I am first and foremost a lady. Kind of old-fashioned, and playfully sassy with an artist's spirit. Maybe Caravaggio. Or Dali. But NOT because of his art...because I love his whimsy mustache and limitless imagination. I think I was English royalty at some point during the 1600s which is maybe where the old-fashioned bit comes in and also explains why I can do an English accent really well. But in no way am I THAT buttoned up. On the contrary, I prefer a plunging neckline. I have a lovely décolleté. So maybe I was French aristocracy at some point too. I can appreciate spontaneity; some of the most memorable moments in my life were based on the unexpected. I'm teaching myself to be ambidextrous. I'm originally from Chicago (but the accent is ever so slight.) And if I ever came back as a man, I'd be a pro baseball player. For real.
I can't really say I have an ideal "match", but these are the character traits I value and want in a man, and then we can work from there:
1.) Confidence is very important to me. I am willing to try anything but insecurity is not one of them. Confident men are the most attractive, no matter what they look like. This is why it's my numero uno.
2.) Sharp wit. I value smarts and an intelligent exchange of words. I can't imagine anything sexier. This is not to be confused with sarcasm. I can only take that in small doses, but a witty mofo? I can listen to him all night. I mean, have you seen the conversation Bogey has with Bacall in The Big Sleep about "horses"?
3.) Politeness. I appreciate men with a generally positive attitude who treats others with respect. This says a lot about your character. I'd love it if you were polite AND assertive. It means you have the exceptional talent of knowing how to speak to people and getting what you want without being mean, but gaining respect and admiration instead. Now THAT'S hot.
4.) Physical attraction is very important. Though it is important, I do need to be mentally stimulated too, captivated really. So yes, though I do care about looks, I'm not looking for someone based solely on their appearance, but someone I'm attracted to. This would only enhance the physical aspect to the nth degree.
And that's it. Is that too much to ask?
