I was born up north but raised here in Florida. I lived in Miami until 2006 and I've been divorced for a year now.
I’ve missed out on YEARS of happiness in the personal relationship arena. So, I’ve spent a lot of time this past year trying to figure out what I hope to find in my next relationship;
I would love to meet someone who can hold a conversation deep or meaningless (prolific is better), but doesn't feel they have to fill every moment of silence. A great sense of humor is a given! Someone who thinks special occasions are worth the effort of remembering, not just setting a reminder on their smart phone. Someone who likes to be affectionate.
Someone who wants to hang out with the guys now and then -but thinks QT with their someone special is more important, unless your friend needs you - then you should be "that guy", even its 3 a.m..
Someone who is capable of making a commitment someday with someone, not someone who knows they want to play the field indefinitely.
I absolutely love the gentleman type (no feminist here), and promise to say thank you for every door opened and every chair pulled out.
Someone who is stable emotionally and financially, with no prior convictions and drug free and is baby mama drama - or just plain ‘ol drama free (I’m not judging, but I will not take any unwarranted risks with regards to my children).
Lastly, the ability to be faithful in a serious relationship is paramount.
Bonus points if you are tall and easy on the eyes – guess everybody wants the same things.
As for me… I do have kids and YES! they are great kids!! How did you know?! ;) Its amazing everyone on here has the great ones, makes you wonder who the rotten little s--ts that run all over restaurants belong to!?! Well, they gotta belong to somebody!! lol...
I do hate reality shows. I don’t like hiking, kayaking or camping – sorry – but hey, if there’s a cabin with indoor plumbing – then I’m open to discussion. I’m not the “roughing it” type – that doesn't mean I don’t like the outdoors. I am Latin (my parents are Cuban, they moved here pre Castro -latin people understand why thats mentioned :D, my father served in this country and I am of Spaniard and French descent).
I do speak English and Spanish fluently, no accents on either side. I am pretty much a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl, easy going and down to earth. That doesn't mean I don’t like to dress up, be girly and frilly sometimes too – but if that is important to you 24/7 – then, strike 1 for me :o
I don’t like insufferable know–it–alls, but greatly appreciate intelligence. I am a little overweight - no amount of working out will ever make me a twig, so if that's a deal breaker we are not meant to be, but that’s doesn't mean we can't be friends anyway.
I should mention that there are a lot of cute pics of you guys with your extended family (pets) I am very sorry but I am allergic to animals :( . I love them but cant be in enclosed areas with them – I blame my parents and their genes >:(
That being said I have owned bull terriers and Neopolitan mastiffs, it really comes down to how much dander and shedding.
So..... thanks again for visiting and reading this far.
