A little about me...
I am a creative, outoing person. I am currently teaching 4th Grade and developing a business in textiles. I enjoy money and the freedom it provides and would like my partner to have his own income. Money isn't the focus but it gives options. I'm a realist, not a gold digger. I work hard and believe that I can and am responsible for contributing 100% to the relationship. I would like this in return. I have a great sense of humor. I love travel and staying home for a cozy night in as well. I am an independent person but am lonely for male companionship. I have plenty of women friends and a close family so my life is full. I love to cook, write, sing, play instruments,garden, read, and would, someday, love to live by the ocean. I have about 2 years until I retire. Looking forward to adventure. I have a serious focus on my art - painting fabric and silk and designing kimonos and other wearable art. My work sells in front of the right audience and I'm looking forward to developing my skills.
About the one I'm looking for...
I want someone who has a sense of humor, isn't arrogant, values others, and is willing to see another point of view. Im looking for a long term relationship. No braggarts and no sponges.....I'm not a "nurse with a purse." I enjoy travel and adventure but I also enjoy a glass of wine, a cozy blanket, and the t.v. or a good book as well. If you are secure and comfortable in your own skin you won't be threatened by a capable woman. I do not need you to control me and the minute I experience any abuse - emotional, verbal, physical - I will be gone. Life's short. I'm looking for someone who can play, someone who can carry a conversation, act silly, and loves exploring.
I'd just like to add...
I love traveling, picnics, movies, art galleries, the mountains and the beach (my favorite). I enjoy a dinner out and I love to cook at home. I drink red wine. I enjoy animals, my family, my art, and my garden. I love sunflowers.
I don't like drama, unfair fighting, or unrealistic expectations. I don't mind conflict as that is life but I want to focus on the issues and find a solution.

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
I love to paint on fabric and then turn it into something artistic. I also paint silk scarves. I enjoy it because of the colors, creativity, and because I can lose and find myself in the process.
Nature and Outdoors
Connecting with the wind,stars, trees, and wildlife refreshes my spirit. I LOVE the ocean.
Family and Friends
There were so many interests to choose from. With Family and friends I can explore all the interests I couldn't list here. Art, Nature, friends and family, and of course God are where I center myself.
