I'm playfully sarcastic and enjoy making others laugh. While not a bucket list goal, "you're the only person who can make me pee my pants (laughing)!" isn't a bad way to be known. That said, I am a bit of a dichotomy. I'm inquisitive and introspective at times. I can find enjoyment in my own thoughts or absurd fascination people watching, and you'll often find me with a mysterious, pensive smile. I'm comfortable in my own skin and don't feel the need to go out just to prove I'm having a great night. Spending time alone, wrapped up in another person, IS a night out. The value of genuine, intelligent, one-on-one conversation cannot be overstated and is as likely to be found in an exotic cafe over coffee as it is on walk in the park or casual glass of wine at home. The "right" setting may help set the stage, but it's the "actors" you connect with and the words and feelings you remember.

If you can be irreverent, youthful (at heart) but wise (in soul), energetic, quirky, thoughtful, and able to hold a random conversation about anything...I'm there. You wear blue jeans, a sundress, or that little black dress with equal comfort and grace. You're happy with who you are but see yourself growing even better with another. I want someone who challenges me intellectually (smart is so very attractive) and likes to be physically active. I'm looking for that someone who exudes comfort but then makes me go weak in the knees when she walks in the room and smiles at me.
OK , so I've rambled on long enough. Let's get to my favorite part of the story....You
