Hello! After having dedicated myself to some long relationships and to my career, I finally feel like sharing my life with someone who, just like me, values respect, loyalty, caring, mutual dedication and Christian values, which unfortunately, seem to be so old-fashioned to most people nowadays . . . As a brazilian woman who has been teaching English to teens and adults for over 20 years, I've had wonderful opportunities to learn more about other cultures and, although I love my dear country Brazil, I believe that true love and good friends can be found anywhere, as there are good people all over the world! I have a wonderful family: a sis, a brother, four adorable adult nephews and only my mom (we still live together) . My dad passed away when I was 6, but mom did her best and our harmonious family life is really due to her . I trully love babies, pets (cats and dogs) , good movies and magazines, music, travelling, decoration, volunteering and people say I'm a good cook ! So, where are you, who seeks what I have to offer, with all my heart ? Maybe we can be happy together, living a "friends first" relationship to see what affinities we have. Let's "discover" each other's country . There's a wonderful world out there to be enjoyed in a good companion ( including God, of course !!) I'll be waiting for your lovely message, in case you want to know more about me !
