There are some who live a vicarious life by watching soap operas. I am not one of them.
Don't mind hard work - physical or mental. Very positive can-do lifestyle. Not neurotic or afraid of today and tomorrow. I am enjoying the journey. Responsible yet not your average "Patty Pot Roast". My cuisine like my life is varied, spontaneous, adventurous and grounded.
Left after graduating college to live and work in CT and NYC for a major record label promoting artists. Made my career in the entertainment field and took those skills forward to start my own business.
Love jazz, classic rock, Southern rock, new music, blue grass, classical and big band. I'll always be a Motown girl. Love soul and gots soul. Not your smooth jazz, soft adult contemporary, elevator music or music to die by - companion.
Feel at home in museums, live theatre, dance and poetry festivals. I am a city, suburban and rural girl. I enjoy dressing up as much as I enjoy dressing in my gardening clothes or bathing suit. Love to wear jewelry when I am out and hate to wear jewelry when I am home. Just really comfortable in my own skin.
Like to golf, hike, dance, swim, ski, travel, explore, garden and work out.
My yard has the big CT rocks used for farm fences years ago. It is fun landscaping with them. Sure beats staying inside lifting dumbbells or weight machines.
Would be great to have a loving relationship with a person that has the qualities I value most: kindness, considerate, enjoys being with their family and friends, honest, innate warm personality and a great sense of humor.
A partner who wants to continue to learn new things, wants to explore and still wants to discover the world. All the above includes has a beautiful creative and business mind, enjoys art in all mediums, supports the arts and does some volunteer work or supports charities financially.
Love is a gift and it is meant to be shared. Our physical connection is paramount to a healthy loving relationship. Passion makes a great relationship fantastic. I want the want.
I believe 1 - 3 dates establishes there is a mental and physical attraction. I don't believe any defined commitment can be based on 2 - 3 dates. The transition from lust to love can only be achieved when both of us feel it in our hearts and believe it in our minds and any type of committment doesn't happen overnight.
I still live a very active life. Running my own business and really loving it. My sons are young adults; 18 & 26. The older just graduated college in May and moved back from SF, September '14 and has already landed a job in NYC. My younger son is a senior in high school and lives with me. He will be heading to college 9/15 at which point I will be an empty nester.
It would be best to meet someone who also has a busy active life.
If you are retired or coasting in a job you really don't care about, one foot on the platform waiting it out until you can retire, kids are gone and you need someone there by your side - I am NOT your girl.
My hope is you've read this and said, "me too" and you are looking for someone like me!
