To start, I am not on POF frequently so I may not respond quickly if you send me a note.
Welcome to my profile!
Over the past 5 years I have really evolved as a person. I have become very open minded, inspired and have grown in many ways. I am attracted to a man who is also open minded, wants to grow and who does not put people in "boxes". He must be open, honest, humble and willing to share with me. I accept the good and the bad and hope that he will do the same.
I am a people person, always wanting to learn, share and connect.
People tell me I am very unique as I have lived on the East Coast, Midwest and the past 11 years here in Cali. You can't stereotype me as I will surprise you again and again.
I am interested in someone who has a passion for either their career, a hobby or a purpose.
I've had a strong interest in dance since I was young. I danced daily since I was about 8. I believe having a talent helps keep kids out of trouble. This was the case for me. I was encouraged by many wonderful mentors whom provided me with inspiration and encouragement.
Personally I really enjoy spending time with friends over tea or cooking. I enjoy movies, making jewelry, fleamarkets, mentoring, designing fashion or assisting photographers as a stylist. I also like travel, camping, biking, hiking and playing boardgames. My partner does not have to share the same interests as me. I hope that he enjoys an active lifestyle. I will support him and hope he will support me through encouragement.
My family is on the East Coast. I have recently grown very close to my parents and each of my 3 sisters. I am lucky to experience this type of growth. I have traveled all over the US many times including a cross country RV trip in 2009. I am looking to travel internationally.
I have accomplished many of my goals. Ideally I would like to find a long term companion to enjoy life with. I am definitely looking for that special connection. Marriage is not a requirement for me however I am not closed off to it either.
Until then I hope to date, make new friends and learn new things. I believe life is a journey so I will try to take something positive away from every encounter and experience. I have a great life with great friends and family therefore this person that becomes my companion should be very special.
My personality is relaxed and I can go with the flow. I once was very anxious and uptight and learned to let go and enjoy life more.
Sometimes I can be nocturnal..darkness inspires me to be creative. I like being surrounded by art and color. I have a large music collection that I play frequently. I like most styles except country and heavy metal. It is important that my partner enjoys music.
What I am looking for...intelligent, some creativity, someone who is expressive and kind to others. I need a strong physical connection. I am usually attracted to men close to my age. I find myself attracted to men who have an athletic build and are not skinny. I am a petite athlete with an athletic career and appreciate a healthy, active lifestyle. Most important..he should be honest and resillient. Life has many challenges so a positive attitude and strong work ethic when things don't work out as planned is key!
It is important that he does not see people in a hierarchy based on career, income, career, ethnicity, sexuality etc. Treating all people with respect shows a person with integrity and confidence at his core.
How I treat my partner
I am loyal and loving but not overbearing. I respect that we all have our preferences in how we accept love & admiration. I would try to understand and appreciate your needs. I consider myself a balanced give/take person. I believe to be a good giver you must also receive. I would hope that we could come together naturally to eat, play, create, share, explore etc..
AND..I love to cook, give massage,
I need affection, honesty and openness.
Bad Stuff about me..
I get "over" creative...make a mess when feeling inspired, I also love to work..it is my passion(have learned to find balance here)Ohh..and I have been told that I am "too direct". I am not so good at interpreting messages given to me that are implied.
It is really important that I am heard. Ignoring my feelings and putting me in a box can upset me. Did I say that I do not like being put in boxes?
I think people can be easily offended online...I may go from being active on POF then off it for a week or two due to an event I am involved with or due to travel or maybe I am dating someone. I am chill and appreciate direct communication. If I have an Ad here on POF then I am dating and I assume you are too. I won't pretend or feel guilt and hope you will appreciate and agree with this view. When I/We find a deep connection then I am sure we will agree to change our online status or our hearts will keep us inactive! I have found that for me it is best to connect slowly..find similar or experience new interests and good communication. I am not interested in someone who uses the internet to date obsessively. Please do not contact me for a "hook up..." or to be a "hook up" girlfriend. I am looking for a mature man, who is a good communicator and who listens to his heart. His action(more than his words) will speak his truth.
If you feel a need to explain that you do not like or trust online dating then I most likely will not respond to you. Dating in general is a risk.
Thanks for reading!
My first date would follow a phone conversation and would be more like a casual meeting. I am practical and like to get to know someone. I would like to go somewhere where we can talk and see how things flow. I am open to developing friendships should we agree to go in that direction. I also think that starting with friendship that progresses is cool.
If there is a mutual interest..maybe grab some dinner...dancing? I also think that going dutch is appropriate with online initial dating.
