I am loyal and supportive and funny and smart and unpredictable and stable and fun and thoughtful and serious and classy..... and very independent. At the end of the day, I will do anything for the ones that I love and treasure my friends and family. I have 2 young children, and although their father is not financially supportive of them or me, I have success in my business and am financially able to care for myself and them. I love to stay active and really enjoy running more than anything else. I also enjoy cycling and hope to get into swimming soon so that I can take on triathlons as my next endeavor. I have many friends in the running and cycling community and hope to find someone who is equally excited about staying healthy. I love to cook and bake, and really love to eat. I'm not the girl you take out to dinner who orders the salad and picks at it --- unless I've told you I'm not hungry prior to going. My ideal match would be someone who is intelligent and who has a sense of humor. Equal to those attributes would be an adventurous spirit and a motivation to stay fit. Although I'm 49, my friends range in age from 25 to 70, so my match would be someone who is open minded who can see the good and value in everyone, regardless of age. I want to be around someone who enjoys life as much as I do. I enjoy experiencing new things and don't mind being thrown into an entirely strange situation or atmosphere. A deal breaker for me would be a drug addict or alcoholic -- recovering or not. I grew up on the border of Texas so love the hispanic culture as many of those traditions were adopted as our own as a family. I have no desire to jump into a 24/7 relationship. Instead, I would like to get to know someone and develop a friendship which organically transitions into a relationship. I believe that if something is mean to be, it will happen.
