A little about me...
Without sounding egocentric I am a rare woman: educated, cultured, grounded, self-assured, adventurous, healthy and active, spirited, realistic, experienced, thankful. I enjoy people (never met a stranger)but value alone time for cultivating passions, pampering, or working on creative projects (fine arts). I love every minute of travel, especially if it involves environmental beauty, architecture or an historical site and of course sharing that with you. I love to snow ski, bicycle, explore/hike, and am a fish in the water. I am not one to sit, but I do enjoy a good ball game, movie or performance. My best accomplishment in life is my son, age 16, who has incredible depth of character and knows what he wants to do in life. I teach art to children and enjoy being a role model to give them wings, confidence and life skills. I love a good bottle of wine, looking at the stars through a telescope, thunderstorms, a fireplace, a good novel, and above all, my family. My weaknesses: junior mints, love stories, puppies (yes, I want one but will do my research first).
About the one I'm looking for...
The man I am looking for is late 40s to mid 50s, has moved on from divorce baggage, is centered in life, has a positive attitude, is healthy and active, enjoys a variety of interests or at least is genuinely comfortable trying them, and has the desire to be a true friend and fantastic lover. It helps if you live near me, otherwise I don't think I want another long distance relationship. I love the chemistry between a man and a woman, your masculinity is fascinating to me, your ability to be a gentleman is magnetic. I have been divorced for 8 years and have had many wonderful dates, and a few great relationships with men who were emotionally absent, incapable or ready in life to make a commitment or take the relationship beyond dating (those men went on to seek 30 year olds). I am not looking for an instant love match, but I would prefer to begin a relationship with someone who can be loving unconditionally.
I'd just like to add...
I have taken good care of myself and am proud that I look and feel younger than my age. I hope to find someone who has similar aspirations (please reply only if a photo is available). I am a great catch for the right person. A diamond in the rough getting ready to shine.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
My sustenance! I love everything about the outdoors and nature...
Being active gives us the feeling of being alive! I make a consistent attempt to include fitness as an important part of my life. I do not excel in any specific activity but I'm not half bad on the ski slopes, cycling, or swimming.
Wine Tasting and Spirits
A good bottle of wine is nirvana, no wait, sharing a good bottle of wine is nirvana. Pairing it with food is an art I am tring to perfect.
