I am currently single only because I choose to be. Why waste your time with the wrong person when you could be with the right one? I have been told I am selective and I hope you are too. Deciding whom to commit your life to should not be taken lightly. I have been told I am fiesty but I prefer to think of it as having spirit and passion. My friends tell me I am multi-faceted. I hope they mean like a well cut diamond that sparkles in the light!
I am adventurous and spontaneous. If there is something I want to see or do you can bet I will find a way. I love to travel and experience new locations and meet new people. You can find me doing more cultural activities such as the theatre, movies, ballet, opera, concerts and fine dining. There is the occasional game of golf. I love the water so boating, fishing, hot springs and the beach are all more than acceptable. Fine dining and a glass of wine are great as are the quiet nights spent at home. I am also a fantastic cook and time spent in the kitchen with someone special makes the meal special, rather than just well-prepared.
I am a former sous chef but now I am simply what is known as a "foodie". I love to cook and enjoy exploring and indulging in different foods. I take my health and what I eat very seriously as should you. Mostly it is organic or all natural, and whenever possible it is from scratch and not a can or processed. I am human though, and I have a fondness for dessert.
Eating naturally or organic does not mean that I am a vegetarian. I do eat meat but it is limited.
For meat, I tend to eat poultry and fish. Rarely beef and never pork. I do have a mild allergy to wheat and dairy products (milk, cheese, cream, etc.) so when possible I eat alternatives or avoid it altogether. I love my vegetable juicer!
I hear repeatedly what a great catch I am and how I will make someone very happy someday. That someone might be you. Are you willing to take the chance? I am looking for the man who completes the picture. Not completes me, as I am complete on my own, but is my soulmate. I find "playing the field" to be rather disheartening. I know if I like and could be attracted to someone almost instantly after the initial contact. My entire life I have always known what I like and want. I don't waste time being involved in relationships that aren't and won't go anywhere just for the sake of being with someone. When I am involved with someone it is because I truly want to be with them and I will give 110% to the relationship. Committing to spend the rest of your life with someone should not be taken lightly and I intend to make the right decision the first time.
I am rather old fashioned and expect to not only be treated like a lady but also be courted, especially in the beginning of the relationship. Romance and chivalry are not dead! I do not have children and I prefer you to not either. If you do have children, I prefer them to be older than 12 or you to have shared custody.
You also take your health seriously so you are not overweight, smoke, are a drug user or a heavy drinker. If you don't respect your own body you will never be able to respect me.
It would be a bonus if you are an animal lover, especially dogs. You also try to make a difference in this world and are open minded to all viewpoints and beliefs.
I am 5'11" so please be about that height or taller.
This all may sound rather harsh but I am actually a very sensitive and compassionate person and you should be too. Let's not forget honest and loyal also. It is so much simpler to say what you desire and expect upfront. Good communication leads to good results. I do make exceptions to these guidelines but only for exceptional men so make sure you are exceptional before asking me to make an exception.
I thought I would give this service a shot because I know I expect a lot from the man I am with and a lot of men nowadays seem very lazy about the dating process not to mention disrespectful. I have no time or place for that in my life. Physically I tend to gravitate towards the cultured man that takes pride in his appearance. Mentally, I seek a lively intelligent rapport. Enjoyment of a deep mind-bending conversation but yet the ability to relax and have fun is a necessity.
