I was born and raised in NoVa and spent several years in NC and SC in the miltiary and college. Shortly thereafter I came back to DC area for the economy and career opportunities. I am very into healthy living and enjoy many outdoor activities to include biking, hiking, rafting, swimming, scuba, snorkeling et al. I really enjoy my house and dog and love to be home, to cook, to chill and hang out on couch by the fire or on the porch. Enjoy local sports teams and like to attend a few Caps and Nats games a year. I also enjoy the all day music festival scene, jam bands on large grassy areas appeal to me. ;o)
My friends and family would describe me as a funny and loyal. Beauty, nature and kindness make me smile. I am most proud of the last month of my mother's life and how I immersed myself entirely into her care and comfort. It was terrible and beautiful and worth every second. I am grateful for my parents, my friends and family as well as my health and relative wealth. Now that my divorce is in the rear view mirror I am attempting to spark up my social life.
I am seeking a female companion/friend to start out with (and I certainly do not mean 'with benefits'). This person should be a truthful and loving woman who can communicate effectively, who cares for people, who is good and kind and patient. Someone who values family and friends and enjoys the simple things. Someone who likes some of the same things as I but who can also teach me new things as well. Fitness and health should be a priority for you. I like a book worm who can challenge OR dwarf me intellectually. A great cook is nice but someone who is learning is even better as I am a novice and we can learn togetherl. You must like dogs and LOVE mine as she is part of this package!
