So a friend, who just happens to be a matchmaker (no joke), was reading my profile recently. Knowing how awesome I am ) she couldn’t believe how lame and generic my profile sounded and made me promise then and there that I would adjust it immediately. TE, this is for you…
I’ve spent most of my life working, which hasn’t left much time for what I believe are the truly important things in life: friends and family. Unfortunately, I think I realized this later than I would have liked to, after I’d lost some of the most important people in my life. I’m trying to remedy this now.
I have been described by one of my best guy friends as “having a tough outer shell that belies your soft heart of gold.” Other words/traits that I’ve been told speak to my character are: deeply loyal, generous, funny, sarcastic, dependable, trustworthy, impatient (hey, we’re not all perfect ) and not afraid to stand up for who and what I believe in.
I am a female business owner with currently 30 or so employees and it has taken much from me to build it to where it is today. It’s not untrue to say I sacrificed the majority of my 30’s doing so. While I still work a lot and am generally plugged in, I also enjoy tremendous flexibility and can do what I want, when I want. My astrologer (yea, it’s seriously legit) told me I could be working 60% less than I am and still be just as successful I’d love nothing more than to find the person for whom I’d like to work 60% less.
I’m looking for a partner who appreciates and supports all that I’ve created and is excited to be a part of what honestly is a pretty damn fun, exciting and privileged life. I’m not naïve to think that who I am will be attractive to many – probably a vast majority – of guys. I am looking for a man who can keep up with me…I’m not a ball buster, bitter or angry…but I need someone who isn’t afraid to put me in my place when I’m being a (it happens ). I think especially since I am responsible for taking the lead in so many areas of my life, it is important to me to find someone who is a “man” in the truest sense of the word: someone who can take charge, make a plan and collaborate with me on our lives rather than expecting me to oversee it all. If you call me at work and tell me you’re downstairs in a car with packed bags for a surprise getaway, you’re damn well sure I’m going to cancel whatever business meetings I’ve got scheduled!
