My self-summary
I'm looking for fun dates to balance out work.

I enjoy interesting dates, so at least we had fun if we part ways after. I've done marketing before, so I'm not shy, nor awkward. I'm not one to ask easy questions either.

I'm passionate about foreign policy, so I finished a Masters in reading papers on it, all day every day. My other passions are History & animals.

I enjoy board games, museum exhibits, & stand-up comedy shows. I also live alone & enjoy cooking.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in government. Before this, I was an Analyst with the Govt of Ontario & I finished my Masters. Goal: Read news in Chinese in 3 years.

My career ambition is policy analyst on foreign policy/intl development in 5-7 yrs. I've
- Volunteered overseas & built a playground
- Tried learning several languages besides French
- Managed the marketing for a business
- Slaved away at an internship & two co-ops (federal govt & NGO)
- Won a glaring contest vs a pickpocket in Paris
I’m really good at
- Being biased towards women & *apparently* a bit unfair to guys. Now, is that chivalry or gender discrimination? You tell me. =P
- Browsing profile pics just for the dogs. Click!
- Organizing fun activities
- Analytical work. Policy & socio-economic
- Abstaining from video games. Burying my inner "ruthless warlord."
The first things people usually notice about me
- I'm attentive & maintain healthy eye contact in conversation
- I can probably finish your food too!
- I'm diligent with please & thank you
- Polos & dress shirts
- No rips, prints, hoodies, or caps
- I look a bit Korean, but I'm not. Guess!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books should be intriguing, lest I fall asleep:
- Epic series like The Wheel of Time
- Sci-fi short stories set in dystopian futures
- History & International Affairs books

Movies. Original & thought-provoking pls:
- Blood Diamond, Wicker Park, District 9, Jeu d'enfants, Kate and Leopold, Inception, The Prestige, Deja-Vu, Anonymous, Marley & Me

To be at peace with the universe, I need:
- Meat, veggies & fruit everyday!
- Giant bowls of ramen, beef fried noodles, original bubble tea, spicy salmon sushi, strawberry milkshake, strawberry shortcake, sea salt & vinegar Ms. Vicky's

Music:
- Smooth '90s & '00s RnB. Keane, old Maroon 5, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Mariah Carey, Jay Chou. No hard rap or screaming, pls.
The six things I could never do without
- My friends who plan great activities with me
- My car & its gps for the freedom they afford
- Good hygiene; A sink before & after meals
- The face lotion I've used for the past 15 years
- Internet for my guilty pleasures. You thought "porn," didn't you!
- A pet who'll always be happy to see me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Why people bother lying in profiles
- How to train my cat, Jerkwad the Destroyer
- When I can raise service dogs like my uncle!
- Where! Where can I eat amazing ramen?
On a typical Friday night I am
- Cooking something delicious (hopefully) =P
- Movie night or board game night
- Otherwise, maybe exercising. I don't particularly like to, but discipline and health! I plan to live a while
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was scared of furbies as a child. Now they've evolved: They blink & dance. Soon, terminator furbies.
You should message me if
You have passion or ambition.
You have interesting life stories.
You're tired of simple, stupid messages.
You're interested in the why, not just the what.
You'd like a dessert date. Macarons or waffles.

I keep an excel list of activities & I'm always looking to add to it.
