I am very active, outgoing, down-to-earth, grounded, warm, loving, and affectionate and searching for a life partner with similar traits and a great sense of humor! Born and raised with Midwestern family values, I am looking forward to meeting my new best friend/confidante to share the daily rhythms of life with from the simple everyday things to planning our dreams for the future. My career is in int'l education & I enjoy working with people from all over the world as I appreciate diverse cultures and hope that my partner will be globally-minded as well!
If you are also adventurous with a multi-faceted personality and a wide range of interests, we will never get bored! Some of the things I enjoy are hiking, snorkeling (diving, if I take a refresher course), gardening, working out/yoga, art/cultural festivals, listening to live music, dancing, long walks, dining, movies, playing a game of Scrabble, traveling, or whatever piques my interest that day. I love to be introduced to new experiences!
I love exploring off the beaten path and my passport is always ready for a new stamp! I'm as comfortable backpacking in the wilderness (Havasu Falls is one of my favorites) and sitting around a campfire as attending a formal event. It doesn't matter where, as long as I'm enjoying it with the person who lights my fire!
I embrace a healthy lifestyle (non-smoker/work out/eat healthy) and have a deep connection to nature and the great outdoors.
Would love to meet a like-minded soul with emotional and intellectual depth, an even temperament, great communication skills (vital), and a positive outlook on life to travel through life's adventures with. Ideally, we would complement and bring out the best in each other while being comfortable in our own skins. I delight in living through my 5 senses and naturally gravitate to someone very sensual, affectionate, and a great snuggler!
