More About Me

Hi, my name is Loretta. I am an easy-going, very affectionate, romantic, loving, loyal, kind Christian woman with a huge heart and gentle spirit, as well as a great sense of humor. It's a great pleasure to make others laugh. I like seeing the joy on a person's face from just simply talking to them and listening. There isn't anything I won't do for my family and friends. I'm a momma cub when it comes to that. I'm a cuddle bunny looking for my teddy bear. Romance is big with me. (The sappier the I'm just saying you can never get or give too much love, (hugs, kisses) right?! True intimacy on all levels of mind, body, spirit and soul is ideal. What else can I share? Well, I am very much a girly girl. Love getting my hair and nails done. I feel appearance is important so it is rare to see me without my make-up and hair done. My fashion sense is trendy. This is not to say that if we are at the house lounging I can just be natural. Also, dad did train me to change the car oil & antifreeze, which I check often. I do my own lawn work. So as you can see I do have many sides.

I am interested in

What I am Looking for  the possibility of marriage

The person I am looking for:

I am looking for my best friend, soul mate and a true GENTLEMAN. Race is not an issue for me. Someone who is loving, kind, understanding, and did I mention passionate/affectionate! I am not looking to change anyone just as I don't want to be changed. At this point in my life I want someone who knows exactly what he wants and isn't afraid to step out in faith and grab it. I am not interested in any players or drama! I am looking for a man who places God number one in his life. Spiritual happiness is very important. I love God with all of my heart and soul and I desire that same quality in my future mate. Could there be any better closeness as a couple?

About my faith life

My walk with the Lord has gotten stronger with each passing decade. I always want to be Christ like in my actions and be in a continual conversation with Him that never ends. I find myself even seeking His guidance as I fill out this profile. I took myself off the dating scene for the past 3-4 yrs to just wait on the Lord. He has humbled me and taught me some huge valuable lessons. Here is one I would like to share. Talk, listen and compromise. Then more talking, listening and compromising. Laughter is a great medicine! Remember looks fade, skin wrinkles, hair grays and sight fails but your true essence, your spirit never dies. Stay true to God, your heart and soul and everything else will fall into place. I believe praying together as a couple strengthens your relationship as well. I am very active in my church. I am involved with women's ministry & children's ministry. I am also an usher, one of the editors of our face book page and I decorate as needed. My two favorite scriptures are John 3:16 & Phil 4:13.

My plans for the next 5 years and life goals

At this point in my life and after some hard lessons along the way, I have decided to just leave it all in God's hands. Where He leads I will follow. What He wants I will do.
