The reality of online dating has finally hit me. No matter how attractive someone looks on paper and in a picture, you just can't know the chemistry. There is no substitute for making eye contact across the room, for feeling the warmth of his smile and the smell of his cologne to make you melt, to having a physical connection to build on. I believe in chemistry and the power of attraction and I believe that's what will give you the opportunity to find more. I haven't figured out how to find my perfect match or I wouldn't have landed here to begin with but I know I am looking for someone who believes in possibilities.
I play very strong roles in many areas and I enjoy my life...my family, my friends, my career. But I am at a point where I'd like to be found by someone who can challenge me, someone who is capable of being the strength in my personal life. I am not going to try to sugar coat who I am. I have a lot of great qualities but I think it's more important to tell you the things that you may not like up front... Why waste time. I have a low tolerance level when it comes to people being inconsiderate, I am stubborn, I like to get my own way as often as possible (who doesn't), I will voice my opinion and I think that even when you are involved with someone... you should still have separate lives and interests. Gives you time to miss each other.
As for some of my better qualities; I don't have any baggage, I have balance, I am passionate about the people and things I care about and I am not afraid to show it, I love trying new things and I am open to possibilities. Chemistry, chemistry, chemistry. I have met many attractive people who I wouldn't want to spend the time or energy on based on their personality or lack of. I want to enjoy the man, not just the things we do when we go out or stay in. My ideal match is a tall(at least as tall as me when I wear heels), intelligent (common sense always helps), charismatic (charming but genuine), professional (has a job and goals), ethnic (latin, italian or other) gentleman with ALL of his NICE teeth :o). I don't need someone to take care of me, I do well on my own, but it's always nice to have someone who cares about you. It would also be nice if he were spontanious enough to meet me for coffee today but organized enough to plan an elaborate date, only telling me what I should wear. Looking for someone to boss me around, but only in the gym!!!! I would be excited to watch most sports as long as he picked up tickets (especially UFCMMAJetsYankees), not the remote. I need someone strong and secure with himself so he can challenge me on every level; mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. I am looking for the one who can make my heart skip a beat, make me feel butterflies in my stomach and .......?
