I've worked for myself for close to 2 decades, so I have a tendency to fill my plate with "a lot." I always seem to commit myself to things "all the way." I jump into the pool. I don't tip toe around it. It has allowed me to meet some incredibly interesting people and travel to some amazing places. They are experiences that are definitely irreplaceable. I'm thankful for the opportunities I've been given.
I am completely an animal lover. Other than my nieces and nephews, my dogs are my favorite things in the world to me. I guess you could say "my kids have paws." I really can't see myself with someone who's not an animal person. That's pretty much a must.
I love to stay active. I'm a doer - not a watcher and really enjoy getting my hands into the mix. I love someone who can "belly laugh" yet at the same time have a sophisticated conversation. I have a creative background, so love to think outside the box and explore new things.
Someone who is secure and strong in himself yet kind to others is attractive. A man with a strong personality who can hold their own in new places with new people is a positive. A great sense of humor with the ability to "belly laugh" while still being able to have a sophisticated conversation is a great balance.
