I am positive and sunny girl. I’ve learnt that people do not care about feelings of others but it has not changed me. I love the sun and the sea. I am like Aphrodite who was born in the sea as I feel harmony when I am near the water whatever it is. But I do not pretend to be a Goddess of beauty like her. I am realist) I love the nature, walking and hiking. Active lifestyle is something that allows me feeling life fully. I have romantic soul but there is nobody by my side to show affection to. Somehow men who I meet in my life do not care so much about feelings and do not look deep inside. Maybe I meet the wrong men, maybe men in my country are too much spoiled with beautiful women around and take it for granted. I believe love is two-way path where both, man and woman, do their best to make each other happy.
Ideal man?No,I know that there are no perfect people. I don't like to lie and I feel when others do. I try not to be late and I hate when others don't come on time. I prefer to associate with clever and polite people.You need to be yourself,not to hide your desires and not to throw words to the wind.I value honesty and loyalty. Then we can really take a step towards each other.
