I relocated from California to Seminole August 2015. I called California my home for 18 years, and it will always hold a place in my heart. I miss frequenting some of the most amazing spots on the planet such as Tahoe, Big Sur and Yosemite. Please don't assume because I lived in CA that I am the typical CA stereotype. I am actually pretty conservative....middle of the road with a lean to the conservative side.
I teach fitness classes as a hobby (BodyPump, Insanity, and cycle), in addition to working a full-time job. Teaching is a huge part of my life. I get a charge out of helping members meet their fitness goals, as well as overcome other obstacles in their lives through fitness. They remind me that fitness isn't always about what you see improving on the outside, but how it feeds the soul and mind. I am honored that they allow me to be a part of their journey, and realize I learn as much from them as they do from me. My full time job is for a medical technology company. I’ve been with them since 1997, and love what I do, and the people I work with. I support a region of salesmen, and help them with the “back office” stuff to help them close their deals. I have my own home that I've been remodeling, and love being out in my yard when it's not too hot outside. I also volunteer for an animal shelter, and am on the board for an autism awareness group.
In a relationship, I’m loyal, and take my relationships seriously once I am committed. I believe physical closeness is as important as emotional closeness, and while I won’t ask you to “talk about your feelings” on a constant basis, I am here to listen when you need an ear. I’m not jealous, nor possessive, so if you need some space, feel free to take it. I believe that couples need time apart to recharge, and to allow each person to maintain their identity. It takes me a bit to "warm up" to someone new, but I promise if you bear with me, it will be worth the wait.
I have a good life and am financially secure, and while I don't NEED a man, I won't deny that there are certain things that only a good man can provide me. I'm looking for a man who is a bit old-fashioned (I love men with manners), social, independent, and who is secure in his career. I do not date smokers (not even what you may call "occasional" or vaping), heavy drinkers, and/or men with no job or no steady job.
Let's start slow, have fun, and allow a friendship to build while an amazing romance unfolds. I believe that relationships take work and communication, and the best ones are those that are built over time. Please be as accurate as possible in your profile. Mine is current, as are my photos. Thanks for understanding.
