Friends would say I have a broad sense of humor, stand by them over the long haul, and am artistically creative.
I'm financially secure and could take time off, but enjoy my job teaching music.
I've recorded four CD's over the last ten years. Back in the '90's I had a painting career, but now I love writing. Recently, I finished up a "near-future" novel.
I'm grateful to have sisters who tell me when I'm doing well, or acting like a total freakin' fool.
Seeing a few of the kids I teach music to, really grasping it, makes me smile. But so does soup at Whole Foods, or finding the last banana bread at Trader Joes, or seeing an intelligent woman smiling back.
I'm not addicted to the latest gadget, the newest upgrade, or to celebrities famous only for being famous.
Contentment and gratitude are much better goals than the insatiable quest for constant happiness.
I like to stay healthy, and excercise at the gym to maintain my slender status, but not into artificially-induced bulk.
Hope to meet someone who is creative in their life, who likes people and is calm. Someone who is happy around others, but also content alone and not in need of constant attention. (Not high-maintenence, high-drama or high-strung.)
I believe in (non-brutal) honesty, monogamy and trust. And I seek someone who wants the same.
I like to go to restaurants, clubs, bars, concerts, theater, hikes, beach, wineries, galleries, road trips and am open to let other people suggest things.
A sense of humor is essential. I try to make other people laugh as much as possible. Bonus points if you make me laugh.
Looking for someone to treat to dinner, see concerts with, take on trips and be relaxed around. I'm also fine w/ making new friends. Sometimes attraction not evident on 1st dates, grows through friendship.
I'm allergic to zealots who want to convert you to their fad diets or zany beliefs. (Been there; endured that.)
The one real deal-breaker is right-wing conservatives. If "some other viewpoint" means Fox News, and if Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann are inspirational role models, it's not going to work.
