My self-summary
It's taken me a while to fill this out.I find it difficult to sum up my life and "self" so briefly and online at that!I've read summaries that go on for paragraphs!Which is fine but mine will be brief: I am a work in progress.However my childhood growing up as the youngest of nine siblings was/is an essential part of the woman I am today.At a young age I learned the importance of communication,patience,tolerance,compassion,empathy,generosity and forgiveness but still strive to convey these qualities without fail.Far from being spoiled,I was encouraged to stand up to bullies,fight fair,be independent and mature.That being said,I will own up to the occasional flash of bratty behavior but am mature enough to apologize.As for labels(which I try to avoid):I'm feminine but not overdone,attractive and am attracted to feminine women.However I am open to the possibilities of attraction and not into role-playing.I hope this gives some insight for now.Besides isn't the point of dating/friendship "getting" to know someone versus knowing it all before you even meet?
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a Counselor for a State Agency.I feel blessed to have a job that I enjoy.Something I recently started doing is researching my ancestral life origins.Hence my username which is a play on Black and Finnish.I enjoy sporting events,concerts,antique stores,waterfront vistas,museums,historical:tours&church architecture,Festivals,Fairs and more.I am an East Coast native looking to visit more areas of the West Coast and Canada.
