I've climbed Mt. Whitney, drummed at Burning Man, and backpacked solo through Central America. I enjoy museum trips, hands-on activities, farmer's markets, film festivals, and hot springs. Art, culture, and adventure are all experiences I look forward to. My solo trip to Cuba last month was an epic adventure. I'd prefer to have a companion on my next trip abroad. Where shall we go together?
I laugh easily and often; am playful and affectionate; and I treat people with kindness. Other descriptors include -- intelligent, easy-going, sensual, honest, and self-aware. I pay my bills on time, give everyone the benefit of doubt, and am a devoted mother to my son.
What I am seeking is a relationship of equals -- my primary partner -- a best friend and lover. A “grown-up” who communicates openly, welcomes intimacy, and follows through on his promises. 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. 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 sharing 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.
