and understand that I am seeking a partner to join me in activities and with whom I can explore new challenges. I am also very affectionate and seek that in a partner.
I am attractive, intelligent, witty, daring and cheeky. My friends would describe me as a social butterfly who can hold her own in a room full of strangers, a thrill-seeker who is kind and compassionate. I am educated and find the goings on of the world politics to be the best soap opera there is (Although lately the news is very hard on my soul to follow. I wish that politicians would think beyond the four year election cycle). After having lived in France for a year some time ago, I find myself missing the thrill of travelling and am craving an escape into the outdoors and into the woods and lakes. I camp (yes, in winter as well), canoe, hike, and love yoga... you name it and I will give it a go.
Being mindful of other people's needs, deep compassion, true connection, living with what you need, being aware of how what you do and how you live drastically affects those around you and the world that you live in, are the qualities that I seek in my partner. Mindlessness, selfishness and materialism are qualities within people that I find the most difficult to understand and that sadden me. There is value in being able to live simply and mindfully.
Oddly enough, I find the sexiest of men are those who are as comfortable sleeping out in a tent after canoeing all day (day three into a canoe trip, after having swam in the lake) as they are tucking into a delicious meal at the local gastro pub and then going out dancing. I am looking for a fun person with whom I can go on adventures and go out socially. I am very aware that my relationship with my partner will compliment my life, not complete it. Independence and connection create a life of harmony and fulfillment. Now, this is not to say that an evening of nummy nibbles, a good bottle of wine, and a movie are not on the list... but let's save that for when we are exhausted from our week and we agree that there is nothing more appealing than snuggling down in our comfy nest and enjoying a fabulous book. I live downtown and thoroughly enjoy being social with my friends and partner.
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. (quote)
Enjoy yourself and make life interesting.
* I have done a lot of soul searching, and I realize that my life's choice to not have children also means that I do not wish to date someone with children. I have chosen a life of adventure and quality time with my partner. Good luck with your search :).
