I like thoughtful conversation, walks, holding hands, staying fit, horses, ATV's, car trips, new places to visit, picnics, learning (I'm a bookaholic), laughing, plays, and kind, thoughtful, grounded people with a sense of humor. As far as I know I pass this way but once. I want to make the journey a good one, full of love, joy, smiles and positive-thinking people. I believe the best long-term relationships are vested in enduring friendship and a spark of excitement. I now travel whenever I can and take on new things at every opportunity and inclination. I would like to join hands with a partner and heartthrob who has come to terms with his past disappointments and heartaches and wants to move into a wonderful friendship and beyond, if the chemistry is right. At the risk of overstepping the bounds of humility, I have been told by friends I would be a great "catch" and do believe there is some merit to their assessment, while smiling and recognizing they may be a bit biased.
