Looking for soulmate text

English my second language so let me know what i can improve about my wording.

Need to translate following into Spanish so it does not sound too offensive or out of line
Quote:
Decent hard working European man 34yo, do not smoke or drink
wants to build a family based on traditional Cristian values with
devout, family oriented women 18-25yo.

If you know someone who might be interested give this card to her.

We are not a free translation service. We're a community of language learners. Welcome to the forums!

I suppose you're interested in learning Spanish, else you wouldn't consider printing cards in Spanish hoping to incite a relationship with someone who can read the card.
If you'd be willing to provide us with your own Spanish translation of the English text, we can point out where improvements can be made.

I used Rosetta Stone to learn Spanish about year ago, but i have no practice because meeting someone in Los Angeles difficult so i forgot everything.



How about this?

Good job!
Just a few changes needed.

"con un devoto, Mujer" needs no comma, no capitalization, and needs to use an adjective, instead of a noun, and it needs to agree in gender with a female it defines.
", 18-25" needs no comma and could use the preposition 'de'.
"Si conoces" should be 'si se conoce'.
"estar interesado" needs to agree in gender with a female.
