I am honest, quirky, funny, and expressive.
I'm non monogamous.
I also have a firm no drama policy for my life. As such I have no desire for the drama that comes with secret affairs, so save yourself a wasted effort and don't ask.
I have high standards on what I consider acceptable behavior. While I'm open and prefer living outside the box, I have a full life I enjoy and don't have time for people who fail to show up and be present.
I don't drink much, but a bottle of champagne chilling in my fridge is paramount to a good life. You never know when you need to celebrate the little victories or cheer up a friend in need.
I often have an irreverent sense of humor, but I don't like crass.
In grew up in the south and as such, I am a fan of practicing the art of flirting. Flirting is meant to make the other person feel good. It is not about sexual aggressiveness. Sending me a picture of your bits is not a flirtation and will get you nothing but scolded. Engage me in witty banter and you may just get yourself a date.
Sexuality should be celebrated not shamed, but if it's all you have to talk about then you won't hold my attention.
I value honesty and consideration.
I require integrity, transparency, and thoughtfulness. Kindness and compassion are must haves too.
I'm not a damsel in distress and I don't need to be rescued, but I do like a man who knows how to treat a woman with respect and a little bit of old school chivalry. Pull out my chair, open a door, offer me your arm when walking down a street, these are things I will greet with a smile and appreciate.
My biggest pet peeve is people who choose to ignore someone instead of telling them they are no longer interested. It's a basic common courtesy. If someone you have been seeing contacts you to get together, have the decency to respond.
I'm pretty focused on my writing these days, but I do love a nice flirtation and I'm mainly interested in finding activity partners, but if the chemistry is right I'm open to seeing where it goes.
Some of the activities I'm looking for a partner are: dancing ( particularly swing & salsa), hiking, acro-yoga and tennis (I just recently learned how to play and really like it.) I also love trying new things, so if you do something fun and exciting I've never tried before I'd love to hear about it. Maybe you can show me something new that becomes my new adventure.
I have a broad intellect and enjoy being able to discuss a variety of topics. You get brownie points if you can make me laugh.
