I'm driven and competitive, but like to see others succeed. And while I really like my job, it's not my life. Others describe me as attractive and smart with a good sense of humor.
I enjoy being active and having fun, but I'm also happy with good conversation and a bottle of wine. My job involves travel, I have kids and I do volunteer work(I sit on the Board of Directors for a charity that is very important to me). I have a very busy life and I like it that way - most of the time.
I come from a small town in Upstate New York and feel the conflict between the simple life I grew up with and the urban life I now live.
My ideal mate is happy and has a job he likes and is good at. He has a quick sense of humor and gets sarcasm. He is as comfortable getting his hands dirty as he is ordering at a 5 star restaurant. He is active and fit, restless, but also patient and calm. He likes animals and kids. He will introduce me to new activities and hobbies. He enjoys the beach, but also wants to see the world.
I'm not looking to get married right away, but eventually I'd like to find a life partner - someone who wants to see and do it all with me. Someone who is passionate about his life and plans for a future. My life partner (if ever I find one) will be as committed to our relationship as I am - no matter what life throws at us.
