I am passionate about the outdoors and nature, books, and independant movies that make you think. Being active is essential for me. It keeps me centered.Our recent national election has brought out my volunteerism. I find I watch the news more than I use to because I care about what is happening to our planet. My friends think of me as a confident, accomplished, and successful woman. I am not afraid to take a risk (except doing this online dating thing). I am fortunate in that I am a business consultant and my time is very flexible. I would like to share my life with an active, intelligent, articulate, successful, and fun-loving man who is also curious about life and has a zest to learn. I would consider it a plus if my match also has a good understanding of himself and can articulate his emotions.
