Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not complicated. I'm straight-forward but kind hearted. I'm
extremely mindful of myself and others.
I live a pretty active lifestyle with my two focuses being
CrossFit/olympic lifting and hot yoga. I grew up in a fairly
conservative Japanese household, and was taught that failing was
unacceptable. Through CrossFit and lifting, I'm learning that
failing is actually essential to growth; it teaches you where your
limits are, and how to perservere when you pick yourself back up.
The hot yoga has taught me how to breathe through tough times and
how to let go; that just living in the current moment is so much
more rewarding than spending time worrying about what has happened
or will happen. Sometimes you start working out because of the
physical element but over time, it becomes so much more than just
But here's an important thing also - I don't necessarily mesh well
with those who are super dedicated to the same things I'm into.
It's cool if you wanna try my stuff out but it's totally okay if it
isn't really your thing. We don't have to share everything. What's
more important is to be on a similar wavelength when it comes to
drive and ambitions and lifestyle IMO.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm busy spending my time in ways that make me happy. I work, but
it doesn't rule my life at all. I don't think being double booked
and frantically fitting too many things into one day makes you
cool. I'm trying to simplify my commitments and just do the things
that bring me joy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning. Staying focused on goals. Being independent. Staying
grounded and grateful. Understanding that everything worth having
is worth fighting for. Making time for what matters.

The best compliment I have ever gotten, from a complete stranger:
"You walk like a fighter."
I hope it's true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm starting to read more but it's a slow process. Yes, I like
music and movies. Right now, I'm in a phase of using food as fuel;
which means I'm mostly paleo but trying to learn how to fit in good
carbs. I love eating out and splurging once in a while but it
wouldn't be special if I did that all the time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
 Inhales and exhales
 My eyesight
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Being and living in the present -- or as one blog called it,
"staying where my feet are". Remembering this has made a huge
impact on my life.
Figuring out what constitutes 'an athlete' and how to become a
stronger and more confident trainer.
Why people don't fight harder for the things they want. If
something or someone is great; isn't it worth getting vulnerable
and fighting for what could be?
How people who message you here expect to hold an engaging
conversation and learn about someone else if they don't ask
questions. I ask a lot of questions. If I don't get any back, I'm
probably moving on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to yoga then maybe making dinner from scratch, or reading in
coffee shops, or taking a bath.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love this article. It describes me, quite well.
When it comes to relationships and dating, this is the best way I
can describe how I view it.
I'm competitive; and not just in my own right. I'll want you to be
great at whatever it is that you are passionate about. I'll push
you to get there; I'll be your biggest fan.
I am not 'laid back', I get motivated about things I am passionate
about. Does this mean I am an emotional, uptight mess? Absolutely
not. I've got my shit together, I get excited about life, and I
don't sit around waiting for great things to happen to me. I hope
you're the same.
I love the word 'surrender'. In society, it has always seemed to
have a negative connotation but I have never viewed it that way. To
me, it means having the strength to accept without judgement (in
body, in thoughts, in feelings, in situations, etc.). It's not easy
and I'm not great at it, but I take it a day at a time. :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You believe strongly in acceptance and understanding; that everyone
is who they are and just because they might have different beliefs,
passions, or personality traits, doesn't mean it's wrong or needs
to be changed. In fact, it doesn't. It just is.
Also, do you relate to any of these qualities?
