I am a woman who is firmly established in her career, is close with her family, and spends a lot of time with friends.
Being a writer, I love meeting new and interesting people. Right now, I am enjoying the life I have built, but I am always looking to add to it--a new friend, a hot fling (fling does not mean one-night stand), or God help me, maybe some romance.
Humor is a big part of my life. I am known as the "funny" and "entertaining" one of my group of friends. Sometimes, my edginess gets a little reckless, but I've got a good head on my shoulders. I might do nutty things but never stupid things.
Much to the surprise of my students, I love heavy metal music, horror novels, thriller television, and am always in search of that movie that can truly scare me (there's only been three so far in my life).
Even though I write fiction, I am very honest. Even online I'm honest. It's kinda sad, really. I am also very direct, so you'll never have to guess with me.
With that in mind, here's what I am "looking for." Would I like to find love? Of course. Am I on the hunt for it? No. But, I am not looking for random, one-night hook-ups. If you are just trying to set up sex for tonight or this upcoming weekend, I am not your girl. If you are trying to establish a booty call that you call once or twice a month, I am not your girl.
Meeting up at a wine bar or pub, hanging out and chatting to ease nerves, and then deciding if we want to grab a bite to eat, just hang out more, walk to a local museum or bookstore (there are lot by where I live). First dates should be planned, but have choices so that the most can be made of my and my date's vibe.
Make me laugh--you're in. Be confident but not condescending--you're in. And I really appreciate a nice guy. That sounds corny, and not the label most men want, but kindness and consideration go a long, long way.
Oh, and be a passionate kisser.
