My ideal mate is someone I can depend on and who will be there for me when I need him. I can take care of myself, but I would like to share my life with someone, and I am commited to do the same for him. I am very out going and love to laugh. I've learned the hard way honesty is best and it better to be upfront. I am a person who appreciates life's blessings and encourages others likewise -- and often crack up my friends or students in the process.
