There's only one way to find out whether you think these words describe me AND how I live, right? (independent, hard-working, confident, giving, passionate, intellectual, creative, playful, adaptable, adventurous, conversationalist, persevering, and honest)
My interests are varied, and always growing because I like to learn and try new things. I can sleep in and have a great breakfast on the patio, to bike riding, to going to the symphony, to going out 2-stepping, all in one day! My local bucket list includes trying out zip lines, handgun and archery ranges, new restaurants, Retama, live bands, and kayaking. Have a new passport in need of attention too. However, my 6th and 8th grade daughters are a priority. My social life is kept very separate from them.
A world traveler from the rural Midwest that can handle backpacking to 5-star. Lived in 2 foreign countries and visited 9 others. ALSO spent some time on foreign U.S. military bases. Would love to see Africa, India, Vietnam, and Russia. Waiting for the right person to do maiden Vegas with. Locally--clubs/pubs/dancehall, mom & pops, to fine dining, and parks. Let's go! Whisk me away!
My ideal guy--doesn't mean I can find it--would be clean-cut (am picky about goatees and beards. Not a fan of mustaches only) taller and bigger than me, and definitely a non-smoker. I'm attracted to a man that is confident, combines brain with brawn, and has learned from diverse life experiences. A guy that can "talk" or hold their own socially is a must. A man that has their life "together" and has expectations of life is a plus. I'm attracted to men that are hard-working, responsible, and driven. Being handy is always appreciated. I want a man's man to a degree--an intellectual cultured bad boy--yet a gentlemen that can support, respect, appreciate, and pleasure a good woman. Does this make sense? Is all this possible?
Prefer men from about 35-54 years old. 5'10" to about 6'4". Average/Athletic built. Caucasian/Hispanic/Other. Single/Divorced/Never Married. Again, just preferences.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm there to meet you and get a feeling of you, not the place, food, or what we're doing. Conversation of course.
