I'm an adventurous, fun-loving woman, with many athletic and cultural interests. I have a good sense of humor, and can laugh at myself. I love the outdoors, enjoy being surrounded by the beauty of nature, & find the mountains & the water very peaceful. I am fit & have always maintained a healthy lifestyle, (though I admit to satisfying chocolate cravings at times). I have many partner-adaptable athletic interests (favorites cycling, hiking, skiing, sailing). I'm an explorer by nature, & so I like to try new foods, new experiences, new vacation locales, and new adventures. I am young at heart, spirit, behavior, and appearance, and have been told by everyone that I look many years younger than my age. I've worked hard in my career, but from early on discovered the importance of a well balanced life. My 2 kids are young adults now and out on their own, early in their careers, and I'm very proud of them. At this point in my life, I have the time and desire to devote to a long term relationship and make it a priority, as I look forward to the next chapter of my life.
I have so much love to give in a relationship, and I'm looking for a true best friend, and for us to complement one another. I am very loyal, and will support and encourage you, and will always have your back. I'm naturally kind to people, and have been told I have a good heart. I'm an upbeat, open minded, and optimistic person, & look for the good in people. I'm very patient, easy to talk to, and I'm a good listener. I'm outgoing, genuine, and very down to earth. I like to show you that I'm thinking of you in small ways. I value communication, honesty, loyalty, & fidelity as vital to a good relationship. I'm a romantic, affectionate, and sensual person, and appreciate the importance of an emotional, spiritual, and great physical connection. I enjoy slow dancing, relaxing in front of a warm fire or beautiful sunset with a glass of wine & great conversation. Looks fade over time, but intelligence and an active mind will always be sexy to me.
I have a strong musical background & enjoy many types of music and dancing. I like classic rock, blues, classical, jazz, and a little opera. I have been known to dance to Queen while cooking. I love to relax at the end of the week, listening to live music. I enjoy the arts, museums, movies, and small ethnic restaurants. I had season tickets to the Walnut Theater for many years. 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 cuddling on the couch.
