Hello Gentleman! I can't describe all my true colors in 2000 "characters" or less but honesty is the best approach....so for starters, I'm certainly no Martha Stewart home tidying my kitchen and baking apple pies. I dread Mary Kay parties and all that feminine stuff women do (but I do love to shop!). My friends would say I'm independent, spontaneous, assertive, career oriented, carefree...maybe even a little silly or goofy at times. They're usually busting my chops and I'm laughing right along with them at all my idiosyncrasies. I truly am the "work hard, play hard" personality. I can be the last person leaving the office at night and the first one organizing cocktail hour after work. I'm usually not one to miss the social events......especially on the weekends! Overall, I have good sense sense of balance and always know where my priorities lie in life. A central part of this; an amazing group of friends and a close family I am so fortunate to have........leading to what I look for in a companion (this is the hard part!). Attraction is important, but for me, it's so arbitrary I can't even describe it....really do not have a "type" but I'll give it a shot. I do not expect the "perfect" man and truthfully looks only go so far. A connection is more to me than good looks or superficial qualities that some people look for. I don't experience "love at first sight" and usually feel chemistry over time when it hits me over the head out of nowhere. I'm drawn to intelligent, positive people who don't lose themselves in a relationship. I hope to meet a person who shares my values and has a sense on direction in their life. A guy who's open minded, down to earth and passionate about something. It certainly helps to have similar interests but I admire the person who stands up for their opinions and has a confident sense of who they are. So.... if you're looking for that girl who bakes muffins or cooks you a 5 course meal....please...I don't want to kill you! Otherwise, maybe we could be a match and I'd like to hear from you.
