The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about travelling, whether it's just a weekend away or a two week adventure someplace. There's always something new to learn wherever you are. Learning is important to me and travelling is a constant adventure of the senses.
I typically spend my leisure time
Since I'm new to Dallas, I've been exploring a lot and just trying to develop a network of people to know.
The most influential person in my life has been
Kind of hard to identify just one thing unless it's just plain old chemistry which is really a combination of the definable like intelligence, humor, great listener and the undefinable which links all those together into physical and emotional attraction.
The first thing people notice about me
Being so tall, I've never really faded into the background and think I've overcompensated to try and make people feel comfortable around me...so maybe I'm a "short person" in a "tall person's body!" People would say I'm friendly, I like listening to and telling good stories, I ask lots of questions and I'm probably friendlier than I appear.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm always reading several different books at one time. I travel quite a bit so I'm always looking for "plane reading" stuff like "The Da Vinci Code" and when I'm home more headier stuff like Bill Clinton's autobiography or The Four Agreements. I'm one of those who reads all the magazines in the waiting rooms of every doctor and dentist I visit and then some.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My friendships. I've moved several times in the past decade and I've managed to keep up my friendships and meet new ones.
- I'm thankful my parents are still alive and doing relatively well.
- I'm thankful I'm working in a field I like and that it's given me a chance to explore the world.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Just because I'm tall doesn't mean I'm strong! You wouldn't believe how many people ask me to lift their luggage into the overhead bins on airplanes! Even the flight attendants!
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Good listener, Intelligent, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I'm not into dating just for the sake of dating. At this age, been there done that, so while I enjoy meeting new people, I do hope to stop dating at some point in my life!! Also, something I feel I need to add here, is I'm not into hunting, guns or pistol shooting, so if you own those or those are hobbies of yours, please find someone who shares those interests.
