I kindly ask that u please actually read my profile before u choose to message me. I don't want to waste anybody's time, and my own, so I have put together a little rundown of what I am NOT looking for, before I get into the part of convincing u of how fabulous I am. :-)
Unfortunately, I have been with my fair share of jerks, cheaters, and liars. This is me being as straight-up and honest as possible, as I believe in not only respecting and honoring myself, but also giving u the respect of laying it all out, so that there are no misunderstandings or miscommunication. If anything, being with the wrong guys in the past has surely taught me what I don't want or need in my life. Life is too short to waste time with someone who isn't good for my soul, my body, and my mind, so I want to sincerely thank u for taking the time to read my profile. :)
If u are someone who enjoys going out to bars, clubs, and likes to drink a lot....u are not the man for me.
If u don't know what the term "gentleman" means, and u are a player, I am definitely not interested, so keep it moving. I desperately want to believe that chilvary is not dead, but waiting to find a man who can prove that!!
If u are incapable of writing a message that consists of more than "Hey sexy", or "You're hot", then please don't waste my time. Be original. I genuinely appreciate a man who is expressive and passionate. Extra points for intelligence with great spelling and/or grammar!! ;)
If u are a douchebag, are rude and disrespectful, lack general manners and insist on oogling every woman that walks by in a tight dress....no. No, no, and no.
I do NOT want a man who has been to prison. Ever.
I detest guns, as I am a total free spirited hippie at heart. If u love guns/own guns/hunt, u just aren't for me.
**side note**It isn't necessary to send me an aggressive message and call me names just because I don't like guns. That isn't going to change my mind...and it only makes u look like a crazy asshole. :)
Lastly, I'm not looking to date anyone who has a child. I've had nothing but awful experiences with that, so I have to be honest.
Now for....some random facts about me:
I am a peace-loving, passionate, caring, affectionate, artistic, and honest woman.
I am definitely a relationship type of lady, and very loyal to my partner, family, and friends.
I work as a client services rep/assistant tech at a busy veterinary clinic in Scottsdale. I have two little dogs that are my "kids", and absolutely love animals!
Originally from Illinois, I have also lived in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas, and now here. Being a true Midwest girl at heart, I love me some meat and potatoes, honey!! Cornfed! On that same note, I have those good Midwestern values.
I am an open book. Life is too short to be dishonest to yourself and people around u. "If u have nothing to hide, u hide nothing."
I am a spiritual person, but no certain denomination. I pray, I am grateful. I am blessed. The simplicity of my faith is awesome, and it has kept me going through some tough times in my life.
I absolutely love Coca Cola. Yes, I am fully aware of how bad it is for me, blah, blah, blah...but most likely I will have one in my hand. I'm drinking one right now as I write this.
Physically, I am 5'4 and have a curvy body that most men have described to me as "not too big, not too skinny-just right". I have red/brown hair, freckles, fair skin, and grey-green eyes. I also have some ink on my body and love the art of tattoo.
Other than that, I have been spending a lot of time with family & friends. I have experienced a lot of loss over the last two months, but I am ready to get back out there.
I am also really good with animals, because I love them more than I do most people. :)
I'm the one at the party who is in the corner petting the dog and talking to him.
I've also been told I can "throw it down" in the kitchen. I do like to cook for someone special.
I also get told that I have a nice voice, which is good (considering I do voiceovers on the side).
Favorite TV Shows: Spartacus, Six Feet Under, Chappelle Show, Louie, Weeds, Parenthood, Modern Family, Project Runway,Sex in the City, Grey's Anatomy, Oprah, and medical shows on Discovery Health Channel. I am also a documentary junkie.
Favorite Movies: American Beauty, Crash, Magnolia, Dirty Dancing, Forrest Gump, Ghost, Goonies (80s classic!!), A League of Their Own, Toy Story, A Bug's Life, etc. (the kid in me loves Disney movies)
For books, I love and own every book ever written by Nicholas Sparks, because I love all that sappy romantic crap. Hahaha
Iyanla Vanzant writes a lot of amazing uplifting books for women, so of course I own all of those as well. I am into reading a lot of self-motivation books to keep growing and improving myself in every way I can. :)
3) My dogs...my canine kids
4) My friends
6) Love. <3
Personal growth, being eager to learn new things, and also increasing my faith in humanity.
I also think about my craft (singing) and writing my record. I'm a perfectionist, so I always think there is room for improvement. I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself.
I think about the world we live in. War. Corporate greed. Politics.
If I am not hanging with friends or family, u can find me at home, cuddling up in my sweats with my dogs while watching some Netflix, and/or writing music and poetry. Sometimes I will even get wild, and bust out the paintbrushes and a blank canvas and go to town.
Despite being hurt so badly, I still do believe in love. I believe that the man for me is out there.
The kind of man I am most physically attracted to is tall, dark, and handsome, and I am open to dating all different races. I love facial hair, as I think it adds to the masculinity appeal of a man. Rawr! I DEFINITELY appreciate a man with a muscular physique. Sorry skinny boys! :(
Also, I am a sucker for exotic or foreign guys...there is something very sexy about an accent.
I am looking for a man who just wants to be with me. I need a good man with a big heart. One who is LOYAL, honest, caring, passionate, funny, intelligent, and sensitive. I want to feel protected and secure, so I like big strong macho men, who are teddy bears on the inside. Also, I definitely appreciate a witty sense of humor.
Chemistry....physical, mental, spiritual, sexual...it has to be there. U cannot force chemistry.
Very important....MUST love dogs. My two little canine kids mean a lot to me, and I want a man who is willing to give them attention and belly rubs. :)
I really appreciate a gentleman who knows the definition of "chilvary" in the sense of opening doors for me, holding my hand, saving me from the wrath of bugs and spiders, and walking on the street side of the sidewalk to protect me from oncoming traffic....not that I typically tend to wander out into traffic, or that I am some helpless and/or pampered princess type; a man who puts thought and effort into those little things and treats me like I'm his queen will most definitely get my appreciation and respect...and I will treat him like my king!!
Basically, I am looking for a best friend who I can share my life with and give my love to. Someone who I can sit in complete silence with, and feel so absolutely comfortable. A man who I can tell my deepest darkest secrets to, and share my fears and dreams with. Someone I can lay around with on a lazy Sunday afternoon and laugh with one moment, and have a deep and meaningful conversation with the next.
If that is u I described...look no further...I'm right here waiting!!! :-)
