My ex and I are still very close friends. She's a great mom and will always be a part of my life, because she’ll always be a part of my daughter’s life. A few years ago she had an epiphany and decided she couldn't be truly happy if she wasn't in a relationship with another woman. Sure it sucked at the time, but now I’m happily looking for my second chance at happiness. And hey, I managed to keep a lesbian conflicted about her sexuality for 9 years! Obviously, if any of that is an issue for you, then we won’t be a match. She’s my daughter’s mother and I won’t have intolerance in my daughter’s life.
I happen to have been born in Hong Kong. My parents were living there at the time. I have lived in many places throughout my life. SE Asia, Europe, and east coast US during my primary school years. Home is now Colorado. At least for the next 10 years or so. Travel is always on option. I’m good at it and a great travel partner whether you’re an old pro too or just dipping your toes into new places for the first time.
I speak English and Swedish fluently (I’m half Swedish) and can get by in a few more without too much embarrassment.
I’m well educated. Dual undergrad degree in Geography and Environmental Resource Planning from CU-Boulder, and an MBA from the Rotterdam School of Management in the Netherlands. It was a full time international program. Lots of fun. I had with classmates from 42 different countries. I now literally have friends all over the world. We can play a game where you name a country, I'll tell you about the friends I have there or near there!
Continuous education is important to me personally and professionally. After Grad school, I have gotten my PMP and Scrum Master certifications. Essentially, I am very hire-able. Especially in the IT management arena.
Since many of you list your Myers-Briggs personality type, I figure it's important to you. I'm an ENFJ.
I’m pretty good at cracking people up. My daughter has often said I’m the funniest person she knows. Clearly that is pretty high praise.She’s got to know a couple hundred (or at least dozen) people…
I like to be flirty with the person I'm in a relationship with. I like showing my affection and will do it often.
What I'm looking for: She fully owns her inner nerd. She's compassionate and giving. She's physically active and takes care of herself. She understands that "smart" = "sexy". She's a good mom (to her/our kids not me). She's not shy to try new things and go to new places, but also values quiet time enjoying each other’s company and staying in for a night. I am very affectionate and thoughtful and am looking for someone who shares those qualities.
If I think you’d also impress my daughter, then you’ll earn extra points from me too! I don't think a "match" can be made just by looking at profiles online. I want to meet you and have a real conversation at a pub or restaurant. A date to me involves actually interacting with each other, not just being at the same place at the same time.
