First and foremost I'm a Taurus. Just sayin'. I can be a handful because I'm full of energy but I also like my home time. I love being out adventuring with friends but also love being cuddled up in bed with a good book or whipping up some new deliciousness in the kitchen. I love travel and appreciate men who are worldly and think globally. I love intellectual conversation and healthy debate. I am compassionate and generous almost to a fault. I need to be reeled in sometimes because I look after others so much I forget to take care of my own self. So I need someone who will take care of me, respect me, entertain me, challenge me. I'm not a drama queen by any stretch and I don't like drama, although at any given time, its not difficult to figure out how I am feeling - I'm pretty transparent, no mystery or games. I am scarred by relationships in the past with abusive narcissists, so I am going to be very selective, cautious and a wee little bit afraid. If you have the patience to get past the shield I may carry from my scars, I would welcome those who want to spend quality time building friendship first through sharing experiences. I need someone who is willing to hold my hand, literally and figuratively. I have had an extremely full life so far and live with the mantra: 'You are a perishable item, live accordingly'. So I constantly seek opportunity to do new things, meet new people and enjoy life to its fullest, knowing that I have been blessed with health and opportunity that others may not have been so lucky to have. The best way to honor your gift of life is to enjoy it. I work for nonprofits and have for years and I love to give back and share the joy.
I am not looking for ego. You should be comfortable in your own skin. If I am better than you at something you need to be OK with it and proud of me. If you are better than me at something you can either help me to become better at it to share it with me, or be OK with the fact that I maybe can't participate on this one particular thing with you, and that's OK too. I need someone who is confident to meet people, be social, enjoy experiencing new things constantly, and always live with your eyes, ears and mind open.
Like I said, I may be considered a handful, but I want to enjoy a full life and so you would need to be not only ready for the ride, but ready to inspire me, teach me, support me and share with me. Just sayin'.
