I am a caring, easy going person who’s spent my post-divorce period building a life of my own. It’s been a an interesting process: I feel like I’m getting to know myself for the first time and it’s just wonderful. I was born in beautiful Russia and have been in America for the past 20 years. I'm old-fashioned in dating, prefer that the man takes initiative and goes on a pursuit. Someone who is independent and is settled in their life (that includes emotionally) I am looking for an honest person. I think that communication is important to any sort of relationship, be it romantic or friendly. I love life and want to be with someone who loves life too. ... the world is out there waiting and I don't want to see it alone.
