Balance is a key quality in
my life as symbolized by the yin/yang of
As such, I span a broad range, and I'd prefer someone who understands that
most things can be appropriate at different times.
I describe myself
as adventurous and romantic,
strong and gentle, playful, fun and mature, spiritual, fit, and
a non-smoker. I'm fairly deep, intelligent, observant,
reflective, soft-spoken, and 'sweet' (I've been
I like to do lots of different things:
wine and dining,
exploring and day trips, hiking, sailing, movies, window
shopping, fairs, social cooking, snuggling, kissing--sharing
life with one special person!
To provide a few specifics about myself...
- I'm 5'9, 170; I run almost every day.
- I was raised with manners--open doors, say please/thank you etc.
- I am not a neatnik but not horribly messy either.
- NOT a Type A! I do love organization, but I'm too lazy to implement it!
- I *have* a tux but usually wear jeans.
- I love gourmet or can just as easily eat at BK but prefer anything
- I prefer many long weekends over one big trip (unless it's Italy or
- I am a TV/movie type person; don't read much except for politics or
- I listen to NPR in the afternoon and Stern in the morning.
- I'm 50% Yin or Omega vs 50% Alpha or Yang.
All in all, a mixed bag of a lot of different things
For the astrologically curious
, I am a Scorpio
Moon, Mercury in Sagittarius, Venus in Libra, and Mars in
Scorpio. I'd be happy to do yours if you're interested
:) For those who don't already know, you really need to look at
all 9 planets to see the individual beyond the broad generalization
of your sun sign (well, at least 5 planets!)
Some things from my past:
used to own a motorcycle; taught at a sailing camp on Cape Cod;
owned a 31' sailboat; took flying lessons; skydived--3
times; rode horses well--competed in dressage; spent one night
in jail (for an old, unpaid speeding ticket); have driven down
the Cote d'Or of France in October; and sailed around the
BVI's, and have participated in a few different 'seminars'
over the years including Tony Robbins, Insight, Creating
Success, MSIA, Reiki, and meditation at the Omega Institute.
I have two wonderful teen boys
, 18 & 20,
whom I love and adore; and I also appreciate my time and
freedom of not *always* having them (hard for some people to
understand). I've been through two marriages now: one
22yrs ago for 8yrs; then 10yrs passed before another one for
4yrs. Since everybody asks, I had met someone online over
7yrs ago--a doctor from Venezuela; she moved here and we got
married, and then one day she told me that we got married too
quickly because of visa requirements, so here I am, starting
all over again.
Why am I here? I am seeking
a happy, healthy,
loving relationship, full of passion, play, and contentment
with a beautiful woman whom I adore and respect. I
don't 'date around'
and would prefer to
find one special person to spend my life with. I am determined
and patient to find the right match, but I dearly miss the
intimacy, sharing, support, and companionship that two people
can give to each other. In fact I've had less than a handful of
1st dates in the last 10 months. It's too easy to get into 'a'
relationship and it's such a waste of time if it's not someone
you' re going to spend the rest of your life with. Why invest
so much and then just have to start all over again??
WHAT I'M DOING WITH MY LIFE
I love to explore, visit, day trips,
even window shop new places. I like to go out to dinner at
least one night per week and then some event or activity every
other weekend such as to visit Manayunk, Baltimore, or DC, and
I have my two boys, 18 & 20, over every other weekend and
one night a week. I love movies, so I'll watch a couple per
week--subscriber of Netflix. I am gainfully employed and also
own a small startup company online. I work a regular
One interesting little project that I just finished is
translating a friend's book from Spanish for publication in
English called La Ley Universal de la Atraccion y La
Travesia de Maite
interesting subject matter! In fact, it's now available on
Universal Law of Attraction - Maite's Journey of Discovery
I'M REALLY GOOD AT
- seeing all sides of a debate;
- blending in diverse settings;
- learning anything by watching someone do it;
- getting to the true essence of a person and understanding their view;
- helping to solve problems and optimize;
- avoiding things I have to do :)
- lightening up (balancing) intense moments;
- connecting very deeply with one special person;
- committing to one special person!

in lines; why not go out on a Tuesday or Thursday and get right in?!
THE MOST PRIVATE THING I'M WILLING TO ADMIT HERE
I've actually had cat
scratch fever once; it wasn't
really anything much--just swollen glands and it passed in a few days (many
I use composite astrology to predict, with
amazing accuracy and insight, how a relationship will probably
go with a potential mate. So far they've always proved to
be 100% accurate! I'll be happy to do a composite profile
for you and a relationship you have or had; just send me two
