I would also add that I am a pretty laid back person while still being ambitious. While I am very successful in my career, I do not let that define me. I consider myself a feminist and believe that most of the social ills in the world can be cured by empowering women. (A Nobel prize winner proved it out). I also follow politics and social issues very closely as well as volunteering a lot.
My life is pretty swell right now. I have a wonderful group of friends who mean the world to me. Parents who have always encouraged me and my two older sisters to be ourselves. I have three nephews whom I love to spoil. I have a wide variety of interests that keep me engaged.
But somehow it feels like there is something missing. Because no matter how fulfilling our lives are, there is always a part of us that wants to love and be loved. So that is why I am here. I am hoping to meet someone which leads to a long term relationship.
Finding the silver lining,
Cooking a good meal from scratch,
Volunteering for causes I care about.

Does OKC work for guys like me?
But if the Joker is wreaking havoc, I don my batsuit. The cowl really brings out my eyes.
When life throws you curveballs, it is important to have a sense of humor. Makes it much a easier to get through tough times. Kindness seems to be an underrated trait these days. I still value it very much. Someone who has most aspects of their life pulled together. I celebrate diversity. Whether it is a new cuisine or art form or destination. I hope you are similarly openminded as well.
Hopefully whatever you have read about me, has sparked your interest. So how about we find out more about each other over a cup of coffee?
