This is a bit long-winded, but I feel it is important to lay my cards on the table so we don't waste each other's time... I recently arrived to Tucson and commenced "snow-birding". I plan to live/work here Falls, Winters and early Springs and then live/work in NW, ID late Springs and Summers. Reason being that I am sensitive to extremes in climate, i,e. hot, cold, dry and humid. My preference is to reside year-round in NW, ID as the cold is not too extreme and it is a breath-taking beautiful, not heavily populated, wilderness area, however, work has been scarce there Falls and Winters. I would like to resolve that by setting myself up financially with a good career at which point I would no longer reside in Tucson. But I am flexible and open to new opportunities depending on whether the favorable factors out-weigh the unfavorable. I am a kind, gentle, considerate, compassionate, intelligent, fun-loving, middle-aged woman. I am Tall, medium,curvy build with a few pounds to lose (30-40 to be exact) to look and feel my best (am getting good results with healthy diet and daily exercise). I am creative and love the arts. I like to write, read, sing (was a pro-singer in my day), watch movies, go to plays and concerts, create healthy edibles, travel, talk with friends about every subject imaginable, share interesting personal anecdotes, deep-seated beliefs, ideas and be a sounding board to help resolve dilemmas. Currently I work in the Hospitality Industry, however, I am working towards a career as a Life Coach with the goal of helping folks get healthy/fit mentally, spiritually, emotionally and spiritually. And someday in the not too distant future, I want to manage my own Bed and Breakfast with a unique Cafe/Gallery, featuring my specialty confections and other edibles and Open Mike and Poetry Nights. My Ideal situation for an intimate relationship with the opposite gender is as follows: Initially create a sound friendship as the building block for a long-term intimate relationship. Then with that established, I want a soul-mate, friend, partner, lover, husband all in one. One with whom we share mutual attraction, interest, admiration and respect and who is compatible with me, i.e. kind, gentle, considerate, compassionate, intelligent, fun-loving and middle-aged, tolerant of my climate issues, and who has similar interests, likes and dislikes. With that we would happily spend the rest of the days of our lives together and support/help each other in our various endeavors and be the President of one another's "Fan Club".
