This 40ish year old African American female enjoys singing, meeting new people, traveling, reading, paricipating in church activities, working out, movies, various types of music, watching most sports on TV or going to live activities, plays, evening walks, politics, civic/community activities, fixing candlelight dinners, dining out, working on the computer, and playing the piano a little. I am also a true romantic. I believe that you must have a strong friendship for any relationship to last. When you enter a committed relationship, if things get bad, at least you have the friendship to keep you together. Understanding is the best thing between two people, then comes trust/love/respect, etc.
