I'm passionate about exploring the world around me and I find joy in the little things in life; a beautiful sunset, a good day with friends, or finding a new wine can all put a smile on my face. I can be sarcastic and silly (it's important to not take oneself too seriously); I'm also extremely honest, caring, and loyal. I like to make sure the people in my life know how much they are appreciated.
I'm also open to meeting new friends in the area. Not everyone can be a romantic connection. Maybe you think I'm too short or too busty for you (damn shame, really); it never hurts to make new friends, though, so that invitation is open.
My interests are varied and I think that keeps life exciting. If I couldn't be a teacher, I've always said I would be an astronaut, a glass blower, or a novelist. I have dabbled in both glass work and writing. Unfortunately, I'm too short to be an astronaut, but I still love learning about the universe. Spending a warm summer night watching the stars sounds pretty dreamy to me. I love to visit new places and try new cuisines, but I'm also content spending a weeknight taking my dog for a walk, playing board games, and cuddling up while watching Netflix. I think living a good life involves a balance between those two ends of the spectrum.
What I'm looking for is a gentleman who values himself as much as he values and honors others. I'd like to meet a good man who is always striving to be a better man, because I'm always striving to be the best me I can be. I'd love to meet someone funny (at least to me) and confident, who has traditional values and a strong bond with his family. A love for cooking is a bonus, and a love for travel is even better. Knowing the different between your and you're is a must! I'm a romantic at heart and would love to find the same in a partner. I'm not looking to be serenaded by moonlight (not that I would complain), but I definitely would like to be with someone who is comfortable showing affection. In the long run, I'm looking for a partner-in-crime who wants to build a beautiful life and family and who knows what it takes to make those things a reality.
But why don't we start with coffee or dinner first? :)
