My self-summary
Adventurous & affectionate intellectual with no expectations other than to meet those who feel we might be compatible and explore it enough to see if it can turn into a deep friendship and romance. I'm interested in learning all you would like me to know. I want deep, smoldering passion, (and I do mean passion, like wild infatuation, not simply a hookup) from all the way deep in your soul, the kind that makes you re-think your past. But this relationship would go far deeper than the ordinary, to become a mind/body/spirit connection.

Bring all your history, baggage & drama; I have no fear of real life, and we learn from our failures even more than our successes.

"Single Librans are after your mind – yes, in love they will seek partners who can educate, enthrall and entertain them. It is not simply affection they are after; they want someone they admire and respect intellectually – new romances without that element will fail" So accurate...I'm looking for a best friend, equal partner, someone I can really admire & respect, and have an expectation that this will be the last search.

I love men with youthful, robust personalities, and even more so those who are well-travelled, through the world and through life. I love explorers/adventurers, for sure. I'm seeking a best friend who is as tactile, affectionate, kind and upbeat as I am, someone who has courage, intact integrity, and open to new adventures. I love tall, intelligent, well-educated men. Do we sound like a potential match?

My personality is happy and lighthearted, always optimistic, and thankful for a pretty awesome life, but I'm not a frivolous personality. I put a premium on stability and consistency. Some of the absolute simplest things bring me joy, from smelling the salt air of the ocean, getting a great parking spot, brilliant stars in a crystal clear night sky, or an unexpected message that seems to once again start the wheels of Life turning in unexpected new directions.

I am definitely a good partner, as I believe nearly everything is richer, deeper, and more rewarding when shared. My best relationships have been with first-borns, so if you share that place, let's talk.

I'm very fortunate to be able to dictate what hours and how much I need to devote to work, something usually only retirees get to do. I live a very balanced mix of work and free time, with the balance tilted to favor free time. I'm able to live and work anywhere in the world with an internet and phone connection. I don't believe I'll ever again live further south than I do now and I'm open to moving, including Europe, especially Paris. I'm free to create my future, which would obviously be influenced/decided by whomever I'm partnered with.

I'm open to trying just about anything you love to do, and enjoy being physically active. I love to read, enjoy a complex mind, long, great conversations, and live, absolutely live, to be exposed to new concepts, activities, and just about anything the Forces of the Universe send to me...which I suppose is a way of saying that I'm very adaptable. I enjoy catching a movie, the theatre, dinners in serene and interesting restaurants, wandering through the streets absorbing all the beauty and energy of the buildings and old houses. I'll jump out of planes with you, learn fencing, play golf, even mini golf! :-) But I am definitely very feminine. I can straddle most lines pretty successfully.
What I’m doing with my life
Being an adventurer...exploring...helping others develop a higher quality of life.
I’m really good at
Solving issues...loving openly and wholeheartedly...being very straighforward
The first things people usually notice about me
More than once, complete strangers have said I seem very approachable during very brief conversations; I like to engage people...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and learn, to be exposed to new information and thoughts...Time, Newsweek, several other magazines, the daily paper(s), online headlines and news; I'm not at all a news junkie, just like to have a good basic idea of what is occurring in the world and like to stay informed.......you get the idea...Favorite all time book: Rules of Perspective. Could make a grown man cry...check it out...and I have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of books waiting for a huge bookshelf to contain them...

Movies: Silver Linings Playbook, To Kill a Mockingbird, 12 Angry Men, The Others..I never watch scary, but this was a mind-bender...so loved it! I always enjoy comedies, but not ridiculous slapstick types.

I watch very little tv, but enjoy anything interesting like documentaries, science, history...I enjoy comedies: The Office, Parks and Recreation, SNL. I also enjoy historical fiction and drama...not into sci-fi or scary at all...
The six things I could never do without
Love, my best friend/mate, my children, books, crystal clear water on a sweltering summer day, passion: about life, about something, anything, because without passion there is little purpose in life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Not much, to be honest. I am very laid back, relaxed, and don't really worry about anything. It all just kind of flows in life, actually.
On a typical Friday night I am
...ready to go somewhere, do something, anything...make dinner at home, rent a movie, go out exploring.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love a well-dressed man, it's an absolute turn-on. That's why guys in uniforms get all the women; it's not the guy, it's something about the clothes...lol
You should message me if
Only the most confident and secure men will be compelled to contact me...that's the way I want it to be...

And...you are capable of loving deeply and passionately, want a best friend/lover/mate that you could count on until the end of time, are intelligent and can talk about a wide array of topics, and want the same in a mate.
