I'm a romantic so have avoided exploring the whole "on-line" world. I've been waiting to "lock eyes across a crowded room" however I find myself in fewer and fewer crowded rooms these days.
In a nutshell I'm a kind, confident, independent, intelligent, passionate, affectionate woman who enjoys the simple things in life ... family, friends, good food, good wine, conversation, laughter, movies, reading, travelling and the great outdoors (I just re-read this sentence and should mention that I’m also usually humble). I enjoy going out but also content to have a quiet night at home. I'm a city mouse / country mouse. I'm easy going and basically low maintenance - no drama, no games and all my baggage fits in a small carry-on. I realize there are a lot of things in life that have to be taken seriously however I also feel it's important to be playful and spontaneous.
I've had the good fortune in my life to travel extensively and hope to find someone to continue exploring the world with (or lazing on beaches is fine too). So far my favourite country was India. Favourite City - Barcelona. But I also find cottaging, canoeing and camping in our own beautiful country a luxury.
I'm athletic however recently gave up the gym membership - finally had to admit to myself that staying fit through outdoor activities is better suited to my personality and lifestyle (although I do admire people who can get their butts there regularly). While I am by no means a health nut I do have a very long bucket list so staying healthy is important to me.
I have a great family, amazing friends and I enjoy my own company so I don't need someone to share my life with - I want it (I think there's a big difference).
I don't have children of my own but realize that most of you will, which isn't a problem (I often rent my niece and nephew).
What I'm looking for..... a best friend who I can't keep my hands off ;)
