Firstly I'm looking for a long term relationship that hopefully leads to marriage and not looking for dating around or dating multiple people at the same time. I'm open to new friends but nothing in between, also open to long distance relationship as long as there is an eventual possibility of relocation.I'm very friendly, easy going, go with the flow, somewhat funny, very social type of person and like making new friends. To me life is all about loving others and being loved and mutual honesty, trust, courtesy, respect is a must in every relationship. I don't play games, say what I mean, and do what I say. I'm not looking for playing typical dating games, and don't do well with people who play games or are manipulative. I have zero street smartness and stay away from people who are overly clever or manipulative. I'm very liberal and really don't care about money or material things. For me things are for people and not the other way around.
I love traveling, food, meeting new people, reading, snow boarding, cycling, music, movies, art and have many more interests. Actually I can have fun doing anything with the right company; for me company is more important than the activity. I have huge interest in poetry, history, and philosophy and generally like to read books that have strong moral message and can make me a better person.I'm a founder and CTO of a startup company based out of California and work from home. Also these days I'm working as a consultant for a large bank and travel to Cleveland and Pittsburgh often. My plan is to sell the company in next few years and then concentrate on helping people who really need help. I'm planning to start a company, like Toms shoes, that will be focused on creating economic opportunity for the poor, here in the States as well as in Pakistan. At this point I don't know how I'm going to do it but I do know my goal.
I'm actually half Pakistani and half Indian, best of both worlds :), but grew up in Middle East. Moved to Pakistan in 1985 and after a six months stint in UAE moved to States in 1997. I have lived in New York, Maryland, Chicago, Sacramento, San Diego (best place ever) before moving to Columbus. I have been here since 2006 and Ohio is home now. I'm looking for a best friend, a friend that is independent, good person, loving, caring, intelligent, outgoing, funny, and would love me for me and not what I have or can do for her.Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.'

That's all folks! Anything else, please free to ask.
