My self-summary
Maybe my photos sum up one aspect of me best. I do like a bit of adventure. I have traveled near & far, hoping to one day live abroad.

Sailing & Spanish are my focus right now, as is my business. Surfing happens when I've got the time.

Most define me as a pretty strong woman. Not necessarily in the 'how many push ups can you do' but more in the 'I have been up against some tough stuff & it has made me the person I am' sort of way. This type of strength in my future counterpart is an absolute must!

I'm pretty relaxed about most things & go with the flow easy enough. However, when it's something that I have a strong opinion on or desire to do, I will dig in my heels. Where as there is a place for compromise, not everything that you wish to do should be changed to suit the desires of others. We all deserve 100% of what we find most important.

(((By the way, if you are holding a dead mammal in any of your profile pictures, I'm probably not for you.)))

I've been self employed for over 18 yrs. I am very dedicated to my work. It makes me super happy.

I keep my world as simple as possible. I prefer to spend my time maintaining my life w/ minimal effort required so that I may go & explore the world in which I live.

I do have a spiritual inclination. More about that in person, if you'd like.

Passion is a must! And, I'm not talking a dedicated sports fan or really, really likes ice cream. I mean a passion for life!

Oh, by the way, I am really 6' tall, & that's not while wearing heels. I'd like a guy who can at least look me in the eye. That's what I am most comfortable with.

***VERY IMPORTANT*** I am on the precipice of adventure & a sort of freedom after single handedly raising my son. Please know that as wonderful as your younger girls or boys may be, I am really done with that phase of my life. If you have kids 15ish yrs old or over, we are good!
