Hi- welcome to my profile. If I could I’d offer you a virtual appetizer, something delicious and healthy too. Here’s a little about me: I’m the sort of person who will wake my man up at 2am so he can hear the owls outside (and of course I would accept the consequences). I adore reading, the beach especially at sunset or sunrise when the surf is pink, casual dinners with friends, unusual miniseries on Netflix, being awed by the nature-drama that goes on in my tiny gardens, learning bits of other languages (right now, Russian), and the sweet sound of my 3-year-old nephew whispering to me as he falls asleep in my arms. One of my favorite topics to learn about is WWII, especially submarines, and I like watching Youtube hair-and-makeup videos, dance tutorials, or mind-body connection webcasts while I’m making dinner. Fitness is important to me, not just for health but also as a way to tempt my guy’s appetite. I take latin dance lessons and do yoga to unyogalike music (song-lust happens with equal passion for anything from a Chopin nocturne to something random on the radio, like this addictive song I found called “Tek Weh Yuh Heart”). I enjoy being introduced to new ideas and experiences, and creative artistic projects fulfill me the most, especially when I’m working on something that can enhance someone’s life even in a small way. My most recent ones were publishing a book, and receiving my massage license. I also overuse parentheses but I can’t help it - I really love them.
I’m hoping to meet a traditional man with strength, loyalty, a sense of humor, and warmth. His life is evidence of his voracious mind, healthy body, and tolerance for his own and other people’s limitations, which makes him kind even when he might rather just get on with things. He’s protective of his woman even when she accidentally possibly aggravates him a tiny bit, for example by taking too long to get ready, which practically never happens but I mean just hypothetically. He guards his personal time from too much intrusion. He likes his girl to be loyal and receptive to him, sensual, inspired and inspirational, totally ok with being more emotionally expressive than he is, and cultivated in her own way, with natural curiosity, strokable hair and skin, and refined standards that enable her to fully appreciate him. To me this isn’t sexist – it’s a man and a woman being different and bringing their best selves to each other. If you come home from work in a sketchy mood, I’ll try to sense what you might need – a kiss, soft silence, a butane-lighter-toasted marshmallow, an elegant cussword, a shoulder massage, a challenge, a fresh basil leaf with a drop of olive oil on it, a few minutes of the news, or a few minutes of watching me pirouette in a pair of new shoes and maybe my glasses. And if I’m the one out of sorts, the situation would be different. We won’t always agree on things or have all the same interests, but that keeps life spicy and interesting. Other beautiful things would be sharing simple pleasures like fresh gourmet coffee and watching a woodburning fire, or a storm coming over the shore, or a fun TV show together after having been apart for a while, taking a trip to somewhere unpredictable, knowing how to give and receive an apology, making each other laugh, and basking in each other's scent, because that’s part of what makes us want to be closer to each other than to anyone else.
