I have roots in both the Midwest and the East Coast, so I'm comfortable eating either Chicago-style deep dish or a DC half-smoke and I'm very excited to live in Texas now. I love experiencing new cultures and I have worked in international affairs in Ohio, Indiana, DC, and Houston. I have also studied several languages, namely French, German, and Spanish. It would be nice to have someone to practice with, but by no means is this a prerequisite for a date. I have a particular affection and passion for Western Europe due to my educational and work history, but I also have a strong interest in East Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Japan and China are the first non-Western countries I plan to visit (I have already visited most of Europe and North America).
My ideal match is someone that truly enjoys life, looks forward to new challenges, and has a passion for international affairs. She should also respect my personal space and know that we don't have to be together every waking second of every day. That being said, I would always respect her opinion, even if I didn't always agree with it. She should be caring and considerate, but willing to voice her beliefs even if they weren't politically correct. Overall, she would challenge me to be a better person. If you are lucky enough to be the right girl, you will love spending time with me.
I am thoughtful, understanding, and energetic
