I consider myself a down to earth woman. I recently changed careers. From the corporate world to Nutrition/Health field. I recently became a certified "Nutritionist" and I am currently in school and working to get my degree in Public Health. I work at an elementary school, where I teach Nutrition Education and P.E. I love to cook and I am one of "those people" that take pix of food. Some of my accomplishments in life are: Raising a beautiful, respectful, compassionate daughter; completing 1 full marathon and 5 half marathons. If you can run 26 miles you can do just about anything lol
I enjoy surrounding myself with positive people. I have an eclectic mix of friends. I am not impressed by material things. So if you think a car or something material will win me over it won't :) lol. ...Material things come and go but a person with a good heart, good intentions last much longer and to me are much more valuable than any car or extra large biceps. I am not looking for perfection, as no one is perfect. But what is impressive to me is someone that learns from mistakes and life's challenges and tries to grow from those lessons.
As cliche as it may sound, I am hoping to find my best friend. I believe a strong lasting relationship you should have a great friendship with your partner. Natural chemistry, trust, respect and laughter are also important.
I would like to find someone that lives a healthy lifestyle. This does not mean you have to be in the gym every day but that you pride in your health and take care of your health to the best of your ability.
Turn On's: Someone that is Spiritual (not religious), sense of humor, a great smile, family orientated, compassionate, hardworking, emotional intelligence/confidence , stimulating conversation.
Turn offs: Possessiveness, racism (or any ism) jealousy, drunken behavior, lairs, phoneys, saggy pants/pants worn lower than the waist. (Not everyone needs to see what color underwear you are wearing or lack of) AND Please don't say hi and then think you can turn the conversation into a sexual one. I can't believe I have to even say this but I do because men on here do that. I am not impressed by smooth talkers.
It takes more than that to catch my attention.
Some of my hobbies are; Dancing. I have been dancing for 30 yrs. Studying and performing.( I am preparing for an upcoming show in March 2014) In my free time you can find me at a local dance studio.
Cooking, spa days, festivals, making my home beautiful.
I love having motto's here are a few of mine:
"Treat People How You Want To Be Treated"
The fountain of youth is... doing what makes you happy, what brings you joy, what makes you smile and laugh. If it doesn't should you really be spending time doing it?
"If you do what you love you will never work a day in your life"
"If you never try you will never know" Do you have.a motto?
"One of the great tragedies of modern
education is that most people are not
taught to think critically. The majority of
the world's people, those of the West
included, are taught to believe rather than
to think. It is much easier to believe than
to think." - Haki Madhubuti, Poet
Here is a fun fact about me.... Someone that is on my family tree is "Charlie Parker" the jazz musician. If you are a true jazz fan you will know his "AKA name"
What is a fun fact about You?
P.S- If you don't have a photo I will not respond. After all if you can see what I look like it's only fair that I get to see what you look like.
