ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I am passionate, unique and excited about life; sensible with a touch of silly impulsiveness; calculatedly spontaneous (I'm pretty sure I made up a word there). There is little I fear, and I'm willing to try almost anything... though I no longer have anything to prove.

I love to travel and experience new places, new adventures. Lying on a beach is not my idea of an ideal vacation. Hiking, climbing, kayaking, exploring the culture of a new location… though at the end of the day, I’m ready to kick back with great beer, nice glass of wine, neat single malt, or well made sangria (usually not all at once!).

The world is still an amazing place to me, and I want to experience as much of it as I can.

If I was to describe my ideal, he is intellectual, fun and passionate. He is well traveled or at least knows where he wants to go. He takes care of himself without being vain or shallow. An adult with the heart of a child; knowing when it’s appropriate to be mature and when he can just let go. He has lived and -- though maybe he's been knocked down and/or made a few mistakes along the way-- he continues to enjoy life and does not judge others for the life they lead. He must never want to stop learning and growing.

He is just as adventurous as I am, though it can be in different ways. He is self-assured, financially/ emotionally independent, and comfortable enough with who he has become that he is not threatened in new situations. I am not looking for someone who describes himself as "average" or "regular," and I definitely don't want complacent.

I would love to find a passionate, deep, intelligent, crazy-fun relationship, and I'm not willing to settle just to have someone around. Life is short, and I’m looking for that ever-elusive chemistry that can’t be described, but you know it when you feel it. I'm a pragmatic optimist who chooses to believe that's out there!


*I hate that I need to add this, but if you have to lead with, "I'm probably well above your age range," then you are. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you, just not what I'm looking for. Please don't be offended when I don't respond.
