My self-summary
Just moved from Asia to New York for my job this January 2016 and optimistic about the infinite possibilities that lies ahead. Been told by many that I have a huge heart. Grateful. Affectionate. Passionate. Witty. Fiercely loyal. Incredibly faithful. Well-traveled. Family-oriented. Feminine. Been described as a combination of style, character, and substance in one package.

Taking a strategic risk by joining this site with the hopes that I meet the right person for me. I'm looking for a genuine man with his heart in the right place. If you're compassionate, love your family (especially your mum and sisters), believes in some of our good old traditional values such as faithfulness, loyalty, and respect... I'd love to meet you.

In this modern day and age, someone who knows how to treat a woman right, who knows how to be a gentleman, perfectly stands out from the rest.

If my profile struck a chord and we share similar values, if you're big on compassion and kindness, driven in your career, passionate about life, and if you enjoy travel, dogs, books, coffee, good food (Italian/French/Thai), health & wellness, etc, then we definitely share these interests to begin with. Come say hello!

I very rarely write first but I reply, especially to conversations that come off sincere and kind, or funny and smart. Either way, if I saw your profile and saw potential in any form, I honestly think that I'd be compelled to write back. :)
What I’m doing with my life

The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes or my lips and that I smell very nice. =)
Come to think of it- I get complimented by colleagues and friends mostly on this aspect. Even get random compliments from strangers asking what scent am I wearing. I love fragrances and have quite a collection! I wear one depending on my mood!

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Cannot stand body odor and those who do not care about their personal hygiene.
You should message me if
I am drawn to a good man who has a big heart, loves his family especially his mom and sisters, fiercely loyal, funny, responsible, affectionate, and not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve. If you love coffee, dogs, and traveling, then we're off to a great start! =)

P.S
Please say more than a hi or hello, it starts off a conversation and is much appreciated.
