I am also very dedicated to my career...maybe too much so, but what I teach and the desire for my students to learn is a passion that keeps me constantly learning myself by seeking out and experimenting with new methods of teaching. I do love to travel and explore new places and plan to do a lot more in the near future.
As for what I seek:
My perfect man is strong...physically and emotionally...he is kind to others, but tough and aggressive when need be. He is intelligent and successful in his field. He is passionate and compassionate...sees life as having boundless opportunities...glass half full...optimistic...a good listener....likes to laugh...an infectious personality that puts others at ease. He is family oriented and loves sports...either playing or watching...loves the ocean as much as I do. We share many of the same interests, but appreciate and respect our differences. Someone who is my island to come home to at the end of the day and recharge before facing the world again...as I will be the same for him. A closeness of souls without having to be with each other 24/7.
Guess I want to fall in love like I have never before...totally giving myself to one man, but not be smothered...allow each other to grow as individuals and encourage each other to follow our dreams....
I am not looking for a casual hookup or a FWB...been there, done that and over it. Looking to find that love I can imagine, feel but never experienced...someone I can't imagine living without and it goes way beyond the sex...although that would have a big role, but someone who is my best friend...someone who I trust with anything and everything, knowing he would never betray me, but always be there for me when I really need him. Guess I'm a bit unconventional...Spend as much time as possible together but not have to be together 24/7. I'm very independent and have a life I love so am looking to take things slowly. I want something strong and lasting...a man who I want to happily grow old with...not just exist with...if I am just existing then it's not worth it because I'm dead inside.
