I am an interesting and intelligent woman who likes the many dances and "musics" (classical, folk, acoustic) of life. It is important to me to have meaningful, playful, warm and passionate interactions with others. I like being real and am too busy to waste time being a drama-queen although I am pretty good at princess-ship. I like to be lively, gracious, stylish and laugh and have fun. I am flexible and understanding and like to try new things within moderation. I tend to be a tad analytical or scientific and love to learn. I have a healthy amount of common sense. I love that I am young at heart. I am most comfortable in jeans AND can dress to paint the town nicely too. When I am in a relationship I have fun flirting with my guy and showing my femininity tastefully. I am looking for a partnership to be honest, loving, exciting, musical, nurturing and not smothering. I like cuddling and resting my head on a warm soul. I like to be the shoulder for an accepting guy. I like gentleness and random AND deliberate acts of kindness. I am pretty liberal and green minded. I love a good political discussion about world affairs, thank goodness gwb is history and we can move forward with Obama. I listen to NPR news a lot.

I am looking for a long term relationship.
I am looking for a stable partner in the activity of love and healthy living with a good dose of zen thrown into the mix. I like and practice Yoga. I do go to the gym and pool pretty regularly.
I am looking for a dream sharer, planner and project coordinator. I am looking for a touchy, feely kind of guy, who enjoys sensuality and someone who can mutually enjoy each other including the ups and downs of life. I am looking for a loyal person and offer that as well.
I am not looking for a "friend with benefits" It may be great for safe sex, but absolutely not satisfying for my soul. And I am not interested in becoming "the other woman", so please, if you are married please don't contact me.
If you are allergic to pets or don't care for them, please move on. I prefer 5'9"+, but that is not a requirement. I work in DC and NoVA and SoMD
Thank you for reading this chatty profile. I promise, I do have quiet times too. :-)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
An enjoyable visit with time spent learning about my date and his world. I would like to be able to be myself and hope that my date would like to show me his true self as well. A date filled with laughter, smiling and a little whispering as well. I like going to museums, alternative art and shows, iMax kind of stuff, but don't really like to go out to regular movies much. I like nature sanctuaries, bird and flower watching, tubing down rivers. I like to go to a water park and play and be a kid on a hot day!
My ideal relationship:
Fun and full of laughter. Responsible at home and in life activities. I would like a relationship with someone who treasures integrity, partnership, music, learning and growth and comfort. My ideal relationship would have spark and light and love and laughter and intimacy and tenderness and intelligence, I am not asking for much, am I?
This is what I learned from my past relationships:
That partnership, KINDNESS and politeness is very important to me. And that space and time that are shared (or kept separate) each have their own and invaluable impact on me and those around me. Being realistic and accepting is great. Some of the beauties of being human are our abilities to create and perceive and reason and that can be all encompassing without limits.
