People who are self-described "Type-A" personalities tend to make me a bit nervous, so I'd like to think I have the ability to be high energy when necessary, but with the ability to relax and take it easy when the situation warrants.
For a night at home, I might be reading, listening to or playing music (I play piano), going to a movie, watching good TV (hard to find these days), or enjoying a good conversation over a great meal. I also enjoy the finer things in life and am a member of museums and other cultural organizations. I enjoy art, opera, the symphony and ballet, but not every day! I'm just as entertained sitting near the ocean watching birds, exploring the beach, or enjoying nature and feeling the sun on my face.
I love to travel and have been lucky enough to visit a wide range of countries. I also enjoy ethnic foods - cooking it myself or trying different restaurants. I love being outside for anything be it a boat ride, a walk or hike or exploring gardens, woods or beaches. In the winter, I do love ice-skating and cross-country skiing. A nice walk in the woods on a quiet winter day can also be lovely.
The person I would like to attract would ideally be very smart, witty and funny. I really love to laugh. A man that can cook and also make me laugh? You're golden! However, I do love to cook, so I'm happy to do the cooking anytime.
I enjoy the company of others very much and like to meet new people, so I am not specifically looking for one thing or even a particular list of things...I would love to meet someone who enjoys the art of conversation, the ocean, good food and laughter. I also admire those who are not afraid of self-reflection, and who don't take themselves too seriously.
I had years of experience in the whale research field and now have my own gardening design business. Despite all that, I'm also a nice person (and a really good cook!). I get along with everyone and have a desire to find a wonderful man who is looking for a relationship filled with laughter, respect, and true connection.
