I’m not picky. I am selective when it comes to a partner. Picky sounds snobbish and difficult. Selective sounds patient and also, smart. Which I am.
I have become pretty comfortable in my high-energy, quirky and lovable skin. Effusive and sometimes incredibly rambling, I know my strengths and weaknesses.
At this stage of the game, I know what I want from a partner. I know what I don’t want.
Mostly, I want someone who doesn’t get in my way of growing. I want someone who wants to have fun and go balls-to-the wall about life. As my parents have grown older and I have become a single mom, I realized that life is too short and it changes too fast. Have fun now. Take chances now. Be in the moment.
So, no, I am not open to everyone, nor should I be.
The characteristics I find the most appealing in a man are:
Kindness & Humility
I don’t need a tough guy. I like someone who is diplomatic and thoughtful, not a brute.
Tell me your honest thoughts without being hurtful. You can be precise without being cutting.
Action-driven & Not Lazy
Have interests. Be passionate about something.
Make consistent efforts with me and take charge. If you want to be involved with me, prove you deserve that chance.
