I'm laid back, affectionate, loyal and all the good stuff. I've been single for quite awhile by choice and lately been missing having something stable. The calender might say 54 years of age but I have a young mindset and hope you do too.
My likes include a secret fondness for trashy arty reality tv shows like Top Chef and Project Runway but they really are not trashy. How bout superbly intense and long drawn out conversations, overindulging in cheap wine, good and bad art, perusing in bookstores for hours on end, good night calls, indie film, goofing around in the rain or sun, hanging out at a favorite bar, sleeping in on my days off, and convincing people how much fun it is to learn something new.
Love to attend concerts in our amazing Seattle music venues. Some recent shows I have seen include Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Prince, Foals and The Black Angels.
You? Must be able to have an intelligent conversation, and to make me laugh. If you can do both simultaneously, that's all the better. I'm a sucker for educated guys with an artistic/music side, because that's what I am (except I'm a woman, of course).
Me? I'm HWP, and I use my gym membership in case your wondering.
I'm not looking for a hook-up or "casual"; I'd like to find a real relationship. I believe that you have a better chance of getting what you want if you have the courage to ask for it.
Physical attraction is essential but I also need to connect with my head and my heart. Personality, good manners, book smarts and charm are crucial. I don't have a million requirements, but I'm a woman so I have a few such as no players, no married, no bored single guys in attached relationships, no felons, no stds preferred, no big egos, and no games. Last but not least you must be employed because I won't support a man and I sure don't expect or want you to support me. I have no drama in my life because of these requirements...
My pleasures are biking, (738 miles logged in 2012), traveling, reading, the arts which includes indie film, books, good conversation, photography, architecture, literature, music (indie local), and chocolate.
