I'm a level-headed yet fun-loving guy who's outgoing, open-minded and well spoken.
Personality wise, people have described me as a patient, affable, extroverted, easy going, and relatively open-minded individual.
Although I never shy away from social gatherings, I also like spending time delving into creative hobbies or a good book. I absolutely love conversation, especially talking about positive, optimistic things, and I do believe I'm a good listener because I try to listen twice as much as I speak.
I also try to be aware of what I communicate and how I communicate it, and am not afraid to admit my faults.

I have an eclectic taste in music. I usually listen to Hip Hop, R & B, Rock, House, Jazz, Punjabi and Hindi music. But I also love listening to Classical music when the mood suits me. I don't mind country music either, as long as it's not trashy, overly patriotic garbage.

My desire to give back to the community
My good health
My active imagination
This kind of self-honesty has been a positive guiding force in my life that has helped me get along with most people, except those who try to pass off their belief in God or lack thereof as objective truths.
I read a story once about a couple renewing their vows on their 60th anniversary. Asked about the secret to their long and happy marriage, the husband said, "I gave her everything she ever asked for..." The wife's response was "I never asked for more than he could give."
Hoping to find a woman who shares the same outlook and interests.
