First and foremost...I DO NOT have a foot fetish. I love shoes...nothing more :)
Please send me a message if you are interested as I do not respond to winks.
I consider myself to be a very young 47. I prefer men who are active and in shape. We all have physical preferences. Please do not wink or email me if you are over 53. More importantly, I do not respond to anyone without a few pictures posted. That is why I post so many. This way there are no surprises when we meet.
I am looking for someone who has common interests and eventually a long-term relationship. I do not like to jump right into something as I feel it takes a little time to get to know someone and your compatibility. Communication is key as well as common courtesy. I'm attracted to men who are intelligent, good-looking, quick-witted, a "little" sarcastic, honest, sincere, driven, good boy/bad boy, romantic, confident, not arrogant, chivalrous (old-fashioned) guy...someone who does what he says he's going to do. I know...it's a lot but I'm determined :) In a nutshell, I try to surround myself with people who "get it." And if you're asking yourself "get what," we're definitely not a good match.
To me a relationship is not defined necessarily by the good times (they're easy), but the hard times. It's the little things that matter to me. Where I am is not as important as who I'm with. I am very close with my family and friends. I have two beautiful daughters 16 and 19 whom I adore. They are my first priority...but there's room for someone else. My girls are older and I'm ready to begin the second part of my life.
Please smile...it says so much about your personality. Also, if you only have one picture posted, I will kindly ask for more. I am not fond of the shirtless bathroom pics. I find them very tacky. Believe me, I can tell if you work out or not :) Also, there is a time and place for everything. Unfortunately, most people are clueless as to when that time is.
I'm an adjunct English professor. It goes a long way when you use "I" versus "i." And yes, it's different if we're texting :)
I USED to respond to everyone as I feel it is a common courtesy whether you are interested or not. I would expect the same from others. However, it seems even with the courtesy of a response and telling someone respectfully that I don't think we're a good match, people are offended. You're damned if you do, and damned if you don't. Therefore, I do not respond to everyone now. If I do not respond, please just accept that for whatever reason, I don't think we're a good match and leave it at that.
More about me...I treat people the way I want to be treated and I don't ask of others what I myself cannot or am not willing to give. My father always taught me, "If you're going to mark someone's test scores, make sure you mark the ones they get right."
My favorite fortune from a fortune cookie..."if you settle for less than you deserve, you get less than what you settle for." THESE ARE WORDS TO LIVE BY :)
Finally, I do look for "exclusivity" eventually after we get to know one another, I would hope that it would be a mutual decision to be exclusive and that it would be openly communicated. I am a one-man woman and would expect and hope my partner would have the same values and intentions. Again, I do not like to rush into anything.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. If you have any interest, I hope to hear from you.
