The one thing I am passionate about...
All sports and outdoor activities, especially basketball, going to the beach. I love going to church (so long as I am compatible with it). I LOVE family gatherings and activities more than anything because I have a very big, close-knit family. I love all kinds of music, and would listen to it around the clock if I could. I find a lot of joy in making things, decorating, and spending time with my puppies (two miniature pinschers). I love to go dancing--all types. I can cook and bake very well and often create my own recipes, or cook without them. I do not have any favorite tv show or even watch it much, but i really enjoy UFC fights.
I typically spend my leisure time
When I have no time constraints and no plans, I like to take nice long bubble baths, go for walks with my dogs, and sometimes drive to the beach and watch the waves roll in. I like to stay busy, but when I am feeling like a low-key or quiet night, bruschetta and wine by candle light with some tasteful music will hit the spot rather nicely. Then there are those cooking days: experimentation makes for perfection. I have a wide variety of interests, but its nice to take it down a notch every once in awhile.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a man whose values and characteristics are old fashioned, in a sense, yet modern in application. I am looking for someone whose foundation is that of strong morals, long standing traditions, and firm beliefs. I am seeking for a man that is strong in his convictions, yet quick to humble himself, and all too competent of unconditonal love and support.
The first thing people notice about me
My confidence. I do not strut and I do not cower. I make it a point ot look people in the eyes when I am engaged in conversation and to think before I speak. I am aware of both my strengths and my weaknesses and I will speak of them openly.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am in the process of reading "The Shack." It is a fictional book that primarily serves as a way to reach to people who struggle with their faith during times of immense pain. I am reading it as a favor to one of my very good friends who is deployed to Afghanistan. I thought it would give me some insight as to where he stands. I have been trying to bring him to God for years.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My mistakes, and everything I have learned from them/ had to endure because of them
- My family, close Marine friends. They are my foundation and because of that, I will confident in my decision to branch out.
- I am thankful for the little things that make life so beautiful, things that are always attainable when money comes and goes.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My desire to be "melted"...Let me explain: Because of my generally attractive appeareance and assertive nature, I often project the image that I am a woman who has "got it all together". I think that often times men are afraid to approach me or pursue a relationship with me because I am very independent and self-sufficient. Because of my professions, I have a tendency of not really letting my walls down enough for people to see me as someone who wants--or even needs--someone else to contribut to my life on a deeper level. That is a misconception. In all honesty, I hope to find someone who can challenge AND balance me.
