I'm a glass-half-full kind of girl. I'm eternally curious and prefer the same in a partner; although it is more interesting, if he is interested in different things and can teach me about them. I prefer people, who roll easily with the punches, can laugh at themselves & are considerate of others. I love chivalry and old-world manners. I abhor drama in my personal life, but love complexity in my food/wine/scotch/entertainment/work. I love the Monty Python type of humor.
I will definitely make calories available for trying new foods/drinks everywhere I travel. I exercise, so that I can indulge. I've visited lot of places, (30+ countries) and try a new one each year. I like to balance outdoor activities with food/drink/urban explorations. I would love to share my passion for travel/food/skiing with my significant other. I went hiking on my last short vacation (5 days in Zion/Bryce/Cedar Breaks/Vegas (but only because I had to fly through Vegas)). I find the outdoors to be increasingly rejuvenating, as I age. I'm planning the next big trip ... maybe Iceland, Alaska, or Scotland/Ireland. I'm more of a day hike (<18 mi) than a backpacking type. I hope to take my nieces anywhere they want to go, after they turn 13.
I like thought-provoking forms of artistic expression. I prefer sci-fi or fiction with a technology or science bent, sometimes supernatural. I need quiet time to recharge, but have more friends/family globally than I can keep up with. I love dancing, salsa and the jumping up and down kind.
I try to live like the song, "I Hope You Dance" and the poem Instantes, except for the religious parts.
As much as I would love to meet the one I'm going to spend the rest of my life with, I am happy to have fun and see where it goes. I'm open to being a step-mom, mom, or not. I love children and am learning not to spoil my nieces.
