ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a fabulous person with a big heart and a great brain (and a big, sexy body), seeking a kindred spirit who shares my love of reading, writing, fitness, spirituality, progressive politics, exploration, pop culture, beaches, mountains, cats, and all kinds of conversations, for starters.

I am intelligent and opinionated, yet also sensitive, real, and caring, and I own that I'm fully human/imperfect. As of February 2014, I have recently ended an "open" relationship and I'm taking some time to grieve this loss/change. When I'm ready, I want to meet others who are single, mature, and emotionally available, who are unique, intelligent, and fun, who value and practice integrity and honesty, and who know they are still learning from all their relationships. I doubt that I will enter another "open" relationship as I seem to prefer monogamy.

I don't know who these people are who say they have "no baggage" or want "no drama" -- it seems unrealistic or even dishonest. I think we all have baggage and sometimes it causes drama and if we are open and honest we can do our best to learn from it. I also think there are times when we check our baggage and just focus on being in the moment. Either way, I think honesty and kindness (to self and others) are paramount.

The right person for me will love my heart, my brain, my body, and my intensity in all things political and personal, will respect my need for "alone time" as much as my need for healthy communication and emotional and physical contact, and will know how to help me regain my "silly" side when the (sad/bad/violent/insane) news of the world gets to be too much for me. My intelligence can be my ally, in making me observant and witty/funny, or my enemy, in making me take on too much of the world's faults and problems and losing my balance internally.

I'm in a transitional time in my life, living with and helping out my parents while figuring out what I want to do for a career in this harsh "new" economy. Presently, I work part-time jobs in teaching, writing and editing, and retail. I also write poetry and attend local art and poetry-type events as my schedule allows.

My reading/listening interests run the gamut from Anne Lamott to Will Shortz (from A to Z, get it?). I adore Comedy Central's cable news spoofs. And I enjoy movies, tho I try to avoid seeing too much violence as well as those graphically stupid "buddy" flicks and vastly overrated rom-coms (but I do have a soft spot for Sandra Bullock). Anyone who quotes Bill and Ted, Monty Python, or The Princess Bride, not to mention Star Wars and Star Trek, effectively and amusingly and who loves good grammar and spelling is likely to be a big, brainy turn-on for me.

I am a leftist feminist and while this does not make me a "man-hater" it does make me less than tolerant of some of the "normal" conduct of "typical" males and if YOU are racist, sexist, or homophobic or you're hooked on Rush Limbaugh or Fox News and their ilk, I am NOT interested in dating you, although I respect your right to disagree with me on every level and I honestly wish you well.

And I'm serious about the headline: YOU MUST LOVE CATS. This is a deal-breaker or -maker. I don't dress up my cat in baby-doll clothes or anything like that, but she's been with me longer than ANY man, so there are times when she is going to take priority over you, and you should be man enough to understand that this is not a comment on your masculinity or your desirability.

Finally, because I have mixed feelings about meeting someone "online" -- and because money is TIGHT these days -- I have yet to cough up the money for a membership, so please forgive me if you contact me and I do not reply. It's NOT personal.

Mahalo for your kokua. Aloha!

I'm embarrassed by not having a more "traditional" career path. I'm also aware that I'm living in the New Economy, whereas I grew up preparing for the old model. So, I''m adjusting my expectations. In the Zen/wise words of Dory: "Just keep swimming."

BACKGROUND/VALUES:
Ethnicity:
Other
Asian, Black / African descent, East Indian, Latino / Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Native American, Pacific Islander, White / Caucasian, Other

While I'm aware that where we come from affects us, being more radical than liberal, I'm far more concerned about our political and personal compatibility than our "ethnicity." I find ethnicity, body type, and income questions off-putting.

Faith:
Other
Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist / Taoist, Spiritual but not religious, Other

Raised by atheists, with friends of many religious and spiritual persuasions, I find most religions suspect but am fascinated with aspects of spirit, faith practices, and energy work. If you're deeply religious and want a Christian Lady, I'm NOT her.

Languages:
English
English
Education:
Graduate degree
Bachelors degree, Graduate degree, PhD / Post Doctoral

I enjoyed school and love academic learning but I also keenly value my lived experience -- and yours. I'd like to learn more about you from your life stories. I don't trust men who purposefully seek women with far less education (or $) than they have
