Knows that poetry and music enhance life. Does not go to bed unaccomplished. Is a dreamer and in the face of a challenge only sees possibilities. Knows that persistence is a virtue and a no only means try harder next time! One night stands and promiscuity are not part of my quest on Match, although I do respect anyone who seeks those types of activities, but please respect my wishes and do not attempt to strike up a conversation with me, because you will be disappointed and will simply be wasting your time! If you consider yourself laid back, to me it means couch potato. Please do not contact me, because I am not laid back. I am ambitious and do not stop unless it is to sleep, read or be mesmerized by the fire burning in the fireplace. If you consider yourself a drama free person, reconsider your statement, because every one has drama, unless they are dead. I am seeking someone who is ambitious, who is proud of their accomplishments, who is sensitive, who considers learning to be the ultimate reward of life, who does not smoke, who does not do drugs, who appreciates wine and spirits, but would never abuse it, someone who considers reading before watching tv, someone who likes to talk, someone who loves the night sky, someone who shoots for the stars, someone who accepts disappointment with a positive outlook, someone who learns from past life experiences and looks forward to applying this new found knowledge, someone who knows that love is selfless, someone who forgives and forgets, someone who is spiritual, someone who is open to exploring new adventures, someone who does not pretend to be someone he is not, someone who wants to be with me because I am beautiful in the dark, because I am who i am, not because of how i look. I want to find someone who will look at me and see me, not just an attractive woman.... I am not shallow...I am not materialistic....I am not going to try to please you, just because I want you to notice me... I am going to be me.... You might not like me when you get over the attraction...I make no excuses for being different...I am proud and I want you to love that about me... I want someone who is not in a hurry to get no where... I want someone who prefers to take the road less traveled... I love the best.... I do not compromise on my taste, but I am not into fads... I am vintage and can thrive in various environments... I am comfortable at the Bellevue Strafford, at the Ritz Carlton, on a deserted island, roughing it in the wild, eating a 7 course meal or an apple, wearing an evening gown or sweat pants, I am at home any where... I seek someone unafraid to live!!!
