Recently I came across a article that I very much identify with, with a few small exceptions :
In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the question:
"What kind of man are you looking for?" She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye & asking "Do you really want to know?" Reluctantly, he said, "Yes." She began to expound, " As a woman in this day & age, I am in a position to ask a man what you can do for me that I can't do for myself? I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man... or woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, "What can you bring to the table?" The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money. She quickly corrected his thought and stated, "I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for excellence in every aspect of his life." He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, & asked her to explain. She said "I need someone who is striving for excellence mentally because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don't need a simple-minded man. I need someone who is striving for excellence spiritually because I don't need to be unequally yolked..... believers mixed with nonbelievers is a recipe for disaster. I need a man who is striving for excellence financially because I don't need a financial burden. I need someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded. I need someone who has integrity in dealing with relationships. Lies and game-playing are not my idea of a strong man. I need a man who is family-oriented. One who can be the leader, priest and provider to the lives entrusted to him by god. I need someone whom I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who isn't taking care of his business. I have no problem being submissive... he just has to be worthy. And by the way I am not looking for him... He will find me. He will recognize himself in me. He may not be able to explain the connection, but he will always be drawn to me. God made woman to be a help-mate for man. I can't help a man if he can't help himself."
When she finished her spill, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said "You are asking a lot." She replied "I'm worth a lot."
Yes, my profile is quite long, but I'd rather put more out there than less because that way you know roughly what you would be getting. I want to be with someone who enjoys talking and listening and learning and if he can't get through reading my entire 12 page profile then he is probably not going to be able to handle our 12 hour debates (just kidding ! Not quite 12 hours and not quite 12 pages either:P) If this is the case then we are obviously not right for each other and I will bid you much luck to find your match.
I love science especially biology !! Love love love it !!
Biology is soo incredible and I love learning more and more every day. I am an information sponge and really need to have a partener that is like-minded in this way. Someone who loves to share his ideas and passions, whom I can learn from and who can also learn from me. I am reading a phenominal book right now about Neuroplasticity that gets me so excited with each page I read that I wish that I had a special someone to share it with. Someone who would be equally as excited about it as I am, or just excited for me :) .
As long as i am learning new things everyday then I am happy.
The people in my life are very important to me. I am lucky enough to have grown up in an amazing family, and it is important to me that you value family as much as I do. That said I also know that everyone's family dynamics are different, and nothing is perfect. Though we used to fight like cats and dogs as kids, my brother is today one of my best friends and I am so grateful for that.
I am an active person who loves almost any outdoor activity. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, and much more. I am a singer and am looking forward to getting back into it here in Vancouver.
If you have ever seen the movie "Pay it Forward" Its something that is very important in my life. It only takes one smile to change a persons life.
I love to get dressed up to go out on the town, but I can also rough it just like one of the boys. :)
I am looking for someone who has similar interests. Someone to teach as well as to learn from, that would like to join me at exploring this awesome concept called life.
If I hadn't taken the path I have I wouldn't have the degree of knowledge and awareness as well as passion for the field I am in now. Right now I work in Emergency healthcare and am in the processes of stepping up the ladder to get my Bachelors Degree as a Registered Nurse, then finally specializing in Trauma or Neuroscience.
My inspirations :
Ahmed ..... - An Amazing 24 year old man from Pakistan who`s entire family was wiped out by a bomb in 2009. He travelled on foot consuming nothing but leaves and water until he reached Italy (Where I met him). A brilliant man who is working on getting a PHD so that he may stay and contribute to his new country, and as well is determined to one day help the people of his homeland. There is so much more I could say about him that cannot be put into words. I am just so incredibly grateful for the one day that I spent with him, that has touched and changed my life.
Dr Hunter (Patch) Adams - Inspires the way I treat my patients everyday. Treating a patients " spirit " is just as important as treating the illness. He takes a holistic approach to treating his patients. Amazing man and doctor !
My Mother - inspires me everyday to "Live" life enjoy it fully and work hard to reach the stars. She has a brilliant mind and creative spirit which I admired even as a little girl.
My father - For his strength and determination to succeed.
The many patients I see everyday - that inspire me to want to be the best I can be in my field. To them for reminding me everyday how lucky I am for all I have. To be grateful , and mindful of every day.
To all the people i've met along the way.
The relationships I have had and continue to create in order to create me. That keep me somewhat conscious in this world instead of as a drone unconscious and unaware of life passing by.

I am somewhat of a health nut (if you've seen the things I have seen in the ER, you would too 😜) I consider myself pretty well educated as far a nutrition goes. I have a lot of goals in my life and prefer to feed my body well. I would like a partner who treats his body well in this way too.
I eat mostly vegan at home, but I am not so strict that I won't enjoy meat and delicious less-than-healthy food when I am out for dinner, or visit friends/family.
I love food except for Liver :S LOL
I am not a picky eater other than for health reasons and enjoy trying all kinds of food !!
