I'm an eclectic, animated, expressive, creative woman. I'm interested in meeting someone who is confident and both a listener and a talker, someone who knows that it's not about being right, it's about being open.
You're well-groomed (short nails - there, I've said it!), thoughtful, considerate, reliable, interested in at least pretending to dance, like most foods and are willing to try new ones, and you can be corrupted around the right dessert...you have some baggage and you're ok to talk about it.
I am very understanding - LIFE HAPPENS. Being a student of life, I strive for authenticity, consideration, integrity. Grace and gratitude are right up there too. What I mean is, say what you will do, do what you will say, and if something falls through the cracks, have the consideration to keep me in the loop and out of the dark.
I want fun and joy. And trust and sharing.
In many ways, I am a nurturer. So I express appreciation and I enjoy recognition and acknowledgement (giving and getting). Ultimately, I hope to find intimacy - the strength and 'guts' to be open, to ask for help, to give AND take.
I am a communicator - high on perception. We create with our words, so you will find me striving for clarity, synergy, collaboration, conversation... If we rely on non-verbal language, we won't get the real message. Better to say it "wrong" than to leave it unsaid, whatever it is!
I love travel and have enjoyed some amazing experiences in Europe, the Caribbean, cruising. In fact, had I won last night's lottery, I'd be winging my way to South Africa or somewhere equally beautiful even as I write this.
If you're powerful, great. If you're accomplished, terrific. If not, that's ok too. Either way, if you are looking for a woman with a sense of humour, a sharp wit, an intriguing intellect and a loving, adventurous approach to life, this could be a good place to start.
Comfortable conversations first plus gut feel will narrow down the options. A generic coffee is safe. Dinner and dancing is more risky. Brunch is nice because you can extend it into the rest of the day, or end it gracefully if desired. Then again, if you wish to fly to Barcelona for tapas in your private jet, I could be convinced of that too!
