I am a person who loves deeply and passionately and lives to make each moment extraordinary.
I have a job that I thoroughly enjoy - most of the time. It involves some travel, which can be both exciting and exhausting but gives me an opportunity to visit many places across the country. I just have to figure out how to arrange a business trip to Greece! Like most people in the D.C. Metro area, I am trying to find a greater balance between work and life. I'm not where I want to be but getting much better.
Most mornings you'll find me at the gym trying to get into better shape. Being healthy of mind, body and spirit is a priority for me. That includes daily exercise, among other things. But I am far from what many may consider physical perfection. I am a full-figured woman who loves her body. If this is something that appeals to you keep reading :-)
When I'm not at the office, gym or on the road, I enjoy entertaining, cooking, watching great films, taking in local attractions and spending time with friends. I've recently become addicted to deep-tissue massages (due to the aforementioned workouts) and am a big fan of wine, particularly champagne. Good tequila is another favorite but it makes me do bad things :-)
With regard to my perfect match, I can't say I believe such a person exists. At one time or another most of us have created a mental list of what we thought we wanted in a partner. These lists often are not based in reality and can have us spending precious time searching for the illusive. Besides, there are things that cannot be accounted for on lists. Those intangible qualities some of us refer to as chemistry can be as important to a relationship as anything you can jot down on paper.
But for those of you who insist on lists I will say that I am generally attracted to men who are very passionate, confident (not cocky) with a little edge, unpretentious, expressive, generous, intelligent and a wicked sense of humor. Any man I spend time with MUST be honest and is comfortable around diverse groups of people - that's non-negotiable. . There. You have your list :-)
If this process results in a long-term relationship, that would be great. If not, I hope at least to gain a new friend and enjoy the ride along the way.
Are you ready for me?
