I'm English born & raised - Liverpool. Just to hit the high points - left Liverpool at 21, got a job in Frankfurt, Germany for a few years. Married, moved to Indiana, Arizona, Florida, Texas, then Maryland, and here I've been since.
I've learned to be fairly strong and independent. I always keep an open mind about people and look for what they're about on a deeper level. I really don't have a whole "grocery list" of things that a man should have - I'm very open minded and one can be utterly surprised by the people you become attracted to when you least expect it. I've been artsy all my life and my work has afforded me the opportunity to work on some famous faces which has been great.
For me, a man doesn't have to be a George Clooney, or great looking - most important is that he has good core values, a good sense of humor and obviously intelligent.
(If you have a Harley that would be a nice, but not a deal breaker if you don't - we can walk after all!! just love taking those road trips).
