Friends say I'm the "real deal" -- intelligent, funny, approachable, energetic, attractive, and enthusiastic -- I agree with them! and seek similar traits in a partner.
An accomplished professional, having worked in the field of special education and educational therapy, I’m also a prize-winning visual artist, published author and poet, contributor to many charitable causes and educated female who transitions easily between thoughtful and humorous conversations.
I enjoy a wide range of cultural activities such as movies, concerts and live theater, travel, galleries, dancing and poetry readings. How about you? Sharing projects, walks on the beach, or relaxing evenings at home can also be highly satisfying.
Having done the emotional work to achieve a life of sustained happiness and fulfillment, I am not looking for someone to complete me; but still a romantic at heart, I'm open to sharing a very special and passionate relationship with you. While I could be seeking a soulmate – isn’t everyone? -- for intimacy, love, and commitment, if profound chemistry is missing between us, we can still be joyful companions for movies, hikes, discussions, or adventures -- maybe sailing to Alaska or such ... ?
The internet, though one convenient way to meet, has its limitations. I’d hope to encounter you in person right away to determine chemistry. Please, please please understand and believe that I only reply if you have a photo posted. And I’m not looking for a pen pal, even though I enjoy heartfelt and clever writing.
Although I understand the value of money, I will not be impressed by your boat, cars, or gold chains -- sorry! I seek spark rather than flash! If you are a gentleman of quality and good health, who cherishes meaningful, sustainable connection with mutual respect, alongside fun, culture, recreation, gratitude, and possibly travel, then yes, please do message me.
