Family is the most important thing to me, spending time with my two brothers and my parents is extremely important. My ideal person would also be very family oriented and have aspirations. I want someone who is not content with settling just because, we only have one life and we should take every opportunity that comes our way. I was the first person in my family to go to college and go beyond a bachelors degree, education is very important to me. I am still furthering my education and the ideal person should also be supportive of that. My parents were not able to achieve their dream of going to college because they came to this country and they have taught me that education is the only thing no one could take away from us, I love learning. I don't see myself stopping until I have a Phd. at the end of my name.
I want someone who understands that my culture is also very important to me, they don't have to be Colombian but be open to my traditions. Everything about my parents country fascinates me, the language, the music, the people, and the history. In all honestly being Colombian is the best.
I have made mistakes when it comes to relationships like rushing into things but I haven't lost faith that somewhere out there is that person who compliments me. I envision myself being with someone with whom I could be myself around, yes there is a time and place to sound intellectual but finding someone who could see what I have to offer has been hard. Many men especially Latinos are very intimidated by an educated, and independent Latina. Our culture has taught us that the male has to be the primary money maker and that should not be the case. I have worked very hard to achieve what I have, with that said I would like to be with someone that could see us as a power couple. I am a very busy person, I do not like wasting my day, I hold multiple jobs which means there are days I leave my house at 6:45 in the morning and do not get back until 8:30 at night and on the weekends I go to grad school, that is why I say I would like someone who is supportive. Someone who understands that we might not see each other everyday but if there is a will there is a way. To sum it all up I am just done with immature guys and would like someone who could hold me down as much as I would hold them down as well. I am not about the casual hooking up it's just not who I was raised to be, eventually I do see myself settling down doing the whole marriage and kids but I'm not rushing into anything. I'd rather get to know a person as an individual, enjoy their company and see how things happen naturally. I gave this site a try once which didn't workout to well but in life you must brush yourself off and try again. So here I am.
