Amazing family and friends - I am fortunate to have a supportive circle of trust. In a city where everyone seems to work, work, work I find time to have fun and enjoy life. Keeping in shape and keeping it healthy are part of my daily routine. I work out often and have recently taken to running - not marathons, but running for the benefit that cardio brings to the body. I am a fan of sushi and dark chocolate covered almonds. Occasionally I indulge in pizza or Thai when the moment is right.
Cocktails with friends while discussing the week's funny stories, movies on Saturdays, early enough to have the theater to myself and my little nephew in the suburbs are things that keep me going. Painting is a hobby of mine as I was a former art teacher and I am extremely creative. I was also an event planner for 13 years so I am pretty well organized. I do like to plan, not over plan though, and spontaneous weekend getaways are always welcomed. I've been to London, Paris, Rome, Mexico, and Canada, and in a few months I am headed to Cuba.
I have a Little Sister whom I mentor from the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization. Mentor sounds so impersonal but it’s the best way to describe how the relationship started. I was paired with her 12 years ago and we are now the best of friends. She is a huge part of my life and I am amazed at what she has accomplished despite all odds against her.
I am looking to meet a confident guy, who wants to be appreciated for all the little things. I find that affection, honesty and trust are very sexy traits. It's important to be able to engage in witty banter with my guy so I am looking for someone with this type of personality. I believe that a sense of style says something about how one cares for himself and fyi - I love a great pair of jeans with a dress shirt on a man. Being dependable is of the utmost of importance and wanting to build a family circle of your own is a must. Understanding that men and women think totally differently, yet recognizing this and being able to relate to this is a trait I am seeking in my partner. Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus is an amazing book. I think everyone should have to read it. I would like to meet someone who is constantly evolving. If you are healthy in mind and body and are a generous person who is looking to meet his other half then definitely reach out to me.
