I am an energetic and busy person, with a lot of ambitions and aspirations. Whatever is the opposite of couch potato - that's me. I enjoy a variety of activities that do not make me sit back and watch something happen (this means I don't do TV) - I like to go and do the stuff myself. From working out to wine tasting, from dancing to language lessons, I can probably enjoy just about everything life has to offer, or at least give it a fair try.I always strive to learn more and be more, and am looking for a partner who will encourage that and do the same.
My family and close friendships are very important to me, and I spend a lot of my free time spending it with the people I love. I am also fairly conservative and traditional about most things in life.
The quality that stands out to me immediately in another person is refinement, or sophistication. Intellect and ability to make me laugh are important as well. Also, cultural awareness and true appreciation for diversity are essential.
I am not looking for something superficial or short-term. I am looking for a deeper match emotionally, in lifestyle, beliefs, goals, and ethical principles. Seeking that "partner in crime" person, if you will - someone with whom I can travel, debate issues, enjoy a glass of a prized wine I've been saving, share ideas, advice, support. And definitely someone with whom I can laugh to tears :)
