A little about me...
I'm a dynamic, high energy person, optimistic, assertive, down-to-earth, easy to talk with, intuitive, sensitive, sincere and outgoing. I'm spiritual but not religious, emotionally and financially secure and independent. I have a good sense of humor and I love to laugh. I enjoy relaxing with a good book and have a huge library. I like movies, live theatre, travel, walks, quiet times, the study of metaphysics, and music from classical to New Age to country. I value friendship first, self growth, sharing but also time alone, people with strength of character who are open to others' views, and stimulating conversation. I'm very absorbed with my life, passionate about my work and about my relationships with those who are important to me.
Born in the U. P. in DeTour, my ancestors from Leer, Norway resettled in Leer, Michigan where I grew up. Except for Columbus, Ohio when in undergrad school, and Boston after grad school, I've lived most of my life in Michigan - love the midwest! I'm a corporate and personal life coach and relationship counselor who left the corporate world in 2000 and started my own business. I love the freedom and versatility of life as an entrepreneur, and am still working two to three days/week - keeps me young!
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm interested in meeting someone who also invests heavily in what/who is important to him, who is passionate about life, people and animals. I hope he is lighthearted, has a great sense of humor and smiles a lot; that he's at least a year out of his divorce or widowhood, a nonsmoker, down to earth, playful, emotionally expressive, straightforward, independent and secure, generous with himself and others. I'd love it if he also has a good sense of who he is, and of what he wants out of life and a relationship.
I feel a healthy relationship is a balanced one, in which there is mutual respect, humor/playfulness, openness to explore/develop each other's (and the relationship's) potential, and a strong connection intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually. While I want a monogamous and permanent relationship, I'm not looking for marriage at this point in my life. I also neither expect nor hope to meet someone with whom I share all activities and interests, as I've learned that the differences in those areas can enrich a relationship as much as those shared.
I'd just like to add...
My favorites in music are Enya, Yanni, Kenny G, Celine, Josh Groban, Barbra, Clay Aiken, Ricky Martin, Adam Lambert. All-time favorite movies/television: Powder, The Secret, Ghost, Sixth Sense, Lion in Winter, SNL, The Mentalist, Long Island Medium, all Oprah classes/programs (especially Super Soul Sunday), some news magazines and much more! There doesn't seem to be enough time for all I enjoy doing! Spending time with friends, live theatre, browsing used/discount bookstores, flea markets, antique shops - occasionally fishing. Always, the person I'm with is more important than what we're doing. I've enjoyed Jamaica, Hawaii, Europe, Bermuda, the Caribbean, as well as weekend getaways to Traverse City, Stratford, Ontario or Chicago. I love cruises, and have gone on them alone many times. Last year I went on a 2-week workshop cruise to the Greek islands and then to Sedona for another workshop. I enjoy the Chix Soup books and my most recent fave reads are inspirational - The Secret, Love Them Anyway, and When I Loved Myself Enough. I subscribe to More, Angels on Earth, Mysterious Ways, Law of Attraction and Oprah Magazine. I share my home with two five-year-old special felines. I love dogs, too, just can't have them in my condo!

My Top Interests:
Religion and Spirituality
I'm into Spirituality, not religion - and read and attend workshops a great deal in this area - angelic and other mystical experiences, NDE's, Law of Attraction, etc.
Inspirational or mystical movies, dramas, true life experiences, comedies, a great action film if there's a lot of comic relief integrated, and more!
I love to travel, especially cruises and weekend getaways!
