ok, lets keep this short but sweet....I am awesome! and, as you can tell, extremely humble too.:)
I am looking for a quality connection, sparks flying would be great! No rush though, I won't propose to you on our first coffee date..."2 venti vanilla lattes and a wedding ring, please":) Endless business opportunities...I gotta talk to the folks at Starbucks!:)
Sense of humour is a must ( i will make you laugh or your money back!:)) as well as curiosity for the world around us. Respect for others, honesty and good manners are very cool.
I have very limited patience for negativity and try not to allow my life to be affected by it.
I am only mildly interested in material things. They are nice to haves, but don't make up the essence of what I consider vital for a (my) good quality of life. Done the corporate world (international law, marketing, events) and have no desire to go back. That does NOT mean, that I am not driven by what I am passionate about.
I tend to be a bit of a big kid at times (did anybody say ToysRUs???), but have my serious moments too.
I am a good listener - I think...:)
Looooove my acoustic guitar. I suck at it, but i could not care less! My guitar teacher makes a good living off me! And after 2-3 glasses of chilean merlot i sound almost like jimi hendrix!;)
Always looking for a skiing partner. Love going up to Cypress. so convenient!
Absolutely no drugs! (I guess that falls under the "no negativity" provision)
I love languages, but don't ask me to crunch numbers....2+2=5, right??? " On the 7th day, god created the portable calculator" ;) My friends screwed me over at poker when I was little. Lost my entire 5$ allowance for the month...True story! Must have left a permanent trauma....:(
I am proud of my accomplishments in life yet humbled by how much there is still left to learn and do.
PS: ok, I realize the world has bigger problems to solve and probably not top on Obama's to do list tight now, but what is up with those little stickers on single apples? Is that really such a brilliant idea??? so annoying to peel off! what is next? stickers on grapes or blueberries??? oh, and somebody on here suggested peanuts. Love that idea!:)

And myself and I seem to agree
That the best thing for you would be me"

I'll meet you anytime you want In our Italian Restaurant."
