I am a professional, fun and down to earth girl looking for fun romantic gentlemen that know how to treat a lady. These days it's hard to find men who are old fashioned and that defy the idea that chivalry is dead. I would like a guy that likes to go out on dates but also be ok with staying home and cuddling up to a movie at times (like everyone else says they want, right?). He should be extremely loyal just as I am and know just what to do to put a smile on my face. A sense of humor is a must too as I am pretty sarcastic and want someone who can take it as well as dish it. Another important characterisitc that I am looking for is someone who is able to communicate effectively. If the communication isn't very good in a relationship, there's not much room for growth.
I love art and I love working with kids. I have a yellow lab, Annie and a 15lb mutt named thor, and I get to bring them to work every day. They're my companions for now and cuddle with me. However, they still don't take the place of a warm body next to you at night holding you in their arms. You must be ok (preferably Love) dogs and are ok with spoiling them! :) I work pretty hard but I'm ok with it because I love what I do... most of the time. I love more of the teaching rather than the business aspects. I'm a spontaneous person and am always down for a trip anywhere. I am not a materialistic girl like some of the women tend to be in OC.
I am honest (sometimes too honest), loyal, creative, straight forward, and genuine. I know what I want in life (in terms of guys and other areas) so I'm not into playing games or just casual dating. Granted I need time to get to know someone and don't want to meet someone and then have them be my boyfriend the next day, but I am looking for more than just dating around. I love cuddling so being a spooner is imperative! :)
Although I've dated a variety of men I usually tend to be attracted to taller men with an athletic or stocky build that tend to be on the preppy side. And I'm sorry but guys with a bunch of tattoos/piercings just doesn't do it for me. They always say you can't help who you fall in love with sometimes!
