I have been in northern cal since feb 2012 . i moved from so cal , santa monica and am still adjusting. I am looking for a relationship based on mutual attraction respect and shared interests. I am not interested in flings . Are you a true gentleman ? If so , you've got my attention.
I am a professional woman with a great family and job. I am caring and compasionate and a good Person. Not jaded, open with my feelings and ready to share my life with a man I can call my best friend . I am pretty friendly, down to earth and casual in my interactions. I believe in politeness and the golden rule . Please however, don't mistake my Niceness for weakness!
Random things about me: I like tomatoes, balloons, kissing, thrift stores, bargains, and public display of affection. I I have an unusual name, and a slight accent. I buy used books on Amazon. People say I look much younger than my age. I am probably too hard on myself so I don't do well with people who are overtly critical of me. I think imperfections are endearing and make you, you! I will not ask you to change for me! I want to love you as you are!
I can be deep and philosophical. But equally goofy and playful. I value education and goal oriented men. I believe we all need a passion and a purpose in life to be happy. My passion is helping others and it sustains me through everything.
Hope you love to travel. I have a passport and have been to multiple countries. Just came back from easter island and Chile!!! Let's go somewhere together. Seattle? NY? Maybe Nepal? Lima? :)
Sweep me off my feet! Take me on an amazing date. It has been so long :( :(
Update: many selfies are creepy. Hope yours is not!
Second update: I dislike overgrown facial hair, excessive tattoos , stained shirts, splitting bills and groping on dates. I prefer clean shaven, clean shirts,no tatoos and leaving your octopus hands at home! Help me believe that chivalry is well and alive! No I don't expect you to put your good coat over some water! I jump
Puddles! But maybe you'd let me have it if i was cold?
If you are here, I appreciate you reading! I hope you have gotten a good sense for who I am :) and if you like who I am , drop me a line! :)
i think early afternoon drinks would be nice. Meeting to say hello and to see if there is any connection as friends or otherwise. Maybe if the conversation is flowing, we can have dinner :) Nothing worst than having to sit through a date when you don't feel you have anything in common with the person in any shape or form. Ugh!
You : no older than 55, educated, employed, relationship minded, not selfish and know what you want . Tall is a plus :)
