Salutations from a happy, fullfilled woman of God! Sentient, Curvy, Quirky, Lisa-Nicole Carson-Type MA Psychologist 4 Bright, Responsible, Christian, Accomplished, Renaissance MAN who always aspires to be the BEST he can be in the Lord; spiritually, personally and professionally. GENTLEMEN: You really must pay for a membership so that you may pursue a lady, it really doesnt look good to "collect call" is it THAT much to ask that you pay for a membership???NOTE-HERE'S A QUICK OBSERVATION I HAVE MADE: I think that if a man is serious about his interest in a woman or serious about pursuing a serious relationship and marriage with a woman he will pay for a membership so that he can communicate with her. Tryimg to get her to email him so he can talk to her for free is not attractive fellas--it's not a good look!
ABOUT ME: Basics : Recently >>returned to school and completed MA in Clinical Psychology. Currently in a Clinical Psychology Ph. D. Program and working as a masters level psychologist in HIV prevention, outreach and education. I am a learner and seeker of wisdom, kindness and sincerity. . . . I really like folks who seek the same. I love intelligent, thinking people, who remain humble in spite of their aquired knowledge. I'm a relatively smart girl [I am hardly a brainiac--not even brilliant-but I am bright:-)]and I like smart guys:-)! I know quite a bit about a many things and some about almost everything else but there are 2 or 3 catagories that I am close to CLUELESS in: Geography [directions where North South East & West are] The political process--shame:-( [the basics only--HOWEVER I ALWAYS vote!] and of course MATH!!! It's actually quite embarrassing, I really have to do something about this:-). I have learned to compensate well for my knowledge-challenges though!:-)Ok. . . focus lady:-):With all things in the will of God. . . I'd SOOOOO LOVE to have a happy healthy marriage and happy healthy children! All living with DIVINE PURPOSE, JOY and PRAISE!I LOVE KIDS!I like VERY DEPENDABLE, SOLID, RELIABLE, INTELLIGENT MEN--SMART ENOUGH TO PRAY FOR WISDOM IN ALL THINGS! I am connected up with my purpose in God and it feels wonderful!!!!! I like folks who are doing the same and/or looking to do the same. I like positive, glass half full types. Always looking to become better in small or large ways. I truly love creating, maintaining and enjoying the comforts of home: Cooking/Baking, Entertaining, Interior Design, CURIOUS & ANALYTICAL, LOVE to read, learn and explore ideas. Background in community services, program development, PR and counseling. Traditional, but non-conformist. A REAL girly-girl, love all the lotions, potions, paints and outfits that go with it. I have my granola-style traits but NOT the wardrobe to go with it !:-) A study in contrast that manifests in an interesting combination of quirky personality traits. VERY IMPORTANT: I am a VERY involved, committed Christian, not a fanatic or overly fundamental, however, I am a contemporary, fun-filled, relatively mature Christian and joyously SERIOUS about my faith. Also love to express affection to those I love by cooking and entertaining. Said to resemble a cross between a Donna Summer type and Lisa Nicole Carson type-that said, [I'll get specific here because visuals are important to guys]it should be clear to you that I am NOT a little girl at all, however, most of my padding is attractively located in most of the right places [and some needs to go:-)] for those who appreciate the aforementioned body types. :-) PLAY CLOSE ATTENTION HERE>>>>>>>>>>>>>: Tall, super curvy, LARGE ( I said Large) frame amazonny type - kinda old school cushy 1950's 1960's figure >>>>You know how Wonder Woman and Raquel Welsh are 20-30 pounds form being a BIG girl? >>>That's me!. I have worked hard to lose weight after gaining alot at one point. . . and let me tell you I am NOT and NEVER WAS a LITTLE girl!!!:-) So if that kinda thing disturbs you. . . you have been FOREWARNED!!! OK enough of the esoteric. Love idea exchange as well as debating the issues of the day-NOT TO ARGUE OR FIGHT! Christian, opinionated, urbane, aware, sharp chick with a penchant for debate/idea exchange available for a [traditional with a twist] friend and partner --Christian - I am a committed Christian, you need to be a committed Christian also) to share in the adventure of living life with purpose [designed by God], living a life full of mundane and extraordinary moments made special not because we're dining in Kenya or shopping in Paris (however, I fully plan on continuing to TRY to live like this from time to time:-) ) but more importantly because they're our moments. It would be great to meet a bibliophile to share Sundays with the NYT, NPR, OJ and a cuppa Joe. Dinner parties, board games & overseas holidays. I am definitely a study in contrast that manifests in an interesting balance of character traits. I'm a simple girl in a complicated sorta way--a prism-esque personality. I'm a social butterfly who also loves to snuggle up in my house and hibernate. A homebody at heart, I love doing all things that contribute to making a house a home. I love incorporating beauty, art, literature, idea/thought exchange into my life on a consistent basis-I like folks who enjoy the same. But hey, I often find people with differing interests. . . well. . . very interesting:-)I am often very happy to simply VEG and laze around the house. Something I LOVE: It's early afternoon Saturday, about 12:30, 1:00, just had a long lazy breakfast, with the paper sprawled all over and music or Bravo's Breakfast with the Arts [or some network Morning Show] on in the background. It starts to rain [my heart leaps] it starts to pour and I grab several books in various states of completion, a stack of magazines, find an old black and white classic on TV, languish in literary loveliness, reading back and forth-whatever my heart desires until I fall into a delicious nap. . it feels like tiome has stopped or there is no time [kinda like a snow day when you're a kid:-)]. . . . man that kinda day rocks!Basically, I JUST WANT TO LIVE JOYOUSLY AND PURPOSEFULLY WHILE CONTINUING TO ALWAYS LEARN, LEARN, LEARN [it keeps you young and always content!]!
