I’m a little shy at first but once I feel comfortable, I warm up and soon show my quirky sense of humor. I like to think of myself as being well-rounded and able to carry on a conversation about a wide range of interesting stuff. I’m active and like to get out and do things. Oh, I’m not against staying indoors with a pizza and beer and watching a movie but I’m the kind of girl that knows what great live musician are coming to town, artsy events going on, and where the best seats are to watch Washington Capitals play. (Yep, guys, I dont mind taking in a live sporting event once in awhile).
I also enjoy dressing up and going out for a nice meal. Whether it’s sexy dress/heels and fine dining in Old Town Alexandria or jeans and grabbing a burger at a local dive bar, I’m up for anything and enjoy a wide range of cuisine.
I hope to eventually move into a smaller or more rural community when I eventually retire.
Music: music is a musT, love all types, Blues hold a special spot or any jazz with sultry voice, or rock with a strong guitar riff. Enjoy live music and often go to shows.
Food: beets, gumbo, avocados. Restaurants, Enjoy finding local favorites whatever the flavor. Handcrafted fancy-smancy cocktails although not a food, thought I would mention to see if interest is piqued.
Shows: I make it a point to take in at least one theater production a year, and occasional plays in DC. TV/CABLE really don't watch alot of TV, but have enjoyed Chopped, Storage Wars, Dives Diners and Drive-ins, Anthony Bourdain, Forensic files, House Hunters International, Discovery, History channels
Travel: It has been said that travel is healthy for mind, body and soul. Having said that, I welcome the opportunity to share new adventures with someone special. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple day weekend trip to a few Virginia wineries/hiking trails or an excursion overseas, Pack your bags, let’s go!
Sports: enjoy watching live events, hockey is fav, and football is fun when watching with friends, however i'd rather be outside on a nice fall day.
Other: activities that do not fit above boxes, R/C airplanes, gardening, hiking, ballet (i can go that alone), flea markets/antiques (fun drives if nothing else),
museums (art/air space), wolftrap in the summer, boating, dancing (on occasion), occasional movie out or in.
Overall i like getting out and enjoying life without kids, there are many places in DC/Baltimore/Charlottesville area to explore, would be nice to have partner to share.
