My mantra is “I will go anywhere with anybody to do anything”---of course you have to take that with a grain of salt. What it really means is, I am willing to try almost anything once, especially with a person I care about.
I am a problem solver and can deal with almost anything but negativity. I refuse to be unhappy any longer than I need to be (everyone has bad days).
Spending time alone is not a problem for me, in fact I need it, but I love to share beautiful days and nights with someone special in my life.
I am very much the sun worshipper ---that is not to mean that I lie in the sun, but that I appreciate the warmth and beauty of the outdoors and spend as much time as I can in that atmosphere even if it is just reading a book.
Traveling is something I am trying to do more of. I like having something to look forward to. My biggest adventure was fulfilling a life-long dream of going to Africa. For three months I spent most of my time in the Kibera slum in Nairobi---a story in itself.
Dinner parties are a favorite of mine---experimenting on my long-suffering friends and family with new recipes, sometimes to everyone’s amusement (I remember burnt potato mustaches)! They are usually pretty happy by dessert---or maybe because they had too much wine!
Planning and researching activities is a specialty of mine but am always up for spontaneity when it presents itself. Of course, you can never replace the quiet dinner on the deck and a movie in the family room---dug in for the evening with a person who loves to smile.
My forthright personality may sometimes turn people off, but you will always know where you stand with me and can count on an honest answer if asked a question.
If you are comfortable with the above and feel we are a good match, contact me so we can get to know each other.
