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.
I do lots of volunteering generally related to cooking or theater. I can generally entertain myself, but would be open to new experiences.
I love cooking for the tasting and creative process. Finding new foods is one of the benefits of travel and a great reason for sharing meals with friends who also like to cook. A favorite pastime is hosting a dinner party with intelligent conversations about books, movies, life, science, history . . . . . I'd love to have a cooking partner!
I've enjoyed travel to spark my imagination and color my life. How wonderful to experience the world near and far with another, sharing beautiful vistas, humorous moments, tender challenges and create long term memories (while we still can).
I like to be active, and my free time involves reading, gardening, creative sewing, painting and walking. No TV, though I enjoy movies. I'm a night owl.
In meeting someone:
I'm open to the small steps that often lead to a larger commitment: friendship, just being around one another and seeing, 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.
