My self-summary
I rush to the store after a very long day at work to get a few ingredients for a nice dinner at home. I'm picking out mangoes and limes (a must!), when I look up and catch your glance. I smile, you smile back. You offer your help in finding the sweetest mango for me and I accept. We "talk salad" for a while and I offer you a fun recipe, but you say you won't remember it, so I write it down for you and we part. As I walk away you say, "What if I need you taste test before I serve the salad? How do I find you?" I turn around, walk back to you and say,"___________." (You fill in the blank).

And that's how we may meet, but let's face it, we are all busy trying to be successful, active and well rounded that we just don't have the time, and the bar scene is really getting silly. So here we are! I don't think everything we want in another person will ever be in the perfect package, but I do have a weakness for a man who:

- can hold an engaging and intelligent dialogue
- knows how to flirt in a classy way/when the time is right
- likes to cook and entertain
- can dress with style (even when casually dressed
- is rugged, yet clean/a touch of metro is ok
- is funny and can can laugh at himself
- has common courtesy
- is honest
- respects and appreciates me (and expects the same in return)
- challenges me to be my best
- knows what it means to still be a man in today's society - treating a woman with respect and appreciation (aside from all those chivalrous gestures of course).

Long list? Yes it is...but I know what I want :)

I'm also certain that when two people who are meant to be together find each other, it will be a "no-brainer"!

About Me:

I love to get glammed-up for a night on the town, but I equally love my jean and flip flops. I love to cook and entertain, am pretty good around the grill and probably use it 9 months out of the year. I've recently decided to tap into my creative/artistic side - restarted playing the violin again (used to play in high school and was apparently taught all wrong), dabbling in some piano alongside my daughter and took a basic art class - drawing with live models with pencil/charcoal and loving getting my hands messy ;) The rest of my loves are: my daughter, orchids, lavender, massage, laughing until I'm crying and my face and belly hurt, wine, running, knitting, yoga, the beauty in every season with Spring and Summer as favorites, kids (well behaved ones of course), Seinfeld, dimples, warm hugs, foreign languages, sarcasm, my hair being played with, music (especially live), the ocean, being held in strong arms, coffee, honesty, intelligence, and eating every meal outside in the backyard.

I got into running a couples of years ago - - thanks to my BFF for talking me into signing up for a half marathon - got 3 in the books now and hope to keep running; cross training at the gym and swimming keep me fit. I Love the outdoors, especially the ocean and mountains; always down for a challenging hike. I'm as comfortable in a dress as I am in in camping gear - yes, I camp outdoors, not in a hotel :-)

To sum it up, I want a lifetime partner/friend/lover, who really knows what he wants - me; believes in two people bringing their best and worst to the table and learning from each other; someone who wants to grow together (not in size hopefully), and who wants to be in love 20 years from now as much as when we first felt it for each other - and it's obvious to everyone; the kind of connection that when at a busy party I look up, I find him glancing at me flirtatiously like the first time he caught my attention at the grocery store!
