My self-summary
Hello, and thanks for stopping by. ¡Hola, y gracias por visitarme!

A little about me: I am a foodie and lover of good music (I collect world music and have very eclectic taste--Brazilian, African, Indian, and the list goes on). As of late, my favorites genres are are zouk and kizomba (if you've never heard of these, look 'em up on YouTube--you won't be disappointed!). I enjoy watching movies and the ID channel. I sing a little--classical, jazz and some R&B--and I used to perform at a local theater (very long time ago). A nice date, to me, would consist of going to concerts, plays, movies, or dinner (especially ethnic restaurants). As far as cooking goes, I'm always creating unique dishes and sharing with people, and I love entertaining guests and occasionally having small dinner parties for family and/or friends. And yes, to answer your question, I DID prepare the dishes you saw above. I have a quirky (good quirky, that is) sense of humor and a warm, friendly disposition. I'm not selfish, and I'm thoughtful, loyal, affectionate, very romantic and supportive and drama-free. But most importantly, I'm honest. These are the same qualities I'm looking for in a man. Not so easy to find these days, but I remain hopeful that it will happen. I'm not looking for a perfect man--just the perfect man for me. But I'm all about giving my very best in any relationship I'm in, and the man I'm with should do the same and always be willing to put forth a real concerted effort to keep the relationship going. After all, relationships don't thrive on their own or with just one person putting in all the work. We should be priorities in each other's lives.

I'm looking for a NON-SMOKER (sooo NOT negotiable) who has at least what I have. I'm independent, I work, live alone, own my condo and have a car. Please, if you do not live on your own and do not own a car, then I'm sorry, but I'll have to pass. And please, just be yourself. This way, we won't be wasting each other's time. I'm a good woman who knows how to treat a good man.

Best of luck on your search! ¡Buena suerte en tu búsqueda!
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Category Buyer for a large foodservice company. It's an exciting career but can be quite challenging and demanding. And I LOVE that.

Currently, I'm working on several projects with my recipes. Hoping someday, one of them will be famous. :-)
I’m really good at
I'm good at cooking, singing, learning foreign languages, relating to people, public speaking, salsa-dancing and interior decorating.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, maybe? My voice is a close second.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love, love, LOOOOOOVE the I.D. Channel! I like all kinds of movies, but probably mostly romantic comedies. I've also been known to watch movies with lots of blood and gore. I'm a Bulls fan (despite their lousy performance this season). My taste in music is all over the place--from R&B to heavy metal (yep, that's right). I also enjoy listening to world music and have an extensive collection of it (love Brazilian, African, Indian, and this list goes on and on...and As far as food goes, I'm pretty adventurous. I enjoy Mexican, Caribbean, Indian, Japanese (including sushi), Chinese, Korean, Middle Eastern--almost everything ethnic.
The six things I could never do without
My home
My car
Eye shadow
My precious friends and family
(God is first, but the rest are not in order).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My life and how to best utilize my God-given talents.
On a typical Friday night I am
I do like to get out, but I also enjoy having friends or family over for dinner. I love playing hostess. When I do go out on a Friday night, I enjoy anything from a movie or an ethnic restaurant, to maybe a performance of some kind (like a comedy show or musical).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
You are a heterosexual man who is NOT into playing games and wants to be in a real relationship.

You live within 50 miles of me. Not looking for anything long distance, so you probably won't receive a response if you don't.

You are a non-smoker (of cigarettes and otherwise).

You have clear, recent pics posted and actually took the time to include some kind of details in your profile.

You are a foodie and are open to trying new things.

You are NOT married or separated.

You actually have something meaningful to talk about. I'm looking for someone of substance and who can carry on great conversation.

You are capable of greeting a lady with something other than "Hey, sexy". Confident, secure women (or at least this one) don't necessarily care for those kinds of messages from a perfect stranger and don't consider that a compliment. From my man, yes. From you...not so much. I can accept a compliment--just not that one.

You are NOT a swinger (yep, had to go there).

You don't have "casual sex" listed as what you're looking for on here.

20-somethings need not apply. Sorry.

Good luck in your search! ¡Buena suerte en tu búsqueda!
