Are you looking for the girl-next-door? Let me save you from having to read my entire profile... Keep looking. It's not me.
I'm very independent, I LOVE my job, but when I'm not working, I like to have a lot of fun. My work takes me away from home quite often, however I would like to enjoy the company of someone special when I am in town. I don't care if it's hanging out for happy hour at Yard House or dinner at Le Cirque or dancing at Tao or just chilling out at home, I'm happy as long as I'm spending time with someone I like and who likes me back just as much.
I am well-travelled, have lived in three continents, fluent in three languages, fairly conversational in two others, and currently working on learning another. I would like to meet someone who is just as passionate about different cultures and seeing new places, or at least open to the possibility of getting to visit these places in the future.
I know my way around a kitchen just as well as I know my way around Barneys and Saks. I can make a 5-course French dinner and you can bet I'll look good while I'm at it - and I'd like to meet a guy who can appreciate that. I will admit that I can get caught up in labels and maintaining a certain image or appearance - and I hope that my date cares about his image and appearance, too. To be quite honest, I enjoy taking care of myself and I'll do what I want with my money, thank you very much.
High maintenance? YES. I spoil myself like it's my job. I don't settle. If I'm not treated as well as or better than how I treat myself, I'd rather be on my own, thanks (I mean, seriously, wouldn't you?) ...And if you don't hate me by now and are still reading this, congratulations. The truth is that I am spoiled but I am just as capable of (if not even worse at) spoiling someone I truly care about.
A lot of people will right away dismiss me as being shallow and superficial and I probably won't even deny it but I am hoping to meet someone who can see the substance beyond the surface.
Looks are important. I can't be with anyone I'm not attracted to. Don't take it personally. I'm sure my pictures have absolutely nothing to do with the fact that you're even reading this.
I have no time for men who are still trying to find themselves without really knowing what it is that they are looking for in the first place. I would like to meet someone who knows exactly what he wants to do with his life and has already achieved some major goals, and working on achieving more. I want someone who is already established. I have done my share of "charity work," "beta testing," and "product development" in my 20's and at the moment, have no interest in investing my time or money on start-ups.
No passport? No, thank you. If you haven't ventured beyond the borders of these United States, we won't have very much to talk about.
Apart from that, my date needs to be passionate about something - ANYTHING. I cannot stand people who have no passion for anything and are indifferent. There are so many good things in life that there is absolutely no reason to have come this far and not find anything to be passionate about.
And yes, my teeth really are that white.
1. Using old pictures on your profile is just as bad as lying and I'm not going to be nice about it. At all.
2. If you have better pictures of your pets than you do of yourself and/or have sunglasses on in all your pictures I will assume that:
a.) something is horribly wrong with your face
b.) you are a wanted fugitive and afraid of being identified
c.) you're actually on Match to find a date for your golden retriever
d.) all of the above
3. "I just love looking at pictures of blazing sunsets, breathtaking ocean views, and vast mountain landscapes on dating sites!" said NO ONE, ever.
