I am a romantic, sincere, honest, trustworthy, reliable woman seeking fun, passion, who wants only one man in my life. I am a career professional, but long for someone special to spend quiet times at home, relaxing, conversing, dine out with, enjoy the arts with, travel with. I appreciate art, nature, all forms of beauty and am looking for another to share that appreciation. I love to visit Europe, and dream of one day traveling the Nile to see Egypt's treasures!
Although I love to travel and look forward to many new adventures, I am basically a homebody. A major trip every two years would suit me. I love to work on my home to make it beautiful, functional, comfortable, a sanctuary, and love spending time relaxing at home, or entertaining a few close friends. I like to cook when I am not rushed, love the holidays, especially Christmas!, and love decorating for them. I love the arts in all forms, movies, theater, concerts, museums. I like most types of music, classic rock best, but not RAP! I am newly arrived in North Carolina, and would be interested in following college basketball, with the right companion! Going to games would be fun. I have been independent all my life and enjoy spending time with my sister and girlfriends, but there is lots of time in my life for a special man. Like most everyone on this site, I have had heartbreaks and disapppontment in failed relationships, but I believe these hurts and setbacks increase our capacity to love, and ability to appreciate love when we next find it.
I have never smoked, and drink socially in moderation. I love animals and have a dog and two cats. I watch my diet and exercise several times a week. I care about my health and physique, and do my best to look my best. I have a great interest in clothes and dressing well, but I don't want to be fanatical about fitness. I want to enjoy life and grow old gracefully with someone who shares this philosophy. The photos I've posted were taken Fall 2008, so are a current representation of my appearance.
My perfect match is someone who is patient, moral, reliable, intelligent, ethical. Must have a great sense of humor, love to laugh at life, and especially laugh at himself, and I promise to do the same! Must love being at home, and interested in maintaining the home, either puttering around himself or willing to hire it done well. No need to share all my interests, but must allow me the flexibility to enjoy them with friends if he doesn't.
