I'm a lover, not a fighter. Lover of LIFE, good food, good friends, good company. Respectful, old-fashioned gal, reserved but confident. Morals, values, appreciation of the finer things in life. Fond of animals, ALL animals. Fun, outgoing, flirty, creative, friendly, kind, warm, compassionate and nurturing soul. Hopeful, faithful, loyal looking for someone who can appreciate a one-in-a-lifetime catch! RESPECT: I like to give it, I like to receive it. I love adventure! I love exploring. I love the outdoors and I want to try new things. Intellectual, book worm, sabor running through my aching body, aching to salsa dance! Love GOD and appreciate all HE is, all HE stands for, all HE has given me and promises to give me. Lover of nature. Artistic, soulful, mindful curiosity of the unknown. I love dogs!! Grateful for my creator, grateful for family and friends, and grateful for new beginnings. I would like to attract a God-fearing man who is intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate, good, kind, a man with a firm set of valuesmoral compass. A man with integrity and character. A man who treats others, animals, himself, and ME with respect. A man who has a healthy level of ambition and likes to have fun. A man who wants to work hard for what he wants. A non-conformist! Someone who will always work at bettering himself. A secure, confident but not cocky gentleman who strives to be a good boyfriend, husband, son, brother, uncle, friend, etc. An adventurous man that will travel the world with me without hesitation! He has to be NICE. No if, and's or but's. Is this a dealbreaker? ABSOLUTELY. I love a man who is genuinely funny and can make me laugh!! I'm looking for a trust worthy man who is emotionally mature and capable of feeling and handling mature thoughts and emotions. I'm looking for a man who can "handle" when the going gets tough. I'm looking for a optimistic and positive man who can make the best out of every situation. I am looking for a man who values loyalty, fidelity and above all, RESPECT. Respect, Honesty, and Integrity, and loyalty are the foundation of any worthwhile relationship. Without them, there is no basis for a lasting friendship or romance. I'm passionate about life, art, music, family, GOD, friends, food, travel, nature, literature, poetry, writing, PETA. Enough about me. What about you?
