I was born in Bangladesh but I am more "westernized" than most Americans (and yet I could tell you the history of South Asia from memory - if you've got a few hours). I am not religious at all (I believe that you don't have to be religious to be a good person), but I am interested in religion (learning more about Judaism now). I am always excited about life and can put a positive spin on pretty much anything: computer stopped working? Opportunity to buy a new one. Flight delayed? Chance to grab a nice meal. Weather too cold? Practice for the Antarctica trip.
Yes, Antarctica - I was there in December. And Argentina. Also went to Israel and Jordan in May of last year. And took my mom and sis to the UK, Switzerland, and the Greek Isles in late summer. Yes, I love to travel (but who doesn't?), and I take a lot of time off. Life is short!
We would be perfect for each other if:
You are a kind, smart, adventurous woman who believes in love. You are honest. You know when to hold your ground and when to compromise. You have empathy (more than anything else, the one quality that would make the world a better place if people have more of it).
I find women who are successful at and happy with what they do to be irresistibly sexy. Apparently, some men are afraid of successful women - baffles me every time!
- Traveling and creating the perfect travel plans
Here are some of my favorite movies: Love Actually (I love this movie!), Meet Joe Black, Bicentennial Man, Ocean's Eleven, The Shawshank Redemption, Crash, Gladiator, Idiocracy (I fear what is portrayed there could become the reality some day), and Lord of War.
Some TV shows I like are The Good Wife, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones (season 5, yay!), Hustle (A great BBC show - think Ocean's Eleven on steroids every week), and Suits.
Favorite Music: I have an eclectic taste in music, and I like a little bit of everything.
Favorite Food: I am a foodie, and I would try almost anything once. I absolutely love Thai food, Indian food, Turkish food, South African food, Pizza, any fusion food, and pretty much any dish with meat in it. My three most favorite restaurants are in Prague, Montreal, and Portofino.
I also spend quite some time thinking about where I want to travel to next. I have a personal rule of visiting 5+ new countries every year - I have been to about 35 so far. My vacation planning for 2014 is already done, and I am now thinking about 2015.
