Seriously, don't write me if you are not ready to be in a relationship. Be very clear and very ready. I have a full life and want a partner to share it with. If that's not where you are, I hope you find what you're looking for.
We're at least an 80% match
You actually Want to be in a Real relationship (i.e. you want to be someone's Boyfriend. If you don't, don't waste my time... I cannot stress this enough.)
You're a gentleman
You use standard American English, proper grammar (at least an attempt to), or spell out words (it's YOU not U). Use punctuation. Sometimes it's difficult to understand what you mean without it. Plus, I hate to be the English teacher, but I get some horrific messages that make me question whether some of you went to high school. You would think I wouldn't have to say this but..
You're Agnostic or Atheist (no hardcore Christians; I'm Not a God fearing Christian woman)
You're honest... as in telling the Whole truth, not just not telling lies/half truths or misleading (again, you would think I wouldn't have to spell this out)
You are confident
You like Jazz, even if only a little bit
You're a little cheesy, little dorky, little goofy
You're a hopeful romantic
You're a good guy looking for a good girl
People say you're a sweetheart
You took the time to actually READ what I wrote (this page)... I know it's long.
(Please don't be the asshole who didn't read any of this before writing me.)
Really, I am just a nice girl looking for a nice, stand up guy...
I want something easy, fun and meaningful. I'm looking for my complement... Someone to chill at the house with as well as go out, party and have a good time, can roll with life's punches and not sweat the small fights/disagreements (let's face it, we're adults, probably set in our ways a bit. To assume we're not going to disagree would be foolish. How quickly we can get past it is key. ). Someone to cook for, share mutual foot rubs, push me out of my comfort zone at times and rub my belly when I don't feel well. Call me old fashioned but I take love, romance, sex and emotions pretty seriously (not so much this site, even though the algorithms seem to work well for me). I'm a one-at-a-time dater, as in I only date one person at a time - hoping you are too, looking for something longer term. I'm really not interested in investing time and emotion in someone who's looking for a booty call or a simply sexual relationship. Not that I have anything against it, that's just not where I'm at. If you are... I hope you find what you are looking for... it's not me.
Now that that's out of the way...
I am a California girl with southern roots. My family moved from Southern Georgia when I was a little kid, am the only member of my immediate family to grow up here in California and the south comes out a little in just about every part of my life/me (except politically). I am very feminine... truly a girlie girl (my favorite color is pink and everything), but can hang with the big boys. I'm fairly shy and quiet until you get to know me. I drink often, but not a lot... I know my limits, can handle my liquor and I don't get drunk often. The only time you will see a cigarette in my hand is when I'm drunk, stressed or pissed... which isn't often either. I'm creative, introverted, passionate, flirty, sensitive, old fashioned, driven and complicated.
I love food. I love fatty food. My idea of the four major food groups are bacon, wine, cheese and butter. *If you don't eat bacon, or any kind of pig, you might want to move on. I eat a lot of it...* I love a good burger and sometimes something healthy. I try to at least have a salad a day these days. I do eat vegetables... I love cake.
Outside of the kitchen I love theatre (though its been forever since I've seen anything), going to bars, a good cocktail or glass of wine, hanging out with friends, watching movies, "the game" and listening to music. I also have a couple writing projects. I'm not terribly physically active; I don't hike, ride a bike or go camping. I can be persuaded to take a walk from time to time... (that walk being on a beach doesn't hurt...)
