I ended up with two degrees, engineering and music with a minor in math thrown in for fun. Let's just say I took my share of classes while in college. As for the career, I went the route of the engineer, but found out it was the wrong one. I've also studied some second language acquisition at a graduate level, and got a TESOL certificate (to teach English). My point is that I've got a well-rounded education in various fields. I hope to get a masters someday, but haven't yet decided for sure in what. Too many things interest me.
I'm addicted to learning, but no complaints since there are worse addictions. I like watching news/political shows to keep up on current affairs. I try to be an informed citizen. I love in-depth conversations. I like intellectual interactions that open my eyes/thoughts to new perspectives. I'm happily a progressive.
I'm in the habit of recycling and try to do things that are good for the environment. I'm big on sustainability. I'm basically a vegetarian, but not hardcore. I like to be physically active. I love to play tennis, go running or work out in the gym (although to save money I just do calisthenics at home). I enjoy other sports as well. I'm trying to avoid driving (don't own a car), and instead ride my bike as often as I can or use public transit. In the past, I've taken a horseback riding class for fun, and I've gone skydiving and bungee jumping. For me, bungee jumping is way scarier, at least it was for me. But as you can see I'm willing to try things.
I'm open with my feelings and quite comfortable with expressing them, although I'm pretty mellow so not exactly a ball of emotions. I'm pretty frank most of the time. I'm also quite open with my sexuality, being comfortable reading, talking, joking about that part of me. It's a natural part of being human and a part of life I want to enjoy. I treat women as equals. I'm not big on the male/female roles our society promotes. Well, I have a lot of issues with our society, but I'll save that for later. I've had excellent past relationships and am often still friends with my ex's. I enjoy mature, healthy interactions where each person helps the other reach their potential as a human being. I am open to the idea of polyamory or polyamorous relationships. I should explain. The idea of multiple caring committed relationships doesn't scare me. I'm not the jealous type, but I'm also fine with monogamy. It all depends on how we define the relationship.
What am I looking for? Pretty much all the things I just said. I would like to meet someone roughly my age, that's educated, well-read and who has an opinion and likes to share it! Someone who isn't superficial. Someone willing to travel and live abroad, who's open with her feelings and sexuality. I'm looking for someone who cares about her health by eating well and exercising, that's very important. Someone who is active and who likes tennis, biking, running. And someone who wants to try new things (SCUBA diving, operas etc.) since I want to experience all that stuff with someone.
I am healthy, rational, and mellow.
