My friends would describe me as intelligent, well rounded, cultured, sensitive, confident and easy going. I can not and will not walk through the door before you. Yes, I am chivalrous.
I cook a mean Thai or Indian chicken curry !
I'm an avid traveler & have been to and lived in some fantastic places. I'm always planning a trip somewhere. I work and play hard, enjoy what i do & am very ambitious. Not to the extent that I forget to live my life though.
I do look after myself, exercise & eat well. I'm not into fast food, with the exception of 1 or 2 Taco Bell cravings a year !
In my down time, you'll find me out with friends, dancing, cooking an extravagant meal, drinking a nice red, reading, watching TV/Movies, or playing pool. I'm spontaneous, I might ask you to pack a bag on short notice and whisk you away on a last minute getaway or road trip ! (Don't worry, I'll tell you what kind of shoes to pack)
I love to entertain, definitely a people person, not shy at all, fun, down to earth & get along with everyone. I am very close to my family & have amazing friends, I'm so grateful for all of them.
I'm a busy professional with an active social life. I'd much rather meet in person or talk on the phone. I think it's a better way of getting to know someone & a lot more real. I'd much rather be charmed by you in person than make assumptions about you online.
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for,
And if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love,
For your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow,
If you have been opened by life's betrayals or
Have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain!
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own;
If you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you
To the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful,
Be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself,
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
I want to know if you can see beauty
Even when it is not pretty every day,
And if you can source your life from God's presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine,
And still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, "Yes!"
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have,
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair,
Weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done for the children.
It doesn't interest me who you are, how you came here,
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the Fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away,
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, And if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
