But please, don’t be alarmed! To add a little levity to the conversation, I’m a music junkie, bewitched by books, drink coffee in copious amounts and consider myself a runner.
I'm bi-racial. My mother was born and raised in Germany. My father is African American and born and raised in Philly.
I’m an equal opportunity dater. I take delight in getting to know ones heritage and background.
I have two children, both girls. A 7-year old and the other is 25 and living in Las Vegas.
I can be shallow, yet deep and profound. I prefer the latter, but I do recognize that I’m a mere mortal. Some shallowness is a necessity, for example:
I’m VERY much a girlie girl; I’m all about keeping my body in good shape and working order, as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy a good mani/pedi, and I'm a fanatic about good hygiene.
Bona-fide fashion whore; I love a good shoe, handbag, baubles of all sorts, and do my best to stay in ‘trend’. I’m like a cougar on the hunt for a great bargain. I refuse to pay full retail on most items, but have been known to make exceptions. Yep, it’s pretty safe to say, shopping is an orgasmic experience for me and what female doesn't like to feel pretty? I do it for me.
Complete conversational lush. Intellectual chemistry is a major turn on. I enjoy banter and large doses of sarcasm. Enjoy esoteric rants.
I despise 'LOL', 'HMU', and other various text acronyms. Although, I don't mind texting, I do like the occasional phone conversation. I'm old fashioned in that sense and believe in the art of conversation.
Looking for someone who reads books and enjoys the studies of life.
Major geek. Go figure, right?! I like Star Wars, the Lord of the Rings trilogy and most things Sci-Fi.
I tend to migrate towards men who have a certain 'edge' about them and embrace their inner geek and quirkiness.
Very rarely, am I ever shocked by something. I've pretty much experienced it, seen it, heard it, or read about it.
I’m both an optimist and pessimist. Sh*t let’s face it. It’s a pretty F’d up world we live in.
On that note, I do want to make a difference in humanity. Even if it's just in small everyday gestures.
Major OCD, clean freak does not begin to describe it. I enjoy cleaning. It’s therapeutic. I’ll leave it at this, everything has its place and there’s a place for everything.
I hate surprises. That’s the OCD, rearing its ugly head again. Chaos messes with my chi.
I can be a bit of a neurotic and tend to over think and analyze everything.
Constant dreamer, and prescribe to the thought that dreaming can manifest itself into reality.
Politically, I'm very liberal and proud of it!
My favorite color is green.
Love cats, will tolerate dogs.
I remain a constant work under construction.
As a right of passage (divorced), I had my nose pierced, and added a new tattoo to my right inner forearm, which reads “Never failure, always a lesson”. It’s a nice, constant, reminder of where I've been and where I want to go. In addition, I recently added a new one to my collection, which is the quote, “I am rooted, yet I flow.” ... an excerpt from Virginia Woolf's "To The Lighthouse".
Despite divorce, I will always remain a hopeless romantic. Although, romance has eluded me, I keep hope alive. I believe in LOVE and that you can love several people in one lifetime.
I'm currently enrolled in school to further my education.
My new, favorite quote:
"We've all been somebody's "disappointment" at one point or another, it's a part of life. I've given up on trying to be anybody's dream, I've had to endure too many nightmares myself. But... I can be your friend, confidant, motivator, support system, refuge, peace, etc... I just can't be your fairytale, it'd require me to be a lie. All I can be is my genuine, flawed, good intentioned, mistake prone self. May not sound like a dream, but at least it's real. But... If you're too quick to box me in, that's on you, I don't feel it's necessary to prove to you that you're missing out. I know who I am. I'm confident in my being and committed to growing. That's either going to be enough for you or it isn't. When it's all said and done... You'll see what's real... You'll see who's true."
In closing, I have a very deep and complex personality. I will no longer tolerate someone who is only willing to wallow in shallow waters. I travel by foot and by foot, it's a slow climb, but I'm good at being uncomfortable, so I can't stop changing all the time...
