I am a confident, secure, attractive, intelligent, mature, fun-loving, sensual, compassionate, loving and giving individual. I don't accept drama, nor do I bring drama to a relationship. What baggage I carry, has been accepted and stored away, not to be dumped on the next man in my life. I believe in open and honest communication, sharing joys and tears with someone special and having the willingness to try ALMOST anything.My ideal man would have many of these qualities and beliefs, as well as bringing laughter, love, companionship and most of all friendship. He is secure, emotionally and financially. Giving, caring, not afraid to show his feelings (in public as well as in private. He has a sense of humor, but knows when to be serious and supportive.He is someone I can lean on, who will put his arms around me and hold me when I need it and then make me laugh to chase away the shadows. He loves life, his family and God, but is not so wrapped up in any one of them, that he neglects the others. He loves to travel, whether it is weekend getaways or long cruises to exotic places. He loves music, sports, and cuddling in front of the TV. If he can cook, that is all good, but he enjoys eating a home cooked meal and appreciates good wine. His friends are important and he gives them time in his life, but not to the exclusion of me. He has his interests and goals and allows me to have mine. If you are looking for a model thin, trophy woman then that is not me. I have curves that I am happy with and men have always found me attractive. I am not yet an active member but will be upgrading soon.
