Hello there! Somehow I get the sneaking suspicion that men are afraid of me here! I seem to get messages from lots of people who live a world away, but rarely from guys here in Finland. Why is that, fellas? I am a nice lady, so have no fear. :-) As for others, please just know that I have set a filter for my messages, that way I don't get bombarded with messages from people oceans away. I am sure you're lovely, oh men residing oceans away, but you aren't for me. I am looking for someone closer.
Another fact about me that hopefully isn't too alarming: I am a single mom. I have the best, sweetest little boy in the entire world. What's not to love about that? Basically, I am here because I would like to see what else is out there. Perhaps it is time to start dating again.
I speak Russian, a tiiiiiiny bit of Finnish (muuta se on hyvin vaikea!!!), some Kazakh and Georgian, and a bit of Azeri. I hope to work for the State Department one day. Other than that, I love to cook, sing, listen to music, dance, read, and play with my son! I am in a blues-type duo, so singing and writing music is my cup of tea. Sure would love to meet someone with whom I could make music.
In terms of what I am looking for, I suppose it depends on the guy. It would be great to find something lasting, but it all has to begin somewhere...you know, with coffee, dinner and a movie, something like that.
What I’m doing with my life
Being awesome, working on my doctoral dissertation (will it ever end?!?!?!...just kidding, it will definitely end), and being optimistic about the future.
I’m really good at
Learning different languages, school in general, and cooking. :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
That's a toughy. I love Russian lit, therefore some of my favorite
books are: Master and Margarita, Anna Karenina, Crime and
Punishment, We, A Hero of Our Time, and so on and so forth. I love
romantic comedies, no matter how stereotypical that sounds. I also
like dramas that have something to do with history. My favorite
show is True Blood, and I love ethnic food (Chinese, Greek,
Turkish...you name it).
The six things I could never do without
1.) My son
2.) My parents
3.) Love and affection
4.) A dream to fulfill
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many things I need to accomplish before the night is over!
There are simply too few hours in a day!
On a typical Friday night I am
Putting my son to bed and starting to wind down. I might have a
glass of wine and watch a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nice try. ;-)
You should message me if
If you're a good, honest guy with a good sense of humor and a penchant for romance.
