I'm tall, caring and affectionate with a strong sense of humor. Down-to-earth; never pretentious. I'm told that I'm fun, easy going & able to express well. Seeking an all-weather man; no fair-weather boys, please. Life has ups & downs, let's be realistic and honest. Respect & romance will keep us together.
My type keeps in shape & is likely taller than 5'9". I'm not a fitness freak but I respect a man who cooks fresh foods & takes care of himself.
Prefer no colognes or very mild at most.
I am progressive & prefer someone with an open mind. No right-wing tea party or anti-government types, please. While I recognize our democracy has some definite flaws, I work for our golden state and value what all levels of government seek to accomplish for a nice quality of life. Not into gov-bashing which is unusual, I know. Everyone loves to hate Gov, right? ;)
Fun activities & interests include food & wine appreciation, travel, hiking, camping, art, music, film.
I'd love to dine at the French Laundry one day.
I'd prefer to meet after a few messages rather than be pen pals, please. I am not interested in "booty callers" or those who only text & email to avoid meeting. Face to face is the best way to see if any chemistry & to avoid scammers.
