ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I’m an adventurer, a world traveler, a full time artist, a gardener, an animal lover, and a community volunteer. I enjoy being outdoors and would love to find a hiking partner. I’m in the process of getting certified to be a life coach. I am energetic and have a passion for adventures - both in remote corners of the globe and in my own backyard. I'm optimistic, affectionate and fun and I strive for a good work/life balance with great emphasis on mindfulness. I enjoy honest and direct communication in all aspects of my life.

I've lived in Mexico, traveled a bit in Europe and spent considerable time in Vietnam, Bali, India, Cambodia and Thailand. When I do travel, I like to seek adventure and off-the-beaten-path experiences. A few years ago, I bought a motorbike in Vietnam and drove it from Hanoi to Saigon over 6 weeks. I enjoyed accepting invitations to stay in people's homes along the way and really getting to know the culture and the delightful people. I have many fun stories from that adventure and really enjoy swapping travel tales with people. I would love to find a partner who enjoys this kind of independent travel as well.

Despite my wanderlust, I’m also very much a “girl next door” and love spending time in my community, at my house and in my gardens. I enjoy working on projects around my house. I'm currently building a very custom craftsman-style bookcase for what will be my library. I've almost completed the Master Gardener program (only 6 more weeks!) and am using that information to overhaul the gardens at the house I purchased last year.

For the past 11 years, I’ve been a full time artist and make my living traveling around the US exhibiting and selling my art work (mixed media assemblage) at juried art shows. I am financially secure and responsible; definitely not a "starving artist." Prior to being an artist, I was an attorney and practiced law in Nashville for 7 years.

I am a "can-do" kind of lady, but adore a guy who says "Let me help you with that!" Although I'm progressive in most areas of my life, I’m a little old fashioned when it comes to dating. My parents have been married for 48 years and have passed on similar values to me.

The man I would like to meet has a kind heart and a gentle soul. He is generally happy, open-minded and armed with a passport (or is dying to get one!). He is confident, intelligent and generally optimistic about life. He knows that being a nice guy and having backbone are not mutually exclusive. He's curious about the world and wants to do his part to make it a better place. He smiles a lot and is kind to others. He enjoys stimulating conversations. He's emotionally available, mature and a gentleman. His friends and family describe him as “a genuinely good guy.” He values a supportive partner and is one himself. If you are shy about deep discussions we will likely not be a good match. I want to know and be deeply known by my partner.

I hope that we would share things like adventure travel to exotic places, spirituality, going to hear live music, bike rides, hikes in the woods, sangrias in the garden as the day winds down, volunteering, playing cards and board games, collecting art, entertaining friends, reading books to each other, gardening, cooking, camping and kayaking, going to the farmers' market, antiquing, playing with pets, listening to NPR, exploring all corners of Chattanooga and surrounding areas, watching movies, snuggling up on the back deck and enjoying some quiet time together.

While I enjoy winking in person, in the online Match context, I would prefer to receive an email from you.

If what I've told you about who I am and who I'm looking for strikes a chord with you, email me. If I make new friends through this site, that would be great and if I meet someone who sets off a spark that would be wonderful. I'm open to all possibilities. :)

Last read:

I read a lot and on many subjects - spirituality, culture, art, myth. Two of my favorite recent reads were "Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts and "Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in N Korea" Both were absolutely fascinating!!!
