My closest friends would describe me as being an ambitious goal oriented professional who is looking for the perfect balance in a partner. I love life and want to experience more of it with the right person. In my eyes, the ideal man for me is one who puts his family first, is educated, and ambitious. A strong counter part who is cool under pressure and knows when to step up and when to all me to shine. I want to be proud of the person on my arm and be confident that he is the same man in my absence as he is in my pressence. I am a mother of one and its been a great experience thus far. I wont know if I want more kids until I meet the right person. If that doesnt happen Im ok with one. If it does I might be able to sacrifice my waist for one more... lol. Im looking for a serious commmitted relationship thats marriage bound. Were all adults and when you know you know. And if your not sure than step aside. Life is to short to be unofficially committed to someone uncertain. I love to travel and want to explore the world. I want to build a life for my family that I was not afforded as a youth. Those I love and who love me will never have to struggle for anything. I am not an overly religious person but I am spiritual. I have been though alot of hardships and came out with a few life lessons: 1) God is the center of all of the good and the bad in order to build character or develop leadership skills you never knew you had 2) You are more than your situation 3) Everyday is another tomorrow 4) And there are no victims in life. Bad things happen and its up to you to find the motivation to get past it. Your not aways going to have other around to support you. In a relationship I am looking for a partner. When you are with someone no one person should have to still work as hard as if they were working alone. Its a partnership. I want a man who is able to take care of me both emotionally and financially even though I love to work. I need a man who is mature, financially responsible but also spoils and goes all out, loves children, not judgemental, patient and has a healthy sense of humor.
