ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

Gah! I hate this part, and would be truly thrilled to be done with this bit. But I'll try to make it an interesting read, dust off my English Lit degree...

I am told my best qualities are kindness, intelligence, and generosity to my friends. On good days I agree, but can also be a great big dork on occasion. Most of my happiest moments have happened outside somewhere beautiful, and I try to get outside as much as I can. Cross country skiing in the Arboretum and swimming at Walden are two of my very favorite local things to do, as well as pretty much any nature-related activity. I'd love to find someone up for bigger adventures- I'd put up with a lot of crap for someone who would go on an AMC hut hike with me! Faults include a serious lack of popular music knowledge, very occasional lapses in common sense, and growing up in L.A. (Don't be a hater- at least I'm not a Lakers fan.)

I'm looking for love (duh), and also: friendship, fun, community, someone to hike, snow shoe, share a gourmet meal and bottle of wine with... did I mention fun? Often feel I'm not having nearly enough. I'm not a crazy athlete- but an interest in being active and outdoors is probably a good idea.

As with most, I'm not a one note song: I love to get dressed up (complete with make up and perfume- I swear!) and go out for dinner and dancing, also love to get out my power drill and fix something around the house. I am probably most at home in my family's cabin in the Colorado Rockies, but have grown to love Boston and city living (as long as I can get my fresh air fix every day). My fashion sense ranges from sequins to flannel, but if you're looking for a Tiffany's / blown out hair / clutch purse fashionista, might as well hit the "next" button.

Yes, I have an amazing 9 year old daughter, and my life is richer and more fun and more interesting because of her. I do have free time (benefits of an amicable divorce) but she's 9, and I'm a good mom, so she's a big part of my life. I am *probably* done with kids of my own, but welcome anyone else's.

Despite the mom thing and my inner Martha Stewart (which I am slightly ashamed of but oh well it's there), I think I may be more open-minded / arty / edgy than perhaps some of the usual Boston area women. Maybe arts high school in L.A.? Modern dancer friends? Professional artist parents? I think I'm uber normal, but everyone should do crazy stuff from time to time.

I don't lie, I don't do drama, I don't have heavy baggage, I'm not a bit crazy, and I prefer a no-bs strategy to relationships.

The best compliment I ever got was that I was half Audrey and half Katharine (namesake) with a bit of Mae West thrown in. If you grew up in this country and you don't know what I'm talking about you're too young for me.

Things that make me happy:

touch
Burdick's hot chocolate
moving
The Moth radio hour- it is so fantastic
When Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" comes on and I'm not expecting it- best opening bars EVER
Most of what comes out of my daughter's mouth
Scent memories
e.e. cummings
Bravery. This is an underrated quality these days.
cool water on a hot day
coffee w/ half n half, eggs sunny side up on toast with butter and marmalade. There is little in my life that can't be fixed by this.

I'm looking for someone who's all grown up but knows how to play. Someone who's engaged and wants to get all up in the business of life, instead of sitting on the bleachers watching everyone else. Knowing who you are and what you want out of life (more or less) is a plus. I'm looking for someone who believes in equality- in a relationship and (just as important) in the world.

I'm not sure who my "perfect match" is, to be honest. I just know I'm looking for more than I have now. I respond more to messages than likes or winks. Go big or go home, right?

For fun:

My faves are outdoorsy stuff like hiking and camping, but I also like museums, dining high and low, even sporting events, although it's not my #1 thing. I would love to hear more live music- have VIP passes whenever Fitz & Tantrums come to town fyi;)

Favorite hot spots:

Hmm, there's a bunch of local JP / Brookline restaurants I like, not sure if these are hot enough. I love to go out dancing, but since it's hard to find a guy who likes to camp AND go out dancing I'll take the outdoorsy stuff any day.

Favorite things:

I think I already have a list going somewhere, but here's a few more: outdoor bathing, hot springs of any kind, coffee caramel flan, feeling like I'm starting to really be able to help people with this acupuncture thing, being inspired.

Last read:

The NIght Circus, Shadow Country, The New Yorker, Anna Karenina (reread) and many many interesting books on various kinds of acupuncture. I can't wait until I have more time to read, I have a to-read list a mile long..
