I like to think of myself as a sincere person. I usually say what I mean and mean what I say (but I do it quite gracefully). I am a person that sticks to my word. I'm honest, very friendly, kind and compassionate. Not a snob at all. I'm generous and loyal. I'm hard working and I am passionate about my work (portrait photographer). I follow my own sense of what is right and wrong - it usually serves me well and keeps me grounded. I love to dance and have been dancing almost my entire life. It's not something I necessarily have to share with a friend or partner but it is a large part of who I am. I love almost any kind of individual sport as well - skiing, hiking, biking (but not really into swimming - the water's usually too cold - or sky diving - don't like jumping from high places). My favorite time of year is summer. I love the long, lingering days of light, the smell of everything in bloom, the warm nights and the more leisurely pace of the season. I also think summer is the most romantic time of the year. I am, unequivocally, a true romantic. I believe your dreams can come true. You should reach for the stars. You can attain anything you set your heart on. You can fall in love and stay in love and there is that one special person. I love romantic gestures - they make me feel womanly, appreciated and loved. They make you appear manly, capable and strong. I don't need to be right but I need to be understood and cared about. Sorry is a word I have no trouble using. I am supportive and nurturing and a great confidante. I like my alone time and space - I'm not the smothering kind - but am always there if you need me. I love and live life, learn from my mistakes and look forward to every next day.
