I am a single mom who lives a very well-rounded life. I love adventure, discovering new things and going to places that I have never been to.
I work in cancer clinical research, which I truly love, since I am always learning about the latest science and hope to make a difference in cancer patients' lives. It is never dull and very challenging.
I enjoy working out after work to keep balance in my life and reduce stress. I ran 2 half marathons in the past year. I really like the insanity work out,weight-lifting, running along the ocean and sports conditioning classes at the gym.
I love traveling, especially to international destinations. I never go to the same place more than once. Luckily my job gives me frequent opportunities to travel to Europe. It would be nice to share exciting trips like those with someone. I am an outgoing person so even though I travelled alone, I always ended up meeting people and having fun.
I love great red wine and a good french martini while out with friends and eating great food. I like many kinds of food: sushi, steak, Italian food, Mexican food, burgers, salads, seafood, etc.
I am an 80's alternative music fan. My favorite band of all-time is U2. But I keep very current with the latest music. I like many kinds of music - dance music, classic rock, my CD collection shows how diverse my taste in music is. I am sure it would surprise. I just went to see Michael Buble in concert - great time! Very funny and talented guy.
I am a huge Yankee fan! I go to see them for a few games every year on the West Coast. I have surprised several men with my knowledge of baseball. I enjoy watching football, too. And yes, I do know what a 1st down is.
I am originally from El Paso, TX. I recently moved to CA for a new job in Dec 2011.
Besides all of the stuff above that I enjoy for myself, as an individual, I love being there for my daughter when she stays with me when school is out of session. My daughter is 11 years old and is the absolute best thing that I have done my entire life. Being a mom is very rewarding to me. I love talking with her. I love dogs, too. I have a chocolate lab, Kona (5 yrs old). She is great. I like to jog with her and take her to the beach.
What makes me unique is that I am very flexible person. I enjoy doing just about anything (except with heights) from a dive bar in cut-off and flip-flops, watching sports, jogging, watching movies, going to concerts, to getting dressed up in sexy clothes and dancing or going to a nice place for dinner. Variety is what makes things even better. I am very outgoing, funny and spontaneous. I am always doing nice things for friends and thinking of others. I enjoy making a difference in people's lives and do this through charitable organizations, like Team in Trainig for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I have been through many things in my life and I do not expect perfection, so I accept people for who they are and value people who have courage to be honest and be themselves.
The first time I meet someone, I would rather meet at a cool place for drinks so we could talk and see how interested we are. I don't consider this a "date". The first date comes next if we both are interested...Dinner with great wine and a great conversation at some relaxing place where we do not have to be in a hurry and can get to know each other.
