I am a down-to-earth girl, who is confident, resilient, spontaneous, well travelled, and has a nurturing spirit. I consider myself ambitious and am content to have found a career and enjoy it thoroughly. I strive to attain a balance in my life but it does continue to be a challenge and I am not afraid to admit that but I make time for what is important to me. I am very loyal to my kindred, and am drawn to the same qualities in people. I maintain a healthy lifestyle but am no model out of a magazine nor do I desire to be. I am aligned to being quite realistic with the expectations the media try to impose on us and try and instill the 'realistic and right ones' in myself, those whom I am close with and more importantly in my children all the time. I am incredibly close to my family and look forward to having a special guy be part of it always.
That said, this special guy should be humble and ambitious himself. He is a great conversationalist and is willing to share his life experiences and express the same interest in mine. He wont be afraid of taking appropriate risks and decisions with both his personal and professional life at the appropriate times. He is 'content' with himself, appreciates beauty inside and out and maintains a healthy lifestyle himself. He is strong, is aware about balancing his opinions but is not afraid to share disappointments, lend a shoulder to lean on or admit when he's wrong. He is family oriented and appreciates time with his friends and family but knows when to detach himself from those umbilical responsibilities or obligations. I strongly believe there is a time and place for everything and everyone.
Very simply, I appreciate if you have pets however, I dont have pets of my own, and not in a position to have or adopt any in this practical phase of my life. If this is a problem, I can understand and I am positive that you will find a pet-lover in another, deserving girl.

A first-date or giving a phone number isnt something that cant entirely be determined right from the time you connect with person virtually. It has to be mutual. And yes, a dynamic chemistry can be acquired by bypassing the entire overrated first date! It can mean by chatting on IM or simply connecting over the the phone? It can also mean that a series of fantabulous and meaningful conversations can take place over sharing an iced-coffee (yummy), tea (I do like herbal), an informal bite to eat or a stroll in a public place. Its more like how can get to know one another better, feel comfortable, and actually indulge in some treats, or not ;-)
A first date will naturally take place if it needs to.
