PROFESSIONAL, ACCOMPLISHED WOMAN— artistic, tall, lithe and athletic beauty, early 40s (looks much younger) — seeking a kind, international man of substance with an irreverent and adventuresome bent. Location and age are less important than great chemistry.

REALLY PRETTY, SMART, CEO — athletic, trim, divorced with ever-present dash of self-deprecating humor. Gracious, irreverent, fun, hot ticket. Southerner transplanted to New England, international in outlook both in vocation and avocation. Easygoing travel companion, true explorer's spirit, be it exploring around the corner or the world. Passions include: lazy afternoons on my dock in Maine; cooking fresh, delicious meals; photography; sailing; literature; Kendall Square movies; Italian hill towns; improving rusty French; The Economist; Peru; Fore Street Café and my Boston version of the Mediterranean pace of life. No big resorts, just wonderful hotels or a touch of old-world decadence, remote villages, city buzz, authenticity. Would love to meet co-adventurer — bright, successful, cosmopolitan, man 49–65. 617-212-7046.

ARTIST AND OUTDOOR ADVENTURER: Graceful, natural athlete, 49. Leggy slim figure, chestnut hair. Mischievous and genuine with whimsical humor. Keeps body and spirit in shape. Loves the challenge of the elements: whitewater canoeing, downhill skiing, sailing, hiking, breathtaking views. Very creative but sadly no green thumb — buys plants and apologizes to them. Warm-hearted and playful with passion for photography, ceramics, architecture, Maine, Japan (lived there for 3 years), spur-of-the-moment fun, the environment. Authentic, game, fair-minded. Contributes to the community, sits on Boards. Spunky improvisational cook. Seeks kind, hearty, comfortable with himself, worldly, financially/intellectually competent, man 45–57 — mature yet young at heart. 617-816-1028. (prefers phone but e-mail OK.) — For people who enjoy the finer things in life.
