My family and friends are important to me. Being alone is not really a problem and I am pretty independent so I am not looking to just fill a void in my life or add unwanted drama just so I have something to do. I am however, interested in finding someone to enjoy life with again and to make happy. I'm looking for that lifelong friend, not a drama queen. Drama is the last thing I'm looking for. Want to meet someone I can relate to, laugh with, and enjoy doing things with. You know. On a rainy day lounge around in bed and talk over coffee or just curl up on the couch and keep each other warm while I read to her. Or decide at the last minute to jump in the jeep and go sightseeing (so what if its South Dakota or Colorado) or take in a show. My work keeps me busy and sometimes I end up traveling and it would be nice to know that more then my mate would be there to welcome me home. I want to meet a woman that is independent and strong-minded. Willing to work with side by side with me, yet when she needs to can tell me I'm full of it. Love and respect for each other is important if the relationship should grow. I want to take time out to enjoy dining, theater, sightseeing, museums, or just relaxing over a glass of wine and a movie. I want to share moments with someone that fits in my world as I fit in hers. Where talking to each other is just as pleasurable and special as sitting next to each other and not saying a word. Not interested in a combative relationship!!
