My love is not a gift just randomly given out to just anyone in passing.I seek a love to match my own, a mutual goal of understanding.
My religious beliefs and my faith in God have carried me through some tough times in my life.God is at the top of my list, followed by family and friends.
I love staying fit; I’ll work out at the gym, take long walks, engage in hiking or biking. I am mostly into live/raw foods such as vegetables, fruits and wheatgrass to sustain my healthy lifestyle. Flea markets and antique shops draw me – I love the search for the unique! I’ll wonder through museums, go to concerts and wineries, and love reading and cuddling on rainy days.
I love to relax with a good book on a rainy afternoon, and lose myself in the story!
I enjoy traveling whether it’s a day trip or one that takes me on the other side of the world. A day trip to Palm Springs, or a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway is always relaxing. I have lived in Paris, France as a child and into my early teens and would like to revisit it in the future.
About the one I'm looking for...
“Your understanding of truth is in direct relation to your ability to love.” – James Cisneros.
I place high values on loyalty and trust. When we have faith in each other as friends first, every trial or problem we encounter will be heard, accepted and understood by both of us. I think the way we present ourselves in the beginning of a relationship should be the way we treat each other always. Affection is key in keeping two people together! To keep the love on fire both partners should make an effort to show their feelings for each other on a daily basis. My ideal mate believes in these ideas, and has a chivalrous and passionate side. He is careful about his commitments, and he keeps his word. I am looking for a life long committed relationship with a very special gentlemen. I would like to find a man who wants to embark on this type of journey together with me. He wants a best friend first; someone with whom he is comfortable and genuine with.I am seeking a man who is selective with his heart, and who wants a love to match his own. Having a great sense of humor and healthy lifestyle and eating habits is a plus. I prefer tone athletic men who are into hiking and outdoor activities. None-Smokers Only Please!!!!
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy all types of music, especially jazz; crab cakes and Alaskan salmon, ; My favorite scriptual verse is Philippians’’ Chapter 4: verses 11-13.
I am a special education teacher; I work primarily with students with Learning Disabilities. I am also the Special Education Coordinator for my school. At the present time I am completing my dissertation for my doctorate in Educational Leadership/Higher Education.
"Hey there, You with the smile in your eyes"...I thought I would say hello to all my possible potential suitors instead of merely passing by in silence. In order not to waste your time and effort, I would prefer that special someone be within the California area but will make considerations for that special guy in case it happens to be "YOU"!!!;; ;. Relocation is a possibility for me. Having more of a physical proximity to someone that I am passionate about is important to me. I believe that sharing all that we are is the essence of a relationship ,finding another who can appreciate what we are inside is surely worth more than gold. I would also kindly ask that legally separated not pursue a contact until your divorce is final. Thank you for the interest and good luck in your search."
I RESPOND TO MESSAGES, NOT FLIRT!!!
