I am in an intense line of work that I absolutely love and have always really been a striver in my professional and academic life. I'm realizing that although I've always been a passionately involved in my work and, at one time music and theater, I am ready to work just as diligently on having balance in my life and smelling the roses a little. I have high expectations of myself and have lots I want to continue to see and do.
I'm natural, low maintenance and approachable. I am very secure with myself, and am open to meeting new, like minded people. Interested in friendships first... no funny stuff, Gentlemen! Keep it honest and bring your A-Game (and by that I mean be your best, true, natural self). I'm way beyond the superficial, I'm more into substance. Looks and swagger are ok, but substance and personality is what I'm truly drawn to.
I enjoy the company of easy-going, smart, expressive, classy men who are uninhibited in their thinking and can help carry on the conversation.
Chemistry, for me, is everything. My parents have been married for over 40 years, and they have showed me that relationships are about friendship, commitment and loving acceptance. Confidence is really attractive to me in a man. Let's do and see things together: spend a day, read the same book, get to know each other's favorites, chat about this and that, see something new...revisit something we liked.
I'm a loyal friend who would truly appreciate meeting someone who wants to get to know me as much as I'd like to know them. Not afraid of long distance dating and looking forward to meeting interesting people.
