I think of myself as a global nomad really. Eclectic background – born in Asia, educated in the UK and Australia, work between continents, dodgy clear cut accent, multilingual and multifaceted. Travel is a constant with me, professionally – attached to an international conglomerate working in a tough industry and personally, with family strewn across the globe.
Have and tend to devote (too much) time to both my educational pursuits (ugh done now!) and professional career – one greasy rung at a time. While fruitful, it sadly hasn't left time for much else. Or as Lennon put it; life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.
Personality wise, the good, bad, ugly of it: Great sense of humour, making others laugh (OMG you are so funny...for a woman! Erm quiteee..) remain passionate about the issues that matter most, am wickedly sarcastic, sassy and can exasperate the calmest of individuals. I’m also serious, quiet, understanding, calm, intelligent, intense, loyal, passionate and have a temper when riled!
I’m action oriented, and while I like to get things done quickly, I like them done well. I almost always plan things out. I love new experiences, soaking up the different and diverse, and appreciate anything that expands my mind. I also love to be challenged thought for thought as I find intense in-depth conversation sexy, from politics to satire, to why I find Eric Cartman a dreamboat.
My idea of a successful relationship is ultimately where a fantastic solid friendship begins. That coupled with a good balance of independence, chemistry (mental and physical), clear expectations, and that elusive” IT “factor clinches the deal.
~~UPDATE: Apologies if you write and I don’t reply. Please try again as am currently re-locating for work purposes hence when I do check OK it’s the mobile version and messages tend to slip through the cracks.
