From my daughter -
"I love comedy, cooking, animals and my family (not necessarily in that order :) ). Music and honest conversation are cathartic to me. Excessive judgement and the inability to hear someone else's point of view are my biggest pet peeves. I am outgoing and caring. Being in touch with a genuine group of friends is important to me. I derive purpose and pleasure from my career in financial services, and expect to continue working.
I look to be independent, stay spiritual, and help people throughout my life. I'd like a family that is loving, accepting and supportive of one another."
