A little about me...
I am a bright, active, politically progressive woman who loves the arts, music, languages, travel, learning about new cultures, and water sports, particularly swimming. I am a great conversationalist, curious, compassionate, and love to share who I am with the right person. Also capable of being silly, and can banter very well---although not as the main mode of communication! I love to paint, draw, and visit art museums, and galleries.
Have lived in several states, as well as in Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Guatemala. Living abroad at different times in my life has profoundly impacted my world view.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for someone who is interested in taking the time to get to know each other, who values honesty, and enjoys discussing current events, going for hikes, to art galleries, traveling to new places, trying new foods, exploring. Someone who is a good listener, is generous,. I value men who take care of themselves, are physically active, and who also like down time at home, domestic and foreign films. Sharing similiar progressive political views is important. Looking for someone who is self-aware, capable of committment, likes to have fun.
I'd just like to add...
There are many ingredients of a good relationship....a few would include: Being able to compromise, discuss areas of difference, and being able to create a balance between time together and time alone. Trust is paramount, as well as honesty and integrity.If you love water, that is a huge plus! Enjoying each others' conversation is super important as well!
(****I am not compatible with smokers, you should absolutely look like your pictures, in person!!, and height and weight must be proportional. As well, not into games, drama, or anyone who is more than a social drinker. I am not a follower of organized religion, having personally explored many---if you are, you need to be open-minded and tolerant of all.
PLEASE NOTE: An out-of-state relationship is probably not workable for ME. Also, gentlemen, it is a BUMMER to open up a profile that has "send me a message", and nothing else---geeeez, what are the chances I'm gonna respond?!!

Love to travel, particularly overseas. Usually try and do a big trip every summer. I love learning about other cultures, exploring towns and villages and trying new foods. Like to immerse myself, when possible.
I love art, particularly modern/abstract. Enjoy gallery/museums . Love plastic arts, sculpture, ceramics...
Nature and Outdoors
Have lived in some beautiful places where the emphasis was on engaging with the out-doors. Always love being in natural water, mountains, forests....---find being active out-side is cathartic, soothing, and healthy! Love to swim, hike, bike, canoe, kayak....and more!
