I'm an adventurous, upbeat woman, with many diverse athletic and cultural interests. I work hard, but make time to have fun. I have balance in my life, & don't do anything to excess. I have a good sense of humor. I love the outdoors & enjoy being surrounded by nature, & find the mountains & the water very peaceful. I am fit & work out 3x a week. I maintain a fairly healthy lifestyle, though I admit to satisfying chocolate cravings at times! I have a variety of partner-adaptable athletic interests (skiing, cycling, tennis, golf, sailing, scuba, and hiking). I'm an explorer by nature, & so I like to try new foods, new experiences, new vacation locales, & I'm well traveled. I'm an optimistic person, & look for the good in people. I enjoy learning and interesting conversation. I'm outgoing, genuine, warm, and down to earth. I'm thoughtful, giving, & very loyal. People find me easy to talk to, and I'm a good friend. I value communication, honesty, &amp fidelity as vital to a good relationship. I'm a kind & compassionate person & enjoy helping people in my work, & feel like I make a difference in this world. I'm a romantic, affectionate & person. I enjoy slow dancing & relaxing in front of a warm fire or beautiful sunset with a glass of wine & great conversation. I have a strong musical background & enjoy many types of music and dancing. I love to relax at the end of the week, & listening to live music is a real treat. I enjoy the fine & performing arts, museums, movies, and small ethnic restaurants. Have had season tickets to the Walnut Theater. I'm a sociable person & enjoy being with friends & family, but I particularly cherish a quiet evening at home cooking together and watching a movie.
