Born and raised in South Jersey(the non-guido part), my family is back there, and I speak with them daily. I've been in CA for 4 years now. Very active person, and I like to take advantage of this area and try new things, mostly outdoors. I cook mostly all of my meals, but I do like to go out to eat. The crazy bar days are over, but I still enjoy an occasional night out. Always up for experiencing new cultures, and I do it as often as possible. I require music and laughter to function. I expect to receive the same level of respect that I give. Was raised by a strong woman, and I had a very bossy older sister...so I have grown up around women living up to their potential, which I like to see.
I'm not looking for any particular set of traits, I see a lot of profiles that describe themselves as: fun, caring, passionate, drama free etc etc...Every time I read that I think to myself, I'll be the judge of that, thank you.
I think it is better to get to know one another through conversation. I am a firm believer in the fact that chivalry is not dead, but there is nothing wrong with a woman making the first move. Feel free to say hello.
