I am a Swedish professional with a quick wit, keen intellect and a strong intellectual curiosity to understand myself and people around me. I am often told that I am vivacious, assertive, exude a strong positive energy and have an easy laugh. I lead a very active lifestyle but am (somewhat ;)) at peace with the concept of growing old and plan to do so with curiosity, excitement and style.
I am looking for an intellectual, professional, emotional, and spiritual peer. We both live active lives but are looking for significantly more than an activity partner. We want a deeply intimate connection with our partner and are comfortable acknowledging that experiences and every day life gets richer if shared with someone you love. I do not have any of my own but would strongly welcome a man with children and like to think I would be a positive addition in a child's life.
I make sure that I sweat daily. I love pushing my body as it makes me feel completely alive. I am a slow but avid runner and have completed several full and half marathons with hopefully many more to come. I go to the gym every weekday morning. I also train with a run club, downhill ski (have season pass) and enjoy strenuous long hikes. I would love to meet someone who just like me enjoys pushing their physical limits and does it with a huge smile on their face. I am curvy and muscular size 14, and am very comfortable in my own skin. If your idea of attractive only comes in a slender size then I am not the one for you.
My spiritual practice is all about being mindful and present in the here and now; especially when things are challenging. I attend retreats and day-longs at Spirit Rock to support my practice. By choice I do not drink alcohol but don't mind a bit if my partner does as long as it is in moderation. Any type of recreational drugs, however, is a deal breaker as I would love for my partner to also be committed to being fully present.
I am addicted to NPR and audio books (not very Buddhist I know ;)). I rarely miss This American Life, Fresh Air, and Says You. I love board games and spending an evening with friends over dinner and a game of rummicub. My sense of humor is more cerebral than slapstick and I love love love double entendres. Making each other laugh is to me key in creating a lasting relationship. Jon Stewart and David Sedaris best represents my kind of humor but I also secretly get a kick out of Kathy Griffin.
I am an extrovert with a high energy level. I've tried dating introverts or men who where not very expressive and emotive, but it never worked well despite us liking each other. I need a man who matches my own energy and is quite driven, curious, expressive and, passionate about life in general. I am very physical and enjoy vanilla and distinctly un-vanilla displays of affection and seek a partner who is a confident, passionate and an open minded lover that enjoy courting and making his woman feel special.
We both have a “can-do” attitude towards life and more often than not see things through the lens of the "glass half-full”. Our personalities tend to be reflective rather than reactive and we remain calm in the face of adversity. We both find people who loose their temper, are passive aggressive or turn in to a turtle under pressure quite unattractive. Together we will build an exceptional and purposeful life where we bring out the best in each other and create a relationship based on acceptance, intimacy, honesty, laughter and passion.
I am a one-man-woman and come from a country where there isn't even a word for dating exclusively. In Sweden, if you ask someone for a date, it means you are not seeing anyone else and that is what you will get from me. If you are at a stage where you want to just casually date or "play the field" rather than focus on getting to know one person at a time please pass me by.
I just realized that men who's profiles appeals to me tend to, just like me, have a chemistry assessment result that states that they "exerts little control over your actions, you may find that you commit social blunders that might offend other people and get yourself in trouble." I find that quite amusing. Why don't we get together and test how accurate this test really is and see if we can get into some trouble together. ;)
