A little about Me:
I am a very warm person who is currently working and self supporting. I have a master's degree in fine arts. I am a fine artist and art educator. I guess you could say I am driven, and I'd like someone who's driven to do things too. When I retire from work I won't retire from life. I want to go, do, and see something new every day. I hope to find someone who feels the same way.
I am a spiritual person though not overly religious. I want to find a guy with a spiritual side who has at least some understanding and appreciation for the big-faith questions in life.
It matters to me what side of the aisle my guy is on. I care about the world and what happens to it much more now than I did when I was younger and more self-focused. I'm an environmentalist and healthcare advocate, and I can't imagine a romance with a man who spends time reciting opposite view talking points to me. I want to be upfront about that.
I compromise a lot, but please: no smokers!. None of us look like we're 25 anymore. None of us have quite the energy level we once did. Everyone has some sort of baggage at this age. But I can't compromise on compatibility. I need to feel a sense of ease with my dates. If I don't feel that, it doesn't matter how attractive he is physically or what he brings to the table in other ways. Chemistry: you know it when you feel it.
I do my level best to maintain a healthy life. I eat right, exercise and stay active so I can lead an active life. I'd like my mate to do the same, just so we can be on the same page with our activity levels. Starting out in a new romance, it'd be nice to find a mate with relatively good health.
I prefer to take things slowly. I don't want to feel pressured to meet someone immediately and want to get to know you first.
NO SCAMMERS Please!
