I'm not looking for a sugar daddy or a baby daddy. I don't need to borrow your car or even 20 bucks. I want to hear your voice and to hear your stories. I'm sure you have some great stories. I want to laugh until our sides hurt...in the bar, in the car, in bed. I want to feed you from my kitchen and from my heart. And I want to be fed. I want to share fiery passion with my best friend...yeah...that's it.
And now for some of the basics:
I'm a registered nurse with a great job...a dream job, actually. I'm a very lucky nurse.
Mom to 2 interesting, accomplished, independent, adult kids. We're close but I don't hover. They live in NYC and I miss the heck out of them.
Pet parent to a little clown named Parsley. She's half pug and half crazy and she makes me laugh every day.
Passionate about learning, growing, and listening to both sides of the story.
Culinary school grad and still love to cook and entertain...mostly comfort food...fresh and seasonal...nothing fancy or complicated. I love ethnic restaurants and exploring markets of all types. I once read that the best way to know if a restaurant is great is if there are police cars and pick up trucks in the parking lot. Try it...it's true!
My bags are packed and I'm ready to go...anywhere. I have a valid passport and a passion for seeing and tasting everything!
What qualities would my sweetheart possess? Wit, intelligence, experience, passion, compassion, thoughtfulness. Confident. Strong. Big personality. A bit of a rebel, even. Not afraid to get his hands dirty. Dependable, ethical, selfless (at times). Stands up to bullies. Stands up to me and can also take me down. Keeps secrets...sometimes confesses. Good talker...better listener. Willing to teach...willing to learn. Holds hands. Gives bear hugs. Loves to kiss. Passionate. My best friend.
