I am open-minded, independent, sarcastic (I prefer witty), drama free and happy. I am looking for a confident, mature partner who values love, friendship, honesty and respect. I am a reluctant romantic and still searching for the one.
In addition to the requisite traveling, dining out, and walking on beaches in the moonlight holding hands, I also love reading, independent and foreign films, Chicago history, literature and architecture. I like hiking in the mountains and exploring cities. I like riding my bike and horses. I no longer like camping, but still love the outdoors. I like skiing out west, sitting on beach (preferably the ocean, but will settle for Lake Michigan), and small bars with great beer selections. I prefer to be casual, but I dress up very nicely when the occasion calls for it. I'm optimistic, honest, intelligent, and have great luck finding a parking space in the city.
I am looking for great chemistry and conversation.
