I'm a driven woman with a bit of shyness with relationships. I'm well travelled, well read and well educated. I'll admit that I like the finer things in life but I don't expect my partner to fund my addictions :) I detest arrogance and hope that I can make a connection here that is real. I have a hectic lifestyle but I enjoy spending quality down time which involves good food, good wine and great conversation. If we're laughing, its even better.Im a huge traveller. I've been to so many countries but the the list of places I want to go is longer than the list of places I've been :) It would really help our bond if you have a passport :) I'm loyal, passionate, intense, social but also a bit of a loner. My friends and family are very important to me and its critical to me that my partner get along with them. There obviously has to be a physical attraction but we need more to maintain my interest.
