I'm hard-working, honest, and have accomplished everything in my life on my own merit. I would love to meet someone with the same dedication. At the same time, it also makes me an incredibly stubborn individual. I'm honest and expect honesty in others. In my youth it made me naive, but I still enjoy the hope that most people are there to do well by themselves and others. It also took me until I was older, but I find myself to be a strong, beautiful, loyal, loving, but at the same time very candid, probably too much so to the point I can rub some the wrong way.
Music I prefer any sort of rock, including hard, metal, classic, alternative, etc. Also enjoy country if I'm in the mood. Don't really have as many hobbies as I would like do to the difficulty of trying to work, take care of a little one, and run a household. However, I am always interested in trying and doing new things.
So wanting to add some more about my likes, one of my favorites is travel and find foods. I absolutely love watching the travel channel, specifically "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmer", "Man v. Food", "No Reservations", any of the extreme homes, and "Passport to Europe". I have been to France a couple times and would love to live there some day, but don't see it as being realistic as my French is conversational at best and having my daughter has bound me to "normal" life. I especially love Mediterranean cuisine, from French to Middle Eastern and everything in between!
As for my personal likes, I do tend to have a rather dark sense of humor and dry sense of humor, but I always try to find the lighter side in everything. Hey, you only have one life to live so I'm for damned sure I'm going to enjoy it! I love anime and video games, especially RPGs but unfortunately don't have as much time to play since I'm all grown up now :). I love art of all forms (from creative writing , mostly because I lack the ability to do any myself so I appreciate those who have amazing talents.
Hope this helps to give a little further insight into myself!
