Well, what to say? I am new at online dating and not very good at self promotion so bear with me. . . .
I love photography. I love to cook for those close to me. My kids are what make me smile the most. I am looking for someone who has kids and/or likes kids because my kids are a big part of my life. I am caring and supportive and I believe that mutual respect, honesty and support are critical in a lasting relationship. I have no problem giving my partner a little breathing room to do his own thing sometimes. Being glued at the hip is not always desired.
I love to travel. I have traveled a lot (Europe, Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America) but there are many places I would still like to go. Asia and Africa are on my list. I speak fluent Spanish and found that learning another language opens the door to understanding other cultures and perspectives on life. I also speak a little Dutch.
I grew up behind the scenes in the music industry in the bay area and love festivals and concerts. Camping, traveling, cooking, gardening, singing and scuba diving are some things I love doing. I enjoy music and art of all types.
I am looking for someone to enjoy life with! I love good conversation and good food. Learning new things is a favorite pastime. History, architecture, and science intrigue me. I guess I am kinda a nerd. I am well educated. I seek a partner who is knowledgeable about the world and passionate about his work. I am a fun loving person, but I can also be serious at the appropriate times.
I am easy going and laid back, though when I am at work I am very passionate and devoted. I don't like drama and I am not a high maintenance kind of person.
I would like to meet someone that is looking for a long term relationship, a partnership. I am looking for someone with whom I can laugh and enjoy life...someone who is not the uptight type. I love a man who can make me laugh. I wish I had more of a knack for making people laugh!
My family is very important to me and I am close to them. I have great friends and would love to meet someone to share in the journey. I believe in open communication and honesty between partners, that is the only way to make a relationship last. Honesty is probably the most important thing to me in a committed relationship. A true relationship should be based on friendship and that is what I seek. Chemistry has to be there if it is going to work, of course, so I prefer to meet face to face rather than spend days and weeks emailing. If you have read all of this (wow, congrats! I swear I don't talk too much . . . ) and feel that we could be a good match then send me an email!
