hate argumentative in fact I shy away from conflict. I hate negativity, am an encourager and I push my self very hard. am extremely hard on myself and am afraid of failure. I will do anything for my family and friends. am a person who gives a lot but I do not take. I love to cuddle and just hug on people. I love to laugh and smile. I also love to read and travel. I do not make the first move … because I am so shy. Communication is the number one attribute that can make or break a relationship


who I'm looking for I'm seeking a serious long term relationship and more. Someone special to capture my heart and knows how to handle it with care, I need someone who is ready to go for it despite what others might think or say, for this is one of the qualities i want in my partner, one who will cherish me and be willing to share life's greatest joys and sorrows. Someone who's willing to spoil, … pamper and love me unconditionally, whom is kind, sincere, honest, passionate, loyal, sense of humor, loving and wants a lifetime of passion.

Note - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cashier%27s_check:
"A cashier's check (or cashier's cheque) is a check guaranteed by a bank, drawn on the bank's own funds and signed by a cashier. Cashier's checks are treated as guaranteed funds because the bank, rather than the purchaser, is responsible for paying the amount. They are commonly required for real estate and brokerage transactions.

Genuine cashier's checks deposited into a bank account are usually cleared the next day. The customer can request "next-day availability" when depositing a cashier's check in person. Forged cashier's checks may bounce 2 weeks after being deposited.

When cashier’s checks took weeks to clear the banks, they were often forged in fraud schemes. The recipient of the check would deposit it in their account and withdraw funds under next-day availability, assuming it was legitimate. The bank might not be informed the check was fraudulent until, perhaps, weeks after the customer had withdrawn funds made available by the fraudulent deposit, by which time the customer would be legally liable for the cash already withdrawn."
