My self-summary
I enjoy creating: I've published original music, short stories, created apps for android, and boardgames. The next challenge is to start a business - with purpose (social and environmental).

I like to challenge myself to learn and grow: I've been to over ten countries, a simple but profound way to step outside one's comfort zone. I majored in a scientific field for the very reason that I wanted to challenge myself.

I'm pragmatic: I also majored in biotechnology because I knew it would be a stable, growing field. Then got an MBA so I could become an entrepreneur with a foundation and understanding of business principles.

But why are we here? We're here to find love, I think. Is it possible with online dating? I've been in love before bit recently it seems more elusive. Even connecting beyond 2 or 3 messages seems elusive these days. I wonder why that is? Any suggestions you may have would be appreciated.

Meyer's Brigg's, INTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning the 'Pathetique Sonata' for classical guitar, 15-minutes a day Hiragana lessons, creating my own board game (just finished it!)
I’m really good at
Classical Guitar, playing piano by ear, ballroom dancing, sketching, writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Uncertain. People used to comment on my height (above average) or the shifting color of my eyes (which apparently change color in the light. Especially in colored light), back when people used to gaze into each other's eyes. I think we mostly gaze into cell phones these days. :P First date idea: turn off cell phones and gaze into each other's eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Stone and the Flute, a 900-page fairy tale translated from the original German. The Big Lebowski
The six things I could never do without
I think six things my cat could never do without would be more interesting for the reader: 6) sleep, 5) steamed salmon appetizer, 4) mid-morning nap 3) dry food 2) afternoon slumber 2) water 1) early evening hibernation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My imminent retirement. A short story idea about chivalric ideals of the high middle ages, on-line dating, and how the two seem to be so diametrically opposed, as to make a great story.
On a typical Friday night I am
ballroom dancing, or thinking that I should go ballroom dancing. Or wondering why I went ballroom dancing. Lamenting that more young women don't ballroom dance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that there are no private things I'm willing to admit here.
You should message me if
you're easy-going, flexible, low-key, enjoy hiking, looking to learn ballroom dancing, emotionally mature, enjoy intelligent conversation.

Deal-breakers: Any of the following: 1) you can't or won't have a conversation on the telephone as a way to get to know a person, 2) you have ever "ghosted" someone on-line. I believe if you've ghosted once, you'll ghost again. Have the courage, maturity, and consideration to say goodbye, don't just disappear into cyberspace. If you lack that courage and consideration, then you're not someone I want to get to know or introduce to my family. 3) if a sentence or a phrase in an email or text instantly makes you ghost a person you've been having a long conversation with. Email and text communication is very prone to ambiguity (you can't see or hear the person or see facial expressions). If after a long conversation in which we're sharing the many similarities we have in common, you decide to ghost because of a single sentence (or something), just move on and leave me alone - I'm looking for an emotionally mature woman.
