I enjoy many activities such as hiking, photography, skiing, dancing, cooking, and sailing. Favorite travel adventures so far have been India, Nepal, Alaska, Italy, England, Scotland and the Rocky Mountains. I try to live my life with passion and integrity, thankful for the gift of each day, watching in amazement of the beauty and perfection of the earth and the great potential of human kind.
I am a WYSIWYG person. (What you see is what you get). Straightforward and honest – a hopeless romantic. Whether I like you or not, there will be no question in your mind. No game playing here. No drama. Not to say there isn’t mystery. It is fun to discover more as we get to know each other.
Although on this new fashioned adventure, I am at heart an old fashioned girl. I want you to take the time to romance, to focus on me when you are with me, to show your interest in small and thoughtful ways. This does not mean I expect a grand gesture or huge commitment, only a commitment to respect each other when we are together. It should go without saying for those in my age group, but please do not have any tattoos or piercings.
I have a fulfilling life with love, family, friends, laughter, my own business, and many adventures. It would be wonderful to find someone to complement and enhance my life with your own style. You need not be serious or ready for that elusive (delusive??!) love of your life, but should be passionate about life, loyal, a gentleman, honest, kind, affectionate, and compassionate. You strive for balance between career, family, friends and fun. Where ever you are, you are in the moment. You have a deep respect for our earth and all its creatures. You evaluate decisions based on your life goals and core values. Together, we should have VAVOOM.
Favorite dates definitely involve returning home wet and/or muddy. I like activity based dates as I tend to be shy in person until I get to know someone. Authenticity is important to me. I don't like the pretense that seems to go with the traditional first date. Slightly less messy activities can involve the opera, theater, museums, classical music. I love outdoor concerts and plays. A ballroom is preferable to a nightclub.
I am not an online chatter. I would much rather meet you in person to know if there is chemistry. That said, a good writer and quick wit will capture my attention.
