My self-summary
I'm a little shy, even with a background in martial arts. I kind of have a broad background: comic books, novels, movies, traveling, etc. I love learning new things (still "trying" to do origami, improve my French) and so forth. Diversity is a great thing, and I'm open and love meeting new people.

Traveling interest is a huge plus for me, and I enjoy hearing stories about it. Outgoing people are fun, and it's nice to do something spontaneous now and then rather than plan everything.

I'd love to make some new friends, possibly find a relationship.

I am Friendly, Adventurous, and Intelligent
