I find intelligence to be very sexy. I just changed careers. I'm now second in command to the CEO w/my new company and I have taken over operations for Canada and the US. I'll be flying on one of the corp planes or an airline most weeks all over the US and Canada. I'm looking forward to the new challenges & can't wait to visit new places! For the previous 12 years, I was employed by AVON in NY for 7. 5 years, worked out of the Atlanta Branch. NO I DID NOT SELL AVON! I was in upper management w/the company. I was then recruited to a chemical company for 5 years before accepting this new position w/ my new company. I have a good education (Degree in Interior Design w/Minor in Architecture)& I am very driven. I have a nice home that I built, an Acura & I just bought a BMW Z3 Roadster AND a BMW Z4 Roadster. I did all of this by myself w/no help from anyone. I have accomplished all this through much adversity so I am very proud of myself & I do not accept laziness and low work ethic. I have good morals & values & love my friends. I love to read & work out. I love to go out & watch live music, especially jazz or go to the theater or see a movie. I also love to dance! I can be pretty low key & at times, enjoy staying home & working on my house or some project. I also LOVE to spend time in bookstores. I LOVE to cook! I am a vegetarian but it does not limit me to any restaurants. I enjoy anything that is holistic & I like to constantly learn new things. I'm an animal lover as well! I am very sweet and love to have a good time. I always put the feelings of the ones I care about above my own and practice the rule of being the kind of friend I that I would want to have in my life. I will not compromise on the things for which I am searching for in a man. I'm looking for a mature guy (28-48 only) w/morals that can accept me as the independent person that I am! Please don't be jealous & controlling as I'm neither of those. I'm a pretty happy person most all of the time & usually you will find me laughing. If you are listed as a few extra pounds I will not be interested as I am very active & health conscious therefore I want a fit/athletic guy. Also, if you are married DO NOT contact me. I'm not interested in any arrangements! I am tired of games as well so please don't even try it! YOU MUST have a college education AND a career! You must be someone who takes care of themselves. I want well groomed, nice hair (no shaved heads) and teeth,I prefer no piercings or tattoos and definitely NO facial hair (sorry guys but it totally grosses me out!) nice dress with stylish clothes. I do like a guy in glasses! You do not have to have a sports car but a nice car (honda, acura, toyota, etc) is the sign of someone that has it together and aspires to have nice things. I prefer to date younger than myself but will date my age and older if you look, act and feel younger! I am looking for a long term relationship but do not want to get extremely serious too fast. I am really tired of games and just will not waste my time on guys who choose to play them any longer. So, if you fit the bill, send me an email and let's get to know one another. **Also, dont send me a message slamming me for knowing what I want. I find that the few guys who have done that are suffering from very low self esteem and lack of a life.
