So...the famous Joey Triviani line..."How you doin'?" We all are on this site for a reason and mine is with the intent and with the grace of God to meet a quality gentleman who has a similar mentality as myself, lifestyle, background, and values, but a different personality cause variety is the spice of life! If we are like-minded and in agreement on major topics/beliefs, then that will set the tone for a stronger foundation and comfort level and then the only thing to "argue" about is what to make for dinner, what movie to see, where to go to eat, or that the toilet seat is left up. I tend to gravitate to people who use their manners, have class, are tactful, and not loud mouths, as well as are more conservative minded (pretty straight laced, not into tattoos, NO smoking, NO drugs, NOT big into drinking, promote education, healthful habits, adventure, and thank the Lord for our blessings). I grew up with two married and supportive parents (who are still together after fifty plus years) in a Polish, Catholic Family. Old fashion values, traditions from past generations, healthful habits (NO smoking of any sort), and family unity, and uniformity are essential in my life. We attended mass together with my parents as children and still believe a family that prays together...stays together (but that's not the sole reason...LOL). I am an honest, caring, warm-hearted woman who is a bit more on the conservative side with a quiet demeanor, but also am very friendly, attentive, and love to be around people. Laughter, joy, and happiness and looking for ways to be positive, enhance a challenging situation, and conquering obstacles all are my perceptions on how to get through day to day life one day at a time. I became a young single parent and currently am a single parent who raised my son alone with the help of family and thankful to have worked hard to obtain my bachelors degree, masters degree, and have longevity in a career that I always had and have a passion for. My son is a junior in high school and is the apple of my eye. I thoroughly enjoy time spent with positive people, relaxing with a great comedy, going to the movies, exercise, sporting events, out to festivals, amusement parks, day trips, traveling locally and internationally, concerts, cooking, decorating, etc. I appreciate down to earth people and have some awesome friends who I make an effort to keep in contact, as well as try to get together with to enjoy their company and life. I am pretty flexible and open to try new and different things. I enjoy a close family and being included in family activities, family bonding time, and eating meals as a family. A partner who knows how to draw out the best in one another, contribute positive energy, ambition, and advance to the next level of life and accentuate/celebrate the momentous occasions and be the rock during the storms in life. Sometimes it just takes that one glance, that one utterance, or that one voice to put a smile on your face from ear to ear. Having a genuine passionate partner, a best friend, a soul mate, and confidant mixed with love, honesty, sensitivity, humor, incredible chemistry, fun, happy times, traditions, faith, hope, dedication, loyalty, and most of all ...trust and hopelessly devoted to one another. If this seems like you (or pretty close)...what are ya waiting for? I would love to meet ya! Hope to hear from you before the next millennium! PS - I love a "jokster," but sincerity and building that trust is a must!! A man who is a role model to youngsters and an accomplished man is preferable...someone with a good head on their shoulders who is supportive and not combative!!
