I've climbed Mt. Whitney in one day, then hula-hooped on the summit. Drummed many times inside the Great Circle, while fire dancers performed at Burning Man. Backpacked solo through parts of Central and South America, and was stranded more than once. Spent a relaxing weekend camping and soaking at Harbin Hot Springs. Art, culture, and adventure are all experiences I participate in and look forward to. My next international destination is Cuba. Do you have any recent experiences/tips/advice to share?
I laugh easily and often; I'm playful and affectionate; and I treat people with kindness. I make an effort to remain friends with many of my exes. Additional descriptors include -- intelligent, easy-going, sensual, honest, ethical, and self-aware. I have most of my sh*t together, and expect you to be the same. I am a devoted mother to my son, and share 50/50 custody with his father.
What I am seeking is a long-term relationship of equals, and my "collaborator" on this journey. A man who will be my best friend and my lover. Someone who makes me a priority in his life, as I will do the same for him. A “grown-up” who communicates openly, desires intimacy on all levels, enjoys PDAs, follows through on his promises, and has a career that affords him some financial stability. He practices doing the right thing, even if it may not be the easy thing. His honesty and integrity is beyond reproach. The type of relationship I want can be called "monogamish" (bonus points if you know the reference!), because I am happiest when significantly connected to someone. My goal is to find a primary partner to come home to every day. As long as the foundation of our relationship is strong, we can customize everything else (including any future "open-ness") into what works for both of us.
I believe that chemistry can only be assessed face-to-face. A first date ought to be something low-key and casual, such as getting a cup of coffee/tea together, or going for a walk. An environment that allows us to talk and get a sense of each other would be great.
