There is a deep well of sexy that traverses through the mountains of classicism, intelligence, and creative wonder in me. Maybe you'll get it upon our first meeting. I am a passionate person. I'm comfortable in my skin and my soul is in tact.
Loving, loyal, generous, and thoughtful. I love working with my hands (cooking, painting, gardening, etc. – why, what were you thinking!?!?)
Italian-American. Born and raised in Chicago (with the attitude and wit to show for it!) Zero drama. Low maintenance. Clear on what I want and after meeting me, you should be too.
My favorite thing in this world is to be lost forever and a day in a kiss with the right person. You know the one where you are all of sudden connected with that feeling you haven't had in a long time and are so grateful to have found it again. How could I have gone without this? Was I not truly alive? Chemistry. The one that touches every cell in your body, and theirs, and you know this because every breath within that kiss is an exchange between you two. Yes.
I will always tell you what I need because as amazing as you are, I know that you are not a mind reader. Yes, I said it. ;) When you are upset or angry, unless otherwise expressed, I will give you space so you can come back to me. I don't like playing games. Not how long I should wait or when I should call crap because it feels "too real - too fast." It's like being upset for getting what you want. Knock it off. If it feels right - then lets go for it! Relationships should be easy. Life is challenging - not love. Love is not something earned - it just IS.
In a lover I really appreciate passion, integrity, intelligence & humor. There is nothing sexier to me than wit; a man who is quietly confident; a man who looks at me with discovering eyes and pulls me up into a kiss. A man who gets me and doesn't waste my time or his.
With the unspoken, or at times over stated need for chemistry, which is paramount to our getting to the place of wanting to explore with each other, I hope to find it with someone again. But chemistry is the essential & first ingredient.
I'm a pretty good cook so I hope you enjoy eating or having fun in the kitchen! I love and appreciate food - how it feeds our bodies, minds, friends & family. I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to fresh, and organic ingredients. Quality matters, purely and simply just like my friendships.
The little things:
Less is more and I definitely have learned to cherish the little things in life. Feeling random moments like they could be your last. I recently lost my dad - who was my champion so I am clearly in this space of feeling "temporary."
I appreciate nature particularly the ocean and the mountains and respect how they are ever changing. I do have a special affinity for trees and rocks. I've done my fair share of traveling and I am definitely not done.
I choose to surround myself with people who love life too - who are positive, and despite repetitive challenges & obstacles, still can laugh, smile, get up and keep moving forward.
As for children. I'm open to them as a result of the love I share with my partner. BUT - having a partner is first and foremost to me with or without kids.
Be who you say you are, especially your age.
Have integrity. Seriously, if you can't say what you mean & mean what you say and know that they are connected...
Keep your side of the street clean...
Live in the truth of reality or in the heart of your dreams - keep movin' on.
I know there is a lot written here and I don't expect it all to be read. Your eyes will seek out the words you want to see and give you what you need. I just gave you more options! lol
Thank you for reading and happy hunting!
