Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would like a woman who has had her metal tested through the
challenges of life, but is not cynical or jaded; someone who can
still hope for the best but knows how to deal with the worst. I
want a woman who has stared down her own demons and is at peace
with the imperfections and scars that make her unique, resilient,
and stronger for having made it through her darkest hour. I need
someone who has struggled and overcome, as this usually leaves her
with a grounded perspective and compassion for others.
I am by nature an introvert and can be shy at first until I get to
know you. I also find it weird to just walk up to someone when
she's with her friends and to try to strike up a meaningful
conversation. Small talk is not my strong suit, but I thrive on
more intellectual topics. So, this seems to make more sense to try
to find her this way. For those that know, I'm an INTJ who is
looking for someone like me. Once I trust you, my loyalty is
unending. Honesty to myself and to others is my most valued virtue.
I am an attentive and devoted lover, and I appreciate when I
receive what I give in a relationship. Love to me is sacred, so I
do not play games. You will always know what I mean and where we
stand with each other.
I was born in the Philippines but have lived all but 14 months of
my life in the US. 23 years in MD and 19 in AZ. Yes, English is my
I love going to events and doing things with my partner, but also
need some alone time to recharge. I'm an interesting mix of serious
and silly. I aspire to love whole heartedly but am very selective
about who I associate with. I am easily amused, but not easily
impressed. I am looking for an equal, so everything I want from my
partner is something I bring to the equation.
Characteristics that I am looking for in a woman. She:
-can put me in check without being domineering.
-knows what she likes and doesn't have to make that into what I
-has her career and earned it on her own.
-should also take care of herself. (No smoking, illegal drugs, or
-has her own car, place, money, job, and life.
-doesn't need a partner, but wants one. (Appreciative and possibly
-is authentic, but also hast tact on when to be appropriately
-loves dogs and is a responsible owner who provides
-practices what she preaches, especially when it's not easy.
Here are my deal breakers:
Obesity: It's a symptom of deeper issues.
Drug abuse: Never have been into it, and not curious about trying
Avoidance: If you run from your issues or are not open to learning
if you have any issues, then we will not get along because I will
Passivity: If you don't like conflict and try to please people just
because it's easier, then I would run you over and lose respect for
Cats: I'm allergic.
Extremism: If you are an extremist of any sort and can't see how
another perspective may also be valid, then we will frustrate each
other. I like balanced perspectives.

Books - I'm not a big reader, but I like for people to tell me
about books. My theory is that one can only retain a maximum of 70%
of what one reads, so getting someone to tell me about a book
accomplishes getting the gist of the story, but only much faster.
Plus, it is an interactive process rather than an independent

Breakfast Club, Seven, Seven Psychopaths, and Cloud Atlas
