Organized, Patient, And Empathetic

“Organized, patient and empathetic at heart with good communication command respect for me.”

Her Accountability And Ability To Handle Stress

“If she is accountable and how she handles stress. Some people brush it off like it’s a breeze in the wind and others break down and blame others and that is lame.”

The Way She Carries Herself

"A woman gains my respect when her social media lacks promiscuous photos. It's refreshing to see modesty in a world where attention-seeking selfies are the norm."

Her Basic Humanity

“Her basic humanity, in general, is enough for me to respect her.”

Happy In Her Own Skin
