I am a mom, a student, a best friend, a daughter. I am loyal, kind, hardworking and I enjoy life learning new things and would enjoy love if it found me... I am a single parent with my child living at home, so obviously that takes up much of my time. I work and go to school. I am an urban and modern woman with a bit of a hippy streak in me. I am an original ;-)
I am adventurous, outgoing and dislike watching TV. I enjoy getting outdoors doing just about anything. I enjoy wine, good company and better conversation. I am a bit of a free spirit and free thinker...I seek the same in a partner. I enjoy intelligent conversation about society, psychology, religion, globalization, preventative medicine, health care...not so much economics and politics...but I can hold my own :-)
I am a very happy person with a satisfying life would a partner to compliment my life...not to complete my life. I am Christian, I teach Sunday school a couple times a month. I am God fearing, with that said I have MANY other interests. While my faith is important, I am open minded, pretty liberal on social aspects (i.e. a womans right to choose, gay marriage)
What I am Looking For:
I am looking for an original. Someone who go from camping to a night out in SF in the same day, can talk about any subject intelligently, likes wine and dogs (animals) and kids too! I often attend formal parties, however, I spend my free time more happily volunteering at the urban farm, gardening, SUP'ing, snowboarding, camping or BBQ'ing with friends, so common ground there also is a necessity. Someone who leads a healthy lifestyle, no homebody types. A night at home is great, but it is not a lifestyle match. A man who appreciates a more organic and holistic lifestyle. I would love a guy who do yoga with me!
Well...if you want to know more...feel free to ask away.
My general life philosophy is best summed up with:
By Oriah Mountain Dreamer
(A Native American Elder)
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting in your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit in pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own,if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tip of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore be trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day, and if you can source your life from God's presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, "Yes!"
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done for the children.
It doesn't interest me who you are, how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
For a meet and greet-something non-committal just in case we don't click, however, flexible enough that if we did connect we can spend some more time getting to know one another. I prefer not to meet at Starbucks...let's be creative.
For an actual date- SUP'ing or listening to music somewhere, good food and good wine (if I am not driving) :-)
