Before anything... please.... HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR! If it's witty and sarcastic, I'll consider that a bonus. If not, at least accept the fact that my sense of humor is super sassy and sarcastic. If you take life too seriously, mosey along and good luck because I ain't the girl for you. *shrugs*
About me.... I pride myself on integrity and character. My girlfriends know that I'm loyal and brutally honest. We joke around and say that if we'd call each other at 4 a.m. asking for a shovel, there would be no questions asked. I would do anything for them and likewise. I love, Love, LOVE to cook and quite often my friends show up with grocery bags just so I can cook for them (and it's my pleasure). I hardly cook for myself though. I guess you can say I'm certainly a giver. I like to nurture but I'll never baby. Raised the Cuban old-fashioned way... I love to take care of my "guy" but it's nice to be taken care of as well (or a simple thank you works wonders). I try never to be mean or hurtful, though in an argument or disagreement it’s hard for me to give up the last word.
I'm highly ambitious, confident, have a very strong character and no self-esteem issues. I figure God got it right the first time. I don’t like shallow people and I try to be as least judgmental as possible.
When I do anything, I try to do it 110%. Sometimes I wish the day had extra hours. I love to learn. As young as my toddlers are, they always manage to teach me something. I don’t have much family, technically it’s just my mom, so my friends ARE my family and I place them in high regard.
I love music. All kinds. I think it has the capacity to brighten your day as well as just the opposite, bring you down. I'm a big movie buff. Love dramas, some foreign, comedies, classics, whatever... I'll watch anything.
I have a few tattoos... well, a few more than a few.... but nothing I can't show or hide whenever it calls for it. Besides, I've been in the legal field almost twenty years (and before a judge quite often) and I've yet to hear a complaint. I'm as comfortable in a pair of old jeans and a tank top... as I am in a skirt and heels and can be ready to go in 20 minutes...
I was raised by my mom and grandmother. I miss the country I was born in, though I hardly knew it. I am the daughter of a well-cultured woman who lost a battle with Alzheimer's. I miss growing up, but not enough to do it again. I daydream about Spain. I want to travel. I value deep relationships and I love good conversation. I need integrity in others. I pray for courage.
I like being kept on my toes and guessing. I like to be challenged and I'm always trying to better myself. What I'm looking for? Sometimes I think it doesn't exist. I guess you could say the typical Alpha male. Dominant. Even maybe a touch arrogant (just a little). Very sure of himself. I don't think you should ever second guess yourself. A guy who definitely doesn't take no for an answer. Intense. Handsome. Honorable. Self-possession. Confidence. Not to be handled. Intelligence. Patience. Character. Integrity. Decent. Caring. Compassionate. Loyal. A good friend. Honest. Dependable. Considerate. Appreciative. Strong, and not just physically. Certain of own decisions. Serious thinker. Self-aware. At ease. All that, but still affectionate, passionate and romantic when it counts.
I'm not asking for the world, am I? Just the world that's right for me.
