I am a woman with meat on her bones, a smile in her heart, and laughter on her mind. I love exploring new places, restaurants, and stories. When my nose isn't stuck in a book, my eyes could be glued to a cheesy reality show or a moving documentary. I love to cook and entertain and turn regular spaces into beautiful places to relax, connect, and enjoy friends and family.
I love to write, travel and share funny, embarrassing, frustrating, joyous moments with people I love. My goals in life are to see as much of the world as I can, make meaningful connections with people who bring joy to my life and to some day have a wonderful family that expands my patience, compassion and capacity for love.
I have a soft spot for southern men. Southern is not a prerequisite, but respectful is.
I love a man who can make me laugh, a man whose actions and words are the same, a man who is kind, and a man who has established a life of his own. If he likes to travel, try new restaurants, spend the day driving to a new place, sit on the couch and cuddle on a rainy night, and can kiss me until my toes curl--then he's right for me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
The place isn't as important as the conversation. While a setting can enhance a mood, if a man can make me laugh, help carry the conversation, show interest in me, and keep a positive attitude, then it's a great first date. I love to be outside in nice weather so anything by the beach or at an outdoor cafe would be ideal, but the most important thing is the conversation and the level of attraction and engagement.
NOTE: It will not be at my house for "cuddling."
