I am a fierce and loyal friend. You can come to me at anytime for anything and I would not turn you away. I am genuine, financially stable and emotionally mature. I am confident, self-reliant and very down to earth. I have the ability to unite my strength and autonomy with compassion and kindness. I live life with no regrets. I am open-minded and work very hard at being non-judgmental. I work to live, not live to work but I do enjoy my career and I am very good at what I do. I laugh out loud, a lot?usually at myself. I have a great sense of style and am just as comfortable in running shoes and sweats as I am in a ball gown and heels. Looks are important? to all of us, whether we admit it or not. I love to cook. I love morning coffee. I love yoga. I enjoy the theater and orchestra, football and baseball games, fancy restaurants and those little hole-in-the-wall restaurants. I also have the need for personal time and space to reflect on my life and emotional well being and must be allowed that time when necessary. I am the mother of an amazing 13 year old boy. I?ve learned more from him than I ever thought possible, especially about love. He gives me perspective, reminds me of why I?m here and the person I want to be. I am looking for a man who is confident with who he is and where he?s at in life and what he wants out of it. He?s emotionally and financially stable. He?s a man who?s fused love and kindness with a little arrogance and attitude. He is chivalrous but doesn?t cry at the drop of a hat. He has his own hobbies and friends and will not solely rely on me for his happiness. To me, true love begins with boiling hot chemistry and inherently evolves, with passion and romance, through time from there.
