I want to be clear here: I am looking for that person to spend my life with. I am at a place in my life where I want a relationship. I am not looking to date men who are on here "just to have fun," are on the rebound, or aren't sure about what they want. I've met some really great guys on here that have broken my heart because they just weren't in the same place as I was in terms of wanting a relationship. I eventually want commitment from a man I'm physically, mentally, and emotionally attracted to. Intelligence, sense of humor and physical attraction are all very important. I don't have just one type of person I'm attracted to, but I think we all know there has to be chemistry there. (I'm not opposed to casual dating to get to know someone and just have fun, but if we're getting along well after several dates, it should be evident that we both want it to move forward.) I think the right person could be out there anywhere, so I'm open to meeting people outside my immediate geographical area. I am willing to relocate for the right person! I've lived in Las Vegas, and my sister lives there; I'd move back in a heartbeat if I had a job there.
I'm a fun-loving person who enjoys living life to the fullest. (If you lean toward the very conservative, we won't click.) I have eclectic tastes and friends and am comfortable in a variety of social situations. I'm very creative and artistic and do a lot of performing in local theatre, but I also love attending sporting events, especially Colts games and college basketball (Butler and IU). I love to travel, especially to California and Florida beaches and to fun cities. I'm in Vegas a lot because my sister lives there.
I'm a bit of a foodie and love to try new restaurants, go to special events such as festivals and art fairs, go to casinos, attend concerts and just generally have fun. My family is very important to me. I lost my mother to breast cancer eight years ago, and caring for her during her illness really made me understand just how fragile life is. It's far too short to "sweat the small stuff."
I'm extremely tolerant and fair-minded and feel happiest in the company of others who are as well. I don't have to be with a partner 24/7; I'm very independent, and my job requires sometimes erratic hours. I have a very loving heart. I'm great at back rubs and feet massages, but I love to be spoiled too. I'm great with kids and still a kid at heart myself; most people don't guess my age. I love children, and I have a niece and nephew and three godchildren that I enjoy spoiling and spending time with.
I can look great in a dress and sexy in sweats, and I can converse about a variety of subjects because I'm genuinely interested in the world around me. I can have fun during a night out on the town or just sitting at home on the couch watching a movie and eating popcorn.
If you like to keep physically fit and take care of your health, that's a plus. I dance and work out regularly, so it's important that my partner do the same. I prefer someone laid-back with a good sense of humor who doesn't let the little things in life get him down.
My ideal match is someone who is physically and mentally attractive to me and who is a person tolerant of the world around him.. I like men who have the ability to go after what they want while not losing sight of who they are in the process. I am not looking for: men looking for a "placeholder" while they work out their divorce issues or wait for that woman they're crushing on to finally notice, much older men, men who aren't mature enough to communicate honestly, and men only looking for a hook-up.
