PLEASE READ: I am looking for someone near me on the west side. No need to "wink" if you live in the “greater Los Angeles” area like Long Beach, Pomona, Valencia etc. Every pot has a lid and while you may be a wonderful guy, it's not what I am after. To be by your side, I am not interested in driving long distances but the comedic side of me wants to tell you IF you just happen to live in the 10021 zip code, the 6th in Paris or the hills of Montecito I might reconsider my “near me” boyfriend! ; ) If this makes sense and you "get" my reference please continue to read… : )
A little about me:
I am a playful, worldly, girlie-girl (pink always makes me smile) with a certain streak of determination and wit. I grew up in Dallas so a little "Steel Magnolia" I guess…
I adore fancy and glamorous kinds of things but I need that balanced with my passion for nature – it’s what keeps me grounded.
I am fiercely loyal and am known for keeping friends secrets safe.
I am known for having great style and flourish when I cook and entertain for my friends and family.
I don’t have children but if you do that's a plus with me – I am the product of having a stellar stepmom so I know the challenges of that role.
I am comfortable in knowing it is ok to “like what you like” but I am open to new things that someone could inspire me with…
I am a better match with a man who is also a bit worldly, pretty cultured and more of a sophisticate than just a “jeans and t-shirt” kind of guy. If I had to narrow it down I'd say a "suit type" - leave the "creative type" for me, that's my side of the coin! ; )
I have more in common with the kind of guy that pushed himself academically when he was young thus going on to earn a higher education resulting in a guy who slays dragons during the day but can relax with me at night.
I need smart and challenging conversations – I love learning and like to be inspired so that connection in my relationship is key for me.
I need my "partner in crime" who I can't wait to smooch on when I see him, someone who get's me, challenges me, inspires me, makes me feel safe to let my hair down and be goofy!
A guy who is or can be very social and who knows his way around a wine (or spirits) list, an international airport here and there and has some connection with nature or the outdoors.
Is well mannered, meaning; like knowing that you give the lady the banquet side of the booth, walks on the traffic side of the street and knows how to tip the waitress for a better table for us.
What I am trying to describe is a little “old school” juxtaposed by a guy that likes nature too- I do live in California after all!
Confidence, multiple languages spoken, an open-minded POV, good manners, ordering for a lady (I do really love this), smart dinner conversations, humor, kindness, hands, soulful eyes, interest and knowledge of: wine, art, history, technology and business.
Facial hair (sorry fellas – goatees are just not my thing but if you are participating in "Movember" or happen to look like George Clooney LOL I might rethink this one), abrasive attitudes, not asking questions, poor manners, not opening doors for others and intolerance.
