A few things that make me smile: people in bright colourful outfits, singing at random (sometimes inappropriate) moments, yoga, dirty and/or ridiculously cheesy jokes, knowing that something I’ve said or done has made a difference for someone, riding my bike across the city, dancing until the wee hours, surprise visits, the week(s) the lilacs are in bloom, hugs, picnics and other outdoor adventures, and getting into bed with clean sheets after a long day.
I’m looking for something real: adventure and communication and mutual support, no games, and that feeling of “I can’t wait to see them again”. I want someone with whom I can create something that makes working on the tough stuff in relationships worth it. I love my life and love being independent, and I also want to share it with someone who is as excited about life as I am. I work hard, play hard, and try very hard not to take myself too seriously.
Also, I swear I didn't come up with the nickname "Doctor Yoga" by myself (and I recognize how ridiculous it is). It was a nickname given to me by a drunk vacation buddy who couldn't remember my name, but could remember that I was both a doctoral student and a yoga teacher.
