A little about me...
I'm looking for a sophisticated, literate, and witty gentleman who'll appreciate my independence but also give me a shoulder to lean on. I have a busy and happy life, but having someone with whom to share those things which are sometimes just more fun with a guy would certainly enhance it. Call me shallow, but I love men with manners who dress well. No, that doesn't mean that you can't wear jeans and a t-shirt when it's appropriate! Ideally, he'll have a flexible schedule which would allow for spontaneous getaways, but he'd also enjoy longer trips which we've planned ahead of time. He'll be intuitive and considerate of my feelings and opinions. I hope he'll give good back rubs, too!
The things which keep me busy include water aerobics and water yoga three times a week, two bridge clubs, and two book clubs. I volunteer at our county museum and for the school district's Education Foundation Board. Family is very important to me. I don't have children, but I'm very close to my nephews and niece. They think I'm the "cool" aunt. I enjoy movies and live performance, especially theatre. I am not religious in any organized way. I feel strongly that one can be a good person without bearing the label of a denomination. .
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm looking for a man who's engaged in the world around him--someone who has his own interests but is supportive of mine and interested in finding things for us to enjoy together. Ideally, he'll enjoy traveling both in the US and abroad. He'll like trying new restaurants; going to movies, live theatre, and concerts; shopping; going to the farmer's market, whitewater rafting, and lots more. He'll be compassionate and tolerant. He'll recognize what needs to be done and do it without being asked.
I'd just like to add...
I'm an avid reader, though not a particularly discriminating one. I enjoy historical fiction (especially if it's set in the Tudor period), biography, contemporary novels, and a healthy dose of action/adventure. I love the beach in the fall.. I enjoy cooking, but, as many of you know, cooking for one isn't a lot of fun. My most recent trip outside the US was to the British Isles. I've visited England several times, but I'd love to re-visit Ireland. At this time in our lives, I think relationships can be hard work. I'd love to find someone who's worth the work!
