To give you an idea of how I live my life, my major motivation is in being self-aware, self-accepting, rationally understanding reality (heavy, I know!), and having close connection in my relationships. This looks likes journaling, meditating, and having friendships where we can share our emotions very openly, without judgment. When I am nourished by these supportive relationships, I like to laugh and be silly, and I also like to have deep philosophical conversations. I like to cook (especially for others), and eat well. I am working on further improving my diet, which already has been largely fresh produce and meat based, by increasingly eliminating refined sugars and fried fats (old habits die hard!). I have been getting more active lately by doing yoga, playing basketball, tennis, and swimming at the beaches around Seattle.
As far as a career goes, I am currently exploring new lines of work after not enjoying the job my academic study set me up for. I started up a house cleaning business in September, and was pleasantly surprised by how many customers I was able to get, off the bat! I am currently working on building up clientele and my reputation. Being self-employed is great!
In the future, I am interested in having a family. A wife and child(ren). I am looking for something long-term, but am patiently not looking for force anything to work. Either it works or it doesn’t, but my goal is to find someone who I want to spend my life with.
In a partner, I am looking for someone who has a good deal of self-awareness. I am very psychologically deep and want to share this pursuit with my partner. I am looking for warmth and empathy, and a capacity to stay in the moment during conflict and talk it through. Someone who strives to live with integrity; “practicing what they preach”. I am looking for a partner who takes their physical health seriously as well. I am no ascetic, but I try to maintain a healthy physique through healthy diet and moderate exercise. I am looking for a partner who wants a child; I am not ready to do so now, but expect it would be a deeply enjoyable to be a good father. I am sure there is more I could say, but for the sake of brevity, I’ll leave it there.
I look forward to hearing from you!
PS- if we hit it off, I would really like to take dance lessons; I think Swing would be a fun place to start:) I used to go out dancing during college and found it a real blast!
