Just moved back to CA from Florida, but have never lived in San Jose or the valley before. I love to travel, I have pets (two dogs), but they do not tie me down and prevent me from going places and doing things that I love. I have a lot to give to that lucky guy. I am strong in my faith, but I am not a "bible-beater", I respect all religions, but I want a man that is strong in his faith, he has to believe in the Lord. He may not go to church every sunday, but he prays and has a relationship with the Lord.
So, this is where I get harsh...hahaha...kidding, but please read this with me speaking in a tone that is as sweet and sincere as possible; imagine this statement as if I was your daughter hoping and dreaming about her husband... :)
I do not want a guy that is:
1.) NOT ready to commit to an amazing woman. You MUST be ready for a relationship. If it's not meant to be, that is fine, but don't drag it out--be honest with me. If I had a dollar for every guy that wants "friendship" and "isn't in a good place to date," I am going to figure out a way tattoo across his forhead "damaged goods"...haha. If a guy is not in a good place, why would you put your bio and pictures on website or state how you are ready to meet the woman of your dreams? Why would you let your friend set you up? These are all excuses and if you agree with me here, then please read on, if not, please stop and move on.
2.) Doesn't want to pin-down another date with me. If I go out with a man and he wants to see me again, he needs to make it happen because I am the girl and he is the guy, I expect him to ask me. Further, if he really is interested in me he will make plans with me BEFORE the current date has ended, none of this "I will call you" stuff, if you are that type of guy, I am not the girl for you.
3.) I want someone that is a gentleman. He treats women with respect and does the right thing by them. He is the type that doesn't do things for women to impress them, but rather, it is in his second-nature to go and open a woman's car door....get what I mean?
3.) I want a man that wants to be around his girlfriend, spend quality time with her, that calls her, that isn't affraid of falling in love. I want a man that can be independent and wants his own time, that has a great career or a drive to succeed in his career and that wants get married to her after a year of dating. This "being together" after a year is a load of crap, I believe that after a year to a year and half of dating that when you are 28+ you know what you want and you know what you don't want. I want a husband that I can adore and that can enjoy his life as much as I enjoy my life. I want to give him freedom, I don't place rules or restrictions on him, I want him to love me value our relationship enough to where he will restrict himself and do what is right.
With that being said, don't misunderstand me, I do not like to jump into a relationship, however, when you know it is right, you want nothing more than to solidfy your feelings with that person.
I am very loving, secure and loyal; I am passionate, educated, upfront, honest and sincere. I want the same in a mate. Most men are intimidated by my career ambitions and passion...so there, I've said it, now its up to you to decide if you and I would mesh. : )
Physically speaking, I have dark hair, hazel eyes, and killer legs...haha. I am beautiful on the outside, but I am more beautiful on the inside. I know that is cliche to say, but it really is true. I am emotionally ready to meet someone special, but I definitely would like to grow a friendship and have a passionate love grow from that. Please don't think physical attraction doesn't matter...it does, so look the part and be CONFIDENT!
I like all types of food, music, dance, culture. I love to learn, I love to see other cultures, thus my passion for travel. I do work hard, so finding the time to travel can be difficult sometime, but hopefully, if I meet the right guy, I can push him and he can push me to find time.
I am looking for a guy that is attractive, but more importantly smart, funny and down-to-earth...oh and that supports himself financially. I do not need financial support, but I will not end up with someone where I am the only bread winner. Sorry I had to include that, but you would surprized how many people live in a financial lie.
ADDED NOTE: To those of you that read the autobiography to the end, thank you! haha. I did want to say that I get SEVERAL emails, sometimes 20 a day from all sorts of guys that I am sure are some very nice people. However, I cannot return all emails, it would become a full time job, so if I don't respond to you please do NOT take offense but also please be respectful of my decision to pass, and do NOT continue to email me. Have faith, I know I do that there is someone great out there for everyone! All the best.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date? Hmmm, good question. I am up for most anything, however, I think meeting for a drink or for a casual dinner is always best. I work hard during the week so I am not up for going for coffee or a walk, I am not high maintenance, but if we are "clicking" over the phone and emails, is it the worst thing to break bread and have a tapa and a drink with a pretty, smart woman? : )
