My friends and family know me to be adventurous, affectionate, intelligent, honest and even-tempered. One of the best compliments I have received is that I am a "team player" in a relationship... and (even if romance did not develop) a good listener and friend. I have had several serious relationships, and been engaged more than once. Being a "professional student" for many years (two master's degrees) didn't help!
I am especially attracted to a tall man (>6'0") who is physically fit and active, and who is financially stable (as I am). He will know Who to thank for the stars above us (hopefully there will also be stars between us)! I attend church quite regularly - I play the piano- so it would be good if he also enjoys church. He would understand that people tend to be "religious" about anything that is important in their lives, and that it is very possible to be both spiritual AND religious.
Kind and patient men are also attractive to me, because it takes time to learn about each other and grow a friendship based on respect and trust. I am open to the idea of marriage, although it seems like a lot of hard work - unless you marry a very good friend! I admit to being a sensual woman, and I want a man who also desires and is able to have a physical relationship. However, I have learned (from experience) that if you skip ahead to sexual involvement before a solid friendship has been built it is impossible to back up and build it later. Romance is best when it results from "friendship that catches fire". Romance without the foundation of friendship is fantasy (and one that quickly evaporates in difficult times).
Online profiles, even if photos are included, provide only a blurred sketch of the incredibly complex human who wrote it. Spending time together is essential to knowing each other, and I therefore prefer to concentrate on men whose distance from me is not a major barrier. Also, to save time on either side, I should mention that I will not respond to messages from men who are less than 6 feet tall (this is MY problem - please don't make it yours!), who smoke, or who do not have a photo posted.

Favorite colors? I love them all, but usually wear the warmer colors like red, peach, gold & green because they look better on my skin.
