I believe that when you see relationships that have lasted, you are seeing long-lasting friendship. I am physically fit, energic and spontaneous. I am known to wear my heart on my sleeve and am compassionate and affectionate, believing that physical touch is essential in any relationship. I am looking for that one special bond that ties, my best friend. I like to think that I am fun to be around, and have a compassionate side that sometimes takes over my common sense. Being professionally employed as an office manager for a law firm, I am comfortable in high heels as well as hiking boots and sneakers. My favorite past times include hiking, playing outside, traveling (even though I haven't done much, the dream is Ireland) , listening to music (eclectic taste) , and more. . . . Dolphins and chocolate are two favorites. I am an old-fashioned romantic. Sitting in front of an outdoor fireplace with a glass of wine and a special person is perfect for me. I do not have a list of standards that I am looking for. Who can explain the chemistry part of relationships, but am looking for a partnership, friendship, and all the components of a relationship, unconditional trust, honesty, integrity, and faithfulness, but most importantly, a partner to travel the path of the Lord's word with. Everyday is a new journey, with new lessons the He gives us, and I really look forward to the shared journey.
