I am looking for someone with a passion for people and life. I'm interested in meeting someone I can grow and build with; someone who is compassionate, honest, passionate, principled, intellectual, has a sense of humor and is also committed to his community. Sharing core values is important, I think. That way there is room to grow, build, and stay inspired by each other. I try to do better and become a better person everyday. I feel strongly that my ideal partner will be able to understand me, what I am about, and be able to help me improve as a human being. This person will be able to stimulate me on emotional, spiritual and intellectual levels and will push me to do better than I am doing. I think reciprocity is important in a relationship and I am committed to helping my partner improve in any way I can as well. I think that you have to be able to give of yourself wholly to a relationship, to the other person. This kind of reciprocity with your soul mate is a powerful thing. I face everything in life with laughter. Ask me if the glass is half full or empty; I guarantee my response will surprise you! LOL. I believe in honoring the ancestors who have worked in the most mysterious ways to make things happen in my life thus far. I spend my free time (if there is even such a thing) going to the movies, reading, writing, going to museums, galleries, art shows, and above all playing with my five-year-old son. I enjoy music and going to concerts. I like to travel and explore places. I think it gives you great perspective about who you are and it shapes your views and values about the world. I think it's important to know where you're from to know who you are, and since discovering my African ancestors and their movement to Sri Lanka from East Africa, I have embraced an Africana identity. I am looking for a long-term relationship. I'm seriously looking for someone that I can spend the rest of my life with and do some cool things with. I am specifically looking for an Africana-identified man who either has children or is definitely interested in having children. The "children" thing is important because I am a mother and take great pride in this role. I also definitely plan on having more kids, so this means a lot to me. I want to make sure that the man I choose to be with is a reflection of the kind of man I want my son to see and be. Everything in my life is preparing me for the moment I meet my King! I am confident that my ancestors and the most high will lead me to him!
