Hi. My name is Mandy. My photos were taken in the summer of 2012 during a photo shoot for my professional webpage, but since I had the photographer for 4 hours, we squeezed in some "glamour" shots as well -- hence, the shot of me against the ladder. The one of me smiling is a much more accurate reflection of my personality than the others. It was hard for me to look serious or distant but he insisted I have a bunch of different "looks," so there you go.
As you might be able to tell, I have a well-toned body overlaid with softness and curves. I am very physically active and work out several days a week. I do yoga, swim and take long walks, since I sit all day long at work. I am not one of those women who just eats salads, although I do eat A LOT of salads :-) I love to eat, including meat, but everything in moderation. I save the weekends for indulging. Flourless chocolate cake is my biggest weakness. (With the best quality chocolate, of course.)
I consider my mind and personality a bit like my physical body: a solid inner core of confidence and strength, but with a soft and yielding heart. I am known for my infectious laugh and my friends think I'm funny, if that's a trait you're looking for in a woman. When I love someone, and I know he loves me, I am an extremely giving person in every sense of the word.
I used to give a little list of things I'm looking for in a man, but really, it comes down to chemistry. It's either there or it's not. However, I do tend to fall for men who are super-smart but not arrogant, romantic, well-educated, well-traveled and lead a healthy lifestyle. Hmm, I guess that is a little list after all. I think the last item is really important for a relationship, because if you can't take care of yourself, and you don't like yourself, how are you going to "take care" of someone else, to cultivate and reciprocate in a loving, intimate, stable and healthy relationship?
If you are truly interested in meeting me, then please know that I'm not into emailing back and forth. If you take the time to write an actual, personal email to me (as opposed to a wink), and the interest is mutual, I'll send you my phone number. Hopefully, you will be a gentleman. Enjoy your search!
