Creative, independent, healthy woman, self-reliant, secure, social, transparent and interested in the many things listed above. I am most comfortable around social, easy going people who share a sense of humor and intelligent conversation.
My job is now volunteering, filling my calendar, living a good life, sometimes just living, planning, more filling. Could you wedge yourself in there and break it up a bit? I do cooking, I'm very good, but not fat, travel is my release but you don't have to come along. Particularly if you are a guy who likes to sleep next to the dirt in a tent. I prefer hotels, fancy not required . . I enjoy the performing arts and listening to live music. I like to be active. When I run out of things to do . . I'm reading, gardening, creative sewing, painting or walking. I don't do TV, though I enjoy movies. I can be a night owl. Generally I entertain myself, but would be open to new experiences. I wouldn't say no to a travel or cooking partner.
In meeting someone:
I'm open to the small steps that often lead to a larger commitment: friendship, just being around one another, feeling, what that time is like, mutual understanding, maybe more. Willing to relocate to an urban, intellectual environment.
A level of intimacy including honesty, politeness, choosing compliments over criticism, allowing that beauty and comfort don't necessarily equate to the most expensive item. I appreciate people who have healthy habits, are responsible, have a sense of order and make an effort to maintain friendships. I also value a sense of humor, willingness to compromise, knowledge, self reliance, attention to detail, as well as creativity on many levels. I notice and value an artistic flair in dress and personal living space.
I think that shared values are important, but understand the significance of tolerance and compromise.
I am fortunate to have a secure, rich life, but I miss having someone who misses me.
Either enjoy a beverage together or if you live on the wild side . . take a French freighter to Fatu Hiva, along the way watch the flying parrotfish, pick up a bag of ylang ylang, harvest some vanilla, share fresh coconut water from the shell.
