"Everyone has baggage, the trick is to find someone who loves you enough to unpack it."
Hopefully there is someone out there that when we meet, we will connect on many different levels and be compatible, have fun, enjoy each other a lot. We will make a good team. We'll communicate. We won't take ourselves too seriously, and laugh lots.
Togetherness = sharing life's pleasures and responsibilities. Eating, cooking, traveling, watching movies, walking, talking, and being with other people together. I hope to meet someone that appreciates some alone time and prefers being with me. I'm very loyal and giving with the people around me, so I hope you are the same way. There is nothing like an equal relationship with give and take.
I am very active, hike, work out, dance and jump around whenever possible - cosmopolitan nature girl, just as at home in a museum in NY City as a tent in the mountains. I love to travel and discover new places, there's a never ending supply of new places to explore around here. I haven't traveled far away as much as I'd like and hope to do that more in the future. I have been to Europe, Mexico and Canada. Of all places I loved the French Alps the best so far.
I have 3 great kids who don't need me much anymore and have their own lives ( I started early) who are a joy to me every day still.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping teenagers grow and succeed. I'm also remodeling my house which has been lots of fun so far.
And believing in love at first sight - just in case....
I’m really good at
almost anything I set my mind to, well maybe not statistics class... my job, dancing, playing the piano, being a friend and a mother, cooperating, cooking some stuff, building snowmen, scrabble, listening and kissing
The first things people usually notice about me
They say my smile and dimples.
