A little about me...
I am looking for someone in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area....as well Before I continue, if you cannot provide a photo, then please do not contact me,seriously. If you are not into the outdoors, and being able to have a weekend hiking or deciding the weather is wretched and we can cook great food, make a fire,, and watch a great movie or two, you are not my man
I love my vocation and I am devoted to it. I love great food, great wine, and entertaining.
I have been through certain changes lately that make me realize what is meaningful...I seek a person that wants and can embrace a curiosity, conversations about everything with an open mind, wants to grow and appreciates slight oddities good and bad...must be chemistry, must be intimacy,a little silly or crazy in addition to cerebral, is that asking too much? No.
About the one I'm looking for...
Sense of humor, a great laugh, a great smile and the ability to relax and enjoy the ride at times, and sometimes be completely involved in my work....
I do prefer an attractive person that stays in shape. I take great care of myself and prefer a man that does as well.
I want a man that is secure emotionally, I want someone that is great at giving and receiving in all aspects of life.
I cannot deal with children still at home or difficult past partners.
Likes to travel and wants to explore new places. Has a love of food, wine perhaps and loves to enjoy life, family. I am not religious but am spiritual in my own way. I want a man that takes care of himself and is not afraid to give of himself.
I'd just like to add...
One of the best things I really enjoy about meeting other people and a potential partner, is what we might enjoy and learn from each other. I want to expand my horizons and would like to do the same in return.
I realize every day how much of this world...experience that I have no knowledge about and I consider myself up on many genres of life, but there is so much more. I want a great journey moving forward.

My Top Interests:
Wine Tasting and Spirits
I have been in the industry for 15+ years and love the matching of food and wine. i love to cook, entertain with friends and family. I read allot about food history and it's relevance to Southern culture and life in the present. I love to visit the farmer's markets in the Triangle area but this time of year that is not so easy. I revel in life's changes. I do not like really traditional southern ways of thinking and looking at the world, except for food and writing...well maybe manners.
I take walks with my Frenchie every day. I have always been determined to stay fit and like to do so outdoors whenever possible. I love the coast and I love the mountain area of NC. I try to visit both as much as possible.
I believe an appreciation of nature and the larger world around us is essential in my well being and in my soul.
There is also nothing better than a nice chilly beer at the end of the road.
I do not always want to get up at the bright of dawn, I am a bit of a night owl.
I love poetry, fiction, plays...I always think I should read more. I write poetry myself to express thoughts that are important to me. I enjoy all of our local museums, and local music. I try as well to support the arts, and participate in numerous charitable functions during the year. I would like to be involved in more as my professional life allows.
I really love music...of just about all kinds, except HH, and Opera...I am trying to stay current always so my nephews will respect me.
