I am a strong Christian, an ambitious business woman, and I love to have a good time. I am loyal, sincere, and genuine. I am compassionate and seek to make others happy (sometimes too much) . I love to laugh, and enjoy being around people thathave a good time too. When I am in pursuit of something, I tend to go all out. By nature, I am a very competitive person, and I enjoy taking home the prize. When I commit to someone (family, friend, or partner) , they can feel my protection on all levels. If you are an important part of my life, I will be there to back you up and defend you whenever necessary. I naturally want to be respected. In fact, it may be more important to me to be respected than loved. I also need for my partner to be worthy (and if needs be, demanding) of my respect. How can you love what you can't respect? I appreciate my partner more if he demands my respect than simply allows me free license to walk all over him. I feel I am at my best when I am able to accomplish various goals. It is important that I find someone who allows me the time and the space that I need to continue to be productive and do what I do best. With that said, I have learned to value myself for who I am rather than what I can do. I understand that I am a very results-oriented person, but I value emotional closeness as well. I want to find someone with whom I am able to open my heart to and be vulnerable.
