The one thing I am passionate about...
Love my family (including my cats) and friends and enjoy their love; enjoy and protect the nature; pursue knowledge and wisdom and achieve personal goals; make the world a better place by being a kind, honest, and responsible person; last but not least, I like being my true self. I'm not particularly religious but I do appreciate many principles with Buddhism and Christianity.
I typically spend my leisure time
Cleaning, gardening, cooking, sleeping; spending time with family and friends; watching movies / shows (from great artistic movies,to fun sitcoms); reading; exercising - I am pretty good at Pingpong; BA in Advertising,I enjoyed drawing, watercolor, photography classes in college, hope could practice more; trying to learn guitar lately and always wish my hands are bigger. Also, I volunteer about 3 hours a week for a cat rescue group...Leisure time is never enough. Lately I began to spend time searching for a new job as my current one keeps me too busy and ideally I hope to move to a warmer place soon.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for somebody who has a big heart, is intelligent, responsible, easy-going, supportive, and happy. I manage my life almost perfectly fine but I look forward to finding a best friend who shares similar values, appreciates and cares about me for who I am, and always be truthful to me. I need to feel comfortable with and truly admire him, even that it's only natural that we may have many differences. Each of us should be an individual who loves life and does not depent happiness on others, however our relationship makes our lives more fulfilled.
The first thing people notice about me
The last book I read and enjoyed
I strongly recommend "Letters to My Son - A Father's Wisdom on Manhood, Life, and Love" by Kent Nerburn to everyone - men and women. The essays covered many serious topics in life such as Work, Wealth, Love, Sex, Marriage, the Spiritual Journey, Travel, Art, Death...very thoughtful, inspiring, yet pleasant to read. Let me quote:"It is a mystery why we fall in love...love is something more than the sum of the interests and attractions and commonalities that two people share...the coming of love must be taken as an unfathomable gift that cannot be questioned in its ways...Remember that you don't choose love. Love chooses you."
The three things which I am most thankful for
- People in my life: kind and intelligent parents (Dad was my Math teacher in high school, mom began to read poems to me when I was 3); two older brothers; friends and mentors.
- My health.
- My brain, heart, and soul, which enable me to fully appreciate life.

A little more about me
I can't date anyone who is allergic to cats. I love cats and currently live with three (probably won't adopt more). I love all other animals and children too. Another thing is that I received my MBA degree 3 years ago, although it's not a must that my ideal partner also has a master degree. I don't mind living in Buffalo but I do prefer a warmer place.
