Where to start...well, right now I am practicing putting myself out there, being vulnerable, and asking for what I want. I'm feeling pretty empowered these days, thoroughly enjoying my life, and I really want to share myself with people, to have FUN meeting new people and enjoy the process of getting to know someone, and see where things go. I'm in grad school at CIIS, and I'm in love with what I study (East-West psychology.) I'm an avid yoga student and hopeful teacher, heading toward some kind of holistic healing practice that incorporates yoga/movement, meditation, and talk therapy. I'm very focused and excited by my work right now, and I am looking for a partner who has at least some level of interest in what I am doing. At the same time, I am definitely looking for someone I can just chill out and have fun with. I have a tendency to want everything to be really meaningful, so someone who can lighten things up and make me laugh is very appealing. I seriously love my friends, and meaningful relationships are extremely important to me; I would probably say they top my list of the valuable things in life, and superficial interactions make me so miserable. I cherish music. I am passionate about embodiment and movement. I think our bodies are such incredible gifts and help us to experience life, and therefore I think it is REALLY important how we treat them. Food is one of my favorite topics of conversation. I love to cook, and I definitely support organic, local, all that stuff. I don't judge anyone for their choices, but I do care about how we engage with our food and I like to feel supported by the people around me making healthy choices--most of the time, anyway. And, booze is fun. :)
On free weekends, I do my best to get into nature as much as possible. I think nature is sacred. Seriously. I fully admit to being a legit hippy on that front. I develop relationships with plants and trees and such. Don't knock it till you try it. Ideally I'd like to meet someone who is into spending time in the unbelievable natural wonders that northern california (or anywhere else) has to offer.
I like talking about deep stuff like the meaning of life, relationships, and spirituality. I also think it is crucial to play, and I am looking for someone I can play with. I don't have expectations of meeting my future life partner through this website--so let's just hang out, have fun, not take ourselves too seriously and see where things go-- but ultimately I want a partner who wants to grow, to explore, to have meaningful conversations, as well as roll around in the grass, sit quietly in the woods, dance spontaneously in the kitchen, have crazy sex, and giggle in bed. I'm looking for someone who doesn't need to be the life of the party, doesn't feel like he has to prove himself, who can be quietly content, but who is genuinely interested in other people. I'm looking for people who are interested in sharing themselves authentically. If you happen to like to meditate, do yoga, or talk about astrology, we will most likely at least have plenty to talk about.
