What I believe about love: to be loved is to be deeply known by someone. It's about accepting who your partner is, all their peculiarities, in spite of never having chosen who he or she is.
One of the most influential podcasts I heard about online dating (episode with Aziz Ansari on Hidden Brain) is about how choosy this invention has made us. How there are many things people consider necessary in a match, which may not be the things that matter.
Message me and let's talk. Whether our life stories seem similar on the surface or not, when two people talk they discover so much more.
I'm from Hawai'i. I love the diversity and activity of city life. I read books about faith, hope and love. There's a book The Five Love Languages, and mine are spending time together, and words of affirmation.
Things I love: storytelling, riding my bike, watching movies. In the kitchen, baking bread, brewing beer & kombucha. In music, I play some piano, some guitar, more of drums, bass guitar too. I love singing songs. I'm extroverted though not super talkative; I love giving quiet people the chance to speak and to listen to them.
We are each on a journey to better understand ourselves. Call it trite, but I call it truth. We all benefit from an outsider's perspective on ourselves. If I can help someone become the best person that she can be, and if she can do that to me, then we can set each other free.
movies: too many to name. Films with Matt Damon, Denzel, Clooney, Brad Pitt, Liam Neeson. films directed by Chris Nolan.
fav food: Japanese, Korean, Hawaiian, Thai, Italian, Latin.
music: I think 90s music is much of my fav. I love listening as well as playing it. alternative/indie/jazz/folk artists often amaze me, and I love catching an up-and-coming artist live
friends and social gatherings
kitchen, oven, and a well-stocked fridge
How people have such fascinating stories, of where they are from and where they have been. It's especially why I listen to story-telling podcasts much.
And food. Boy do I think about food.
