I'm high energy, with a sharp mind and a quick wit. I'm definitely a city girl, but have vivid memories of a Montana vacation with much quiet, clear air, big trees, hiking and horse back riding (ok, it wasn't a corral but I was supervised). I love to travel when I can, and Paris, Montreal and Quebec City are favorites. I enjoy fashion and would enjoy a man who likes that about a woman. I'm self-sufficient and you should be too. I'm totally loyal and supportive of those who earn my loyalty. A spontaneous change in plans usually appeals to me, but I'm not impulsive. I try to be kind to all around me. As a Federal government employee involved in international issues, this night owl has reluctantly adapted to a day life. Iced tea is my beverage of choice most days.
I don't have a favorite sport; I've tried quite few and would happily tackle another. My most recent is team rowing and I'm considering indoor tennis lessons this winter. I'm totally willing to go with you to your favorite game or match as long as you don't expect me to know exactly what's going on and you'll buy me a beer!
Menus and recipes are favorite reading material, especially if they are seasoned with a good bottle of wine.
I've renovated several residences and still enjoy doing it, particularly the planning stage and the decorative flourishes at the end. But I'm tired of doing it by myself and would love a partner who has a green thumb or is an artist with a tape measure and saw.
No one with common sense puts it all out there, and I certainly haven't in this profile or in my responses to the fun, edgy and certainly revealing okcupid Q&As. I like men who consider themselves risk takers, and who take calculated risks.
I know we're both busy at this time of year, but if you've read this far and you curiosity is piqued, drop me a quick line!
