*Updated December '13*
I'm 44 years old, and moved back to Colorado recently, after living in Los Angeles for most of the last 20 years. I'm a professional in the SCUBA industry, but have a real job here due to lack of water. I adore skiing, and hope to do it more often now that I'm here. I am lean and very fit. I diet/work out 4-6 days weekly. I'm adventurous, fun, goofy, silly, playful, and I have a GREAT sense of humor. I balance these by being sincere, intense, honest, street-wise and intelligent. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, and you will always know how I feel.
I like diving, boating, skiing, travel, working out/diet, camping, computers, movies, poker, music, hiking, caving, and SO much more. I can fix stuff, lift heavy things, have a cat, and like dogs as well. What more could a girl want?
Once an attraction and friendship is there, it takes work and empathy to make a relationship last. I feel I'm really good at looking out for her needs and wants in a relationship, not just my own. I'd like a partner and best friend.
Now some things I'd like:
Please pass me by if you're separated, sewing oats, seeking commitment-free, FWB's, rebound, etc. The possibility of more than a casual fling should exist for us to be a match.
Drinks are fine, but don't be an alcoholic, it's a deal breaker. I'm also not interested in people who use drugs, including pot. Preferably, you're not far to the left in your political views. Personal ethics are HUGE with me, and for you as well. Money doesn't matter, just be living within your means.
The best "dates" are those for which there is little planning, but where life experiences happen. Then you get to interact with a person "in real time"; to me, that's where you find out if sparks will fly. Not that I don't love the classic dinner and a movie, but often a stroll around an outdoor shopping center can be just as intimate and revealing.
