I am a strong independent woman with many goals. I consider myself to be a loyal and decent human being, and I love my family and friends. I'm not the type of person who is easily swayded or convinced to do things that I don't approve of. I love to live on the edge and experience new things, as long as its something that interests me. I am looking for someone who shares the same interests and views as me, and life has taught me that true soul mates need to come from similar backgrounds. I do want kids one day, so I am looking for someone to share my life with. I am not an 'easy' woman and don't like wasting time, so don't contact me if you are looking for a 'quick' thing. It has taken me a long time to finally join one of these dating sites, so I hope not to be disappointed. Oh, and education and conversation are Extremely important to me. I can't stand needy, jealous or dumb men.
