Ultimately, I want a man in my life that we have each other's back. We can always count on each other, whom I can trust beyond a shadow of a doubt, who will protect me with every fiber of his being and I in turn will protect his honor by never acting in a promiscuous way and being loyal to only him. We will never purposely hurt one another. We will put each others needs above our own. We will forgive.
I am an artist, jewelry designer and own a store/small biz where I sell my designs retail, teach jewelry classes and use it as a working studio. I've been an artist my entire life, designing jewelry for 30 years and teaching for 12 years. I do travel to teach workshops and attend retail Fine Art Shows.
Love to laugh and have fun! Love sarcastic humor. I am an easy going positive person.
I will always find the good, even in the worst of situations. I have found that even in the most tragic of situations good will come from it even if you don't recognize it immediately.
It does not take a lot to impress me. Little things to show me you care mean more to me than anything flashy.
I don't care about what kind of car you drive, how much money you make, what kind of material things you have. I also don't want to be your mother, so please be able to support yourself.
It actually makes me a little uncomfortable for a man to spend money on me frivolously. I am a frugal person, but I do like nice things. Quality over quantity.
With me, the thought really is what counts...fold a piece of paper in half and make me a card no matter how ugly lol, remember an anniversary, birthday etc.
I do have a drink once in a while, but not that often.
I am a perfectionist, but do not expect perfection from you. I like cooking, fishing, camping, biking, gym, volleyball, basketball, billiards.
I like going to Art Fairs and going to the park with a quilt on a cool day and sleeping in the sun.
I am a handy type of person. I can pretty much look at something and figure out how it is made and there is a good chance I can fix it as well. I can do a lot of things around the house. Like...tape and mud, solder plumbing, repair and install faucets, toilets, tile, stonework, trimwork, build fences, installed storm doors, built a shed, sew curtains, garden as well as many other things...etc.
I only mention this because some men don't like when a woman is handy and I truly enjoy doing these things and don't plan on stopping, would love to find someone who would like to do these things together (not necessary, but please don't be intimidated if you are not handy)...perhaps one day rehab.
I love the beach! I would help anyone in need, even a stranger, if I have the ability.

What turns me on is a strong (not talking muscles), dominant, thoughtful, passionate, loving, caring, respectful, honorable, driven, man.
Someone with good self esteem, but does not take themselves too seriously. Someone that is mature, but likes to have fun.
A man that is a gentleman...most of the time ;)
