I grew up in a very small town, so I think I'm a country girl at heart who likes open fields, the sound of running water, sunsets and mountain peaks (corny, but true). However, I've spent my entire adult life in big cities, so I also like good restaurants, art museums, and symphonies. I've also done quite a bit of international travel (mostly as a child), so new cultures, ideas, and places tend to intrigue and excite me rather than scare me away.
I used to have a section here in which I admitted that I hate dating, but I'm removing it because it seemed somewhat defeatist. It's true that expressing romantic interest is not my greatest forte, but I do enjoy meeting new people and I think I'm a good conversationalist. I can sometimes seem a bit reserved when you first meet me, but I definitely open up once a degree of familiarity and trust is established.
