A little about me...
I've written a lot here in the hopes of saving us all some time. I'm the mother of an adult, a family member, a psychologist, a hard worker, a thinker (mainly about my field of work), a funny person whenever possible, and a free spirit. A few of the things I am passionate about: relating; my own & others' ways of making meaning out of life; humor, and keeping a mix of contact and solitude that suits me. Listing it like this sounds ponderous. Maybe you could think about the Marx Brothers while you read.
I have faults. Now that that's out of the way, I am warm and witty, a consummate (& modest) professional, evolved, discerning but not snobbish, disciplined out of pleasure, not rigidity; a person of integrity; fairly wise about myself and about others. My romantic relationships have been abiding and profound. I know how to bond and be monogamous without needing a lot of attention. Close to family. Passionate hiker; probably wouldn't do Everest. (Boy, when it's put in a list like that, it sounds kinda clunky.)
Passions: Relating. My own & others' ways of making meaning out of life. Some nature. Doing & learning especially in my profession. Keeping a mix of social contact and solitude that suits me.
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for a hero to win my heart, nourish my mind, and (this is the long shot) eventually overlap souls. That guy would be like other people in my life: smart in his own way, well-adapted, accomplished, honest, steady, funny, happy in his own company, appreciative, easy going, educated, unconventional in some ways, nurturing, tolerant up to a point, hard working, funny (worth repeating) and the people in his life are like that, too. Another clunky-sounding list, I know. I am not a class snob. Having said that, accomplishment -- more or less steady involvement in work that has meaning -- whether it's academics, carpentry, art, or writing -- is important. I would not be a good companion for someone who is military or ex-military. On the practical side, fitness is important, too.
I'd just like to add...
I'm smart in a relaxed kind of way. Unpretentious and funny with a mischievious streak, too. The people in my life are like this: smart, well-adapted, honest, steady, funny, happy in their own company, appreciative, easy going, usually unconventional in some ways, nurturing, tolerant up to a point, hard working, funny (worth repeating) and the people in their lives are like that, too.
