I enjoy all music, (except most of country) clubbing, dancing, dining, traveling and many things that I have neglected for a long time due to working long hours. I enjoy museums, browsing antique stores, the zoo, beaches anywhere, the ballet, live theater, and would love to snorkel again in the Caribbean, again touch the velvet underbelly of a stingray in the Caymans, return to Xtapa or Jamaica, but would love to visit Costa Rica for the first time, a place I have considered retiring with the right person.
I do have a pet, a darling rescue Chiwinnie, not the yappy sort. She has a precious and loving personality, not unlike her mommy. (Me).
I am a very hard working paralegal. Although I have an Associate degree in my field, I have done a lot of college work beyond my degree.
I am seeking an educated, articulate, sincere, professional, reasonably handsome, (attractiveness parity) honest man with whom I can spend quality time. I want a best friend, a cheerleader, a safe haven. I will be the same to you.
I plan to take the time to do some traveling in the coming year and going forward to places in the world I have yet to see.
I wish to bring into my life an affectionate, demonstrative man with whom I have a chemistry that can lead to a fulfilling mental and physical connection. But isn't that why we are all here? I want a man who is communicative, I do not want to guess what is going on with us. Do we click? Do we not click?
If I feel an attraction and you do not, be forward and honest so that we can both move on to finding that right connection. I will do the same for you.
We all have some baggage. I have mine but my baggage is being left at the station as I move forward.
Just do not let your baggage interfere with a relationship that we might have.
I do not wish to spend weeks on the phone or messaging before a first meeting.
October 21, 2013 UPDATE:
I just caught Judge Judy while working. Judge Judy just said something, while amusing, is also very sad. Judge Judy said that those on internet dating sites are up to one of three things, Courting, Conning, or they are Pervs. I have spoken with some who were Pervs on this and other dating sites, dated a few who made efforts at Courting which did not succeed, have been Conned only in the sense that some presented themselves falsely.
Only those interested in Courting need apply for my attention.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For a first meeting, dinner and drinks would be preferable.
