I am a 31 year old African-American woman living in Las Vegas who, after 10 years, is finally tired of The Strip scene. I fall in love with the eclectic vibe downtown every time I am there because I adore diversity. Anything that is distinctive and unique grabs my attention so I love to meet and interact with people of different cultures, interests, and tastes. I am a smart girl with a smart mouth and I am looking for someone who can match my quick wit. At times my sarcasm borderlines unbecoming yet weirdly I hardly ever sense sarcasm in others.
My super-hero fatal flaw: My compulsion to speak my mind. I am definitely working on it and I know tact is a must. But most people hide behind false platitudes instead of just being honest and that annoys me to no end.
I am a political junkie! I follow local, state, and national politics to a fault. I am intrigued by the people we elect to represent us and our interests and I believe we have to stay informed. My political slant is to the left. I am a liberal lady and I firmly believe we have to be looking at how we can move our society forward. I believe the best in humanity is ahead of us not behind us.
I practice Christianity by tradition but I am open to the truth in all faiths and I believe in the values that resonate within my own spirit. But I attend church at least a couple of times a month and I try to pray or meditate regularly to keep myself centered.
Cooking, Football, and Funny- I love to cook! Whenever I try something at a restaurant that I like, I think of how I can make it myself at home. And my daughter eats it every night so I’d say I am pretty good at it. I am a new football fan. I am the girl who can watch the game with you and actually follow along and help you make a smart bet. I come from a football family (3 brothers who all played the game) but I never understood it. So a couple of years ago I did my research on Google and fell in love with it! My team is the San Francisco 49ers. Lastly, I simply love to laugh! I believe laughter is an experience rather than a reaction to humor. And of course since I love to laugh I am also pretty funny, probably the funniest girl you will ever meet. In my fantasies I moonlight as a comedienne.
MY MOTTO (1 of several): It’s the thought that counts. I will always be the girl that appreciates the level of thought that goes into what a guy dues rather than how much it costs. In that regard, I am easy to please because all I really want is sincerity and authenticity.
I am looking for a nice guy who is smart and open-minded to trying and learning new things. I interested in a man that actually likes women. We all know those guys who just like to have sex with women but they complain about everything that makes a woman feminine such as her varying degrees of sensitivity, her affinity to pretty, shiny objects, or her need for attention and affection. I want a guy that understands that women are different from men and can actually appreciate that about her.
I am looking for something long-term with someone I can be myself with. I am interested in someone who likes to have fun, travel and try new things. I tend to go for the laid back type but I love it when a guy can hold his own in a debate.
I believe a couple should be friends first if they are going to make their relationship last.
Family and friends are important to me and are a big part of my life. The man for me holds those same values. I’ve found that a guy who is a good friend usually has a good heart and everything else are minor details.
