I am ready for the rest of my adult life to begin and have a feeling it is waiting for me somewhere far away from where I am. If Jdate points me in that direction, I will be grateful:)
I am a hard working, hard playing, free spirit, with strength of character who has lived a colourful life both personally and professionally.
Although working hard keeps me grounded, I have been fairly casual in my social life because I felt as though I wasn't ready to give up freedoms (personally or professionally) when everything around me seemed exciting enough that I felt mostly satisfied.
I have come to the natural realization that I am truly ready to share myself and my life with somebody who understands me, and the little things that make people exceptional.
That being said, I will settle for nothing less than what I believe to be true love and like most other good things that have come to me in my life, I am willing to work hard for it. I am willing to take chances, I am willing to travel and I am willing to fail.
I am an idealist and a romantic. I want a long term relationship to be the best and most valuable thing that I've ever played a role in creating. I want it to be a work of art, not expectations! I want a level of connection that can only be felt, not explained. I want to inspire someone and feel inspired!
Both professionally and socially, I am straightforward and honest, I have little to hide. I value the opinions of others but I'm inclined to rely on my own judgement and intuitions. I take responsibility for my mistakes and I think I am humble about my successes. I did not grow up in a bubble and I feel like I have valuable perspective, as a result. My best quality is probably knowing how to do "the right thing" in many of life's challenging or ambiguous situations.
I thrive in most social situations, whether it's one on one or in a group. I am not easily embarrased but aware of what makes others uncomfortable socially, or in a work environment. I am often the life of the party but I can also be the "responsible" person in the room, if the situation requires it. I am always concerned about other's feelings and do what I can to make people comfortable before acting on my own impulses. I am fiercely loyal to those closest to me and they know this without question. I think these qualities are what have made me a leader in most aspects of my life.
I am intrigued by creative minds and ambitious thinkers. Although, I am not overtly artistic myself, I do collect my creative thoughts in writing and sometimes generate a little poetry:)
I do feel like I have a lot to offer and I hope to meet someone else who feels the same way about themselves....This doesn't mean I come without flaws, but anybody who says otherwise is lying!!
