I suspect I am not alone when I say that I find writing a description of myself a little challenging. I try not to take myself that seriously. I actually write fiction, (my second book was just released,) but the art of a good autobiography eludes me. For the sake of the venue however, I will try to make this as captivating as I can.
I started a business from a hobby about twelve years ago, and just recently sold it. I am now enjoying some leisure time while I figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I don't have much emotional baggage, and am in a good place in my life.
I love to cook and entertain, and throw some great dinner parties. (I am told eating my Caesar salad is a religious experience.) I was born and raised in California, and still try to get back to the coast as often as I can. I love the ocean. I enjoy long walks, trying new restaurants, movies and travelling. My friends and family would describe me as generous, loyal and funny. (I know because I asked them before I wrote this.)
When asked what I am looking for in a partner, the item at the top of the list is a great sense of humor. The ability to make me laugh is irresistible. A kind heart and nice to animals is essential. (This means you don’t shoot at them.) My family has been involved in animal rescue for many years, and most of my philanthropic causes are of the four-legged variety. Both of my kitties were strays and one is a feral that I have had for eighteen years. (Secret: My cat is a very good judge of character. If he likes you, I probably will too.) Proving chivalry is not dead, also very appealing. I love getting flowers and am a sucker for a man that pulls out my chair and helps me on with my wrap. And while we all have past relationships that haven't worked out, I have greater respect for someone who speaks with kindness about his previous paramours.
And finally a word about adventure: I have seen quite a few profiles where this seems to be a rather important trait in a woman. The truth is I’m not that adventurous. I won’t repel down the side of a building with nothing to support me but a thin piece of elastic that looks suspiciously like a hair scrunchie wrapped around my ankle. I also won’t jump from a perfectly good airplane. (That would muss my hair.) I will however go camping, provided the campground has a minimum of a four star rating and Egyptian cotton sheets.
If you have come this far, I give you my sincere thanks for reading my profile and hope you will take the next step and say hello. I wish you the best of luck on your search for someone special. I have been blessed of a successful business, dear friends and a wonderful family. All that is missing is you....
