Having said that, I am a nurturing person. I love to ask questions and seek answers. I have an education (I am sort of an A-type and I was always an A student), I love to make my friends laugh, I am athletic, I love music and art. I am extremely disciplined, I have a sense of artistry and adventure. I am not perfect but I strive for understanding and greatness in all aspects of life.
I believe simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. I am very much a substance over style sort of woman. The wisdom, heart and character of a man I am in a relationship with is far more important to me than the label sewn into his shirt. I am a big believer in the notion that how you make someone feel about themselves says more about who you are than it does them. Having said that, I care deeply about my friends and family. I have a great career that is a source of pride and personal fulfillment. Despite the pace and stress of life, I am a pretty happy go lucky person... And I can always see the humour in life.
I tend to get along with someone I can learn from. I am attracted to kind, educated and understated men who have a sense of purpose, substance and quiet confidence. I am looking for a man with an intelligent mind and a tender soul. A great teammate and confidant... Someone who is strong, nurturing and compassionate. Loves his family and friends. A man who others depend on, who knows life isn't perfect but can be a pillar of strength and light despite sometimes difficult circumstances. My faith is important to me, and would like to find a man who also has a sense of faith. And I don't mean only in the religious sense. I am looking for the type of person who would do anything for me, and vice-versa.
You don't have to be a showboat but I am attracted to people who care for themselves and respect their physical appearance.
If you send me a template message, I'll be entertained for a moment and your note may get a laugh you'll never hear because I won't feel compelled to respond. If you want to get to know me, be sincere and be yourself. Also, I prefer to date within the 34 to 42 age range.
It is important to be mindful of the words you use. I appreciate a gentleman. Please remember that when you address me.
Shine on you crazy diamond, =)
PS: Instagram is for 13 yr. old girls. If you're a man/grown-up we won't get along if you seek to validate your existence by posting selfies on social media.
PPS: Texting is fine in the beginning but if you insist on texting as a primary form of communication with me... You're probably just a robot.
