In an effort to be more practical (especially when it comes to utilizing this sort of medium), I feel it is important to be open, honest, and forthcoming about the kind of man I am attracted to and can ultimately see myself dating.After many years of casually dating, I am finally at a point to facilitate the idea of dating that one great guy for me! It's been a long time coming, but I am an avid believer in the notion that wonderful things come to those who posses the virtue of patience and longsuffering.
So, I guess for starters I should disclose a lil' about myself, huh?Well here it goes:I'm a single Mother to an amazing 4 year old. This is our first year of Pre-k and we couldn't be more enamored with the experience thus far.I'm also very career driven in the fact that I'll do anything (moral and legal of course;) to provide a comfortable lifestyle for me and my child.And while I have an affinity for the finer things in life, I no longer let them control or define me.Would it be great to have it all? Of course!, but the difference is that I've learned that you can have just as fulfilling of a life (if not more) without all the material things.I truly believe that peace, joy, love, and freedom are the pinnacle of true happiness. But don't take my new found revelations for granted either.I'm still a woman, and I love all the perks that come with being one.And guys...I mean that in the most PG of ways ;)
I would best describe myself as a modern woman with old-school values.This simply means that I embrace the traditional ways of courtship, yet do not let it solely define my dating apprach ie. those silly "rules" many women swear by.However, effort can go a long way when attemting to show a woman that you're interested in getiing to know her.
Without sounding haughy or arrogant, I'd say that I'm a pretty spiffy catch.At least that's what my Mom tells me.She tells me in that traditional Mexican Mom voice, "Aye Mija you've got it all, looks, brains, and personality!" Discalimer: She's my Mom and I think it's in the Mom Handbook, Bi-Law 13, that all Mom's must say this to their budding Princesses.Whatever it is, I'll take it. Compliments are nice, and I really like getting them, I think that's the "perk' thing surfacing again,ha
In all honesty, I've learned to be modest, and be kind in my moments with everyone I come across.Plus, a (genuine) smile carries a lot of weight I've noticed.It doesn't take a lot to make a difference in this World, it merely takes a willingness to be a vessel for the greater good-something I've learned over time.
I've always been pretty selective when it comes to the opposite sex.Like many people in the world, I craved the holy grail, something that rarely exists. Since becoming a Mom, my standards are now even higher, but different, and in a good way of course.What I mean, is that things that use to be at the top of my list have been transposed with some that were closer to the bottom and vice versa.Over time, I have learned what is truly important and worth cherishing in this life.
With that said, I'm human, and still have my deal-breakers.So here it goes:I want a guy who knows how to pick and choose his battles.A man who will let me when the battle, when he knows that he'll eventually win the war.If you get what I'm trying to say, then you should e-mail me..seriously!
Physically speaking, I tend to be attracted to taller, slender build, studious guys.I love Specs..can someone say,"Clark Kent!" And while style is subjective, I love a guy who is comfortable with fashion, yet maintains his own personal style.I like men with classic features who are clean cut with a slight edge.
Now the real deal: I like smart, saavy,educated, worldly men with a sensible demeanor.He will exhude a humble confidence, going after what he wants, yet can discern when to retreat.He will be compassionate and charitable to everyone, not just me.And most important of all, he will have a huge...heart of gold.
