Given all the time and no budget I would paint, draw, sing, act, create, write, dance...I'm an artist at heart, scientist by training, business woman by demand. I have a strong interest in organic foods, alternative medicine (not voodoo or hippie so no healing rocks under the pillows :)). I like to learn and appreciate differences so teach me something if you can. I value priceless experiences, good laughs and personal growth over materialism.
I like to be girly, wear heels, dresses and make-up but also enjoy the natural look, jeans, a t-shirt, hoodie and camping. I appreciate quality, like to contemplate life, human nature, motivations, world issues, spirituality...I have different interests and can always keep myself occupied with something. I am open and extroverted but think a lot and internally analyze. A lot of people say I have a mellow calm energy but I think quick, act fast and workout at a hardcore intensity...you may just never know. I like to have fun, resolve issues with humor and be happy but I hold core values, class, honesty, trust and integrity at a premium. Family is my priority and my niece is the boss of me. I'm North American and European.
I think chemistry is vital and I refuse to fall prey to the idea that it 'fades away with time'. I believe compatibility is important but good communication skills and a solid value system is the glue that holds it together and keeps the fire burning (there just needs to be a fire burning in the first place :). So I am looking for a man who is emotionally available, who is continually wanting to grow and be a better person and who is strong enough to follow his heart and soul, and stick through life's curves together. Humor helps (although I am not a fan of sarcasm) but also the desire to work things out and an interest in keeping the spark alive and the relationship healthy.
I don't give the 'carte blanche' simply for being hot, talented, famous or rich. We are not born equally and I am more interested in what you have done with what you have been given to become the person that you are. Teach something, make someone a better person, show the meaning of altruism, play the devil's advocate, step outside the box..your box, set your own trend, put your heart out on the line, face the consequences, reveal your darkest secret, blush, tremble, confess, commit, resist temptation, explore another culture, express your passion, define nobility, honestly listen, compromise, forgive, contemplate, grow...
Please know I don't respond to winks, picture likes, 'favorites', or men outside my age range preference. Sorry, I just don't have the time.
