I'm told I light up a room with my smile. I love to entertain and think I'm a pretty good cook. If I had the luxury of doing what i love most it would have to involve food, entertaining and interior design. Fortunately I do all three solely for pleasure. I'm in advertising and marketing and have worked for myself for the last 15 years.
I have a wonderful 21 year old son I adore, family I cherish and really great friends. I enjoy most kinds of music and love to dance. I do my best to value every day being present and living a drama free, positive lifestyle. Always striving to be a better person. I work at staying in good physical shape however challenging due to my love of great food and wine. I wouldn't say I'm a 10 more like an 8 in training.
The only void I feel is that of a partner. Not someone to complete me LOL! Just that special man who you can sit and read a paper with and not have to be anything but totally at ease and comfortable. I love a man with a good sense of humor, who is kind loyal and thoughtful, loving and sensual.
For the record, the date on my pictures is incorrect. They're not from 2004 but from 2011/2012. I would never lie about my age. I'm comfortable in my own skin and have earned every smile line.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My idea of the perfect first date would be more about making that initial connection.
Beginning our date in a small quiet restaurant. A good bottle of wine, a couple of appetizers to share. Great music playing in the background. Conversation flowing while we get to know as much about each other as one can on a first date. Dancing is always a good way to get a feel for how attracted you are to each other. I find it a perfect way to ease the tension.
In my experience first dates are either butterfly in the stomach exciting or when not compatible, awkward. I'm happy to say I've not experienced a nightmarish first date as yet. But then again I don't just date to date. I would prefer to be out with a good group of friends enjoying each others company then dating for the sake of dating. Don't get me wrong I very much enjoy the company of a man....just not many men available of interest.
