I always heard that behind every great man there is a special woman - well, I just might be that special woman for you. I'm straightforward. I speak my mind with strength and conviction. I am also very romantic, nurturing and passionate; this is probably due to my SPANISH/ITALIAN heritage and ancestry. I am logical but sensitive. Confident. Loyal. Warm. Committed. Compassionate. Determined and serious about those matters demanding seriousness but otherwise fun-loving and celebratory!!! I am refine, tasteful, brought up to be a lady and able to structure my life in a way that will enhance yours. I wish for a drama-free relationship. Learn from past mistakes -don’t duel on what could’ve, should’ve or would’ve- and move on. I love to learn and strive to continually do so. I love children; I have 4 wonderful adult children, I and just became an empty nester. I believe children are the 2nd greatest gift from God to us. I would be honored to help parent my spouse's children. I believe that children learn through our example, therefore, being a loving parent, and a great role model will go a long way toward raising wonderful children. I like to eat healthy and stay in shape. As for sports, I like tennis, biking and jogging.
