Hi! I'm a native to Reston. I lived in Colorado for 10 years to get away from the congestion. I'd prefer to be based here out of Reston or further west of the Beltway zone and rally down to the airport to get out of town when the need presents itself.
If you don't write a message to my inbox, I'm going to erase So and So wants to meet you. You might want to try again by writing a simple message. I love the longer ones of course. Please have a car, a valid driver's license, good income, and good credit. I am looking for a real relationship in which we both are capable and have the same goal which is working towards living our lives together.
I grew up with horses. My sister has a horse farm past Upperville. I am open to moving futher away from Reston. I spent the latter part of my life skiing. It's in my blood and I enjoy skiing. I really love good underground and jam music. I love blues and jazz. I like to take my motorcycle out for a spin occasionally. I like to go out and see live music. I like doing campy tourist trips. I've also experienced years of hardcore camping in the mountains. I was a wrangler on a ranch, outfitter for Elk hunting season, and raft guide. When in DC, I'm a lab technician. I'm also a homebody who likes to stay in a read. I adore reading so I can be very quiet at times. I cook and clean often but am hoping to find a partner who will share in the responsibility/chores. Every household/property needs it's daily chores done. I swim a few miles a week in the pool. I work from home. My home has to be a haven of beauty and organization from which to operate from.
My dream life would be to work for National Geographic but that's not happening. I was happy with living here in Reston in the summer and in CO in the winter. That was when I could get away for a whole ski season. I'd really like to stay here with a good steady guy who likes to go out West and transcend Washingtonian life from time to time. I've done a bit of traveling and would love to find a partner who is into that as well.I have a lot of miles saved up. Trying to get to Greece and Croatia this summer and Brisbane next winter to visit my girl friends over there. Traveling is not a deal breaker though. Might be too expensive to travel any longer. I don't truly crave travel so much these days. I'm really more interested in setting up shop with you. Then see where the wind blows us. I've had enough excitement to last three lifetimes.
My goals seem simple to myself. Living in VA with my trees, pools, friends and family, 2 hours from our beaches and being able to get away to CO to ski here and there. My main goal is so difficult. Finding the man who has the qualities that I need and adore. I'd like to find that someone who is my kindred spirit. I'm not interested in casual flings that disrupt my life when they end so I need a guy with traditional ethics and morals. I'd like to build a whole life together. The pics I loaded are within last three years. Couldn't crop and paste in here so those are pics of friends and me Mum.
Heads up. I'm not interested in substance abusers. The hard core kind of stuff. Alcohol fits in that group. I drink less that what is considered a social drinker. I'm looking for the same. If you have a bit of wine with dinner that's fine. I may join you from time to time. I do adore excellent wine and occasionally like to have glass of wine at a party or a beer when at a concert. I'm more of the mind to keep my wits about me. If you're in the program than I understand that and that you have enough time away from your drinking years to be able to have a real relationship with another. I'm also not interested in long distance dating past the half hour mark whereever I am situated. I'm in Reston with my church and all my beautiful pools and don't feel the need to travel too far.
By your forties, I am assuming that you have good credit (mine is good). That you aren't basically homeless, and have a reliable and safe vehicle. My goal in life is to merge and absorb each other into our respective lives and create a new haven within each others hearts, minds, and lifestyles.
