Women are a mystery to me. And I wouldn't have it any other way. I want to go deep with someone. To show up and speak authentically even if it feels uncomfortable. To keep in mind practical compatibilities. I want to meet someone that knows herself. Because it keeps the polarity, and makes things interesting.
In many ways I am pragmatic - I'm a CPA and have an accounting business here in Oakland. I like thinking about processes, and how to simplify things. I get excited when bank accounts tie out exactly and are reconciled :) At the same time I can only do it about 30 hours/week. The rest of the time is bike riding, hiking, rock climbing gym.. I'll also take you dancing or go to yoga. Actually I went deep into kundalini yoga and got the teaching certificate, but decided it wasn't for me in the end.
I grew up around happy, well-dressed, well-adjusted, visibly abundant people in Los Angeles. Although it was a great childhood, the last 5-6 years has been more about exploration. Attempting to get out of the metropolitan life. Fun times at the sacramento river headwaters, biking in Portland, at a hippy yoga festival getting high off life (and doing it sober!). When I think about where to have kids, I imagine hanging at the Sebastopol farmers market, rather than dragging them around a big city trying to find parking at the whole foods. So here I am wanting a partner, awaiting to make it far enough to get past the 'wondering if our parts align' questions, to really get into the fun stuff.
So let's walk around Oakland and get a coffee or tea. Worst case is that we meet someone we're attracted to but don't connect. The upside, who knows ..
