4/8/2013: It has become painstakingly clear that right now dating/relationships are not for me. Perhaps in a few months, I will reconsider after careful evaluation of my current career/life situation and revisit the possibilities of online dating. Best of luck on your quest. I hope you all have many many wonderful dates and find the true meaning of happiness and self-fulfillment.
I'm a quick wit and a sharp tongue. Those who understand me take no offense to well-intended, flirtatious one-liners. Those who KNOW me, know that I have no agenda, you can take me at face-value and you never have to wonder how I'm feeling!! I leap tall buildings in a single bound and have been known to lure stray children from their homes wielding only a flute. I prefer Coco Puffs to Special K but insist on eggs and bacon. Put me in front of a New York Strip and it'll be gone before you can hold my hair back and tie on the bib! OK in all seriousness... I'm a Dance Instructor and a Single Mom. My family is in NY, FL and up and down the East Coast. I speak my mind, maybe more than I should. I'm a tough nut and I'm aware of this. I may not be the path of least resistance, but It's never a dull moment in my life! I'm usually smiling and laughing even if my teeth are blackened from chocolate cake! My friends are plentiful but out of state so I'm often alone!! I hardly ever get sick but when I do, I'm down for the count. I love to work because I love what I do. I rarely take a day off because now I'm the boss! I build my own props, sets and sew costumes and I love doing it!
My 'Ideal Match':
If I had my druthers, he would be thoughtful and creative. Gentle, but not a mush. Firm but not mean. Know when to put his foot down with me. He would enjoy my work with me and allow me to enjoy his and not assume I would be uninterested. He would let me be the big spoon on occasion :) And then we could laugh at how funny it is that my legs just don't reach that far!! He would be supportive and allow me the same opportunity to return the support. He would be a giver, but more importantly allow me the opportunity of that amazing feeling I would get from giving to him. He would know that it's not all about him and it's not all about me. He would carry my groceries in!! That's a big one!! He would go out with the guys and be happy when I go out with the girls. He would listen AND let me listen. He would trust me and have faith in my trust. He would wake me up with an amazing kiss just because it's Tuesday. He wouldn't mind when I take it upon myself to put a bully in his place.(I'm known to stand up for the little guy). He would indulge my idea that I think I'm 10 feet tall and remember that I'm little. He would accompany me to church at least on occasion. He would take my kid to Hallmark to pick out a Mother's Day card. He would bring me flowers to my recital! He would blush when I steal a glance from across a crowded room no matter how confident he is. He would feel important because I care about him. He would throw me over his shoulder when I'm not listening and make me laugh when the conversation gets too heavy. He would laugh at me if I overembibe and get the giggles. He would let me get lost in his smile. And to quote a movie, he would indulge me in "...long, slow, deep, wet kisses that last 3 days."
I tend to gravitate toward very tall, confident (not arrogant) men who prefer a teammate rather than a patsy by their side.........I'd like to meet a man who is not afraid of a self sufficient, single mom. Someone who has the brass to call me out when necessary, not just pick on me. Strong women need strong men. I want to adore him and I am a firm believe in reciprocity. :)
