I am an enthusiastic, energetic woman, very youthful at heart and in appearance, and I am looking for a relationship of friendship first, and/or a hiking buddy, with the hope that I may find a special man to share the rest of my life with. Although I am drawn to people, I am more an introvert than extrovert and would rather have a quiet dinner for two than go to a loud party. I love to laugh but also enjoy a good balance of meaningful conversation and intimate sharing. I enjoy hiking, running, walking in nature, visiting new places, reading, taking pictures, going to movies/theater, browsing in museums and art galleries, and watching/going to SF Giants/49er games. I also enjoy listening to all kinds of music (except rap and heavy metal) and dabbling with my guitar. I think cooking together is fun and teaches you a lot about yourself and the other person. I am at home in the mountains or at the beach and love them both. Although I am content being on my own, I would be most fulfilled sharing my life with someone special who is emotionally, mentally and financially stable, and who shares the same values/priorities. I am a Christian and my relationship with Jesus is a priority to me. I am open to friendship with people of all faiths but, in a committed relationship, I am looking for a man who loves the Lord.
For a first date, if it's sunny, it would be fun to meet some place fun like North Beach (SF) for a cup of coffee/tea (or maybe some ice cream at Baskin Robbins, or gelato :) - somewhere where we could talk and get to know each other a little. Then maybe walk around the neighborhood to see what's going on at Washington Square. Or we could walk to Coit Tower and check out the fabulous vistas - a great opportunity to share the charm of SF, some fresh air and exercise. If it's cold outside, we could meet somewhere homey and fun, like the Mountain House in Woodside, where there would surely be a nice fire blazing in the bar. In that case, hot chocolate for me!
