I'm a no-nonsense kind of girl and dating is not my thing. I just want to find a connection with someone whom I can enjoy, respect, admire, and love (among other things). I don't care what your hobbies are or where you've traveled or how many marathons you've run. I especially don't care if you do yoga or eat quinoa. None of that matters to me. I just want to know you're kind and decent and flexible and generous (among other things) and open to letting me love you the way you need/want to be loved and visa versa, for the long haul.
Recently I've been told by a single guy that I'm fascinating, intriguing, interesting, smart, funny, and he admires me for the way I've lived my life. I've asked a married friend what about me he finds appealing and he said I'm compassionate, passionate, creative, voluptuous, inquisitive by nature, and stimulating.
As for me, I'd describe myself as decent, sensitive, rational, communicative, old fashioned, affectionate, introverted (no one else would describe me as that though), moral, and practically dyin' for someone I can look up to.
I'm attracted to masculine men (not macho, but masculine). Midwesterner types with talent and manners, know-how and respect, good work ethic...so appealing! Turn offs are tattoos, drug users, drinkers, pansies (I don't know how else to say it), feminine guys, guys who can't or don't know how to do things for themselves.
I value common sense, chivalry, fortitude (both mental/emotional and physical), curiosity, clean living, reliability, and integrity.
I don't like tempers, laziness, excessive drinking, drugs of any kind, crowds, cities, and loud stuff.
I like being out in nature, quiet, animals (especially cats), learning, cooking, road tripping, camping. You know, all the regular stuff.
I'm the kind of woman you want/need by your side.
