First thing, my profile is long, but it's okay if you message me after reading only 10% of it. Long profiles can feel like lots of work, right?
Second, though online dating is a great tool, I do like to meet a woman either in person or through online chats after exchanging only a few emails. Creating conversation is much more natural and effortless with quick, real-time responses. A great conversation can feel like a thrill, getting me at the edge of my seat.
So, about me, I lived in the SF bay area for the past 6 years, and I'm a grad student in international economics. I loved growing up in Hawaii, my original home. I love city life, warm weather, and a diverse body of people. My church life keeps me rooted in community because there's always a chance to serve, and my friends have really been there for me. Though I struggle with faith, I draw so much meaning and identity in it. If you'd like to chat on that, I'm all for it.
Things I love: riding my bike, watching and discussing movies. In music, I play some piano, some guitar, more of drums, bass guitar too. I love singing songs. I'm extroverted although I'm not super talkative; I like hearing quiet people speak more than loud people over-talk.
As far as my match, I'm really looking for someone who can help me to be the person I truly am. I don't always know what that is, and I've accepted that often that's clearer from an outsider's perspective. I seek someone who can set me free.
We all have a story to share. What's yours?
movies: there are WAYYY 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.
music: I think 80s and 90s music is much of my fav. I love listening as well as playing it. I tend less to go to pricey concerts; the jazz/folk/alternative/indie artists often amaze me much, and they can often be < $5.
How each person's personal life story is made up of where she is from and where she's been
There's tons of private things we all know about ourselves, and they are so much fun to share with someone we trust. (in other words, I'll tell you when we reach that point)
- you're from Hawaii or have spent significant time there
- you have an affinity for music, especially classical, like Chopin or Debussy
- you get excited about staying in and watching movies, or even just talking about a ton of them!
- you also like to go sightseeing in random places that are not always well-known or popular
