I just moved back to San Diego after living/working in LA for four years. I love it here and can't wait to enjoy this beautiful city again. I have a very flexible schedule and can be totally spontaneous and am up for anything! I would describe myself as smart,witty, fun loving, kind, generous, feminine, honest, emotionally mature, excellent communicator, and a bit adventurous. I am low-drama, organized, and very caring. I have never been married and don't have any kids. I guess that's what happens when you make work and career a priority instead of your personal life. Well, that's totally changed and now I am on my own "Eat, Pray, Love" journey. (sorry, I know that's cheesy). I want to have fun, establish and nuture meaningful relationships, laugh more, experience pleasure and sensuality, and....fall in love....with a man who comes to know and love me.
Who is that man? Well, he is intelligent, well read, funny, outgoing, driven, affectionate, attentive, loving, kind, supeior communicator, and a totally masculine man. I just love a guy who has that masculine energy, of taking care of his woman, making her feel safe, secure, and cared for, but let's her be who she was born to be, who listens, supports, and counsels, not dominates. He makes me feel sexy, beautiful, and is a great kisser. He should come from a stable family, have somewhat traditional values, and want that out of his relationship. (my parents are still married after 46 years). He should not be afraid to be himself in a committed relationship allowing me to truly see who he is so I can love him fully. He should be patient with me as I need some time to open up and share the real me. He can fix just about anything, is comfortable outdoors and also enjoys a night in front of the TV watching movies. He likes to cook and try new restaurants. He enjoys traveling, and experiencing new things. He is social and can handle himself in social and professional situations. Last, and most important, he is just as committed to me as I am to him and he is committed to the relationship we worked hard to find and want to last.
To some, the description of "the man" may seem like a long list, but my intent is to be as specific as I can so you can understand what is truly important to me.
It's taken me a while to want a relationship and after working hard, seeing the world, giving to others, and loosening up ;) I am ready. I hope you are too.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Hmmmm...well, you'd call me and ask me out with little information about where we're going or what we will be doing ( nothing involving fishing or hunting, or trips to the landfill please). We would start off with something totally unexpected, an activity where we can both try something new or something relatively adenturous. Something that would break the ice, having us helping one another out, making us both laugh, and something that would help us let our guard down so we can get to the good stuff! After that, we can slow it down and enjoy a nice dinner, some wine, and share stories that crack us up and make us see the tender/softer side of each other. We wouldn't wait until the end of the night for that first kiss. If we're both feeling it, then let's not wait for that awkward moment. By the end of this date we will both say, that was awesome - we tried it, we did it, we laughed, we ate, we drank, we kissed, we shared, we are worn out, and we want to do it again tomorrow!
