Fun-loving a little on the shy side kind of woman seeks a kind, honest and intellectual gentleman who is serious about what he seeks in a relationship. I have found relationships are often misunderstood to be a simple commitment between two people; a dedication to each other with a sense of belonging to one another. That kind of limited perspective breeds expectations, possessiveness, disappointment and reeks of ownership, greed, ignorance and selfish desire. I feel a relationship is a vow to encourage each other's dedication, devotion and path free from attachment or expectations (yet full of caring and compassion) based on unconditional love, not the need to possess.
I enjoy traveling, cookouts, cooking, dining out, sporting events, walks along the lakefront, museums, plays, listening to music, card/board games, pool, technology, conversing about current events and quiet time alone with my special one.
