In A Nutshell
I have so much to be grateful for and rarely don’t have a smile on my face. I have a wonderful job that combines scientific research (solving puzzles- probably why I also like video games!) with teaching and helping students realize their dreams too. I love animals and have two dogs (an ancient cocker spaniel and a younger cocker spaniel) and two horses. I am passionate about riding, and am teaching my young Andalusian the art of dressage, which does take up a great deal of my spare time but keeps me very fit. I enjoy watching and participating in many sports (love college basketball and football- Go Terps!), action-adventure movies, dancing (especially swing dancing), vacationing in the Caribbean, and taking walks in the forest. Very much dislike stress, drama, and anything or anyone who deliberately lies or misleads people- the ends do not justify the means. I have only had one, long, virtually wonderful relationship that came to a sad, unexpected end some time ago. I am open to the possibility that somewhere, there is someone who will add another dimension to what really is a wonderful life.
The One I Am Looking For
I am looking for someone who understands that building a truly wonderful relationship takes time. Time to get to know the other person and see if there really is an emotional connection. I am old fashioned, and really believe in being friends first. I am looking for someone who is also happy with their life and excited about the future. Someone who is a professional, financially secure, and at least reasonably stress-free. Must also be politically on the left, love animals, and believes in helping others.
I'd Just Like to Add
The pictures are all very recent. I look and act much younger than I am. I would rather run than walk and would rather swim than run, but most of all, would rather gallop my horse up the side of a mountain with eagles flying over head than just about anything. Looking for someone to share the adventure!
