My self-summary
I'm a native Texan. After undergrad, I lived in Chicago, NYC, SoCal and Miami, in that order, and moved back to TX last Summer 20 years later. I'd consider living in sunny CA or the big apple again for the right reasons. I've been blessed with great jobs that allowed me to travel - Europe (Germany, UK, Italy, Netherlands, Spain), Belize, Hawaii, PR, and neighboring Canada & Mexico. I'd like to think I'm very cultured and do love the arts. I have several degrees, value education and novel experiences. I'm pretty active and find interesting things to keep myself busy. I show my Texas pride w/a great affinity for the Spurs, Cowboys and the Longhorns - my alma mater. It seems I've put my love life on hold with a busy career and some extraordinary experiences. I've slowed down considerably to think about what I really want and I'm ready to share my life, support, honor & grow in love with that special man:)
What I’m doing with my life
I am learning to take more time for myself and the important people in my life. I pursue activities with meaning and purpose. I've been traveling to LA & NYC lately, again for work, and all over Texas to catch up with old friends and family. I'm looking forward to staying in one place soon and making important life choices to move in that direction. I've ran 3 marathons (SA, LA, Miami) and would like to consider a 4th within the year-I'm thinking something beautifully scenic like Malibu.
I’m really good at
Drawing and need to take it up again - artistry runs in the family.
Being a good friend and companion.
Attention to detail and getting things done well.
Genuinely caring for others.
Showing my emotions - it's obvious when I'm happy and sad.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sincerity, warmth and when I say ya'll to non-Texans. I get mistaken for being a lot younger and sometimes it can be to my disadvantage in certain situations.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Some chick lit but mainly biographies because I enjoy learning about one's passion to achieve their dreams no matter what the obstacle.
Movies - Victor Victoria (I regret not seeing the Broadway play when I first moved to NYC!), House Sitter (love Steve Martin & Goldie Hawn together), Regarding Henry, Sabrina, all Star Wars & Indiana Jones movies - ok, any flick with Harrison Ford whom I've had a crush on since Empire Strikes Back;)
Food - Authentic Mexican, BBQ, Asian fusion, Sushi, home-made macaroni and cheese!
Shows - Top 3 out of 14 Broadway plays - Miss Saigon, Wicked, and Lion King
Music - Country (Luke Bryan, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Jason Aldean), Coldplay, U2, Latin rock - Maná, Belanova, Camila.
The six things I could never do without
1) Faith
2) Family
3) Friends
4) Love
5) Youthful spirit
6) Helping others
I spend a lot of time thinking about
meeting my partner for life:)
On a typical Friday night I am
Movies!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can hoola hoop endlessly:)
You should message me if
You are a strong man who knows what he wants & follows through w/ honesty & integrity, very affectionate, responsible yet adventurous, kind to others, and wants to raise a loving family with me. Although I don't have children, I'd like to have my own, foster/adopt or help raise my future husband's kids if he has any. When we spend time with each other, we can simply be content in each other's presence because everything just feels right. I'm not interested in dating a lot of men or casually dating so please only write if you believe there is a match that could lead to something more;) Best wishes in finding love.
