I am a 40-something year old woman who is established professionally (self-employed in the health industry) and who owns her own home (an acreage/hobby farm). Work is what I do to enjoy everything else life has to offer, so I work to live and not the other way around.
I have always enjoyed the company of animals in my life and that is a big part of what makes me tick. I have several pets that are important to me. My acreage is a dream come true in that I can now let them romp around to their heart's content. Because I have a hobby farm, it requires a certain amount of my time on a daily basis, and I see to the farm chores with a smile in my heart. Whomever I meet must be ok with this (and all the better if he actively wishes to join me in doing the chores and spending time with the critters).
I enjoy many aspects of life and living. One of the core values/joys for me is establishing a deep connection with another living being. While I have had this to some extent with my animals, it is with another person that I truly crave this sort of connection. In that respect, people always come before the animals (but not in place of them).
I also enjoy watching movies, fine dining (or dining at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant we've never tried before); light or deep conversation over a glass of wine, a cappuccino, or perhaps a jigsaw puzzle; going for walks either together or in solitude; an occasional outing to the museum or art gallery or symphony; quiet time by the fire; a yummy beef fondue; and so on.
I am looking for a well balanced man who enjoys life, creativity, solitude, time apart as well as time together, animals, and nature. Looking at life from different perspectives is something I value.
I'd prefer that he is self-sufficient and that he enjoys what he does in his career but is not a "workaholic" (i.e., work routinely squeezes out the rest of life living). I also prefer that if he drinks alcohol, it is lightly and not every day (a take it or leave it approach).
He should enjoy the company of pets and find nature and animals interesting (even recharging). My life is heavily entrenched in things related to my critters, so it would be nice, but not "required", if he enjoyed similar interests so that we could do some of it together (e.g.,horseback riding/dressage, agility, walks with the dogs, and so on).
I enjoy romance and time together, and I also need solitude and "down time" to recharge my batteries. He should be someone who has similar preferences, or at least someone who understands this and isn't offended if I prefer to be on my own from time to time (in fact, all the better if he encourages it). I am not at all clingy nor do I do well emotionally if my partner is clingy; I am very independent and I enjoy my own company as much as I enjoy being with the one I love. He should be of the same mindset if we are to have longevity together. Having said that, I do want closeness and intimacy (emotionally, spiritually) ... my independence is not synonymous with coldness or aloofness.
If what I've written here piques your interest, I welcome a message of introduction so that we can see where things might lead. I will respond to all messages. Cheers!
Note: I cannot tolerate cigarette smoke at all, so he should not smoke (and preferably hate smoking).
I'm open to a few different "first dates", such as:
-a bite to eat at a restaurant
-coffee or dessert at a cafe
-going for a walk by the lake
-whatever else suits both of us!
