I am a native Floridian and love being blessed to live here. I was born in Bradenton Beach, and then swam all the way to Miami when I was two ("oh, so that's how I got the fins") ;)
Seeking a gentleman who has a kind heart, is self-assured, is not afraid to stand up for his values, and has great respect for the women in his life. :) Someone fun and optimistic to explore Florida, Life, and the World with.
Honesty is a prerequisite with me. You should know what 'integrity' means and hold it close to your heart. I'm a strong, independent woman with a great heart, respect for others, and a deep love for the Man upstairs~~* I am considered by all those who know me as a loyal, goofy, and supportive friend. I'm like a booster shot ;) I love to encourage and build others up. Nothing better in the world than to see the person you love smile and feel great about themselves!! :) I try to see the positive in everyone... it just feels so good to do so ..
I also prefer a man who is romantically inclined, as I'm a bit of a romantic when with the right person. I love surprises! Again, anything that brings a cute smile to someone I love, and my heart jumps for joy! I love flowers! I love to slow dance. I love when my partner notices the small things. I love thunderstorms. I love a man who is Bold in his values ~ I never expect anything that I myself would not reciprocate.. So the more romantic,the better! :)
I graduated from the University of Miami, with my B.A.(Psychology/Religious Studies)..and am currently finishing my Masters' degree in Psychology. I completed 2 years of my Doctorate in L.A. and am considering fulfilling the last two in the future. I worked as a therapist in Miami, providing group and individual therapy for those suffering from schizophrenia and/or bipolar mental illness. I did my internship facilitating group therapy with Cancer survivors and their families. I enjoy my profession greatly, and it is a wonderful feeling watching those you care about grow mentally, intellectually, and spiritually. I'm a very lucky woman and thank God for the passion and patience He has placed in me*
Some of my interests include:
An extreme passion for exotic cars, antique restored cars, custom cars/trucks and enjoy attending car shows/clubs, meeting other enthusiasts. I love racing. If you know what the Saleen S7 is.... major bonus points! ;)
Photography: I love to use my lens as a portal into things that often go unnoticed. Capturing the moments in life and making them stand still to appreciate, and speak meaning that words cannot express. I just returned from my second visit to Cuba, working on publishing my collection to share with others.
I love traveling!! Specifically the islands, any island will do. I've visited all the Islands of Bahamas(Abaco,Chub, Cat Cay,Walkers(big fishies),Freeport,Nassau,Paradise Island(lose lots of $$-casino), Jamaica(Ocho Rios-Dunn's River, Negril-Yellowman in concert on the beach, Kingston,Montego Bay, and St Ann's), British Virgin Islands(Virgin Gorda-the Baths are amazing, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke-Jimmy Buffet wrote 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' on sailboat here!), St. Kitts, US Virgin Islands(St. John, St. Thomas, and St. Croix), Puerto Rico, Belize, Cozumel, Antigua, Turks and Caicos (MY FAVE so far), Cuba, Hawaiian Islands, Martinique, Cayman Islands, Solomon Islands, Florida Keys(of course), and some that just don't have names yet... I have also had the blessing to visit Alaska, London, Ireland, Scotland, Amsterdam, Greek Isles, and Paris. My dream is to visit Seychelles, Bora Bora, New Zealand, Dubai, India, Thailand, Japan, and anywhere adventure calls me.
I've lived a lot of life, learned a lot of lessons, experienced a lot of Miami's Nightlife. Tired of superficiality, seeking someone of substance, not afraid to speak their emotions, who sincerely seeking to find his life partner. If that sounds like you, let’s see if we connect!
