My closest friends would describe as someone who knows what she wants, goes after it, and won;t settle for anything less. I am searching for true romance in the context of an honest and mutually respectful relationship. I value integrity and not comprising what you believe in. I want a monogamous partner who doesn't lie, cheat, or twist the truth (don't we all?). The person must be outgoing, adventurous but grounded when need be. He must be generous and kind, and playful. I need someone who will let me still be me, as we grow together. I don't party constantly and I don't smoke or do drugs of any kind, and neither should he. His priority should be making me smile, and mine his. A real man who isn't afraid to get dirty, but cleans up nicely. A guy who knows how to have fun, but can be serious too..his priorities are in order. He need not be rich, but must be driven and ambitious. Laziness is a total turnoff. I am passionate about my career and I am very family oriented. I want to be someone's priority, not someone's option, and I won't settle for less than that. In return, I am giving and loving, and I can be trusted.
