I am a survivor of war, poverty, and I’m a refugee very fortunate to be living in America. I am forever indebted to America for the rights, protection, freedom, and the many wonderful opportunities it has provided me. I came to to this country in 1989 when I was 13 years old. I lived in the Bay Area, California, for about 15 years. While there, I completed my college education in San Francisco and Sacramento, respectively. I moved to Alexandria, Virginia in 2004. I wasn’t happy living here at first, but eventually I adapted and tried to do the best I could to have a normal life. I have been divorced for over 3 years. I have joint custody of my two kids who live with me. I also live with my mom who is a widow, who helps take care and raise my children so I can focus on my job. I love my mom and my children, they are my joy, they make me smile, and they keep me going, but there is a part of me that is missing, and that is the special person whom I am still waiting to meet.
I am a shy, quiet, and peaceful person. I had a rough and unhappy childhood growing up. While life was hard, I have learned to be humble, to be kind, to be honest, and to be respectful of others. I have learned to be thankful and greatful of what I have and to help those who are in need. Although I am now a happier and stronger person and am thankful and greatful of what I have, my life remains incomplete without that special person. I feel that I am ready to move on with my life and to establish new relationships.
I enjoy outdoor activities on nice weather. I like to run and jog outside and on the treadmill, but I have not been active like I used to in a while. I love listening to the music because it keeps me connected with my feelings. I like to cook when I have time even though I am not a good cook. I love to eat out, but I do not do that often, I prefer to cook at home to save time and money. I love going to the movies, going shopping, traveling, and exploring different things. I have not done much of these things and I am hoping to do more of these things when I meet the right person.
I’m very proud to be an American but part of me remains somewhat traditional. My dream is to meet my prince charming who would fall in love me, I fall in love with him, and we marry each in a full traditional wedding :). I would like to meet a man who loves and respects me, treats me like a princess, spoils me, cherishes me, surprises me, and protects me and my love ones. In return, I would do the same for him. I am very sensitive yet affectionate. My ideal romance can be as simple as cuddling and watching a good movie, kissing in the sunset, holding hands, walking on the beach, and simply having a nice and peaceful dinner at home. I am the type of person who appreciates every little things that people do for me, as I have learned to never take things for granted. I am hoping to find a long lasting relationship. I believe that successful relationships require patience, perseverance, and sacrifices. I am looking for a lifetime partner, a soul mate who will hold my hands and take me through the remaining of my life journey. Ultimately, we must have attraction and chemistry to connect.
The man of my dream is someone who is easy going, honest, kind, thoughtful, generous, open minded, family oriented, committed, loving, caring, and having a good sense of humor. He must love children and embrace differences. He must be dependable and willing to protect and put the family first. He needs to be understanding, forgiving, and supporting. He would share similar goals and aspirations.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me. If I am not the match for you, best wishes in finding your true love!
