Don't make any assumptions about me based on my corny user name ... really, I am not a completely vacuous blonde. I chose the name 'cupcake' because I operate a small baking business out of my home in my spare time. I have often been told I have a "sweet" disposition, but I promise there's plenty of 'spice' in me too which balances all that sugar. :-)
In reality, I'm a true-blue, midwestern girl with a sarcastic sense of humor and a generous heart. I always go the extra mile for the special people in my life; including my awesome close-knit family (we're big on sincere actions and leery of big talkers), a slew of friends and neighbors (I swear they're not just in it for free sweets and treats), and my dog (ok, he may be in it just for the treats). I have ALOT going for me, and I am looking for an interesting and spontaneous partner to share it with.
I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity for a fresh start, and I'm looking for an equally laid back, decent guy with a wicked sense of humor who can make me laugh until it hurts. I'm a sucker for witty banter, and tall guys, and military guys, and guys with blue eyes and a warm smile. I won't settle for less than a deep connection and true intimacy with a partner who is an incredible kisser and above all, is a gentleman.
I think it's sexy when a man is confident in the kitchen and loves to cook (I will gladly do the dishes!) - even better if we can create in the kitchen together. LOVE any excuse to entertain, so if you enjoy hosting casual dinner parties with friends, we'll get along just fine. I'm big on tradition and a kid at heart when it comes to celebrating holidays and tend to make "events" out of the simplest activities in life.
Right now, I am appreciating the little things and simple pleasures in life in addition to expanding my horizons. I may be 39, but I am still a work in progress.
I am an independent woman with 3 fantastic kids who is comfortable fending for herself. I can change my own tire and have a well organized and extensive toolbox. I don't shy away from using powertools or a lawn mower, and I'm perfectly capable of hanging things on walls and programming my TV remote control. All things my dad assurred me would serve me well later in life (turns out, he was right!). If you're into Myers-Briggs, I am an ESFJ - which means I tend to be a caregiver who gets pleasure in pleasing others, someone who is practical, loyal, very social, upbeat and conflict-avoiding (this includes drama).
If you're still reading this novel and think you'd like to get to know me better, by all means, drop me a note. Please don't send me a form letter (trust me, it's pretty obvious if you have one email that you send to everyone you are interested in). Let's see if we have a personal connection and go from there!
