My self-summary
I am a temporarily-grounded world traveler, educator, and writer in search of new ideas, eclectic experiences, and dynamic interactions with everyday people. I am a bit of an "eccentric character," which is probably why I am still single.

I am also a practicing Christian. My philosophy is "Love is action," with a focus on the action part.

I have a definite academic bent, but I also have a very artistic streak - that said, I am INFJ all the way. I love getting out and doing various activities, from live theater to hiking. I also love to get outdoors when the weather permits, but I also love the rain. I am not really a "girly-girl," but I do "clean up well" after an adventure or two.

I am looking for an internationally-minded life partner who has a sense of adventure.

"A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us." John Steinbeck
What I’m doing with my life
I am teaching ESL at the moment, and focusing on finding that ever elusive full-time ESL job in academia.
I’m really good at
laughing. I have an odd sense of humor because I can see the comedy in almost any situation - though not always at the moment of the situation! This I attribute to having traveled much and having lived overseas. If you can't laugh at yourself, you do not know yourself well.

listening to others. I am that person who can find out a random stranger's life story in 5 minutes or less - just ask my friends and family. I love hearing stories, and I love telling stories.

talking. Although I am an introvert by nature, I am also a communications educator. I can carry on an intelligent conversation on almost any topic because I read obsessively when I have time. Currently, I am reading about Saudi Arabia.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list, so a few of each -
Books: East of Eden (fiction)- John Steinbeck, The Oracle Bones Trilogy- Peter Hessler (non-fiction); Better - Atul Gawande; anything by Bill Bryson and David Sedaris
Movies: Lost in Translation, Old Boy, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Les Miserables (except for the bad singing), The Last Unicorn
Shows: anime, historical/political documentaries, Korean dramas (except rom-coms)
Music: Queen, Bon Jovi, pretty much any classic rock; non-jukebox Broadway shows
Food: Korean, Mexican (sometimes together!), anything new - but I HATE seafood!!!
The six things I could never do without
-my books
-my passport
-my cats (love me, love my cat - but I'm not a crazy cat lady;)
-my students
-a pen and paper
-my family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
intercultural communication and the role of globalization - it's my job and passion.
the benefits of settling down vs. the benefits of traveling
On a typical Friday night I am
resting - sigh. I work too late and get home too late to do anything on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have always wanted to compete (with a partner) on "The Amazing Race."
"A woman can look both moral and exciting - if she also looks as if it were quite a struggle." Edna Ferber

That's my girl;)
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 27–45
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
you think we have something in common. I am really a friendly person who is open to communication with anyone. I believe that all good relationships start with a solid friendship.

SO what am I looking for? I am looking for someone who is open to explore the world and go on adventures with me (or vice versa - I make a pretty good Ruth). I am looking for that person who is not afraid to take chances, but can balance risk-taking with practical life skills (paying bills, staying out of debt/reducing debt, keeping a steady job, etc.). I am looking for the man I can lean on in times of trouble; in turn, you will always be able to lean on me - I am very dependable and loyal that way:)

As far as dating is concerned: I will only date Christian men - no exceptions. If you are not a Christian, we can certainly hang out, but that is as far as it goes. I don't want to lead anyone on...Likewise, if you aren't feeling it, please don't lead me on:
"Life's too short, babe,
Time is flying,
I'm looking for baggage
that goes with mine!"
Bonus if you can name the musical;)
