In the end we all want a best friend..Someone we can love and share our deepest secrets and thoughts with... I guess in the long run...that is what I am looking for too. I am looking for a man to spend time with who is kind, smart and hopefully a little bit funny.
As for me, I am a smart and sophisticated woman with a quick wit. I am currently working on my Ph.D. so it's been hard to meet people the old fashioned way. Online dating seemed like the best solution to meeting someone with similar interests. I am looking for a genuine connection with a special man. If you come across my profile and are still reading...go ahead, wink or e-mail. Neither of us will ever find love if we don't give it a shot. ;) I'm excited about this!
Also, just s disclaimer...I'm always asked...Are those glamor shots? The answer is no... I had a friend take some free pics with his amazing camera for a business function. He happened to take a couple "sexy shots" I guess... This is exactly how I look, I did my own hair/makeup and they are completely recent.. I mean I thought they were nice pics but when I've met people on dates some of the feedback I've gotten is that I look "way better" in person & I've recently heard I look aloe younger in person. Go figure! I thought they were nice! Lol!
** ONE BIGGIE is that I WANT children.YES! I'm aware that I JUST TURNED 40! So if you cant have kids, don't want them, or have something controversial or rude to say about my "clock ticking" or that " I better hurry up" I don't really want to hear your views and wont be confined by societies ideas on what "old" is and don't need your advice on what to do with my body. I want kids, but NOT in 9 months...so if you're open to having one (or some more) someday soon. Then perfect!
***also, due to who I have been attracting, I need to be open & honest that I'm physically attracted to mostly Caucasian men & some Hispanic men. I am not attracted to African American men.
BUT--Here are a few things I really love:
-Intelligent interesting conversation
-Standing up for the rights of those who may not have a strong voice- like children or the elderly
- Someone with hopes, dreams and passions in life
-Not taking life too seriously
-Alaska, where I once lived
-Men who don't get intimidated easily
-Blue Eyes (although not mandatory)
-The smell of the ocean
-Laughing till my stomach hurts! ;)
What matters above all is that my perfect match will be kind, confident, ready to open his heart and willing to take a chance on a silly dating site in the name of love. ;)
