Updated note: If you are just looking to cam or trade pictures move on.....OR, if you are making the duck face in your pics...please, please don't email me!!
I am extremely busy with my career and education, but I do like to take time for me. I am a college professor who recently received my PhD. I teach several business courses, but most frequently teach: business law, organizational leadership, macroeconomics, and microeconomics. As you can see, education and gaining knowledge are integral parts of my life. I want a partner who also believes that knowledge is essential.
I love to travel in my free time. One of my most frequent choices is Vegas. I enjoy tropical locations and cruises as well. I would love to go back to Jamaica. Internationally, I have been to Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco,Honduras, Mexico, Grand Cayman, Bahamas, and Jamaica. I really would love to do more travel that is international and want a partner that enjoys travel and adventure. On occasion, I have been known to Karaoke. (Even when sober lol). I like spending time with friends, movies, dining out, roller coasters, camping, and adventure.
I am looking for someone who is adventurous, intelligent, witty, sarcastic (sarcasm is a sign of intelligence), educated and who wants is looking for a long-term relationship.
My biggest pet peeves include people that are unwilling to help themselves, liars, drama queens/kings and poor grammar.
What I am looking for in a man can't be summed up here but I can say that intellect is the most important factor on my list. If I can't have a great conversation with someone, why would I want to spend time with them? Education is incredibly important to me. My profile says I want someone with a degree and I really do mean it. If you are not at least currently enrolled in college and actively seeking an actual degree (and I don't mean your first class ever), I am not interested. I prefer someone with no children, although dependent on situation this is not a deal-breaker.
If my friends had to describe me they would tell you my good points are that I am funny, smart, compassionate, intelligent, sarcastic, and silly. They would tell you that my bad points (yep, I have some) are that I am sometimes bossy and stubborn :-P I believe everyone has his or her faults and that there is no perfect person for me. I am looking for someone that makes me want to spend my time with him and to grow with him.
**NOTE** I am not looking for sexual encounters. I still believe that the term dating is indicative of going out and getting to know one another and that dating is not synonymous with "hooking up." Also, don't waste your time or mine trying to convince me that although you don't meet what I am looking for that I don't know what I am missing. I know what I want and I won't settle. Maybe this sounds harsh, but why waste anyone's time?
I am looking for someone who is looking to date, not just a one-nighter. I think that dates should be based on mutual interest, not necessarily the same for any two people. I do enjoy fine dining because it gives you time to talk casually.
