I myself am a passionate person, (I'm not subdued in demeanor if you know what I mean... in a good way) and it is more pronounced for things like: interior design, antiques, politics, food, poetry, history, how we interact as human beings (especially in the dating realm...haha), books, art, movies, traveling, creativity, family, kids and many other passions. It's hard not to fit it all in...so much to learn!
In terms of love, I am ready for it. And I want, "real love, inconvenient love, all consuming, can't live without each other love". I am paraphrasing from one of my favorite TV shows, ever. If you know it, I would be monumentally impressed!
So, I am ready for marriage! Right about now you're thinking, "Oh shit, she said marriage", and my response is, "You bet your sweet ass I did"! I am waiting for my best friend/husband to enter my life. I will never say life partner because I hate political, bullshit correctness. And, yes, I realize to get to that point one must date, hence my presence here!
I know the above might make me seem very serious, but I am not! I don't take myself too seriously, and am enjoying my life everyday-- I just know what I want at this point which is to take "dating" to the next level when I meet the right man! And, I hope honesty is attractive...?
I have a lot more to say, but I think this gives a good idea as to the type of woman I am.
Lastly, I enjoy my career for sure, but I am spreading my focus to other arenas in life. Right now, I am driven by love, and marriage...and babies soon enough.
Since, I haven't landed a job with a firm, yet, I have been really building the E-bay business up, which I am very satisfied with and my ultimate goal is to work as an Interior Designer, restoring old homes for clients, and the E-bay store and also a website for other Interior Designers to source one-of-a-kind items for their clients...from me.
If you are looking for something, hit me up, I can find it! I am also in the planning stages of a website...sort of like American Pickers, but maybe I'll call it Urban Pickers!
2) Cooking when I feel like it- that's why I need a partner in crime because cooking for one is not as fun.
3) Push-ups until I had two shoulder surgery 3 years ago; working on rebuilding strength right now with yoga!
4) Picking out presents for people... I have a genuine knack for it!
5) I'd like to add window glazier and stucco patch work to the mix; learned both from my Dad and I'm becoming quite handy!
6) I'm a really great friend and like doing things for the people I love.
7) I'm a good kisser or so I've been told!
Ruth Reichl, travel writing books, history books (trying to get into), Emily Dickinson's poetry, Twilight at Monticello, The Element, Eat Pray Love, Wild...I could go on for forever!

Family and Friends
Being married and having kids... always been a part of my plan in life
Having passion for life
Health... after two shoulder surgeries and skin cancer at 29...you get the picture...
Water, Dark Chocolate, Rib Eye, Peanut Butter and anything w/chocolate and sea salt combined...OMG!
You want to get out and mingle and have fun! Everyone is so dang serious about these 1st dates!
You like my profile and you're open to love...in an organic way…we meet, start hanging out, fall in love and voila! I've had the opposite: in love after one date type of scenario and a bit controlling.
You're happy and life is looking good!
You are heading in the same direction as me- life goals, dreams, etc.
Or if you know Dennis Prager and Michael Medved and think they are the bomb, then obviously we view life the same way.
