I am feeling in this sweet, easy place of taking things slow. Interested in meeting a very romantic, special someone to explore and share eclectic adventures, fun, simple pleasures, laughter~friends first (!) taking our time, being open and appreciative of each other feels like a good start~over time building trust, discovering mutual desires, interests, goals, shared values, emotional availability, intimacy, sensual touch, tenderness, honesty, kindness, thoughtfulness balance, as well as, authentic communication and deep soulful connecting are all very important to me. Ultimately, I'm looking to invest in something true and lasting, joyous and sustainable~a committed, long-term relationship where passion thrives in all we share and we mutually challenge, inspire, support and bring out the best in each other. Surprise me!
More About Me ~
I am intelligent, wise, thoughtful, affectionate, sensitive, deeply nurturing, heartfelt, complex, intense, very loving and passionate. I’m a mother of a grown daughter whom I love very much. Self-assured, both feet on the ground, can do/be anything that I set my mind to. I'm independent, self-sustaining and entrepreneurial and love my profession that I’ve been privileged to do for 27 years, making a difference in peoples lives. I really savor my creative/artistic sides as well, as they add soulful balance to my life. I’m fun, spirited and very playful and appreciate the joy and sweetness found in the simplest of moments. Enjoy being active as much as relaxing and being still. Always find time for quiet reflection. A lover of the arts, music and literature. Insatiably curious, a seeker and hunger for knowledge. I live from a deeply committed place for those I love, family, friends, my work and my community through volunteering.
Oh...gourmet cooking & sharing it (I so love this!!), and arranging my fresh flowers, baking my homemade bread to share with others, celebrating the changing of seasons (Mmmm) & with such delight, spoiling my two adorable French Bulldogs (impish little rascals that always warm my heart & make me smile)! Creating a nurturing conscious space of comfort, warmth & beauty in my home. Sharing appreciation, tenderness, reveling in thought, reflection and play...intellectual banter, we both love the arts, music and literature and we savor those special moments when we are laying back and relaxing...simply being or steeped in some deep & meaningful conversations (or just quietly snuggling~Mmmm) in front of a warm, cozy fire...this is what warms my heart and soul.Courageously living my truth, committed to openness & integrity…even when it hurts or may even break my heart.Living from passion is truly the fire that inspires it ALL for me~my inner light that keeps me trusting, loving and moving towards my True North. I'm feeling open for love and romance, now~to sharing this adventure and the many uncharted explorations of heart, body, mind, soul yet to come...
Perhaps With You ~
You are a warm, affectionate, wise, inquisitive soul, loves to have fun, enjoys surprise and adventure, a thoughtful communicator, romantic, honest, emotionally available and ready for one special woman (not several!) to explore life together. You have a creative spirit, emotional maturity~are open, passionate, loyal, loving, kind, live with integrity and your word is sacred. You have a calm, grounded, yet excited outlook on life & live with intention & quiet verve & you love to laugh & play! You are physically active, take care or your well-being/health: body, mind, heart, spirit & soul & have some edge & style & are unafraid to show it. You possess a thoughtful confidence & are not intimidated by my strengths. Prefers the road less traveled. Lives consciously & can stay up all night with me doing whatever inspires our passions (even dinner at midnight?) till the sun comes up whenever the mood strikes. Oh & can order from the wine list!! And the willingness to teach me about your passions, your hungers, your strengths, your weaknesses, your shadows & your fears & is someone I can trust & be my best friend & partner. Inspires me to laugh at your jokes? And you know how to use levity to get through life's BS. Just knows how to firmly embrace me, and when to playfully tease me...and especially when to really listen to me, always (as I would you) when things are going wonderfully or when times are challenging, feeling sensitive or vulnerable (in those tender moments a warm silent hug can feel like heaven)! I'm looking for a soulful, brave and courageous man...who is finally ready and willing to follow his heart, his intuition & passions this time around...having learned the wisdom to know the difference and what truly matters, now. Inspire me!

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A couple of emails, a mutual exchange of (current/accurate) pictures...then a phone call and/or meeting for a brief cup of coffee or perhaps a glass of wine....depending on our schedules...perhaps somewhere quiet and pleasant and allows us to feel out the comfort and chemistry between us.
Be very clear on this part...If you are separated or recently divorced, don't even bother...go out and find yourself, I'm not looking for a project or someone to soothe through all the healing you have yet to move through...go out and explore and learn about yourself and life...just not on my time. Also, I am unwilling to invest in spending a ton of time with back and forth emails prior to meeting in person...and meeting in person means...sooner rather than later as I consider my time valuable and am interested in the reality and chemistry of our connection far more then the lure of great writing, interesting phone conversations that play havoc into the possibility of building up false expectations add bordering on fantasy. I have zip interest in that type of connecting. I'm interested in real people...discovering what is really true...and exploring (face to face) our chemistry resonance. From there...taking our time...to explore whatever next. But, at least knowing who and what we are investing our time and energy into/with from that point on. So, if you're not up to meeting within a few days or a week or two from first communications...(if not in person...due to schedules...then, make it Skype, FaceTime or Google Chat...but, I expect to see a real live face...and experience our energy in one "live" form or another) otherwise...let's not waste each others time. I mean, what's the point otherwise?
PS. All my pictures are very accurate/current~taken in 2014 (except for 2) and ALL are "untouched"...(no PhotoShop, enhancements/corrections)...so, what you see is truly me, how I accurately look today. I'd appreciate the same authentic sharing of your pictures with me, as well...I mean, it's only fair and honorable to start on the same playing field...and at some point we may just meet in person...right?
NON-SMOKER and impeccable hygiene Mandatory...it represents a consciousness and self-esteem-thing, for me. (This site doesn't seem to allow me to place this preference anywhere, so I am inserting it here).
