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, yoga, spirituality, progressive politics, exploration, "culture," beaches, mountains, cats, and all kinds of conversations.

I am intelligent and opinionated, yet also sensitive, real, and caring, and I own that I'm fully human/imperfect. 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. Like anyone, I have "baggage" but I believe we learn from working through our "stuff" alone and together. I also think it is essential to be able to laugh together and to love with kindness and courtesy.

I can't find an adequate word on this site to describe my physical body. I am overweight. I know it and I am working on it but I am NOT seeking physical perfection in myself or others. When I love someone, I love them from head to toe and back again, and I find their physical "flaws" unique and endearing. If you can't bring the same kind of loving to the table, don't bother me.

I've been loved in this body, and it's wonderful, so I'm done being rejected for my FAT. A lot of men on here are PICKY and thus are missing out on meeting some great women. But "not my monkeys, not my circus." Look, we're all adults. My weight is not your business to resent or to blame for your intimacy/committment issues. I am not your project to fix. And I am NOT seeking a "chubby chaser" -- I'm no more interested in a man who wants ONLY my fat any more than a man who can't respect and desire a fat woman. Have the maturity to meet ME, see the WHOLE person, and talk about our shared interests and passions, or buzz off

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 contact, and he can be funny, playful, and downright silly. He can also identify what gives life to the right person for him.

I'm in a transitional time of life, teaching part-time online (for the University of Cincinnati) and helping care for 2 people with mild dementia. (This isn't always as fun as it sounds.) In my spare time, I hit the beach, exercise, and enjoy reading. Interests run the gamut from Anne Lamott to Will Shortz (from A to Z, get it?). I adore cable news spoofs. And I enjoy movies, tho I avoid crass violence and stupid "buddy" flicks, as well as the vast wasteland of rom-coms, but I have a soft spot for Sandra Bullock, and I like the occasional documentary. I'm a nerd and a writer, so any guy who quotes Bill and Ted, Monty Python, The Princess Bride, Star Wars, and Star Trek, effectively and amusingly, and who loves good grammar and spelling, is a big, brainy turn-on for me.

I am a leftist feminist. While this does not make me a "man-hater" it does make me intolerant of "typical" (e.g., frat-boy) men. So, 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. I don't dress cats in baby-doll clothes or anything like that, but I love cats and I'm not spending the rest of my life without one. In fact, there are times when my cat is going to take priority over you, and you should be man enough to understand that this is not a comment on either your masculinity or your desirability. You should also have interests that "consume" you and bring you joy!

Finally, please note that because I have mixed feelings about meeting someone online -- and because money is TIGHT -- I have yet to purchase a membership, so please forgive me if you contact me and I do not reply. It's NOT personal.

Thanks for reading this weighty tome. 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."

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, because I'm 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:
Spiritual but not religious
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
