I'm an East coast woman with a West coast heart. I'm a self-employed consultant and am lucky enough to work in a field that leads me into tons of areas that I would never otherwise encounter while allowing me to have a flexible enough schedule that I can get out and have fun on a regular basis. I love yoga, hiking, kayaking, gardening, camping, going to the beach, biking, skiing (recently back after a 23 year hiatus), exploring the nooks and crannies of BC, and am willing to try almost anything new. I love an adventure and believe that walking around the block can be as much of one as traveling to Nepal - it's all just a matter of perspective.
I'm an avid and voracious reader, an aspiring writer, and amateur painter who loves to watch movies, see live music and theater, hang out with friends and family, travel (over two dozen countries so far), and generally yak it up. I'm also a foodie - I enjoy going out to eat as much as I enjoy cooking a gourmet meal and entertaining friends. I am loyal (many of my friends have been friends since birth), kind, funny, loving, responsible, trustworthy, dependable, generous, fun-loving, and family oriented. I'm also passionate about the things that I choose to engage in, have a love of learning that often manifests itself in the geeky way of collecting designations and letters after my name (including certified yoga teacher), and am equally happy in a crowd or hanging out chilling at home.
I love contrasts, the smell of freshly cut grass, swimming in fresh water, sleeping in the sun, strong coffee accompanied by dark chocolate, traveling in luxury and with nothing more than what I can carry on my back. I listen to CBC, all kinds of music without rhyme or reason, and can sometimes be astoundingly and humorously gullible. I'm strong and independent while loving the feeling of being feminine and taken care of.
I believe in abundance, that the world is our mirror, and that stepping through our fears is one of the best ways to grow and become the best versions of ourselves. I also believe in compassionate listening, that kindness cannot be overrated, and that we are all wonderful creatures who ultimately want love and connection.
I'm looking for someone who can dance through life with me as my lover, best friend, and partner in crime! You're positive, have a zest for life and like to experience what the world has to offer. Ideally, you're equally comfortable having an adventure or enjoying the minutiae that makes up daily life. A sense of humor is a must as is kindness and consideration.
