I am well-established, successful, and secure. I'm not a perfect ten, but I am confident in who I am. I have all my crap together and now I am looking for the right person to share my life with. I may be strong and independent, but I am still a woman and I enjoy being treated like one. That's not to say that I need flowers brought to me every day, but I want someone who is strong, yet sensitive enough to understand that I am soft, fragile, and delicate on the inside, even if I don't always show it.
I am a strong woman, but I still have a soft side, so I need someone who is even stronger than I am and who will allow me to be vulnerable sometimes.
I am very loving and affectionate. I thrive on kisses and cuddling. I would love to find a man who is receptive to that kind of attention (in private, of course!).
Above all else, I am looking for a spark. Unfortunately, I am so shy and guarded that I can seem cold at first (especially if I like you...how's that for irony?), and I won't open up and reveal my personality right away. It takes a while for me to get truly comfortable with people. But if you are patient and willing to make the investment, I will open up to you in time and have you laughing hysterically. I have a definite goofy/quirky streak and I am not ashamed to laugh at myself.
I've been a high school English teacher for the past 7 years. I love what I do, even though it's the hardest job I've ever had.
I am very ambitious and have a lot of personal and professional goals I am working toward over the next couple of years. I am looking for someone to be supportive and who I can share my successes with. Likewise, I am also the kind of woman who will stick by her man through thick and thin.
As far as hobbies go, I like working with my hands and being creative. I like cooking, baking, crafting, and writing. Two years ago I taught myself how to make stained glass. I have a 1980 Camaro Z28 I try to work on too (Note I said "try").
I like girly things like high heel shoes, makeup, and clothes, but I'm not prissy. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.
I'm looking for a man who is strong in every sense of the word. Someone sexy, smart, and successful. Someone who is confident and doesn't need to hide behind corny pick up lines and loads of hair gel. Someone intelligent, ambitious, stable, and secure. Someone who doesn't feel the need to be the loudest talker in the room in order to prove himself.
I am not interested in getting into an email/texting trap. I think the goal of online dating is to get offline and meet in person to see if there is any attraction. I find it a major turn-off when a man won't take the lead and make an effort to set up an actual date.
