I am a genuine and passionate lover of life, loyal, cosmopolitan with traditional values.
A brunette disguised as a blond, coupled with all fun on the outside, and real depth of seriousness inside. Complex? YES! High maintenance? NO! My background includes having been raised in Europe, being a former Fulbright girl, NYC strategist, researcher in Japan, teacher in China, and volunteer lion and horse rescuer in Africa. Friends tell me I am not a girl next door type, but affectionate, kind, giving, has a warm heart and a wicked sense of humour - even when the going gets tough. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had a diverse range of experiences and still managed to stay planted with two feet solidly on the ground.
I am happy to cook comforting meals for the man who would happily sip wine next to me while I am preparing the recipe. I desire nothing less than a man of honor with the ability to play hard and work hard, who himself is looking for a woman to be his partner for life. Going without showers for 23 days whilst sailing across the Atlantic, or doing the waltz at the Opera ball are really a no brainer for me. Neither is mocking stables whilst discussing world affairs.
I am looking for THAT FEELING when I have butterflies in my stomach when I see him ...A smart, switched on, well traveled and fun man with down to earth values whose inherent nature somehow magically intersects with mine... The man I'm hoping to meet is honest, loving, loyal, appreciates the value of a family and has a steel moral compass. He has a laid back attitude, but is adventurous and active enough to give me a run for my money. His attractiveness, authenticity and positive energy shine from within. The ability to make me laugh would be grand!
If you have Don Juan's looks, but you are shallow intellectually and emotionally inside...well, you are not the love of my life.
HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE INTELLIGENT, STRONG, YET AFFECTIONATE, we would be well together. Oleta Adams' Get here is the theme song of my life...and maybe yours? If you recognize yourself in the above, I would be delighted to hear from you in the form of an email.
PS: I am a traveler, not a tourist.
