I'm intelligent and believe strongly in life-long learning. I'm always trying to learn something new. I enjoy the intellectual stimulation of a good debate... physical chemistry is important to me, but so is intellectual chemistry. I like to be challenged, engaged, stretched… I tend to find intelligent men sexy. I also seem to be drawn to accents. I have a great career but it's not my life, and I make a conscious effort to ensure I make time for friends and family. My kids are pretty much grown now, so I also have time for someone special in my life. Are you at the same stage in life? Ready for something special?
I love the outdoors; camping, gardening, hiking, music festivals, canoeing... I'm not a winter person, although I can be talked into some outdoor activities if it's not bitterly cold. I would much rather be at a beach or in the hot tub at the ski lodge though, or in front of a fire with a glass of wine.
I also love dressing up for nights out on the town; wine, dinner, theatre, concerts... Dressing up for nights in is good too :-)
I know how to golf (poorly), shoot pool, read a river, drive a standard, and even throw horseshoes, although I haven't done that in a few years. I can refinish and upholster furniture & am a pretty good cook. I love entertaining, and my house is full of love and laughter. It's also full of 4-legged things - a kitten, a cat, and a 136 pound dog. If you have allergies I'm probably not the girl for you.
Ultimately I'm hoping to find a partner...a connection with some depth. I'm not interested in one-nighters, players or serial dating. Hoping to find someone who like me can't wait to delete their profile! I hear some people get addicted to the on-line thing, always looking for something better. That's not me, and hopefully isn't you either. Intelligent, authentic, compassionate...that's us! lol
If you think we may be a match, drop me a line.
I would love to say my intelligence and wit, and maybe that's the case in certain situations. I'm not going to hold my breath on that one though. I'm more Marilyn Monroe than Twiggy, and the curves are hard to miss.
I'm told I have great legs, which is probably due to the fact that I wear heels often. And yes, I can run in heels if I need to.
My eyes - hazel and expressive. They turn mainly green when I'm very angry or excited. Some people love when my eyes turn green. Others not so much. Lol.
I like most music....Leonard Cohen, NIN, Bedouin Soundclash, Dylan, Marley, Streetlight Manifesto, Don't Climb the Pyramids, Manson, Violent Femmes, Supertramp, Reel Big Fish, Tea Party, Coltrane, Lou Dog, Ella Fitzgerald, the Kinks, the Dead Kennedys, Lana Del Ray... you get the picture. I like alternative, rock, blues, punk, ska and jazz...classical if I'm in the right mood. Pretty much anything except "twangy" country I can handle.
Shows - I got rid of satellite TV so I only have Netflix now. I really don't watch much TV until winter anyway. I like edgy shows - Breaking Bad, The Misfits, Californication, Dexter, Rescue Me, Nip Tuck (I would love to find some oldies like Picket Fences or St Elsewhere)... and comedies like Modern Family and Arrested Development. I'm all over the map with books; same with movies. I'm partial to psychological thrillers for both, although my favourite movie is still Baraka and I do like documentaries.
Books - I finally completed my Master's degree after years of part time study, so have a stack of non-academic books that I've been waiting to read.
Only 6 is a silly rule.
Your message shows that you may have read my profile. I do try to respond to all thoughtful messages, but if you're just sending a "hi" or "you're sexy" you probably won't get a response.
