My self-summary
I seek to live life fully and passionately. We get just one life, so to make the most of it while I have the opportunity is non-negotiable. I, like most, am often asked what I'm looking for. The best thing I can do is to allow someone to be themselves. If we are compatible it's because we are being who we are and not someone we think the other person wants us to be. Besides, if we end up in a lifelong relationship, that a long time to have to fake it.

Actually there is one exception to this rule of not making a perfect man checklist (smile). Emotional availability is key. It's painful to care for someone but can't progress beyond a certain point because they choose not to learn, grow and experience life with you for fear of getting hurt. I realize that when you open up and share yourself with another person, you may be at risk for emotional pain. However, it's the only way to experience the kind of love, joy, passion and relationship bliss that we are all capable of once we allow ourselves to open up and share who we truly are at our very core. Fear itself isn't the problem. It's perfectly normal to experience fear. It's how you choose to respond to it that's important.

-I love deep belly laughs! The kind that makes you have to sit down, catch your breath and recover and then try not to smile anymore because your face hurts.

-I'm a passionate woman. Doesn't mean you should message me and say hey baby let's f---. Just means I like to ooze oooey, gooey, juicy love evergy with the right person:-). In a sweet innocent kind of way (semi-wicked smile). Seriously though, I value substance in a guy. Good looking jerks or handsome dummies don't exactly fly here.

-Tell me that you can cook (and actually be telling the truth) and you've won half the battle ;-)
