Life is filled with true friends, good times, a wonderful family and a small dog with a BIG DOG personality. Travel is an integral part of my life and has been for over 20 years. My office soars above the Earth, exposes me to different cultures, diverse lifestyles, scenic wonders, politicians, "average Joe's" and celebrities. I race around the globe...stopping here and there for a moment, a day or longer. I cultivate new friends, experience things I never would have imagined and learn priceless facts and lesson that can't be measured. There is never a dull or repetitious day. Changes are constant. Along with the globetrotting comes exhaustion. Jet lag, a body clock which constantly needs to be reset and time away when I'd rather be home or spending time with someone special...but as in all things.. the good and bad go together. No career is perfect, perhaps just perfect for us. What started as a job has become a lifestyle...allowing me to be gone as much or as little as possible..travel to places of my choice or dreams.. live anywhere in the world I choose as long as an airport is nearby to whisk me away to work when that time comes. With that freedom comes a necessity for a relationship's cornerstone to be trust, independence and support...content to be apart when my job beckons and thrilled when it brings us together.
With maturity comes reality. I am not looking for a perfect man with a perfect body. Rather, a man who takes care of himself by exercising and eating healthy (most of the time). A man who has the same values and morals, who enjoys the same lifestyle and who has similar interests and commonalities. Ideally, he'd enjoy the outdoors, especially water activities (boating/sailing/snorkeling/scuba diving), tennis and horses. He'd be willing to try new activities and venture off the beaten path. He'd have patience to teach me new things, a curiosity to learn something outside his comfort zone and a willingness to accept that we might not always agree on everything or want to spend our free time the same way.
I do not enjoy conflict, yet am not a conflict avoider. I prefer to resolve things quickly and get back on solid ground. I do not tolerate tempers, argumentative personalities or abusive behavior. Added to those deal breakers are smokers, infidelity and the necessity to have the "last word". My friends have diverse personalities and backgrounds and I am comfortable in any social situation and can add something of value to most conversations. I believe in old fashioned values and prefer the man to be the head of the household. That being said, I don't want to "be ruled". My ideal partner would be honest and loyal, dependable (a man of his word and there when he says he will be), flexible with schedules and ideas. He'd be willing to help plan activities and vacations, show a romantic side and enjoy affection. He'd be compassionate and empathetic. Like me, he'd be financially stable and debt free.
I'm fun loving, funny, quick witted, loyal and a true friend. My friends and family are important to me and I value them highly. I enjoy the theater, most types of music and love to sing. I enjoy entertaining and an occasional spur of the moment trip. i am spontaneous and adapt well to change. I love animals and enjoy the pleasure that they bring to my life.
Life is meant to be shared...I'm ready...are you?
