Collaborative creative person, confident, happy, hard working, open
minded, solid moral compass. I can be a bit reserved when I first
meet someone, but will let out my pretty smart side (no comma
there, but easy on the eyes too) and silly side once/if I feel we
are on the same page. I have a sly somewhat dry wit, am
affectionate, creative, and fairly no nonsense. I'm earnest and
tender, but that doesn't mean there's not a warm place in my heart
for a little sarcasm.
I'd like to meet someone fun and smart and goal oriented...not to
go on with the adjectives too much but intelligent, loyal, kind,
and mostly self-assured without being arrogant (imperfect is ok,
downright jerk is not) are all very important to me in a partner.
The ability to empathize with others is a pretty key characteristic
I look for.
It's ok if you have kid(s), I have a child who is great fun (please
don't let that scare you, it's actually pretty cool), so it would
be nice to meet someone who likes the idea of maybe having a family
if all things go well. I love to travel and lived in Europe for
many years so someone who enjoys seeing new parts of the world
and/or has an international outlook would be great. A person with a
good education and from a good, loving, kind family is a plus.
What I’m doing with my life
filling out this form (oh god!)
I’m really good at
creating, collaborating, not faking it... i also bake pretty well,
desserts, lasagna, you name it
The first things people usually notice about me
my (sunbeam) smile...
Someone recently said I have a "vulnerable, smart, yet self-assured
thing going"...so you can make what you will of that
