I'm pragmatic but spontaneous. Nurturing but competitive. Peaceful but energetic. I love staying up late , but I almost always sleep in on weekends. I definitely have an adventurous streak -- whether it's trying out an exotic recipe in the kitchen, hiking with my kids (and our very unwilling dog) or traveling the world (ok, I have only been to a few truly exotic places.. But I am looking forward to adding new stamps to my passport!). My dream trip is taking the Orient Express from Paris to Venice to Budapest, then relaxing on a Greek island with nothing but sunscreen, Jane Austen books and my camera.
I'd like a guy that knows what he wants and appreciates all that he has. Someone who is comfortable in their own skin, loves to laugh and never takes himself too seriously. Someone who's going to push me to my limits and then pull back with a warm hug at the last minute. Truth is, I'm just a nice girl who's looking for some fun and companionship (not necessarily in that order). I love funny guys who can hold me spellbound with a story or make me laugh until I cry. I also love creativity and passion. Maybe it's your love of '80s movies, your baseball card collection or the fact that you moved across country with only a duffel bag -- it doesn't matter. The right man not only fascinates me but also brings out the best in me. We push each other to be the greatest people we can be. We bolster each other's egos and we leave short, thoughtful love messages for each other when we're away on business trips. If you're comfortable in your own skin, have a strong sense of self and aren't afraid to expose your flaws, I'm sure we'll get along just fine. But I will say that if you've got confidence, a good, kind heart and a wicked sense of humor- I'm already melting.
