I believe life is what you make it. I have not been one to live each day to its fullest but that is something I'm striving for. I consider myself authentic, goal oriented and career minded. I'm very independent and don't mind spending time with myself yet I'm very capable of compromise. I'm grateful for my family and friends. I'm looking for someone who makes me laugh and brings out the best in me and who is my true partner. I relate best to men who have a similar mindset regarding morals, values and integrity. I believe everything, including friendship should be built from a strong foundation. I've experienced tragedy, heartache and loss but have not been defeated by these things. Like Sinatra sings and I believe, "The best is yet to come."
