I am a complex network of fuses ignited by stimuli: art, color, design, passion, compassion, theory, ingenuity, creativity, sound, no sound, touch, sincerity, depth, intellect, simplicity, grace, excellent raw energy, self control to chocolate? No control!
Don't be afraid.... This is NOT a list of do's and don'ts.
Anyway, a little about myself.. I'm an artist. It's my passion to cultivate emotion in others through my paintings. I love provoking people to feel what I felt during my experience of creating a piece. I recently just took up kiln-formed glass as well. You basically design and embellish glass and then fire it in a kiln. It's pretty bad ass. I'm actually just starting to get some notoriety locally for my glass work and techniques. I sold out of a few shows and was interviewed for the newspaper. Good stuff! Which brings me to why I'm trying online dating: Right now I'm completely devoted to building my glass business and increasing revenue. I eat, breathe, and sleep my work right now. I'm also going to school full time and trying to pull a major in Fine Art. I still would like to find someone to spend my spare time with, and if we really click I would eventually make more time. Anyway, I'm a very strong willed person. I do not have a weak soul. I have full possession of myself and I own my mistakes and my weaknesses, and at the same time I value my assets and I know my worth. I have yet to find a man who is strong enough to keep me. I admit I can be a little difficult and a hand full at times but I am far more rewarding and worth it.... If you are worthy, hehe.. I work to keep my ego in check and practice spiritual principles such as humility, honesty, willingness and so forth.. I curse, I don't wear fake nails because I play some guitar, I am not plastic, I'm not a size 0 as I have curves and a little "thickness", I have tattoos, and I am an awful driver at night. I workout 5-7 days a week and I like to take care of myself except one little minor thing... I smoke. If you can't handle that well then it's your loss and someone else's gain? I will quit one day when I want to start making babies but we are talking about light years from now. I DON'T smoke in front of children or when I'm around non-smokers. I simply excuse myself and go smoke in private. I'm a very outgoing and compassionate person and I can relate to people from all different walks of life. I love kids and I LOVE animals. I am not a lazy, do-nothing person. I can't comprehend how someone can waste their life on a couch. Also, I'm not looking to get married by Friday and have kids by Sunday. I rather just enjoy someone's company for a while and see where it goes.
What I'd like from you.. . Most importantly, I am huge on respect. I give the utmost respect to all individuals and to the man that could possibly have my heart, whom I will defend and honor, and I will get the same respect back. I've worked really hard to become a great woman and I hold the same high standards in the man I date. Anyway... I could sit here and say you must be "this" tall, or must have "that" degree, or have "dark hair " only, but the truth is love has no size, shape, or color. Love doesn't care about how much money you make or whether you have a six-pack. When you click, you just click. It's beyond our own self-will. It doesn't happen too often...Anyway.. Through dating I'm finding that honesty and loyalty have become a dead art. There are some characteristics that I do find attractive but I won't limit myself to just that: I know I have clicked with men who were honest and loyal. I am pretty sure I'm not compatible with slouches, but I can be great friends with one. :) Tools are a part of every generation but I wouldn't mind dating someone with a well-balanced ego. Intelligence is a major turn on! Please know how to spell and use grammar? Hehe.
I know I've said a lot here, but there is way more to me than what I've put out there as I have a very eclectic taste, many hobbies, and a wisdom that only comes from having a rough life. There's a lot about me I don't talk about with just anyone, but only with people I'm extremely close with.
Don't be afraid to shoot me message! I'm extremely friendly, however, if I don't get back to you then I'm probably busy or not interested. Don't take it in vain as this site has way more men than women on here and it can be a little overwhelming.
