I am taking a break from dating for the moment so I can catch my breath. Match doesn't seem to let me remove myself completely from the list.
I'm a curious, passionate and easily amused person who loves to laugh, have good conversations, learn new things, be stretched and accomplish goals in life. I'm warm and affectionate and love people. I'm up for exploring the city or a much deeper relationship.
My friends are generally smart, tender spirited and creative in some way or another. I like people who go after life but can relax and enjoy simple pleasures. Ultimately, I'm looking for a man who is a leader, who has a sense of humor about life and who is able to connect emotionally. I'm strong and smart, but also a sensitive soul, so a guy who likes a bit of independence and challenge in a woman is a must. That said, I seriously respect a man who can take charge and take care of people and situations. Men who pay attention to the needs and situations of others earn big props. Loyalty is a must and something I offer a partner. If you're handy, all the better.
Faith is a significant aspect of my life, and--for a life partner-- I'm looking for a God fearing man.
Kayaking, hiking and beautiful vistas all make me happy. Some of the my favorite, simple pleasures include: hot showers, sun on my skin, a well-told story, tasty food, the exercise high, big words, big smiles and surprises.
