I had thought that I was fairly intelligent, but then it occured to me that I must be waiting for that someone special to just show up at my door. The light did come on however, and I decided to try a more active aproach to finding what I would like to think is my "soul mate", so here I am. I am actually an intelligent, kind, caring, honest person. I'm artistic and creative, which I pursue both in my work and recreationally. I'm a faux/decorative artist working for myself, and I do various other forms of art. I have one teenage child that I love dearly for whom I have full custody (he is a cool kid, and good most of the time). I also have pets which I consider part of the family. I like to think that I make a good friend and partner. I have many varied interests, some of my favorites include horse back riding, biking, nature walks, gardening, shopping (I am a Jewsih woman after all), decorating, traveling, reading, cooking and so much more. I don't know that I have ever been bored. I don't sweat the little ripples in life, and think life is a learning experience meant to be shared with loved ones. I'm a pretty well rounded person with a fairly full life, but would like to find the right person to share all life has to offer. Oh, and I have a good sense of humor too, although I can be a little sarcastic sometimes, but not on the mean side.
