I have a boisterous laugh! I'm a lot of fun and although I enjoy being surrounded by people, I do need my private time now and then. I love animals and have four dogs and a cat. Yep, crazy dog lady here! If you're not an animal lover, we probably won't work out.
I used ride a scooter instead of a car (parking was MUCH easier!) and I had managed to ride it when the weather is down to about 15 degrees! But now I'm changing my career and have recently opened my own business, so my commute is a whopping three blocks and I don't need it anymore. My previous career was a long, successful one in tv news, but now I own my own brick and mortar store... if we meet, you'll have to stop by!
I live in the North End and love it here at this stage in my life. The sights, smells and people make this neighborhood magical. There is a sense of community here that I never experienced in my past (I'm originally from Miami!) I love to hang out at my local coffee shop and watch the locals and tourists doing their thing. It never ceases to make me smile.
I'd like to at some point get married, but for now I'm enjoying my life to the fullest! I'm not putting pressure on myself or anyone else to be the perfect match. Whatever will be, will be. And I intend on enjoying getting to know all of the people I meet until the one I'll marry comes along. I don't see myself moving way out into the suburbs either. I like the energy of the city and would not want to be too far removed from it. And I will never stop yearning for travel!! While I love children, I do think that I'm best suited to men who don't have any or have adult children.
I'm outspoken (which occasionally gets me into trouble), but at least you know I'm honest and I'll never make you guess what I'm thinking... I'll just tell you. I'm fiercely loyal, but I promise you, if you are in any way deceitful, disrespectful, distant, if you ever "shut down" on me, or show any measure of cruelty or disregard, I will not take the abuse. I'm far from perfect, but I deserve a good and honest man and will settle for nothing less.
I like all types of music, from classical to classic rock to Eurotrash pop, although country and rap are pretty much lost on me (with a few exceptions). I like intellectual AND trash tv!! I love wine and love learning about it. I'm a foodie.
I find humor in most things. I've had my share of problems in my life but do my best to laugh them off once they've passed. I don't dwell on the things that have hurt me or made me sad (well, not for too long at least!) I do my best to live in the moment, because I believe that the moment is the only thing that's guaranteed.
Who am I looking for? Someone with a similar or complementary outlook on life. Here are a few qualities that attract me: intelligence, sense of adventure, love of animals, love of travel, passion (for whatever it is that you're passionate about... including me!). I also like a man who is articulate (please be able to communicate and know the proper usage of "you're and your", etc), who proofreads his profile, who takes pride in his appearance and how he presents himself to the world, who is outgoing, and who appreciates a slightly inappropriate sense of humor... namely mine!
Finally, if you've read all of this, then you might be intrigued and if so, please write!
Thank you for your time. I have to go walk my dogs now! I hope to hear from you soon.
