I take pride in who I am, what I do and how I do things. I work out regularly but am not a fanatic about it. I love the outdoors, traveling, fine dining, a good wine, gardening, flowers in bloom, animals, and children. I am very adventuresome and really enjoy horseback riding and doing things outdoors. I have even sky dived in the past. I can dress up or down as the occasion demands...from glamorous formal events, to the theater or 5 star restaurants to movies, popcorn and tennies. I am independent, hardworking and tenacious. I am looking for my best friend with similar interests.. I am very family oriented and a great hostess. I am very loyal to those close to me. I cherish and value my true friends and family. I believe in monogamy and unconditional love. I trust until the trust has been broken. I have a lot of love, affection and companionship to give. I will respect if respected. It is okay to open my doors,spoil me, love me to death and ignite the chemistry between us. In return, please accept the same as I am looking for permanency once I find her (of course, it takes time to get to know someone so what I mean is that I will not jump into a relationship.)She is attractive, confident, takes care of her physique, is mentally challenging to me, strong, not afraid of competition; she has acheived success, is financially secure, likes to travel, is romantic and looking for intimacy with a lifelong partner. Communication is a must as is complete trustworthiness. This woman is also a lady who would rarely let a guy open a door, is tender and sensitive as I am. I know someday I will find you. I have a lot of patience so am not in a hurry to settle for less than what I want, need and desire. You need to have a current photo if you wish a reply from me.
