My self-summary
My picture is an accurate depiction of what you will see in person. I plan time to work on improving my overall health through exercise, good diet, and a positive outlook. I am educated and knowledgeable, but always interested in what others have to say. I love to spend time with people who have an opinion and like to share ideas and information. I am articulate and believe it is important to be open and honest about your feelings and needs. The people who I consider my real friends are people of integrity and believe in the laws of reaping and sowing and doing the most good for the most people. I respect people who say what they mean, mean what they say and keep their word.

I feel blessed and highly favored. I love life, smile easily and often, and tend to touch people when I talk to them. If I like you and we are engaged in pleasant conversation, I will probably infringe on your personal space…. Is that a bad thing? I don’t think so! :-)

You should message me if
If you are looking for a renaissance woman: creative and artistic, with a bottom-line orientation; someone who is articulate and direct, an active communicator and focused listener. A romantic who loves candlelight, a roaring fireplace, fresh flowers, bubble baths, soft music, and a quiet place to relax and share intimacies. Someone who would rather go to a spa for a warm oil massage than go camping and fishing; loves travel, dancing, movies, plays, museums, walking, exploring, reading and small dinner parties with family and close friends. Someone who enjoys life and believes an open minded approach is best when dealing with issues and people. If you are an educated professional who is confident and unafraid of emotional and physical closeness. Someone who has explored his strengths and weaknesses has a clear focus and a desire to continue to grow and achieve. You must be a strong communicator and a compassionate listener; honest and straightforward; a pre-disposition toward leadership, enjoy slow dancing, long, breathless kisses, with a GQ flare in your choice of clothing (comfortable in casual clothes and suits) and is concerned about your physical appearance and health. You must have a partnership orientation to relationships that is based on mutual respect and a belief that strong, lasting and loving relationships require first a commitment and then an investment of time and effort. You must be definitive, want to live an active life, hold yourself in high esteem and want the woman standing next to you to be a considered and deliberate choice. I only want to talk with people who have included a recent picture. I am not interested in communicating with con-men nor do I want a relationship with someone who is a prevaricator on purpose or by omission, plays games, is looking for a friend with benefits, mother, nursemaid or housekeeper.
The two of us
