Since no one reads, let me lead with this: if you have high school, some college, or smoking listed on your profile, you are not my type.
I am a communicative, compassionate, and caring person who lives every day like it's the last (it's a 9/11 thing). I enjoy meeting new people and having new experiences. I love the arts, most all forms of music (especially live shows), hiking and the occasional yoga class. After a 15 year hiatus that took me to Boston, NY and SoCal, I'm back in Richmond to enjoy the lower cost of living (arrived December 2013).
I'd love to meet a man who likes to talk as much as he likes to listen. He's passionate about something in his life as well as confident; loves himself therefore he's ready to love others. I'm looking for a tall, EDUCATED, nonsmoking man that is more blueneck than redneck.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Seriously? I've had a lot of interesting first dates. All I want is the ability to talk and to hear each other interact. What we "do" is secondary to having a good conversation and determining if there is chemistry/mutual attraction.
