I am an inherently happy person. Resilient, creative, empathetic, nurturing, vivacious. Realized. Fairly unflappable. Decisive.
I like to think of myself as a type A personality with a hippie soul. Driven & entrepreneurial but am open to all kinds of people & situations.
I have been quasi-dating the last couple years. Affirming, re-affirming, re-re-affirming what I DO want and gettin' real damn clear about what doesn't work. The 0-60 is quicker than quick these days.
Not a shocker but - creative people need to have another creative. I gave the opposites thing a try and realized that it didn't hold the same appeal in an expansive way... I love having a mix of friends with varied careers & interests but having joined the circus long ago know that there is an implicit understanding amongst us.
Ex: Went back to school, UCLA for landscape design (while designing a tv show) only to leave class each night with the ocean mist permeating the campus and run into the craft service guy who always makes me soup. I know. Not exciting. The realization being that I know where I belong.
All that said. What I'm trying to convey, however clunky, is that I know who I am. Battle scars included.
Would love to meet the man that is my next great adventure. Partner in the things yet to be explored. The man who intercepts me at the end of the day. Shares a meal, glass of wine, conversation. Hot sex. Tucks me in.
The range of options is wide. A drink, a hike, some off beat idea. If we have exchanged messages, talked on the phone... Sets the stage.
I have been on some crazy over the top dates that were awkward & been on some that were not memorable only to have a great connection to the person.
