In most of my life I am very confident in myself and my abilities, but I am quite shy when it comes to a woman I am interested in which has resulted in spectacularly funny (in retrospect) foul ups when trying to make a move. I am getting better, though I still tend to babble when I am nervous
Amongst my friends I am known for my honesty and kindness (seriously...my best friend who is super critical, snooped into my profile and told me she was impressed with how honest I was). Indeed, if I try to be a jerk my friends will often laugh and assume I am goofing off and tease me. That said I am also quite absent minded, so those who do not know me so well might think I am being a jerk....when in reality I am lost in thought. In my life I treat everyone (regardless of race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender) as an equal.....because they ARE!
I am well travelled (lived, worked and travelled in the Middle East and South East Asia), I am well educated (BA at UVic and MA at UBC), I am a great cook (especially if you like Thai food), love outdoors sports (kayaking, hiking, swimming and before Uni I was a sponsored mnt. bike racer) I love yoga and Martial arts.
