What do you like to do for fun?

In my free time, I like to be outside, spending time with friends and family, helping others, and teaching my Zumba ® class. My hobbies are cooking, running, sending cards to people and being with people I love. Something interesting about me is I ran six full marathons and five half marathons. Never say never and believe in yourself.


What do you look for in a partner?

The most important thing to me in a partner is that he is a Christian. I am a believer in Christ and I am very involved in my home church. I want a guy who is respectful to me and the people he interacts with. I want him to like me for me and not try to change me. Life is too short to be serious all the time, so he must have a sense of humor. I love to laugh, and laughter is the best therapy. We must be able to have fun in this life. Serving others is very important to me, so I want a guy who is willing to serve others, as well. In the Bible, it tells us how we need to be the hands and feet of Jesus.


What are your deal breakers?

My first deal breaker is he must have a full-time job and able to support himself. Also, that he is not in trouble with the law and no drugs.


Describe your dream first date.

My dream date would be going to dinner at a small, quiet restaurant. Then after dinner going for a walk in a park somewhere to enjoy the nature and the stars up in the sky. After we’re done walking, find a bench to sit and talk to each other.




What’s your favorite romantic comedy and why?

My favorite romantic comedy is “The Holiday.” I think the movie has great actors and actresses in it. It’s so funny because the two women (played by Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz) go to opposite sides of the world to get away from men. Lo and behold, that’s a good plan, but they both find two decent men on their adventure.
