A little about me: I'm bright, quick-witted, good-hearted and fun • I live in the present, not in the past • I'm just as happy exploring a third-world destination as I am hanging out at a coffee shop watching people go by (though I've traveled to distant lands on a moment's notice, 37 countries some more than once and counting) • I can acclimate to any social situation from super-funky to uber-swanky • I'm the girl you take to an art opening, but slip out the side door with, laughing, when it's too pretentious • I can be a "Lady" with ease or hang out and impress all your friends • If you capture my heart, you have my whole heart • I can feed you...
You are: Anyone born with a wanderlust spirit who possesses a sense of adventure and spontaneity but also has a good heart, a solid mind, and can make me laugh • Must love animals, have good friendships and familial relationships, always be interested in learning new things, experiencing new cultures, and be just as comfortable in a crowd as they are being alone • You should feel confident (as I do) navigating foreign lands even if you don't speak the language • And be someone who knows the meaning of pursuing a dream • You are someone who would prefer to someday look back on your life choices as being heroic rather than safe • Good manners greatly appreciated • Humility, honesty, and communication skills essential • Discussion of art, politics and world issues encouraged (Lovers of Basquiat inquire within; Fans of the Tea Party, we're not meant to be) • Someone who expresses or enjoys creativity in any form • Preferably someone socially and environmentally conscious, and spiritually curious • Someone who realizes that life is short and now is the time to live it...but...is willing to kiss for hours on end with no regrets • Someone who can shake their "groove thang" but also lead me with gusto in some sweaty, heart-stopping salsa (we'll make up the moves as we go) • Bonus points if you can converse in Italian+know how to cook+are funny.
Most importantly, walk strong but have a kind heart. :)
p.s. If you've made it this far, I am 46, not 42, but don't want to date grandpa, so lowered it so I can turn up in your search, as I feel younger and pics are accurate, so hope you can see past a chronological number.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's meet for drinks to see if there's a connection -- if it's meant to be, maybe we'll stay out all night talking. If we get to date 2, surprise me with something fun and different - from wandering through a farmer's market to you name it. I love new experiences.
