I’m a little of a lot of things. I come from a family with both conservative and liberal values and politics that I share some of each and respect those opinions I don’t agree with. I enjoy a nice night out on the town, theatre, fine dining as well as camping, skiing, hiking, sailing, wakeboarding/water skiing, horse back riding, a good bon fire and a hole in the wall bar to play pool. Indoors I enjoy cooking, entertaining, museums, wine tasting, reading, catching up with friends and family.
I love to travel whether locally or abroad. My sister and I are absolute opposites and she is one of my best friends. I am professional at work and dress the part, but out of the office it’s jeans unless the occasion calls for other apparel. I am known to be ridiculously patient, but when someone actually crosses the line with me I handle it tactfully and direct and it usually startles the person.
Sometimes those great ideas you have after a few cocktails are fun to do later, but sometimes they were really bad ideas.
I enjoy coffee in the morning, wine in the evening and beers with friends. I enjoy quiet evenings at home, though they are rarely spent watching tv, yet it is usually on and I catch bits and pieces.
I believe in the woman walking first to be seated, a man opening the door when walking in together and standing up to greet a lady (when appropriate) for no other reason than they are good manners. I don’t need to be taken care of, I am independent and self sufficient but I would like someone to share life’s experiences.
I see so many people saying they are looking for basic traits like honesty, kindness, caring, empathy, loyalty, trust…I have to say that is a given.
