How I’m unlike other people…
I have a doctoral degree and I’m a college professor. That means I’m highly educated and goal-oriented, but fortunately I’m still pretty down-to-earth. I’m independent. I’m not looking for a partner because I need one – financially or otherwise- but rather because I envision a partnership as one in which we can add to each other’s lives and make them better overall.
How I’m unlike other women…
I’m willing to use my brain unabashedly. I won’t play stupid to win a man’s heart. I’m also willing to do things like figuring out how to take apart and fix my own washing machine (yes, I really did that).
But at the same time, I can be charmingly feminine and I do a pretty good job of marrying brains and femininity in the same person.
What I hope to find…
…A man who is self-confident, smart (and not necessarily “book-smart”), funny as heck, loyal, honest, and also ready to settle down and possibly start a family. He should be financially responsible, have dreams that he’s achieved and is still working hard to achieve. He should have a strong sense of self, but not be so stubborn so as to be unable to detect when he's wrong (we all are sometimes). He will be my partner – not too domineering, not a pushover – but an equal and devoted to us.
If you don't believe me, perhaps you'll believe my good friend who describes me like this: "She is warm, dynamic, whip smart, and lots of fun! She's definitely a social animal, and adds energy to any room, making her a welcome addition to a party! She's got guts. She seizes the day. She cares about people. She's on my list of people I'd like to have with me if I were stranded on a desert island. She has a great sense of humor and exercises it on a regular basis. She's a great listener, and has that lovely ability to be happy for others' happiness-not seeing happiness as a limited good! When I spend time with her, I'm always left wanting more." I paid her well for that! :)
