You'll learn that I'm much more than I appear and younger in many ways than what my drivers license would lead you to believe – I blame genetics, and how I live my life. I'm strong but I'm not a fighter, unless it's something worthy of fighting for. I have opinions, but I'm not opinionated. I have intelligence, but you'll probably only see it when you need it. I am honest to the point of being frank, so you'll never have to guess what's on my mind, but this will always be a discussion between two with compassion. I wear my heart on my sleeve... it's a big one and it beats strongly!
I want to walk the beach with you, hold your hand, cook our meals together, sit under the stars and make our own music, cuddle by the fire with a glass of wine in the fall, spend time with our family and laughing with friends. Toss in tons of outdoor sports and activities, travelling, staying fit and healthy, cottaging, theatre, concerts, dancing, dining, and you've just begun to scratch the surface on who I am.
I have two brilliant, beautiful, smart and sensitive children, that are my life and are with me half of the time. Along with their mother we do a marvellous job of co-parenting, and maintain an involved and communicative relationship. My kids will be my number one priority for many years, if not forever, but if you are the right one for me I know they'll gladly share me with you. If you have kids, I know you understand.
I previously had listed a few fairly specific qualities I'm trying to find in a partner... most were common sense type of things, and all were written with a sense of humour. Sadly too many got their knickers in a knot over it, so let's try this one...
...have a great sense of humour
...like to travel (near and far)
...appreciate the arts
...revel in always being treated like a lady (except for when you want to revel in being treated another way ;) )
...prefer a beach to a pool
...can balance your cheque book (who writes cheques any more?!)
...live in the present
...not drown while swimming
...have broad musical tastes
...enjoy doing most things while also taking occasional pleasure in doing absolutely nothing
...hopefully accept that I'm not perfect at everything but will love what I am perfect at...
...then I think I'd like to meet you.
