I am intelligent, creative, honest, independent, empathetic, romantic and passionate. I am not interested in competition or materialism. I have long term, stable employment and work part time, evenings. I am a night owl not a morning person. I am concerned about social justice and the environment. I have volunteered several times in my community. I love animals and nature. I live with cats and feed a feral cat colony near my job. I have plants and bird feeders on my balcony. I love to walk along the beach, around the lake and in the woods. I enjoy cooking, listening to music and going to concerts, watching independent film, reading, playing Scrabble, exploring museums, making beaded jewelry and taking photographs. I am an adamant nonsmoker, rarely drink and never use any drugs. I am politically progressive, Jewish but not religious at all. I enjoy children and am a Big Sister to an 8 year old girl. I have several 30 to 40 year long friendships. I am looking for a man who shares many of my values, interests, qualities and needs. Someone who is truly emotionally, physically and financially stable and available for a relationship based on communication, honesty and friendship. I would like to find a genuine man who wants to date, become friends, hopefully fall in love. I am searching for a partner to share my life with and to give my love to.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
After some emails, IM, telephone conversations, I would like to meet for a meal or a walk in nature and talk to see if we are compatible.
