My self-summary
My goal is to meet new people and see where things go.
By nature I am a happy person, yet a bit shy at times, and a bit cautious. I use fine arts to harness my creativeness, and bring out my outgoing side. By the way I'm an ISTJ.
I'm a talker, so being able to keep a conversation going is a great ability for the person I'm in the company of. I'm a hiker (flat terrain, or mild incline) and appreciate nature as long as sun-screen is on hand!
My ideal man will be emotionally, socially, and personally balanced. In short: I'm looking for a man that wants me in his life, but is not a needy man! There is a lot more to me but I'd be typing a novel, so ask me later on.
Also please DON'T "Like" me as I cannot see who you are due to being a non-paying member on here.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an on-going student of the culinary arts. Though not in school anymore, there is always more to learn. I am currently working at an Eastern European restaurant in Walnut Creek as a caterer/cook. I cater baked goods out of my house, on the side to get me through the slow times.
I am also an Auntie to 9 great kids ranging from 23yrs old to 3years old. I adore them all, and try to take interest in their lives/interests.
My ultimate goal is to have my own restaurant in the next 10 years. The restaurant would either be American Home-Style "family style", or Northern Italian Cuisine focused on "family-style" food-service.
I’m really good at
Reading people, making others laugh with me! Cooking, crafting, pool table anyone? Darts, water color painting (Monet style), creative writing(short stories/poetry), fixing things "minor repairs", organizational skills, and in general good at having fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my eyes, my honesty (I call things like I see them), and my sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bram Stoker's Dracula, Hamlet, Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales, Gombata, "Think Green Psychology," The Tempest, An Unlikely Friendship, and "The Devil's Queen" as well as all other historical novels by JeAnne Kalogridis.
Movies: Ferris Beuler's Day Off, Ghost Busters, Elizabeth, As Good As it Gets, Casino, My Cousin Vinny, God Father I and II, Blues Brothers, anything Mel Brooks, Sherlock, All of the Star Trek movies (Original, Next Gen. as well as the most recent 2) and the Lord of the Rings series.
Shows: Reign, House, NCIS (east coast),That 70s Show, Big Bang Theory, Counting Cars, Magicians, Game of Thrones and Vikings.
Music: Country Rock, 80s Rock, Jazz, Blues, Salsa, Swing, Golden Oldies (50s&60s), classical, Celtic, and some Heavy Metal.
Food: Dark chocolate, Italian cuisine, Thai cuisine, potatoes in almost any form, Seafood! And too many more to list. If I did not list it ask me later on!
Six things I could never do without
Dark chocolate,
Great friends and family, (this counts as 1 since my friends are like family)
Books (real books, pages made of paper!)
Kitchen counter space (as a cater/cook it's required!)

6 is so limiting..8 seems better:)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future,
How to survive the "big bad world"
My family,
How nice a sane/stable relationship would be,
Culinary Arts and my goals!
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical? There is no such thing for me. However, a few most common possibilities:
Very possibly working.
Cooking for myself or a catering
Staying in to watch a DVD or favorite show
Organizing myself for the coming week's schedule
Face Book chatting with my cousin in New York
relaxing to a low key CD or rocking out to one depending on my energy level.
A date with you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish to say that...well I can't tell you, it's private. But if you dare to ask, I might tell you at some point!
You should message me if
1..You think we are a good match in general interests and would hit it off as friends first and possibly more later on.
2..And if you don't expect me to have sex with you right off the bat! Sleazy men stay away!I will appreciate it if those of you looking for casual sex NOT leave a message for me. I'm not that type of gal.
3...You MUST also have the actual time to put into a relationship. Seeing each other every 2-3 weeks doesn't even come close to what I deem acceptable.
The two of us
