Don't consider me for you. Consider me for your brother, best friend, cousin, co worker. Consider me for that someone (male) in your life that you think deserves someone wonderful in his life. My pictures are a true/actual representation of my present self. I consider myself a pretty no nonsense person. I'm not looking for a FWB. My aim is to find a long term relationship. I want to date someone who lives near me. I believe proximity is important. I don't want to wait more than an hour to see my special someone. And I want to see my special someone more than once a week. For those who live outside of the Bay Area, or out of state, and yes out side of the country and the Western hemisphere, thanks for the messages, but I'm not interested; I'm not open to long distance relationships, and I won't engage in video chats. I've come to learn that you're usually after cyber sex (online video chats where you take off your clothes and try to get me out of mine). Some men may be satisfied with that type of interaction, but I'm not. If I can't reach out and touch you, then it's all an unsatisfying mind game. My summary follows.
I'm not shy. I'm quiet when first observing something, then grow bolder and sassy when I'm comfortable. I'm even tempered, generally polite and considerate in nature. But I can't say I'm sweet. I'm also not sour, rough, or harsh; I'm direct. It's never my intention to hurt anyone; I apologize if I injure someone. I'm sincere; there's no false face here. I believe in fair play. A person's actions should match up with their words. I value good communication and good manners. I'm reliable; I have a low tolerance for "fake/flakey" individuals. I value my time, and I won't waste yours. Personality wise, I'm a happy person. I rarely feel down. I laugh a lot and play well with others. I follow the rules. There is no drama in my life because I'm not having it! I know life can be filled with disappointment. I take things in stride. I seldom throw a tantrum. But if I feel wronged, I'll let you know. If I'm knocked down, I get right back up. I root for the underdog. I'm thrilled when David bests Goliath. This world is filled with so many different types of people and personalities. I respect the difficulty of finding a match. Mutual attraction, intrigue, admiration, and common interests aren't easy to find. I hope someone out there fits my bill, and I his. If you're looking for someone sweet, quiet, and meek, I'm not her. If your looking for someone strong, sexy, passionate, capable, quick witted with a sarcastic edge (not mean spirited), you may have found her. I believe in being good to everyone in general, and wonderful to those that are special to me in particular. But I'm no doormat. For those men out there that are looking for a woman who doesn't take herself too seriously, my response is:" if I don't take myself seriously, you won't take me seriously." Believe it or not, I'm not uptight. I just haven't lost my dignity. It takes all kinds to make the world go round. At times I can be spontaneous and whimsical. But don't get it twisted. Work goes before fun. I work hard. On my off time, I want to enjoy myself. That means I don't want to waste my time with individuals who won't commit to plans or have no follow through. There is a funny, sexy, lighter side to me for my friends and family. In posting this ad, I hope to find a happy, strong, smart, funny, confident man with whom I can relax and share my free time. Finally, I fall somewhere between girly and sporty. I like to get dressed up, but I'm not afraid to get dirty...unless I'm dressed up :).
