In A Nutshell
I love 'living life' actively, not on the sidelines yet I'm not driven! I'm easy with social activities, concerts, dancing, traveling, sidewalk cafes, flying, road trips and likely I have some 'Gypsy" in me! Ive been privileged to have traveled in Europe, Australia, many beautiful beaches to scuba dive, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, great cities in the US and a favorite 'road trips’.
As much as I enjoy traveling, dining, dancing and going out ..I love being at home.
When the kids were younger and around and everyone was out I used to scream out 'Home Alone' 'Home Alone' Home Alone' (also a great movie).
My kitchen is a fun place to spend time. I like to try new recipes and I have quite a collection of cookbooks, many very unusual like.. "Wild Women in the Kitchen" and based around novels, "Like Water for Chocolate". I’m hoping there is someone in the near future that we would be enjoying it together.
Other ‘Joys of Being Home’ include a nice glass of wine, warm fire, music
(Ever wonder where our need for music comes from? It catalogs our memories.. and some..they just put us some place) a good book or movie and looking at the stars from the hot tub. More importantly.. I'm looking forward to hearing about you!
The One I Am Looking For
Qualities I admire include many of the basics like family and friendship values, honesty, responsible, good sense of humor, kind, generous, good communicator. To start these provide a good foundation which leads to caring, sharing, understanding, compassion with true intimacy and mutual valuing (is that a real word?)
Other qualities that are really nice would be.. active, not a couch potato, handy.. oh how sexy a 'tool belt' can be!, likes being outside, enjoys spending time with family and friends and values one on one as well. Phew!!! I'm really getting on a roll here!! Adventuresome, would be great and/or open to trying new, and being ok with separateness if not inclined to go along for the 'Ride" I'm probably really narrowing it down.. I am not intending to be unrealistic.. There are many nice attributes, some more important than others, key being some.. not all.
As I type, more and more is stirring in my little head… Very Important… Non-Judgemental, (does not preclude discernment) especially with race, religion and all personal choices. None of us are perfect and we are privileged to live in a country that values and respects our beliefs along with doing no harm to others. Phewwww!!
I'd Just Like to Add
I'd like to meet a special gentleman with similar interests, values and a desire to share in a meaningful relationship. Email, typing, etc. isn't really my thing.. If there is an interest I prefer a phone conversation and if desired a meeting in person.
