I am a girl who would rather be with a guy who has big dreams and no money, than a guy with no dreams and big money. I do not really like and do not find myself attracted to “bad boys”—the awful, I’m-going-to-treat-you-like-crap so that everyone (read: I) can see how much of a man I am a kind of guy. I much rather be with a man who is [b] self aware, self confident and knows who and what he wants in his life. [/b]
Truth is, I am just a nice girl who is looking for a nice guy & fun, companionship, affection and love. Although, I have a successful career in executive management, I am more traditional than the majority of my girlfriends and the women in my immediate and extended families; a fact of which I celebrate.
I love to cook and bake from scratch, wear dresses, oddly enough find cleaning therapeutic. My self-esteem is well intact and I am not afraid to say that I want and need a man in my life. If I had the space for a vegetable garden, I would love to grow all of my own food—alas I am a city dweller and do not have a yard.
I spend the majority of my free time, disconnecting from the matrix, slowing things down, and doing the things that I love and make me whole & thrive. Lately, I find myself spending a lot of time at home either cooking for friends, teaching my girlfriends how to cook or with my dog at dog beach.
I absolutely love playing outside; anything from camping, boating, fishing, hiking on and off the beaten path to street fairs and music festivals. Spontaneously, a nice set of Calloway golf clubs followed me home and would love to learn how to play. I am an avid sports fan and love the San Francisco Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, NASCAR, watching surf competitions & golf. I would say that I am an adventurous woman. I can run through the mud and splash around the Pacific. I hunted and hiked the wilds of West Virginia, backpacked through Europe, camped through several storms and then did not think twice about strapping on sexy heels for a night out afterwards.
What I am not is a serial dater. I do not consume my free time and calendar with different men. Likewise, I am not interested meeting and bringing a serial dater into my life. I am also not interested in someone with an ego, self-esteem and self-worth so damaged that he needs constant validation from outside sources and multiple women.
I adore a man with a good sense of humor, who can hold me spellbound with a story or make me laugh until I cry. You keep me laughing and I will keep you fed. I also love creativity and passion. Maybe it is your love of ‘80s movies, watching Big Bang Theory, Dexter or Breaking Bad, or the fact that you are not afraid to display your childlike curiosity for new things and experiences.
The right man not only fascinates me, but also brings out the best in me. [b] We push each other to be the greatest people we can be.[/b] We bolster each others egos and we leave short, thoughtful love messages for each other when we’re apart. We never take for granted or assume that we know how each other feels about one another, we ensure our feelings are known, through our words and actions.
If you are comfortable in your own skin, have a strong sense of self, and are not afraid to expose your flaws, I am sure we will get along just fine. But, I will say that if you can keep me laughing, are a [b]San Francisco Giants fan,[/b] a part-time scientist or philosopher, I am already melting.
If you think as critically as Nietzsche, love as deeply as Johnny Cash, John Lennon, and especially George Burns...I am sold!
