A propos de
Single mom of 2 (one a teen and the other over 18), divorced for about 2 years. I'm college-educated, intelligent, and have a professional career, but I like to think I keep it WAY real. I'm kinda quirky & nerdy, yet somewhat edgy (can't think of another word for it) - I guess I'm pretty independent, but at the same time, somewhat traditional. Confident, yet humble. I generally look pretty reserved and quiet (people mistake me for a snob), but I actually have an off-beat, wicked sense of humor and I enjoy talking to people from all walks of life. I enjoy exploring different cultures, dining out (fine dining and hole-in-the-wall spots), international traveling, dirty/seedy bars, art, reggae music, documentary films, flea markets/swap meets, dogs, inappropriate humor (think Stern or Paul Mooney), decorating, wearing red lipstick, and spontaneous day/weekend trips. I don't mind staying in, snuggling and watching a movie, but I really like to be out exploring what the world has to offer! I'm trying to find my male counterpart/soulmate - I know you must be out there...
I love an honest, intelligent GENTLEMAN who is financially (that means a steady job) and emotionally stable (if that's not you so far, stop reading now), romantic, kind-hearted, socially-conscious, compassionate towards others, love animals, and who knows how to treat a lady. Ability & willingness to communicate and express feelings is a must. HUGE plus for humor (see above) and gentleman-like manners - I find those qualities very attractive. That being said, I am not a meek female - while I'm well-mannered and reasonably cultured, I also actually have opinions and sh*t to say. I feel strongly about standing up for what is right and for the disadvantaged. I'm a bit crass at times. I probably curse too much - but not all the time - there's a time and place for everything. On my softer side, I'm very loving, compassionate (and passionate), loyal, and romantic. I like to be pursued by a man in a traditional sense, and I appreciate chivalry. I try to see the good in everyone, put myself in other's shoes.
Not in a rush - need to be friends first. You need to be willing to put in the time to build a strong friendship that hopefully will unfold into something more. In terms of meeting, I'm really not into long, drawn-out messaging and texting that goes no where - take a chance people! While I'm not a supermodel, I still get my fair share of male attention, so at the very least I know I'm cute enough (and cool enough) to make a good friend ;) You guys are so afraid of the "friend zone".....geeesh..
Oh yeah, if we meet and you don't look anything like your pics, you're buying me drinks till you do!

First meeting doesn't actually have to be a "date" - maybe just meet for a drink. But in terms of an "official" date, I LOVE to be wined & dined!
