Just a passionate-creative-thinker-artsy-(mostly)vegan-outdoorsy/nature-progressive type looking for love.
I'm looking for a genuinely nice guy. Someone intelligent, fun, and loving who's trying to make the world a better place in some way.
I prefer to meet up for coffee or a walk right away rather than exchanging lots of emails. A person can be anyone through email but really it's about chemistry and that you can only discover in person.
I am simultaneously intense and down to earth. I enjoy deep conversations and serious work, but equally value almost constant silliness and finding fun in little things. I have a contagious laugh and tend to giggle a lot.
I’m a creative person. I express myself through my work as a teacher, with abstract mixed-media painting, as well as through cooking a good meal (usually while listening to NPR), and most recently by playing guitar (having a fun of ton learning to play!). I've become quite a health nut and spend a lot of time thinking about (and then acting on) how to make myself a better person physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I enjoy working out, walking and hiking. I am most at peace at the sea’s edge, but appreciate any body of water I can get to. I'm working on cultivating a porch garden because I love the idea of eating my own home grown veggies. I'm starting to save for a house. I'd love to have a real garden, have time to make my own tofu, and have safe outdoor space for my kitty-cat to roam freely. But, I'd most like to make that investment with a caring partner.
From family to friends to lovers, relationships are really important to me. I value deep, genuine connection to others. I am an open person. I am confident and comfortable with who I am and seek the same in a partner.
I am educated and political, sensitive and generous, passionate and loving and would appreciate these qualities in a man.
