I am most content when I am outdoors, traveling, discovering, and/or seeking out a new adventure. I have an amazing circle of friends and family but - clearly - still looking for the elusive love connection. Looking for a dynamic, active, loyal partner. If that's you, let's share some wine, or a bike ride, or a walk around Wash Park.
Who I am: I was drawn to the mountains after skiing with my family as a teenager. So, here I landed - Aspen, Boulder, and now Denver (10 years almost). Definitely not an urbanite by any means, but I appreciate the pockets and the lifestyle Denver offers. I am most passionate about biking. Road riding first and foremost, especially when I am riding mountain passes and can completely get into a meditative state while pedaling. Townie rides also keep me satiated when I am commuting to work or riding to a good meal. And then there's traveling. I was fortunate enough to study in Israel for high school and circumnavigate the globe on semester at sea during college, both piquing my curiosity of the world and wanting more, always.
Sure, I could tell you all about my ideal qualities in a perfect partner (for me), but it isn't really about characteristics - instead seeking a connection that is felt and that just might not be easily explained. Okay, here is the short list: honest, genuine, trustworthy, adventuresome, thoughtful, funny, light-hearted, unassuming, and ambitious.
What else shall I tell you.... I like yoga, telemark skiing (skinning mostly), snowshoeing, hiking, climbing peaks, wandering aimlessly, and reading (been in a book club for just shy of ten years). I love devouring the Sunday NYT. I work in the public health field and have a vested interest in ensuring that social justice and equitable resources are part of the conversation.
The last thing I'll say is: I believe in true partnership, shared responsibility, mutual gain, complementary skills and interests, and growth opportunities. Sometimes it is the openness to an experience that allows for a relationship to flourish. My utmost concern is to be understood, to understand completely, and to both give and feel true compassion, acceptance, and empathy.
