About Me Genuine, honest, thoughtful, loyal, caring, strong-minded, health-conscious vegan with an intellectual and activist streak, dog-lover, interested in animal welfare, ecology, healthy lifestyle, sustainable living, psychology, sociology, photography, film, theater.

Though sometimes extroverted and outgoing on the outside, I am really an introvert, I enjoy 121 conversations of substance (I suck at small talk), I like to spend time reading, hiking with my dogs, watching movies or just watching the sunset on a sunny fall day.
INXJ on the MBTI.

I love the sound of sea waves on a beach, the squawking of seagulls and the sound of fire crackling or the sound of rain on a roof as well as the smell of blossoming lime trees.
A rainbow always brings a smile to my face as do my dogs with every wag of their tails... there're so many everyday things we don't appreciate enough in life. It goes for human relationships too, we take the small important things for granted and leave them unnoticed and often express (and accept) love in empty grand gestures instead.

I am a loyal friend, perceptive, blunt talking, straight shooting , strong-minded, opinionated, passionate. It takes a while for me to open up but once I do, I am warm and affectionate.
I value integrity, sincerity, thoughtfulness , dependability and offer the same.
I am down-to-earth and intense yet I know how to enjoy and appreciate the simple things in life, I like to have a good laugh, I have sense of humor and like getting to know new things.
I don't take relationships of any kind lightly. I need to get to know the other person, dig under the surface for substance and character.

I generally divide my spare time between animal welfare work, hiking and reading or watching movies. I love taking a good long hike with my dogs or go for a swim after a long day of work, sometimes a good book, movie (mainly documentaries and independent movies, though I've seen Robocop as well :)), or a good theater play does the trick.

I am a believer in animal and human rights and had been an ethical vegetarian for 16 years and vegan for the past 3 yrs.
I firmly believe that awareness and education are key to tolerance and personal development and I'm quite passionate about giving back and making a difference.

I've volunteered in animal and homeless shelters since high-school. For over 5 years now, I've been running my own dog rescue in my spare time (I have a full time management job). Besides providing shelter to dogs, we run eductional programs for elementary school kids and provide work opportunities for the homeless.
I'm also involved in vegan-related activities (helping out at vegan events, mentoring vegan newbies, translations).

Dogs, volunteering and (moderate) activism are a big part of my life and areas which take up most of my spare time and I'm not looking to change that.

What I'm drawn to in people: kindness, empathy, compassion, sensitivity, dependability, firm character and principles, an open mind and inner gentleness, perceptive mind, social awareness, activist leanings.
oh, and whaterver type of the relationship, a dog lover is a MUST :)
