Life is too short to waste on not enjoying and cherishing each moment. I'm a well-traveled, well-rounded, attractive, open, intelligent woman who is secure in what she wants and needs in a man. I have boundless energy, creativity, and lust for life and am looking for a no-nonsense, romantic,open-hearted, generous,secure guy who knows a good woman when he sees her and is ready for a relationship commitment. I have a full and exciting life of interests (from outdoor adventure, sailing, dance and a wide array of music) and world travel (I'm a travel writer and photographer). However, life would be so much more enjoyable with that one special person to share it with. As partners we should enhance eachother's lives with lots of laughter (humor is extremely important) and spontenaity. We all have some baggage, but I prefer leaving mine at home, along with past heartaches and divorces. My partner should be emotionally and financially ready to embark on a new, healthy relationship and have the emotional and intellectual depth of knowing what he wants and needs. I see life as an adventurous journey to be lived to its fullest and not wasted on regrets, failures, and lost loves-- which I feel has only enlightened and strengthened me for that quality relationship to come.
For a first date, I'd like to meet in cafe or take a short walk outdoors and get to know the person's likes and interests. Chemistry is very important, but so is a meeting of the minds and similar paths in life.
