Passion, fun, intimacy, family (both parents and children), caring, kindness, honesty and mutual respect are essential to me. My ideal partner would feel the same. I think the best relationships are ones in which the couple finds most activities more enjoyable because of the partner, while respecting space for individual activities and development. I want a partner who is confident and content being alone, but enjoys my company so much that he thinks about me several times every day. I also like men who open doors and generally know how to treat a woman.
My favorite communication method, aside from in-person, is texting/FB PM, with email a close second. I will call you if I need to, but calling doesn't fit my life very well. Get your thumbs toned, please!
When not at work, and depending on the event, I am as comfortable dressed casually, formally, or quite sexy. I like toenail polish, heels, etc., but love jeans/tanks and throw a football with my son. As evidence, once at a wedding I wore a gown, heels, and thigh highs, AND played catch in the lobby with my son!
If I look at your profile multiple times without contacting you, it's because I'm stopping back to review more of your answers. Feel free to say hello, but I prefer not to receive messages such as "Why do you keep looking at my profile without writing."
