I am looking for an honest and beautiful woman who loves children and has a great sense of herself. She should feel free to speak her mind (I like to listen) whenever she likes, and feel up to the challenges each day may bring! I am not a fan of negative, depressed, sarcastic or possessive people in general, but try to surround myself with charitable, trustworthy, loyal, friendly and energetic folks who want to make the most of themselves in life. I want to share my life with someone who likes to share. I am an attorney and have a great network of professionals with whom I leverage my collective skill sets. I am finding myself more involved in real estate and investments than the law, yet I have to do what I can until it all gels... I'd like to share what I have, listen most of the time, learn to play the guitar again, etc. My goal is to become completely debt-free by working harder and smarter. I am constantly improving my efficiencies and abilities. I want to work out routinely in 2012. I want to walk my dog at least three long walks each day. I want to be with my family as much as possible. I want to travel the world when my job becomes optional. Having been blessed with an excellent education, great friends, and an independent mind, I am able to help people reach goals and achieve dreams, yet I find it very difficult to reach my own by myself. I do not beat myself up, and I forgive others everyday. As for uniqueness, I can speak other languages, I have family all over Europe and southern USA. I have no sisters, but three brothers, the youngest being 24. I am an entrepreneur and create opportunities for my group of colleagues and clients. As for music, I have a wide variety, but had enjoyed the seasonal Christmas tunes. I like country and rock-n-roll, some hip-hop, reggae, jazz and classical. Unfortunately, I do not know many lyrics, so I can not sing along often...
Picasso is one of my favorite artists and I have seen many of his original paintings.
When I have spare time, I enjoy quality time with my friends.
Family is extremely important to me. I turn off my cell phone when I am with my children, and become unplugged. I get on my hands and knees to play games with them, and when they ask questions, I come down to their level and speak to them as I would an adult.
I enjoy art shows and galleries, museums and musicals, and visit new restaurants when they open.
Baseball (Yankees), football (Tennessee Vols and Titans). But I do not see many very many games as I prefer to plan my work and work my plan.
My favorite movies include: "Something About Mary", "Forrest Gump", any James Bond movie....
Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite writers, along with John Steinbeck, but I enjoy the motivational books as well. I used to travel before I had my children, and am looking forward to visiting my mother in Europe with the kids this summer (if all goes well).
First date It would depend on my date. If music is an option, I'd like to wear a tux and attend a formal affair at the Saratoga gala. If food is the focus, I'd look for a brazilian steakhouse or an exotic indian or cambodian venue. If dancing, then I'd prefer to watch! But I'd do my best. Eventually, I'd ask some superficial questions, then drill down a bit to see if the chemistry is there. At the end of the night, I would be able to drive soberly, and offer to connect again. I never burn bridges.
