Important: It seems to me people are just firing off quick messages without reading profiles at all. So, if you message me, I'll know you read my profile if you write "squirrel" in the message to me, and I will be much more likely to respond!
In terms of what I'm looking for on the surface level of things....I don't have a car - my bike is my car. So I need to be dating someone who either lives close to me or close to public transportation. Also, I don't tend to be attracted to the "a little extra" or overweight body types. Beyond that, I'd love to find a generous, kind, playful spirit to be with.
I'm pretty silly and playful in good company. I'm 42, which most folks are extremely surprised to learn when first meeting me. My playful spirit helps me look and feel young apparently! I'm good at helping people have a good time. I draw people out with my warm, whimsical energy. And I'm totally attracted to that same energy in others. I think we're all kids at heart, and my closest friends say I inspire them to stay childlike and silly.
I am both talkative and good at listening. Open-hearted, kind people who enjoy the playful side of life are attractive to me. It’s important to me to communicate deeply and meaningfully with those I’m close to.
Over the years, I've learned how to be more in my body and in the present. Massage has been a wonderful discovery for me. I get to help people, connect through touch, and ground myself in the present moment. Buddhism and my meditation practice also help me stay in the here and now. It's so easy for our minds to go off on their own road trip without us!

I’m a vegan currently experimenting with adding some fish into my diet to see how it affects my health, as well as eating some eggs from our 17-person community’s chickens. And yes, I date omnivores too.
About us: Do you like cuddling on the couch? Turning up the heat on the playa? Occasionally choosing a long steamy night at home over a less steamy one on the town? We might be a good match! And... more about us: I’d like to say I’m laid-back, but I’m from the east coast, and those sensibilities of being on time, or letting someone know if I’m not going to be on time, are still with me. Although I love love love the creative wacky freedom of the Bay Area, it's important to me that people respect timeliness, or communicate when they're running late.
