I strive to be happy, healthy, funny, and greet life's experience's with an open mind and heart. I am a very hard working person in all areas of my life. I have extreme amounts of energy. Even my younger friends have a difficult time keeping up. I eat clean, exercise daily, and yes, I've been told I look like my picture, even better in person. I have a very demanding, and sometimes stressful job. Therefore, I dance. I am a retired Jazz/Lyrical dancer turned ballroom dancer. Dancing feeds my soul and makes me feel like I'm on an awesome vacation! I love performing and I'm looking forward to dancing in a ballroom competition soon. I am a firm believer in honest communication and follow through with my commitments. I appreciate people who have a fullfilling career, stability, honor themselves, and respect others. I struggle with people who want to rush into an instant relationship. Friendship first! I need connection, chemistry, time, space. I like to see how people deal with everyday situations. What is your character like? Do you follow through with promises? During a disaster....do you help, or run the other way? Do you pay your bills on time, or at all? Do you live in the present, or still in the past? Are you pleasant to the restaurant employees when the food sucks? I also have two wonderful dogs. No children. I am not interested in someone who lies, who does not have a job, or is unable to support themselves, does not have a car, license, or has had past problems with alcohol and drugs. If you are that person do not bother even leaving me a message.
