I love to laugh and have a good time. I'm often making others laugh, but find laughing at myself to be the most fun. I'm a novice painter, a great writer, an aspiring reader, an animal lover, a loyal sister, an inconsistent exerciser, a resilient woman, a great friend. I see sleeping late whenever I can as a privilege...and a necessity. I love spa days, but the best day I've had in a while was spent making a little boy with special needs smile. I can cook a few things really well, but I find myself nuking a lot of dinners. I love the excitement of airports...limitless possibilities. I never watch movies when I'm home alone, but love watchin' 'em under the covers, spooning. The beach is my nirvana. Red wine, dark chocolate. Don't believe in doing drugs or practicing organized religion. I'm excitable and passionate. I love to be the center of attention, but don't like being in crowds. I'm an avid carnivore with equal love for a medium rare filet at NY Prime, and a bacon cheeseburger at Outback. Like small, chic and sometimes not so chic, cozy spots to enjoy drinks, dinner, friends, fun. Anywhere I can see and hear the ocean is all the better. Enjoy going out for the night...great dinner, live music, but equally enjoy downtime at home...cooking dinner together, talking over a bottle of wine, and cuddling up for a movie. Looking for a man with a great sense of humor, who can be as gregarious and silly as he is intelligent and mature. Down to earth and kind heart imperative. Prefer a highly developed brain and vocabulary over highly developed abdominals. Strong character over strong muscles, values over valuables. Great relationships are based on friendship, trust, respect and love. They go the distance when those friends and lovers always have each other's backs. Ready for someone who can go the distance.
