As a romanticist at heart I am looking for a woman who has also experienced the speed bumps of life and who is seeking a true relationship with someone who doesn't want to play games. Relationships are not a movie with a perfect script but they can indeed be fulfilling, if honest and natural. Laughter must come naturally and be shared in a contagious kind of way. Trying to find that without too many auditions, which are usually disappointing, is very difficult. I am looking for someone who “gets it”. We all should seek to improve ourselves if only to make our inner voices smarter and wiser. I went back to school to study things that interested me and would add to the qualities of life that I could share with my children. Changed careers 7 years ago to educational administration from a previous life of being an entrepreneur in the petroleum industry. Discovered there was more to life than materialism and ego. Spent time doing my rendition of Indiana Jones in Israel and Greece studying archaeology at a site in Hazor as well as finds in Crete. I fear that my future is not in movie stardom but at least “I done it”. Can you say that? I look forward to sharing my experiences with someone special who really wants to know. Love to travel, when I have the time, and am looking for someone who I can share the world with whether it is in a Star Bucks around the corner in my cleanest dirty shirt or Monte Carlo in a tuxedo. To borrow a clich? "life is a journey and not a destination". I would love to be someone's hero and as silly as it sounds open a car door for that special person. Forget about the ozone layer for a moment and let’s get back to traditional values. How did we get here in cyberspace in the first place? Most important I am looking to meet a friend that cares as much about me as I do for them. There is a difference between friends and acquaintances. If you know that difference then you are on the same page as I. All others need not bother to apply.
