I always believed that to look forward to life, you have to live in the present. As the poet Horace said: "carpe diem". Heck, you can even put Drake on blast and say "YOLO". Not that I say that line at all, but you get my drift. I actually rather prefer Gandhi's version: "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
I value intelligence quite a bit. I've always found that as a turn-on for females. You don't need a PhD to be intelligent, as long as you contribute and find things interesting, you're smart in my book. I'm a loyal and compassionate person who knows how to treat a lady right. I much prefer someone who is also looking for long term.
Oh, and here's one thing I found that's quite neat. Activities-wise, I'm highly spontaneous. I was once in Hong Kong for a month and in the middle of my vacation, I thought to myself: "Hey, it's February. I would love to see snow and go skiing." The next day, I hopped on a flight to South Korea for a week to ski. I also bought a tv for my room the day I found out there was a show on television based on a famous graphic novel: The Walking Dead.
The closest things to me are my family and friends. I'm an animal lover and I have an awesome Shetland Sheepdog named Kuma. Why did I name him bear? Perhaps, you'll find out, I can't let too much info about me out there.
So, like I've said earlier, if you're a happy, positive person and my spontaneity doesn't scare you off, then perhaps we can get to know each other more
