Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a wonderful laugh and huge zest for life. I am able to
acknowledge that the only real constant in life is change. I know
there is a place for tradition but there is also a place for new
ways, new ideas, new systems, and new approaches. I don't put
obstacles in my way by being blinkered and I am always open,
forgiving and willing to listen to other's ideas. I know no one is
more important in the world than anyone else and everyone has a
place in the world. When that right person comes along I am
passionate about the promise and opportunity that we will find in
front of us. I am by nature a giver. I feel my greatest pleasure
when I know my partner is happy. I love to touch and be touched and
believe there are times when the best feeling in the world is to
hold. I am passionate that as partners that we care enough and are
not afraid to let each other know which it is we need or desire. I
love the search for what makes each of us feel good. I am
passionate that as a couple we understand the "We" while embracing
the "I". I am passionate that sometimes it takes a lifetime to get
there but there must always be a fire inside each of us that has to
be continually fed by the other in order to finish the trip. I do
not believe you find this type of passion initially. I believe you
feel a spark and if you will nourish it this passion will grow and
can last forever. I hope to find someone to experience this with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work with people daily in a setting that absolutely, positively,
beyond the shadow of a doubt "KNOW" they are completely right! I
believe perspective and perception are key elements to discovery in
any situation. On a more personal level, to me there are "no big
deals" in life and eventually everyone will know I am right anyway!
... just kidding! I am generally accepting of others opinions. It
doesn't mean I do not have an opinion or will not express my
opinion. I would guess it comes down to appropriateness. My job I
love what I do. I have seen the best and worst of these beings we
call humans. I have experienced the greatest highs and the lowest
lows. I have touched and been touched by many people. I would not
trade these experiences for anything.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I enjoy helping people resolve their disputes and improve their
relationships for the future. I enjoy helping people find more
peaceful resolution of their conflicts.I think effective dialogue
is the key to healthy families, communities and organizations.
The first things people usually notice about me

The first thing people notice about me is the quality and the level
of energy I give, my attitude, my poise and my wardrobe. People
notice when I laugh, it is not fake but sincere and from the heart.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The Logic of Life - Tim Hartford The book uses rational economic
theory and behavioral economics to explain the logic behind some of
our everyday choices and decisions. The book is light in reading
and offers a great perspective into a lot of topics such as crime,
office politics, poker, divorce rates etc and Song of Solomon by
Toni Morrison. It is a novel that weaves our shared slave past, the
civil rights movement and a good old fashioned treasure hunt into a
resplendent tapestry of epic proportion. I think Oscar Wilde is
brilliantly witty ,his plays are charming and have many levels to
them and also Pat Conroy is amazing.
As for music, I love music. I love classical music; I love jazz; I
love the blues; I love rhythm and blues. I love what is now called
classic rock (must mean I am a classic Marina); I love musicals. I
sometimes like some folk music. I am less fond of but do not rule
out country music. I think the concept of music is one of the most
beautiful things humans have come up with. I say the concept of
because obviously I do not believe all music to be beautiful, there
is some shocking stuff out there but hopefully you know what I
I am passionate about LIFE! I love travel, food, fashion, great
design, interesting people who have traveled, eaten, worn
interesting things and enjoy great design . I just feel like life
is an amazing adventure and we all have the chance to explore the
world any way we imagine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Great conversation , Education and a Sense of Humour
Human love and the quality of being Magnanimous
My cell phone, as this provides me with a means of communication
High speed internet access(dial up is so outdated)
Music, Hockey, Companionship and a great Book
Continuing to expand my knowledge and awareness
The animals in my life (both people and pets haha)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Someone easy going. Someone that understands that I may work long
days and maybe I just need to unwind for the first hour home,
sometimes but, will still be available to hear about your day
because you work hard also .. someone that knows how important it
is to stay active in a relationship. When you have a day off, you
send me flowers or take me out to lunch, when I have a day off, I
will meet you at the door with something or nothing on! I am a 1
man woman. I expect the same. I want to be excited about who I am
with till the day I depart and hopefully we will both work hard on
a relationship that will last. No one unbalanced, mentally.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I enjoy reading ,traveling ,listening to music and enjoying the
beauty of nature
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As an American black woman, I frequently encounter false and
presumptive stereotypes:about my intelligence, my voice and my
cultural level in my business world. Societal stereotypes often
pre-judge a person based on ethnicity. It's shameful that many
Americans have not moved further than this in 2015.. I wish people
would notice that I am older than 30. I look young for my age which
can be more of a curse than a blessing at times .
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I want someone who is willing to begin a journey with me knowing
the end result will be based on how much of ourselves we are
willing to give to each other. I want that one man who enriches my
life as much as I would enrich his. Race is Not Important. I don't
think any relationship should be judged by the race of the people
involved. I beleive that if you find love, then you should do
everything you can to nurture that love. It's a privilege not
everyone is blessed to experience.
I do not believe I am asking too much. I know every relationship
will have trials and tears, that is part of the circle of life but
working together anything can be overcome. I am looking for a
partner that is serious about finding the right person and is
committed to making it work.
