The one thing I am passionate about...
having a strong family, helping and inspiring others, music, singing, dancing, sports (watching/playing), international travel, languages, cooking, arts n crafts, being an animal lover, and marathon running/walking for a cause...
I typically spend my leisure time
spending time talking and laughing with friends and family, traveling, listening to music or singing, reading a good book, or watching movies, jogging on nearby trails or near the water...
The most influential person in my life has been
Generosity, passion, mutual respect, and a sense of adventure in life... A great sense of humor is also very important to me. I'm looking for someone that I would be proud to share my life with and who can accept me just as I am.
The first thing people notice about me
My voice, smile, passion, and creative spirit/energy...
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World; Appeals to my love of travel and cultures. Loved how grumpy (and funny) the writer is throughout his journey. The Ramen King and I: How the Inventor of Instant Noodles Fixed My Love Life, is also a very funny book. It's a bit like "Bridget Jones Diary" for men... ;)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and close friends are amazing and very supportive...
- My work gives me an opportunity to help others on a daily basis...
- My background, life experiences, and travels have given me a chance to see and appreciate many beautiful things in my life...
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Because I've lived all over the US and Asia - I've had an amazing opportunity to appreciate many different environments and cultures. So, I'm just as comfortable at a tail-gate party with fellow U of Michigan alums (Go Blue!) as I am bargaining in some open market in S. Korea for organic greens to put in the dinner stew. I'd love to meet others who have a similar sense of adventure and openness to new things and places...
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Funny, Sweet, Warm
A little more about me
I've never really gone on blind dates and I'm still trying to figure out what online dating is all about and whether it's for me or not... I'm not interested in people who play games - just in meeting a good person who is mature and has a positive outlook on life... Life is too short to play games, in my opinion, so honesty is very important to me...
