I am a midwest transplant new to LA over the last 9 years . I lived in Chicago for about 9 years prior to coming here. I have dated professional women in the past and they are my preferred choice. I like a woman who is neat and timely and has her own goals and ambitions she wants to pursue. I prefer a independent woman who has a thoughtful and nuturing side yet has some street savvy so as not to be a pushover. I would love to meet a woman who has traveled who respects all races and types of people but makes it a priority to spend time with her family and stresses the importance of having a strong friendship and relationship.
