I'm a Florida native, born and raised. I have a big family and love spending time with them. I have a core group of girlfriends and have kept most of them close for 15 years. You should know that I have a a psycho cat named Peta, and it should be noted here that I named her Peta simply because I liked the name, NOT because I support any extremist, terrorist organization running around NYC obnoxiously throwing paint on people's fur coats. While I do believe in the ethical treatment of animals, make no mistake, I am a carnivore. She is evil - I fear her, but I love her nonetheless.
I am a paralegal and have carried the same job for almost 11 years. I am not really sure how I ended up in this profession, but here I am. I love it - don't get me wrong, but it just sort of happened. Hey, it pays the bills.
My true passion is cooking. I've been told I'm really good at it, but I'm always left a bit disappointed with my final product for one reason or another. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist in that respect.
I love good wine, traveling (even though I haven't done much of it), the entire dining experience, laughing, friendly banter, sarcasm, concerts, and socializing with good, quality people.
Turnoffs: (1) Massive egos - your'e not that awesome; (2) Weak handshakes - I'm a girl, but shake my hand like a man and look me in the eye when you're shakin' it; and (3) Weak chins - If your chin and neck are one entity, please move on to the next profile. lol
