A little more about me
I'm a tiny little woman with a strong will and big personality. I am looking for a guy who is not intimidated by a woman with a doctorate and three masters degrees who thinks for herself and is not obsequeous. I was born in Washington, D.C. and have lived in Maryland, New Jersey, California, and England.
