I have green eyes, curly brown hair, and curves in all the right places. I have amazing friends, a wonderful family, a great job, a big friendly dog (Goldendoodle), and a delightful horse (think a gigantic Black Lab you can ride). I have a complete command of humour -- rather than just the usual "sense" of it. I am an expert in mambo, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.
Raised three stepkids (in a former life), so I'm pretty familiar with the art of parenting *and* dealing with someone's ex-wife. Amicable, civilized divorce 10 years ago, so there's no axe-wielding ex lurking about in the background. I prefer someone who has learned and moved on from his last relationship, and who doesn't froth at the mouth at the mere thought of his ex.
Movies: An American in Paris, Singin' in the Rain, Lawrence of Arabia, Local Hero, Strictly Ballroom, The Black Stallion (first half), Seabiscuit, The Princess Bride, The Castle, Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Time Bandits, The Joy Luck Club, Raising Arizona, When Harry met Sally, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, Men in Black.
Music: pretty much everything from Gregorian chants to Jazz (except really acid or experimental jazz, which makes me want to smack someone), rock (not death metal, see "acid jazz", above), Latin, and anything that makes me want to dance (this leaves the field wide open since I waltz, foxtrot, quickstep, swing, jive, tango, mambo, salsa, rumba, cha-cha, merengue, etc.).
Food: pretty much everything except beef, pork, or okra (the first two make my stomach unhappy, and the third makes me unhappy). Asian, authentic Mexican, Greek, French probably top the list. I love to cook (and I'm pretty darn good at it!), so I try to order something I wouldn't make at home when I eat out.
Close friends and family
A fulfilling career/life's work = making a difference in the world
Travelling: experiencing new places, cultures, cuisine
Dogs and horses (well, all animals, really)
The Great Outdoors: forests, mountains, lakes and oceans
The Arts: especially music, theatre, and dance
A great book on my bedside table
