Smile! What did you think my headline was going to say? ;) In all honesty, if you don't have a fun sense of humor or like laughing til your stomach hurts, then we won't get along well and you'll dislike my family and friends.
So, WHO am I?
I'm a genuine, family-oriented person who is loyal, hard-working, independent, thoughtful, and respectful. Let's just say that I have my priorities in order and haven't met a mother that didn't like me.
Although I have cable and internet services, I don't spend a lot of time watching TV or web series, so I can't discuss what happened on the recent episode of Game of Thrones, Orange Is The New Black or any others. My only vice these days is Shark Tank…and singing songs (in the car) from the movie Frozen.
I call my line of work the "business side of psychology", which explains why I prefer to be out and about meeting up with friends for brunch/Happy Hour/dinner (i.e. Chinese, Japanese, Hawaiian, Italian and Asian-Fusion foods), seeing live concerts (i.e. U2, One Republic, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, JT), broadway shows (I want to see Book of Mormon the next time it's in town), traveling to places I've never visited (Italy, France, Australia, Greece, to name a few), and revisiting places I love (Hawaii, Tahoe, Cabo San Lucas).
WHAT am I looking for in a life partner and best friend?
First, allow me to explain that there's no "elephant in the room". I've never been married. My daughter's father is an active participant in her life and we're on cordial terms. I'm not looking for someone to replace him, but an excellent role model is definitely important.
With the possibility of having another child in the future and hope of growing older and wiser together, my life partner and best friend must be within the age range of 35 and 45, and is 5' 8" or taller. He is fun, responsible, a good listener, open-minded, generous, genuine, passionate about his family/career/life, emotionally independent and takes excellent care of himself (i.e. hygiene, exercise, diet, etc.). Together, we will mark things off of our "Bucket List" and be each other's biggest supporter and cheerleader through life's ups and downs. We eventually become that cute, old couple who still holds hands…even during bingo. :)
Our own, modern version of SNL's "Coffee Talk", followed by lunch/dinner, and then we'll see where it goes from there.
