I like to travel and have a few destinations I look forward to discovering (Hawaii - I've never been!, Australia, southern Europe, Vietnam, Brazil, South Africa...). I've been to places such as Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, France, Ireland, Mexico. I also enjoy staying in with a movie night, dinner, and wine. I care about atmosphere and will light candles at home because it's relaxing after a day of work (just a couple, not a candle-freak show or anything). Because I prefer a low-key environment to crowded, loud, madness, I'm a dive bar, quiet restaurant kind of girl. It really helps conversation to not have to scream at the person next to you.
I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl who sometimes likes to wear dresses. I exercise via Pilates and walking/running/biking. I love to get in a pool and I do a mean doggie paddle which will knock your socks off with laughter or annoyance. Okay, maybe you can show me how to swim properly?
I love black and white portrait photography, especially the likes of August Sander, Edward Steichen and the recently discovered Vivian Maier (amazing story). I also like good music and live shows. I prefer punk, post-punk, alternative... most anything along those lines if it's well done. I also love old jazz and like most other kinds of music with the exception of club music.
I believe a solid relationship is based on good communication, honesty, trust, kindness, similar goals and interests, laughs, and spiritual and physical chemistry.
I like smart, kind guys who think independently. I'm looking for a man who is looking to make a new friend or to be involved in something more.
