I hike (backpacking, day hiking, horseback, etc into the Sierra Nevada mountains)
I write (blogging, business writing, etc)
I teach (mentoring, leadership development, entrepreneurs)
I lead (at work, at home, I step up)
I love (love my family, "most" of humanity, mi amore)
I follow (God, others' ideas, etc - I'm not afraid to follow, but know when to stop if they are leading me off a cliff)
I travel (England, Scotland, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Holland, Italy, Mexico, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, and all over the USA)
I learn (continuous improvement at work and in my personal life is something I strive to do, I read about and act on new ideas)
these are not in order of importance, just how they came out of my mind.
While outward beauty catches my eye, there is not enough outward beauty possible to make up for a lack of inner beauty (morals, values, honesty, humor, love and humility). I have strong values and opinions, but am open to listen to another viewpoint. While my core beliefs haven't changed much over time, I have evolved.
I am looking for an honest person that knows herself and wants someone that will be her best friend. An intellectual that finds humor in life and doesn't take themselves too seriously. A responsible woman with a work hard/play hard spirit that actually knows how to relax, too. Sometimes there is nothing more pleasurable than relaxing by a fire or even just chilling in front of the TV.
A woman that is comfortable with whom she is and happy with life. Not complacent, still learning and being relavent. Sexy and not afraid to show affection.
My perfect partner must love kids, dogs, outdoor pursuits and be adventurous. Be a good travel partner, a best friend, a happy person with a willingness to work at a relationship - even when life is tough, or should I say, especially when life is tough.
Looking for a lover and best friend that knows me and that lets me get close enough to know her.
