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 places, people and things.
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. I've enjoyed travel to spark my imagination and color my life .
Free time involves reading, gardening, creative sewing, painting and walking. No TV, though I enjoy movies. I'm a night owl.
Interested, however I don't follow politics or world affairs everyday. I am environmentally aware, though not extreme.
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.
