I'm a laid back, down to earth, drama-free, elementary school teacher and I'm on my 8th year teaching. Hard, hard, HARD work, but usually worth it in the end....did I mention it was hard work?? I'm easy to get a long with and LOVE LAUGHTER!! It's the key to enternal youth, in my opinion! I'm known for my positive, cheerful spirit...one who can brighten any bad mood! My ethnicity is one of many...try Cuban, Indian, African America, German, Jewish, Spain...and who knows what else.
I love sports and the outdoors. I try to go camping at least once a year. I'm dieing to go white water rafting again. It's been YEARS!! I'm currently a 1st Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. However, it's been about 7 years since I last trained. Volleyball is my all time favorite sport to play. I have been known to also play tennis racquetball from time to time. I love dancing and last minute road trips(espeically during the summertime).
I truly believe in music and the powerful influences it can have on you. Music is indeed the soundtrack of our lives so why not embrace it! If you can dance latin, that's a major plus! I'm pretty eclectic all around...entertainment, music, food, etc.
I'm a firm believer in Jesus Christ strive to invlove him more in my life each day. I go to church and have been involved in various outreach programs throughout the years. I haven't been involved the way that I'd like to be so I am definitely looking for someone cruisin' at that same speed, if not faster!
I try to travel as much as my budget and time will allow. I had an awesome trip in Europe(London, Berlin, Prague, Rome) 3 summers ago for 3 weeks. Having those 2 months off during the summer certainly helps! I have plans to visit Ireland next summer! I would love to see as much as I can!
I love family and feel that it is a very important part of life and would like to meet someone who shares the same belief.
I think balance is key in just about any relationship. I think a girl/guy needs to have his/her own time and space outside the relationship. I believe that we should add to each other's happiness and not depend on each other for it.
I love working out/eating right to stay healthy and fit and am looking for someone of that same caliber. I workout at the gym 4-5 days a week for 2 hours(mostly fitness classes like Zumba and weight training)! It's a MUST that I'm with someone who can hang with that same schedule! Exercise is my X-factor and must be a part of my daily routine for me to stay fit! Ya feel me? LOL
If any of these things get your attention, feel free to throw me your line....if it's the right one, you just might reel me in! (cheesey line, I know, but I couldn't help myself)
Don't bother messaging me if you:
*can't handle sarcasm (It will only frustrate you to be around me)
*don't believe in God/Jesus (Big time no-no)
*take life to seriously (You won't get any of my witty comments and jokes)
*have an unwillingness to be active (doesn't necessarily mean the gym, talkin' about hangin' out, takin' trips....and I don't mean that every minute of the day needs to be action-packed)
*will get embrrassed if I like a song that's playing in a public place I decide I need to dance
to it right then and there. (the dude I'm lookin' for would join me in a heartbeat)
*are looking for a one-night-stand (ummmm...sorry for ya)
*have no ambition in life(turn off), including career goals, family, fitness, etc.
*have no desire to have children
*don't like animals(big time turn-off), I'm an animal lover...if I was a super hero, animal abuse would be my kryptonite!!
