I seek someone who, like me, comes from a stable and loving family and wants to create one with their perfect 'match'. Someone who is kind and warm and generous and funny and has integrity. Someone who loves dogs, spending time outdoors, culture and cuisine. Someone who is passionate about work and/or hobbies, open about themselves and open to growth. Someone who is ready to meet a potential partner and has room, time and inclination in his life to make that potential partnership a priority; in terms of being both giving and allowing someone to give to you.
If you sail or want to learn, that would be especially lovely. If you enjoy making and fixing and doing things with your hands, that would also be wonderful. If you don't mind karaoke now and then, and staying in for a quiet night occasionally, we might get along. If you value fidelity, I will value you. If you agree that dogs are the best people to know, I will agree with you. If you make me laugh and I do the same for you, that's really how I'd like to spend most of our time.
I'm not 'cool' or particularly hip, but I've been called classy fairly often. I'm not hung up on fashion or appearances, and wouldn't be compatible with someone who is. However, I do try to take care of myself and, being a girl, do like pretty things and things that smell nice. I mainly wear flip-flops. I look cute in my glasses. I spend more on dog toys than salon visits, but I do enjoy a nice pedicure now and then. I have the womanly qualities of the desire to create and support community, and a nurturing nature. I have the piscean qualities of sensitivity, artistic vision and the desire to please. I have the character qualities of loyalty, empathy and a brand of selflessness that has sometimes made me vulnerable to those with less than good intentions. I'm working on that.
My father and brothers have proven to me that chivalry is not dead, and I hold the bar high in waiting for a truly good man to receive my good graces.
I am affectionate and imperfect and sincere and hope to find someone who appreciates these things about me and maybe even mirrors them. I strive to be non-judgmental whenever possible, but I know enough to recognize what's not right in the world and speak up about it.
I love to cook for and host guest(s). Love to hike and camp and travel and have adventures. Love to read and discuss. I have worked hard to be educated and build a meaningful career for myself and I admire and respect this in others. Emotional, intellectual and physical intimacy are all very important to me in a romantic (yes, romantic) relationship.
I'm looking for a stable, loving, long-term partnership with a warm and supportive man who wants to integrate our lives, and work towards a life together built on trust, respect, passion, and good humor. And dogs.
