I'm very much into the outdoors, running, cycling, enjoying a refreshing walk or run in the evening. I run short distances; 2-5 miles, cycling; 15-60 miles, I'm not competition crazy; I enjoy exercising with my partner, but I work hard at my fitness and try to challenge myself. I have horses and do eventing.
My goal is a long lasting relationship. Im hard working Monday through Friday, and fill my free time with lots of activities, reading novels, watching movies, and some tv, dining in the bay area, occasional play, museum. Taste in music is rock, but sometimes classical, pop. I especially like the colors purple, lavender, and deep red.
I can easily dress up or down, high heels and dresses, or high heels and jeans, or cowboy boots with jeans or the right dress.
I would like to meet a gentleman who is attractive, athletic, fit , in shape, who would go for a run or cycle, has an appreciation of dressing up and going out for a great meal and some romance. While hiking, car camping and fishing are great I'm really looking for someone more active. I try to keep myself in good shape and I would appreciate the same.
Communication is important, a willingness to compromise and put in the work to have a great relationship.
Please have an updated, current picture of yourself; as I have! Physical attraction is important to me but obviously not the only important ingredient. If we meet I think you'll be presently surprised! While chatting for a short time initially is important and appropriate-for the basics- I think meeting is the only real way to know if we're going to connect. If your on this site only to chat, looking for the perfect 10, not sincerely interested in following through; please please don't tie up my precious time. Most importantly, Im looking for quality of character.

first date something simple, peets coffee for instance, and go from there
