I am independent, but really want to start a new relationship with someone special. I work hard, but like to relax and enjoy my time off. I have a good sense of humor, am easy to get along with and am very flexible to do new and different things. I like to read non-fiction, generally about people and places, and learn something new every day. I am curious about many things and like to be with others that challenge me to think. I am told I am a nice person and articulate my thoughts and feelings well. I greatly enjoy many types of music, mostly comtemporary jazz and oldies. I am easy to please and don't need luxury, just honesty and someone to enjoy life with. If you are a smoker, please don't contact me. I would like a long term relationship with someone special.
On a first date, I would really enjoy something as simple as a nice meeting in a quiet place. Being able to talk to my date for most of the evening to get to know him is important to me. A bit of romance is nice, but more important to me is hearing what my date would like to tell me about himself and the kind of woman he would like to be with. Being able to focus my attention on him to get to know him would be ideal.
