I have a dog, Daisy, and she runs the show. She's a 3 year old American Bulldog and she's like my child. So "must love dogs" is def a requirement.
I have a successful career, wonderful home, great friends and family. I feel like i'm at that point in my life where I am in a good place, healthy, and ready to share it with someone else. I don't date much, most recent was a 2 year relationship that was rocky and I realized I needed to move on. I had a long term relationship when I was in my teens/20's (8 years) and after that remained single up until my recent 2 year relationship. During my 'single time' I focused a lot on my career and establishing a good foundation for myself.
What I am looking for.... I need someone who is independent, established, loving, romantic, strong, and is willing/able to take charge. It seems hard to find that balance in someone who is emotional and sensitive, yet confident and a bit 'alpha'. I'm typically the one who 'wears the pants' but I think i'd be more compatable with someone who was aggressive enough to take the lead every now and again. I'm NOT bossy, controlling, jealous, etc. In a room full of people saying 'what should we do' I'd be the person to step up and take charge.
.I am flexible with my time. I set up my own days. I don't report to an office. I want to travel more (for pleasure) and explore some of the wonderful things the world has to offer!
I recently picked up golf... LOVE IT! I wouldn't say i'm good but i am definatly not bad. I also have gone skiing a few times these past two winters. I am kind of a natural at it except I sometimes will let my fear get the best of me and i'll wuss out! :) I love bowling and volleyball. Have been on a few leagues/teams over the years.
I think that's about all I have to say.... if this sounds interesting to you, give me a shout! Ohh one slight disclaimer... If you're not close to me (Chicago) and you're not at least 5'11" tall, i'm sorry, i'm going to politely pass. Being a tall woman is hard enough, i don't want no short short man - then I feel like a beast!
Last but not least - don't be afraid to ask me out! I don't like going back and forth a million times. If I reply and we go back and forth 2-3 times.... It's time to plan a date. Afterall, that's why we are on here, fellas!
