A little about me...
I'm affectionate, attractive, caring, giving, sophisticated but not uppity, well-educated in the arts, well-grounded, & well-informed. "Graduated" from federal service for academia, where I taught for 18 years; continue to be active in creative endeavors, especially art-making, gardening & writing.
Appearance-wise, I'm petite (5'1", 102 lbs.) & slim (size 2), with brown hair & brown eyes. (Although something of a "sprite", I much prefer to date a tall man.)
About the one I'm looking for...
I seek a long-term relationship with a gentleman who is active & fit, & have sadly found that many men my own age generally cannot keep up with me in most of the ways that count. He should also be emotionally mature, romantic, stable, interested in current events & world affairs, in other people, the simple as well as the complex things in life, & in personal achievement.
Please be tall, a non-smoker, open to new experiences, well-educated, & accepting of my healthy lifestyle & my mid-sized, affectionate dog.
Please also accept that I am not interested in being merely your weekend or occasional sleepover, nor will I "...meet [you] in Vegas". Again, I will not date a smoker. Thanks for understanding!
Also know that I am a bleeding-heart liberal but can and do deal with conservative, but not radical tea-party, political leanings. Religion is not necessarily an issue, but I do seek a man who believes in God and who shares my values of ethics and morality.
I'd just like to add...
My many interests include art & art-making, cooking, gallery-visiting, gardening, geology (as a watercolour landscape painter I refer to myself as a "landscape geologist") & astrogeology, hiking & climbing, history - both current & ancient, movies, museum-visiting, music - everything from classical & pop to rock-&-roll, physical fitness, reading - especially English & Native-American literature, & travel- especially adventure travel. Also enjoy watching professional sports, including baseball, basketball, football, ice hockey & tennis. And, thanks for staying with me through all this!
