The one thing I am passionate about...
I feel deeply so the exploration of life through senses (touch, sound, taste, sight and smell) is fantastic! Hearing great music or witnessing a beautiful connection between people can give me goosebumps. Babies and puppies usually make me melt. I have a great career - love my work, where I do it and with whom I do it. Being challenged by complex problems and working through them with a team with diverse thoughts and ideas energizes me.
I typically spend my leisure time
Relax with family & friends, walk my dog, hike, bike ride, listen to music (yes, sometimes loud with dancing involved), wine tasting, concerts, movies, sporting events, relax by the pool, head up north or to Chicago to play.
The most influential person in my life has been
If you?re my ideal man, you?re smart, self-confident, fun, have your act together, have a strong moral compass and you?re handsome. You want a real, meaningful relationship. High emotional intelligence, good communication skills and courageously vulnerable. You want an sassy woman also needs someone to adore and protect her romantic, soft and vulnerable side. A quick wit. Masculine, kind, compassionate, thoughtful, sexual and affectionate. You value honesty, chemistry, authenticity, love, intimacy, intelligence, respect, and balance. Someone who shares your values. You have high standards in your choice of a woman.
The first thing people notice about me
I've not asked others but think perhaps my body language and demeanor - approachable, open and warm.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family, friends and connectedness
- Good health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My soulfulness and tender side. This takes more time to get to know than a quick profile read or glance through photos. Particularly as a female with a self-confident, playful side - the one that allows me to hold my own in banter and laugh freely - I think this can make it harder for others to see my deep, kind and gentle soul. The good news... once one knows me, there is no way they can overlook this side of me. It's a big part of who I am.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Articulate, Generous, Intelligent
A little more about me
A self-confident, extrovert with a positive outlook. I'm moralistic, kind, bright, thoughtful and self-reflective. I can be a serious softy, have healthy boundaries and am transparent. My love languages are quality time and physical touch. I feel loved when you give me your undivided attention - looking me in the eye while we talk. Physical touch is more than sex (though that's important) - hold my hand, kiss me, give me a brief gentle touch, snuggle with me or share a massage. I love to give all of this to a partner as well as understand his love languages... so I can make him feel loved in the way he best feels love.
