I have lived in Florida and Charlotte (back and forth) since second grade. I am extremely social, have a lot of friends and I like to spend time with those a care about. My family is dear to me and they will always be on the top of the list. I love children though I do not have any. I am extremley active, I love to exercise (compete) and I take this same competitive nature into my career. I am looking for an athletic woman who understands my drive to compete and preferably someone that would like to participate with me. I am laid back, not big on arguing and I believe that life is too short to shed light on issues that should be ignored. I am very open yet I maintain my privacy. I am not easily influenced if it is not something I care or think I should do. All these traits are what I embody and what I look for in my mate.
