I'd like to find someone to hang out with and if there's more, that's fine too. Confidence, independence, brutal honesty, loyalty, sense of humor and sarcastic are a few traits that describe me and traits I find attractive. I'm a strong, passionate person and more than happy to offer my opinion on things, but I know when it's appropriate. I moved here from MN via IL so I'm a cold weather, water, hockey and Vikings fan.
I like all kinds of music; if it has a good beat, I like it. Garth Brooks is my favorite singer. 80's is my favorite era. Gotta love hair bands! I enjoy outdoor concerts. I love traveling, going on cruises, being in the sun and water. I'm passionate about animals and donate money and time to charities that do great work for animals.
For more than friends...I'm attracted to someone who doesn't smoke, is taller than me in heels (5'10+), acts like a man (no baby talk or crying), has his own place, a steady job, has similar interests, that I get along with and have a lot of fun no matter what we're doing. I'm attracted to black and white men, typically, and appreciate traditional traits like opening doors and making first moves. I prefer a quick-witted outdoorsman to a shy bookworm and passion and aggression to prudent and passive. That "spark" is important and should be felt in the first couple dates, though I'll likely know in the first couple minutes. If you don't have your own car, can't spell or carry on a conversation (ask questions), don't bother!
