Passionate and smart (with a dry wit). Diplomatic by nature, yet drawn to the irreverent, humorous side of life. Creative, musical, and athletic. You might be most drawn, however, to 'other' traits we'd share: like empathy for people, and loyalty to family and friends. Love playing tennis - from fun, casual mixed doubles to tournaments... Looking forward to traveling more and exploring new cultures. Confess, I enjoy my creature comforts, like interesting, cozy boutique hotels. Camping in the wilds of the Amazon isn't on my radar. (My idea of 'roughing it' would be the 12th floor of a Hyatt - 'okay' but a bit boring and antiseptic, don't you think?) Love watching and discussing a good movie, enjoying live theatre, Sunday brunch, sipping that first (and second) morning cup of coffee, conversing about current events (opinions welcomed), playing the piano and guitar singing Beatles and Elton John, and composing my own tunes... Looking forward to sharing winter getaways with you, preferably somewhere sunny and warm! Am as comfortable wearing jeans and a shirt 'out' at a sporting event or concert, as in a jacket at the theatre. Am a surprising package: a mixture of youthful appearance, understated wisdom, and creative energy. Blessed with the genes of still active, terrific parents. Looking forward to the adventure(s) ahead. Comfortable in my own skin excited to share life with a special companion to grow 'young' with... and share the best life has to offer.
