Right off the bat, I have to say, please read my profile and pay special attention to the age range in which I'm interested. 40 and over need not apply. I'm sure you're interesting, I'm just not ready to go there.
I'm tired of the games and the drama. Don't enjoy them and don't invite them into my life. I'm looking for someone who is laid back, likes to have fun, and makes me laugh. Didn't think that was a tall order, but my dating life proves otherwise! :)
I like someone who is comfortable in many different situations and around different types of people. Okay, maybe not 100% comfortable, but can at least hang in there for a while. I believe in honest, open communication - I love listening and being supportive and I think my partner should do the same for me. You should never feel stifled, like you can't express yourself.
My family is a big part of my life, and I'm looking for someone who feels the same.
I enjoy going "out on the town" sometimes, but I'm probably most happy curled up on the couch with a good book or movie and a glass of wine. Simple pleasures!
Overall, I think that someone who doesn't stress about the little things in life and can make me laugh is very sexy. Also, boys, pay attention...I am 5'9" and I ain't afraid of heels. You should just know that going into it. Have a little confidence about a real woman. :)
