The one thing I am passionate about...
How about those Hawks!? I love my team. I definitely enjoy going to home games (hint, hint). I love watching basketball whenever I can. I am passionate about God and people as well. I strive to be the most loving person that I can be. I am truly devoted to loving those around me.
I typically spend my leisure time
Working out & being healthy... Trying to keep it sexy ;-) I also enjoy cooking and spoiling whoever that I am with! Can't wait to meet that lucky guy. I enjoy playing piano, guitar and singing. I am also writing a book as well as planning a women's conference in Illinois next year. I recently changed careers. I love speaking life-coaching and teaching. Working on doing that full-time.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who loves God. If he loves God and me then we have the essentials for a successful relationship. I am also looking for a man who is open to a growing relationship. We definitely don't have to start fast but I expect him to emotionally invest in me as I invest in him and we walk the road together. I am the type of woman that no man is looking forward to getting rid of so long-term commitment won't be an issue, but I am the type of lady who wants a ring. I would like my special guy to be have a car (a 96 Kia Sephia is fine:), an apartment (does not have to be fancy as long as it is not with Mom ;) and a job that he attends every day.
The first thing people notice about me
They notice that I am bubbly and keep people smiling. I am sociable and sometimes the center of attention but I don't mind sharing (smile). I am often referred to as "Sunshine".
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Always Looking Up" by Michael J. Fox. Great book! He talks about his Parkinson's disease and how it's affected his life and his optimistic attitude about it all is inspiring. I also really enjoyed the movie "Peaceful Warior" its funny and insightful.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God in my life
- My friends and family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a very giving woman and I am looking for that life-long love. Someone who will accept me when I am old and toothless and I will accept him in his brown leisure suit driving his 74' Vega to his Walmart greeter job. Seriously though, I seek a real and abiding love based on God and committment and I have no problem offering that in return.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Loyal, Optimistic, Outgoing
A little more about me
I'm a cut up. I love to laugh. I also don't like drama and stress...I like to live a stress free life :-). Possessions and material things don't mean a lot to me. I value experiences and relationships over those things. I seek someone who is understanding, gracious, has a good character, honest, emotionally available, affectionate, mature and sincere. Not that you have to be a sappy dude but let me know that you care. I am not a mind reader :-)
