My self-summary
Seeking an ethereal match.....

I'm of the eclectic variety. I have an academic background, but also an auto-tech one. I love travel, tennis/gym/walks, intellectual betterment, traveling (yes that's the second time), writing and guitar, meeting characters and most of all, cars which are my passion. If I could have one track day a week, I'd be set.

I love the question, "what do you look for in the opposite sex?" It's a brilliantly, obviously impossible question to ask since human beings are such inconstant, contradictory creatures. So, when someone asks me that question, I typically say that I want to meet someone who is a bit "off". Bizarre, right? I just believe that the right "match" will be someone who is different in an unusual way. But perhaps more essential is a being whom will balance and complement me. I have taken notes during my dating career, and it seems that balance in personality also ranks highly. I'm a very sociable introvert who enjoys time one on one to loud gatherings. Equally important in a relationship is a relatively similar outlook/values on/in life.

I enjoy learning about the world around me. I'll always be reading anything from scientific journals to philosophical classics. Yes, I get the dictionary word of the day. The one thing about the constant pursuit of knowledge is that you realize you know less and less the more you learn. I often have to temper my intellectual curiosity with mindfulness.

Seriousness aside, I enjoy witty banter. I'm also a very free spirit: I sing out loud when I'm at the gym. I love to take walks especially in the rain. I really think that electrolyte water gives me superpowers. Science is lovely. The Arts are unreal. I am not complicated but rather complex and you might learn something new about me every single day.

I'm looking for someone that is my equal in character and will elevate me. I'm looking for someone who is kind and will gently help me with my flaws so I can succeed with less tumbles. I dedicate a large portion of my energy to self-improvement, the only path to reaching my full potential. I'm looking for someone who can appreciate my intricacies and vice-versa and create a bond that works seamlessly. I don't expect a relationship to be without its difficult times, but it's precisely those difficult times that lead to greater connection.

Since I think deeply, I may come across as quite serious, but I do have a fun loving side. Certain people bring that out in me very effortlessly. I act like a 14 year old girl around cars and some very lucky/unlucky people who connect to my inner child.
What I’m doing with my life
Always something different but always something interesting. Currently I am back in school.
I’m really good at
Understanding where others comes from. I am empathetic for a various number of reasons and enjoy connecting with people on a deep level. I try, and often succeed, to not be judgmental.

Even though I am an introvert, I have a natural ability to connect with just about anyone. I do not shy away from social situations, but I prefer relationships of quality over quantity.

Discussing being human.
The first things people usually notice about me
Unanimously it's my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Herman Hesse, Chuck Palahniuk, Nietzsche, Vonnegut, Voltaire, Plato, Quinn, Gladwell. I read A LOT, but not typically from Oprah's Book Club list. I prefer movies or books that alter my perception of the world for the better. That buzz I leave a good movie with is the buzz of my cerebral cortex rearranging its perspective into a newer version of moi.

Korean, Indian, French cuisine.

Music - Either alternative rock, grunge or classical. I'm open to everything and enjoy going to unplugged music events.

Movies - Fight Club, American Beauty, American History X, Shawshank Redemption, Chapelle Show, Idiocracy, The Prestige, American Psycho, Donnie Darko, What About Bob, Cruel Intentions, The Royal Tennenbaums, Men of Honor, The Matrix.
The six things I could never do without
-A key to a race prepped BMW
-Fresh flowers
-My Toshiba which I fear will become a Mac one day soon (it did)
-Hot chocolate
-Road trips
-Frequent travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my personal philosophy and where others are coming from.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not at a bar, but usually at a good restaurant, interesting movie, a walk, traveling, exploring.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It takes me a long time to open up to people.
You should message me if
You honestly think I'll respond. As much as i want to have erotic fireside chats about the size of your cojones, I just don't have the time.

Please do not message me if you are an utter narcissist. I would like a reciprocal relationship.

I am definitely not online for hookups, and while I don't judge if you are, I don't think I will change my mind in this century. I am a very caring and sensitive person, so I choose the people in my life deliberately.
