Buddhist BBW, opera & museum lover seeks similar

curvypathgirl out look com. Kind-hearted, Buddhist (I did my training in the Shambhala lineage, but spend more time at the Interdependence Project, and attend talks in all lineages), educated, "cultured," politically left. I love life and all it has to offer. I enjoy the heck out of everything I can, perhaps even more because, as a Buddhist, I also realize that nothing lasts and we can't rely on things outside our hearts to make us happy. I particularly seek and savor art, history, reading, museums, opera, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, overseas travel, great food, and great sex. Meditation and meditation retreats are important to me. I don't believe in any gods; rather, to me, my religion is about becoming more compassionate and better able to help others.

I'm a project manager/business analyst in software development. I used to be a teacher in a rough school in Chicago but the school system is such a mess that that became impossible for me to continue. But I had very positive relationships with students and want to resume working with youth in a volunteer capacity. Right now I'm planning to teach meditation in youth detention facilities, but I need more training myself for that. I've signed up to tutor in prison and am applying to become a mentor.

Looking For

Must haveIntelligence, Humor, Great skills, Empathy, Sensitivity, Wit, Thoughtfulness
Look for in a partnerSeeking someone who lives in NYC, not a long-distance thing. I want someone who is first and foremost kind, gentle, honest, and good-hearted. All ethnicities and body types welcome. I am a kind person, don't like to fight, and when I do encounter conflict, I try to stay calm and talk it out honestly. Honesty is very, very important to me, as well as the ability to identify, understand, and talk about your needs and emotions. I have a weakness for shy, sweet, geeky guys, especially software developers. I also seek a person who loves life and at least some of the things I enjoy.
On the first dateGo to a museum, dharma talk, or concert and have a good meal.
