I'm an attractive, petite, sassy and intelligent woman who has decided she's been alone long enough. I'm not lonely as I have a terrific group of friends but I've decided it's time for this independent lady to focus on finding and bringing a quality man in to my life. Sometimes a little shy at the outset, but once I get comfortable...watch out! I'm fit not fat and enjoy my time in the gym; especially kickboxing, spinning and Pilates. I have a highly creative streak and am a hobbyist gourmet cook and baker. Summer is my season and I can always be found out and about tooling around or hanging at the beach. My family (which includes 2 cats) and friends mean the world to me so you eventually have to pass muster to stay in my life! I love being an auntie and "rent" my nieces and nephews as often as I can so you'll need to adore children to be in my life! Although I wasn't fortunate enough to have children and now I'm past the age to have my own, yours are absolutely fine! My personality is best described as: Artistic, Flirtatious/Playful, Friendly/Kind, Sensitive/Nurturing/Loving, Practical, Romantic, Self Confident, Serious/Responsible.
Some of my favorite things.... summer, tan lines, sunrise, white tulips, Italian food, creme brulee, champagne and strawberries, a good merlot, a toe curling kiss (just seeing if you are paying attention), the color red, NCIS (and Mark Harmon), and lastly - hopefully you!
I'm seeking an attractive, well-educated (at minimum, a bachelor's degree), fit man who understands we are a couple but do not have to be in one another's pocket 24 x 7. He understands honesty is the base of any true relationship and is willing and able to be open about who he is and what he seeks/needs in a relationship. He looks great in a suit and fabulous in jeans! He understands what it is to romance a woman and not just on the calendar's special days and he isn't flustered when receiving in return. He is passionate about the things he believes in and enjoys a lively debate with a woman who isn't afraid to express her opinions. I am strong in personality; he is stronger. He shows affection in public but others aren't thinking we should "get a room". He enjoys live theater, great food, dinner parties with friends (I'll cook if he cleans up : ), Disney, the beach, warm climates and snuggling at home by the fireplace. He likes working out, is close to his family and loyal to friends. Ultimately, I am seeking the man with whom I want the first date to go on...and on...and on (wink)!
***Sorry- if you are married (and separated is still married), have no desire to exit on-line dating sites even if you meet that special someone, live to ride your harley, think tattoos and piercings are art, are also interested in dating 20 something year olds, or if you are young enough that I could be your mama, we aren't a good match.
