I really believe it is possible to grow, evolve and continue to learn as we age, though many people (if not most) just walk on a constantly narrowing Path, becoming less open and more rigid in their beliefs, bodies and emotional reactions. All too often, those of us in middle age no longer have a body they enjoy, because of neglect, overindulgence or abuse.
I have paid attention to the lessons life has taught me, without losing my sense of joy in what is possible. I am strong, healthy, independent and very Conscious, and would value meeting a man with these same qualities who could value them in me without feeling threatened or needing “to compete”.
I would really enjoy meeting a man who still enjoys the pleasures of all his senses. Who has come to realize that each day we have, at this stage in our lives, is a gift to be enjoyed. A man who still understands the concept of spontaneous play, and who is still healthy enough in mind, body and spirit to be able to play with abandon.
Obviously this means someone who still ENJOYS being very active, whether it is in dancing, yoga, hiking out in nature, bicycling exchanging bodywork sessions. Since I am such a kinesthetically-oriented person, I really respond better to someone who has cared well for his body and is not overweight. I dance, freestyle 3-4 times a week, my own very active synthesis of contact improv, Tai Chi, yoga and ballet.
Though I don’t necessarily need to find another dancer (though that would be nice) I DO need a man who still can move his body well.
I have two businesses of my own….I do Acupressure, and have a holistic health practice; I also work as a professional art licensor, selling my paintings internationally for use in fabric, puzzles, prints and other products. I work a lot, but still enjoy what I do. My free time is very valuable to me so I choose to truly enjoy what I do, which doesn’t include sitting around watching TV. It might be difficult for me to date someone who is retired, and has too much time on his hands.
It would be an extra bonus for me to meet someone in the alternative health care field, or who at least has knowledge or interest in this area.
Please do not contact me if you are under 50, have any established religious affiliations (except perhaps Buddhist), are overweight, in any way conservative.
I AM open to relocating to a smaller city, particularly if it is coastal.
I cannot seem to change my age on this site. I am really 65, though my pictures were taken last summer.
A first date is just about seeing if there is chemistry, and communion, and communication. If there is none, it would be a short date. if there is some, who knows what the time together would extend into?
