I love guys who are warm-hearted, intellectually stimulating, fit (not necessarily buff-there's a lot more to life than the gym) and have a good sense of humor. I am looking for a guy who feels like a best friend. Kudos if any of the rest of this meandering applies to you. (P.S. Sunday Kind of love is one that sticks around)
I am an adventurous person who loves dancing, outdoor exploration, travel, and the cultural amenities (music,theater,art & literature) of the city. I love long heart felt talks and intellectual meanderings. I am fortunate enough to love my work and have time to pursue my interest in writing. I am dedicated to walking lightly on the earth. My funnybone is attuned to a broad span ranging from goofy to dry to uproarious hilarity. I love avant-garde and foreign films and movies, especially if whimsical with a touch of magic - like Baghdad Cafe.
If you are a good match for me, you probably think outside of the box. I hope that you enjoy dancing and that you love music, but are not that crazy about bars. The following pairs probably appeal to you: mature/playful; exuberant/introspective; responsible/adventurous. (I am also very fond of a sexy voice.) Being fit and healthy have been lifelong goals for me, and it's what I desire in a partner. I respond well to patience and a talent for appreciation. Men that I admire care about the environment and make changes accordingly. Spirituality, not religiousity, a plus.
All the above being said, I understand that all one ever gets is another human being. Relationships are places where stuff shows up, and there is always stuff no matter how hard and long you have worked on yourself. The above desires are just an attempt to gain enough of a commonality and strong enough bond to sustain the relationship while stuff and growth happens. I believe relationships can thrive in an atmosphere of giving and receiving, openness and acceptance, good communication and good love making. I choose dating because courting comes before partnership. So come on over and sit a spell. It's JUST coffee!

There are a zillion places to get coffee in Seattle, but I would almost always do something more interesting like walking or sharing a bite to eat at a Thai or Indian or French restaurant.
