I am generally attracted to funny, goodhearted and kind, highly educated men. I love to laugh, (and cry too).
My friends would describe me as loving, understanding, and deep. I'm a girlie girl so I've been told, but am also down to earth, and balanced -- unless I'm standing on one foot. I love being showered with love and affection, and am quite cuddly.
What am I looking for? I love a sense of humor, I think it helps carry us through this life. If you possess deep humility and confidence, I find that admirable. I don't like dishonesty and sneakiness. I appreciate those with a sense of decency. Also with the right man, my protective shell can be penetrated with time, and I can be very vulnerable and authentic.
I am a mom to some wonderful dogs, one is a therapy dog that helps recovering patients in hospitals feel happier.
I seek someone who is emotionally healthy and open, WANTS to be in a committed relationship, and is financially healthy (no repo man visits or back tax collectors, ok?). After all, a relationship should create joy in our lives, not drag us down, right? We both should have the maturity to work through things, and see things to resolution. I am compassionate and kind. I also have worked hard to be baggage free. So if you have an unsettled life with your exes, kids, finances, or emotional unavailability, then move on please.
I don't do conversations through chats or texts, it generally has not led to anything productive for me. I am NOT looking for long term pen pals. A few email exchanges are fine, but if it does not progress to a good ol' phone calls by either side, and meeting in person, we'll peter out.
Please be truthful with your info before you consider writing me. Lying about basic stuff like age, education, kids etc. won't help build trust from the onset. I've been truthful with my info.
Dinner and talk, getting to know each other in a place not too loud. Hopefully memorable and fun conversation, keep in mind the power of first impression. Not too big on sitting over a cup of coffee or drink date.
