I know my profile is long...but please...there is simply no point in wasting our time emailing back and forth and even having a meeting in person to see if there is chemistry if you have not read my profile. My profile is an honest and true representation of myself, so if you like it then we have a good start. If you don't...then let's both move on. I only email back to men whose profile I read and liked, so I hope you say more than a few typical words to separate yourself from all of the other fishes.
All of the points I have made in the following are to help you to self select. If you don't feel you match on the main points (like small children at home, being a smoker, etc) then please keep looking and good luck. I am clear on what/who I am looking for and I hope you are also.
I am looking for someone late 30's to early 40's (/b). If you are over 50 please keep looking. That may seem ageist and I apologize, but I have a lot of energy, generally pass for mid-30's and want to have a relationship with someone in a similar place.
**** I will be away all summer, not returning from my travels until September 1st. If you email me to meet up I can tell you didn't read my profile! LOL!
This summer I have taught and studied in NYC and San Francisco, Toronto and Ottawa, as well as a vacation in Belize! Last year was NYC, Philadelphia, Dallas and Austin, Texas, New Orleans and Ottawa. Next year...who knows????
I have a career I am passionate about that allows me follow two of my passions which are travel and dancing. I am a dance teacher, choreographer and movement educator, writer and speaker. I did run my own studio for over 10 years, but now I am guest teaching so that I can travel and have a better work and life balance. I love entrepeneurship and still feel like an entrepeneur, but I am glad I do not have to manage anyone else's life but my own! Work no longer consumes me and I recognize the importance of a good work-life balance and for the most part I believe I manage that.
My goal is to continue to travel the world and share my knowledge with as wide as an audience as I can. I am not ready to get settled into one place yet on a permanent basis, which means dating a man who can travel and be spontaneous would be the best for me. Having someone who has joint custody of young children would probably not work out, as you would not be able to travel with me. I have been a bit of gypsy for a while and like it that way. I want to see the world and share it with someone by my side! Life experienced with someone you love beside you only enhances the experience and I am excited to find the person to share the sites and cultures of the world with AND...they learn a chunk of the new language and I'll learn another chunk and together we can converse with the locals!
I can (and will this fall) get my British passport which opens up Europe! Yeah!!
I am looking to do volunteer work abroad next year (thinking Africa at the moment) and to see Europe. I am also working on learning Spanish on my own, so if you speak Spanish or want to learn that with me, you get bonus points! I need someone who is active and adventurous!
I want to connect with someone on a multitude of levels including spiritual, emotional and physical. The primary connection I need though is intellectual. I am looking for someone to challenge me and whose sense of humuor is full of wit and irreverence. I will not, however, deny the importance of sexual chemistry in a relationship. I want passion and fireworks, along with tenderness. I am sexually a free spirit and one of my jobs is teaching women to feel comfortable in their bodies.
If you are not a spiritual person we would not ultimately get along. I do want someone who has thought of the bigger questions in life and is open to a spirited (pun intended) discussion. I believe in the Law of Attraction and write a gratitude journal daily and have for many years.
I am looking for someone who leads a healthy lifestyle but isn't consumed by their appearance or obsessed with working out. I enjoy food and eating out and slowly but surely I am broadening my culinary horizons. I love to bake, but not to cook (as of yet anyways). Please do NOT expect me to cook for you and be that the type of woman to have dinner waiting for you, but cooking together could be fun.
Physical attractiveness is important to me, but not in the typical sense. Rather, I need to feel the physical spark/chemistry with someone, regardless of whether they are "traditionally handsome" or not. To me, if there is a spark, you become the best looking man in the room. In your photos, I would need to see your eyes! They are "the window to the soul" after all.
I will be honest when I say I am a free spirit and not too sure yet if I am ready to settle down. I definitely enjoy my freedom and I am wondering what it may look like to be in a "relationship" yet still maintain my freedom. I love my girlfriends and male friends as well as my alone time to reflect and recharge. I plan on adding a man to my life, not taking away from those things/people/activities that I find most precious and satisfying.
I am looking for a man who is has an entrepreneurial spirit so that he can understand mine. I want a man who is adventurous and spontaneous; a man who will perhaps suggest skinny dipping or at least join me, rather than the type of man who is a watcher. I want a man who participates! I do not consider watching a sport to be participating. I do want a man who will challenge me; intellectually, spiritually, physically and perhaps even emotionally; meaning expanding my heart beyond where it currently is!
I need a man who would appreciate my creativity and support me in my career endeavours. I would like a man who thinks I am hilarious, intelligent, sexy and kind. As much as I believe we all are responsible for our own lives and emotions, I must concede that certain people have the ability to bring out the best in me, while others do not. Obviously, the best match would be someone with whom we bring out the best in each other and appreciate all the best qualities.
If you would like to meet me, please ask me out. It is not that I am old fashioned, I am just busy and do not wish to juggle numerous men who are only mildly interested and simply want to banter back and forth on email or even texting. If you are interested and want to meet, ask me out and please have a plan of what you would like to do. I am a woman of opinions of what I'd like to do and I'm not against making plans myself, but the romantic side of me likes the first date to be in the man's court and that does not mean I need to be swept off my feet.
I would love to be introduced to a new activity. I would like to learn about something you are passionate about (very sexy!). I would like to feel that we have a real conversation, where there is give and take as we learn about each other. I will be looking to suss out if we have a compatible outlook on life.
You must be a non-smoker...this point in non-negotiable. I like my man to smell and taste good and like taking good care of himself.
I also know myself and tend to like men my age or younger. Maybe I think of myself as too young to be dating a guy who is in his 50's and that will be my issue to get over perhaps, but right now it seems someone in their 30's or early 40's will work for me. I listen to pop music and love to go out dancing so I would want someone who still finds that fun, rather than juvenile or pathetic. Having said that, I grew up as a classical musician and ballerina, love classic rock and watched Masterpiece Theatre throughout my youth, so if you need someone cultured I am that also. I just have a lot of energy and want someone who keeps up.
A word about emails: if you email me and simply send 1 line like: "Hey how r u?" I will likely not be responding. A line like that shows that you likely did not read my profile and if you are man of such few words and little effort (ie. not even spelling "are") than we will not get along long term and you will no doubt think I talk too much! I want a man who enjoys the art of communication.
Oh, and if you do not have a photo, please do not bother messaging to chat or email, unless you attach a photo. It is not that I am obsessed with looks, but honestly, if you either can't be bothered to find a photo to attach or are hiding your face for some reason it is awfully darn suspicious. Are you married and don't want to be found out...? Something fishy if you can't or won't show your face.
