Name: Jenny Gowen

Age: 47

Occupation: Surgical devices sales rep, undercover activist.

Identify as: I fall somewhere between L and Q.

What are you looking for in a mate? Similarities, differences. Push and pull. A straight shooter.

I’m available for the kind of connection that creates fireworks and deep calm for both of us on multiple levels: intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical. A perfectly imperfect partnership.

Biggest turn-off: Substance abuse. Disingenuousness. I work hard to keep becoming and I don’t want to be with people who are invested in staying stuck.

Biggest turn-on: Authenticity. Humility. Courage. A “still-waters-run-deep” type with a kinky private side or a bad ass with a tender underbelly. An invitation to that private side or underbelly.

Hobbies: Running, races, day trips, adventuring, lallygagging, exploring, meditation, giving back, being near water, baking, social justice, chasing fire flies, orchids, picnicking and sharing my life with people I love. I will gladly try almost anything once.

Describe your ideal first date: We find a local place to share a meal. This gives us a chance to talk and get to know more about each other. There’s an easy comfort, lots of laughter and undeniable sparks of chemistry.

Pets, kids or neither? I have a fabulous adult daughter who swings by from time to time on her way to or from her next adventure. I don’t have pets, but I love pets.

Would you date someone whose political views differ from yours? Sure, as long as their views and actions don’t involve marginalizing or oppressing other people and groups.

Celebrity crush: Nadia Bolz-Weber, Chris Mosier

One obscure fact about yourself: I grew up on a small farm on the rural Eastern Shore. I know what a chicken running around with it’s head cut off really looks like. (Bonus, though, I can chop wood, tend livestock, brew kombucha and I’m great at canning just about anything!)
