I am a kind,caring person who can definitly be protective of my family and friends. My dogs make me smile as does jewelery, I hope to attract a nice,funny,caring guy with tattoos or with out who doesn't judge others for who they are. I am grateful for my large ,loving and close family, and my life. I love to laugh out loud to the point when your stomach hurts and I am just looking for a guy who is not a player and who's open minded and doesn't get grossed out by bodily fluids,LOL!!!!!! Right now I am passionate about becoming a Yoga instructor. I would love for someone to exercise with but not outshine me. Only kidding. I ha about the outshining part. And I can be a wise guy at times. I am also into holistic healing and as of late I have become a Reiki Practitioner (energy healing through the hands). I got into this through being sick myself. I suffer from a severe intestinal disease (which sucks) but I deal with it. It started when I was a little girl but manifested by the time I was in my 20's. It's a lot for others to deal with because depending on the day I can be fine or sick. But I am a fighter and have been fighting this disease for years and I am not ever giving up. I am up on all the new meds they have, have some great Docs in the city, Nassau and Suffolk. It has gotten better the past 2 years but I still have bouts and have to go to the hospital at times. But I don't have to spend the night there or weeks at time like I used to. Now it's usually IV fluids,pain meds and wait in ER until the pains and symptoms go away. I had to be honest guys because I have nothing to be ashamed of. I am who I am and that's a really good person, who doesn't feel sorry myself. I have been blessed with a great life regardless of this and I can handle it. I have a great support system and it is not cancer so thnk goodness! That's why I am looking for a strong guy who is empathetic,sympathetic and caring, aside from making me laugh(which is important to me) and must love dogs................hey, that's a movie isn't it? LOL So that's a little of my story and I'm stickin to it!!!!!!!!!!!!
