I'm a driven, successful career woman who enjoys the finer things in life & a mother to 2 incredible teenage boys who never fail to make me laugh & keep me on my own toes. I married young so I haven't dated in many (many!) years. The thought of doing so is both scary & exciting. One of my girlfriends has had a positive experience with Match so I decided to take a leap of faith & give it a try for myself! I'm originally from Chicago, finished highschool in Vegas & have been here since. I'm very family oriented & host holidays at my house every year. I'm witty, social, can hold my own in an intelligent conversation, have a huge heart, love affection, enjoy dressing up & will never turn down a nice dinner. Marrying at a young age & starting a family right away brought me insurmountable blessings. However, in the last few years, I realized there have been things lacking from my life & that the only way I'd ever give myself the chance to experience them was to be brave & make some changes. "True love finds us once we realize we are the one we've been searching for." Knowing myself SO much more, now, I have a clear understanding of what I will & will not settle for & sacrifice. I have an open mind & an open heart; while I don't need to jump into something serious, right away, I definitely don't want to get involved in anything superficial. I'm thrilled at the prospect of meeting a man who is attractive, upbeat, equally ambitious, also appreciates the finer things in life, is confident, assertive, hilarious, loves to travel, is proud to walk into a room with me & who won't take me for granted.
