Currently, I work for an environmental engineering and consulting firm in Columbia, SC and I live downtown. My current position allows me to live/work from anywhere. So, if you don't live in Columbia, SC, that is not a problem.
I am a fun-loving, intelligent, witty, single Mommy. I'm playful/have a great sense of humor, but can be very serious and reserved at times (depending on the day and the situation. I enjoy movies, reading books (and being read to), sports (I played soccer for 14 years and coach-and have been known to play flag/tag football), cars (and car shows), art museums (actually museums in general), traveling, going to the park.
I am generally an easy person to get along with, but I can be feisty and quite competitive at times. I am not particularly shy; I am fairly out going and very up front about pretty much every thing (if you ask me my opinion on something I will definitely tell you, so I hope your feelings aren't easily hurt. I think little things (unique thoughtful gestures, consideration, and actions- paying attention to details) mean a lot more than easily accessible/ pre-packaged items.
Some of my favorites are…the color red, seafood, pretty raw steak, strawberries, flowers, and men who behave like gentlemen (not cursing, opening the doors for women, "yes sir/ma'am", etc). I like to draw and paint; I can cook.
And yes-I am 4'11 barefoot, but I tend to wear heels so that puts me at 5'3/5'4 depending on the heels and the occasion ;^)
I know my profile is really, really long...there is a reason for that.
I really do not love repeating myself in anyway (and if I by chance ask you for your time and you are not available, I will not duplicate the request; my general thought is, if/when you are available you will let me know).
Yes, I do date outside of my race. I don't have a specific preference of skin color or race-my attraction to a man depends upon the character and personality of the man. I would hope to be evaluated and considered the same way.
Yes, I do date tall men (this includes men over 6 ft tall-I do realize this means w/out shoes or in low heels, the man will be potentially over a foot taller than me).
Yes, I can be spontaneous, but spontaneously affection towards strangers..sight unseen, voice unheard...just random online guys..hmMm not so much (this also generally covers and is applicable to "staying with me/spending the night, etc" on the day/night that we meet).
Noticing the preferences and "favorites" of people I care about or end up spending a lot of time with.
Drawing/painting, being artistic and creative using various medians.
Being a Mommy-raising/ taking care of my little family.
Driving (probably too fast...ok definitely too fast/ beyond the regular speed limit)
Coaching soccer and tennis
Movies: I like a variety of movies. I am definitely more of a marvel comic book/action adventure fan than of horror flicks (I am a squealing, cover my eyes, arm-grabbing chicken. I do realize horror films are fictional. I just can't help it; I was raised on Disney movies :o)
Favorite Music: I listen to a variety of music...frequently-as in what I listen to on pretty much on a basis..Cage the Elephant, Meiko, Dev, The Cataracs, Far East Moment, The Melker Project, Train, Cake, Weaving the Fate, Death Cab for Cuties, The Killers, One Republic, Black Eyed Peas, Greenday, Gym Class Heroes, Deadmau 5, Panic at the Disco, Weezer, Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Offspring, LMFAO, Everclear, Cobra Starship, Skrillex, Nickleback, Zomboy and various "girl music"..Pink, No Doubt, Katey Perry, Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Portishead, Evanescence, Etta James and Avril Lavigne.
Miles Davis is pretty much the every night at bed time selection ;o)
I love LOVE love pretty much all live music!
Songs that somewhat describe what I hope for in a relationship:
The Way I Am-Ingrid Michaelson
Stuck On & I'm Not Sorry-Meiko
Love You Madly-Cake
Gone, Gone, Gone-Phillip Phillips
I'll Be-Edwin McCain
And what I'd totally be for the right man: Hey Mama-David Guetta
My feather pillows/king size bed
My kiddos :o)
My knight in shining armor (that seems to be taking the scenic route to get to me-hahaha)
LOL - Seriously!?! If you think this is a great message to send me to encourage me to get to know you...
"I like your curves up top, your blessed. Text me a booty pic"
Message from evanaesthetic
Or some sort of request for or reference to "adult play time"
I am absolutely and without a doubt NOT your girl!
IF you are honest, have a sense of humor (even a corny, quirky one), if you are a little nerdy but kind of a rock star, and/or if you have a fairly good grasp on who you are and what you want (and can somewhat communicate both), have your big boy panties on and are ready to meet someone and actively attempt to experience a relationship AND have basic gentleman-like behavior mastered - I look forward to receiving a message from you (and possibly meeting you soon)! ;o)
Also-FYI, "near me" is not a requirement..as long random road trips/traveling is feasible, I am not opposed to distant. Local is ideal, but is not a required.
