ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm the Midwestern girl-next-door who values substance over surface. Looking for a man who pays attention to the details without sweating the small stuff. While careers are important, I am more interested in your character. Of course, if you're handsome with a big, friendly grin and a wickedly sarcastic sense of humor, please advance to the front of the line. ;)

I'm the girl who appreciates a hand-picked bouquet of flowers from the farmers market over an expensive bouquet of long-stem red roses (way too predictable). Sure I enjoy going to trendy eateries in DC, but I'll be more impressed if you serve me a home-cooked meal in front of your fireplace. Perfectly at ease at a black-tie charity gala (I happen to produce them as my profession), but I will be much more excited about a low-key night in with you, a good bottle of red, and either wrapped up in blanket outside under the stars or wrapped up in each other on your couch watching a movie.

(Quick sidebar: To get my attention and ultimately win my heart, you'll need to be an incredible kisser. Seriously. Someone else at some point in your life has confirmed your skill in this area. I've learned from experience there are lots of people who think they have mastered the technique, but sadly it just ain't so. We can debate what sets the best apart from the rest in person.)

If I visit your profile, I'm likely to read it all the way through ... and 99% of the time, I read it before I scroll through your pictures. In fact I am baffled by some of the things I've read here about your dating experiences. If we go out for drinks, I guarantee I won't be rude to our server (I used to be one after all, back in the day) and I will look like the photos I've posted here.

Likewise, if you contact me, I'll want to 1) actually meet you in person (not just text ad nauseum), and 2) probably won't engage in graphic discussions about our sexual compatibility prior to actually meeting you in person. Perhaps this is online dating's new norm, but I'm holding out for something more meaningful than sexting with a stranger. I trust that normal, attractive, charismatic men exist out there who are capable of a little more subtlety and charm. That said, I'm all in favor of exploring our kissing compatibility in person if the chemistry is there and the moment evolves naturally.

What else would you like to know? I work full-time in development for a large non-profit and have 3 fantastic, energetic kids (twin girls, and a son). I also have a small baking business on the side (the cheesy username 'cupcake' makes sense now, right?). I can keep you in steady supply of treats and sweets in exchange for flirtatious compliments and frequent back rubs. Completely normal, totally sane, passionate about the people in my life, great sense of direction, no major skeletons in the closet or on the internet. Enjoy staying active, but not a slave to exercise. Biking, hiking, kayaking and sailing are some of my interests. I enjoy tennis (total novice), am a voracious reader, and would eventually love someone to teach me to scuba dive and play golf. If you are a runner, we won't have that in common, but I will gladly cheer you on from the sidelines.

I'm from Michigan, so being practical and self-sufficient are deeply ingrained character traits. My automotive engineer father taught me to always read the owner's manual (therefore I can program my own remote control) and my mom raised me to leave everything a little bit better than I found it. I'm the oldest daughter, but am far more naïve than my street-savvy sis in Chicago (she will likely check out and verify your back story, so beware). I'm genuine, happy, flirtatious, drama-free, and I promise to devote lots of time and affection to you. I will love you, but not smother you.

If you are still reading this diatribe, if you are open to love and to showing your affection both in your words and actions, don't be shy ... send me an email or wink if you must!

For fun:

It's really not about WHAT I am doing so much as WHO I am spending it with. I like spontaneity - surprise me! I'm pretty easy to please - especially when someone else is doing the planning!

Favorite hot spots:

Any museum on the Mall, bike rides in Rock Creek Park or along GW Parkway, strolling through Old Town Alexandria, taking in a play at Arena Stage, picnic dinner at Wolftrap, anyplace where I can get a fresh lobster dinner!

Favorite things:

Spending a few weeks each summer on the Maine coast - it brings out the very best in me, and has become an annual tradition. My bed (it's really comfy). Fall in DC - the cooler temps and fires in my outdoor fireplace. Also love popcorn from Garretts!

Last read:

Mostly fiction, but some non-fiction, too. Big history buff. I belong to a neighborhood book club, but mostly go to have a glass of wine with my friends. ;)
