My self-summary
A buddist goes to a hot-dog stand and says: "Make me one with everything."

Now that I have your attention, please read this section and don’t be intimidated by the lengthy profile. I type fast and have a lot to say.
2+2=fish, 3+3=8, 7+7=triangle. Does this make sense?

Ladies, Let me leak some secrets out. Guys may or may not admit it. But it’s true. We all like to hold our girl-friend’s hand in public or in private. We all like a girl-friend who encourages, supports and pushes us to be the best we can. We all like to hug and cuddle with our girl-friend. We all like the outdoors and would love to travel the world. We all want to settle down and marry the right girl.

Just for fun, I asked a number of close and trusted friends what they think my “distinct” characteristics are. In all honesty, it doesn’t matter what others think or say. It matters (and a must) that you and I have a good chemistry, respect and are loyal and honest with each other. Relationships are about finding your other halves. Non-smokers only please. Without any further ado, here is what my friends said:

HR, my very close friend (she is more like a big sister) said: “When you are happy, you smile with your eyes and you usually have a grin on your face.”

TB, my business partner (also a great friend) said: “You can grill anyone with just one look." Yea... He and I had our shares of disagreements. The funny thing is he believes he never gave me a “grilling” look before.

SV, my ex-ballroom-dance partner told me: “she needs to be able to keep up with you on the dance floor.” I love dancing. That’s how I relieve my stress.

DL, my ex-roommate at Cal said: “You are the only guy I know who cleans and shines his shoes every night.” Yes, so true.

SP, my ex-gf said: “You like flowers and you have a good taste in picking good ones.” Yes, she and I are good friends now. We both decided that we didn’t want to do a long-distance relationship.

LW, a gym buddy said: “You like the smell of lavender.” She noticed that when I made a comment to our yoga teacher.
