ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

OK, so this whole match experience feels a little odd at times--an internet bar/club of sorts--but I suppose it's our reality for the time being. And although my nights of bar and club hopping have long since passed, being curious and exploring new facets of life remain part of environmental DNA.

A little background: life's blessings and challenges, its ups and downs, have given me a healthy perspective and proven that living with passion is the only way to go. And what an interesting journey it's been--widowed in my 20s, then surviving divorce, changing careers, lots of travel, and more. So it's no surprise I enjoy living in the moment and practicing mindfulness, while, of course, keeping an eye on the future. There's still much more to do, to learn, and to offer to this life as well as to the right person--a woman who's thoughtful, intelligent, takes care of herself, is at peace with the past and present, and eager to see what the future will bring.

More background: I'm proud of my So Cal roots, love occasional adventures and spontaneity as well as everyday things like cooking good food (yes, I do, but I'll be honest, I prefer the role of sous chef), heartfelt conversation, a good laugh, entertainment of all kinds (of course, who doesn't?), and all the simple pleasures around us. When a person gets to know me, I can be equal parts silly, thoughtful and I certainly know when there's a need to be serious. I'm not uptight nor superficial; rather, my personality is easy going. Health and well-being are super important for me, so the gym and other physical activities are part of my routine, as is eating well. I'm not going to stress when things get hectic or challenging, and, while I'll always maintain a passion for traveling the world, I'm just as happy exploring locally or enjoying a lazy evening at home. The key for me is to simply embrace what life offers.

I'm hoping to find someone believes in having a similar lifestyle; someone who, like me, seeks friendship, romance, and believes in offering kindness, generosity, understanding and depth, since all of these are vital for a relationship to thrive. Someone who offers and expects honesty and transparency from their partner. Do you yearn to live with passion and compassion, with a blend of a little intellectual curiosity and healthy dose of laughter? Are you one who is self-aware, finds common ground and enjoys simplicity in your life? Is a committed relationship what you seek? If you share some of these same sentiments, then I would hope we could chat...

One last thing: let's pretend for a minute that the match website is that metaphorical club/bar I mentioned. Based on the number of emails, winks and likes you're receiving, is your table surrounded by a bunch of guys offering a drink and trying to hit on you? If so, that's great but I'm not really interested in competing for your attention; however, if the DJ's playing a good song and you wanna dance, maybe I'm your guy. Then perhaps we can have that drink and hopefully a nice long talk. To be continued? Peace to you.

For fun:

spontaneity, a splurge, a weekend trip; good company, food, and film. live music, sports, theater, and comedy. exploring the city, beach, mountains and all things cultural. anything active or just staying in, recharging the battery. i'm open minded.

Favorite hot spots:

been fortunate to travel often over the years (and will again in 2014) but it's a big planet. these never get old: catalunya, colombia and all of california, although any place--on another continent or around the corner--is a potential favorite.

Favorite things:

sooo many things...a few: seeing my daughter's life unfold; good coffee; making someone's day; a workout; any social occasion; a meaningful chat; passion; recalling a dream; making a nice meal; a genuine smile; a prolonged hug; reason for a toast.

Last read:

first choice is a periodical--the kind i can hold in my hands but also online; then nonfiction, and when there's time, i love paulo coehlo, lots of spanish-language writers, the counterculture greats; and throw in my students' work--love their stuff.
