My self-summary
I'm pretty outspoken about issues I care about, such as politics and social justice. I'm pretty down-to-earth, compassionate, and passionate. I enjoy learning (I'm addicted to Coursera), cooking (I'm pretty good at it, thanks to my mom teaching cooking and nutrition), and using parentheses way too much (see what I mean?).

I'm looking for a grounded, socially responsible partner who can understand my balance of Deep Thoughts and craptastic reality tv watching habits. Since I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humour, my partner should have a great sense of humour and be able to give as good as they get.
What I’m doing with my life
In my spare time, I like to knit, read, and watch television (usually sports - I like NASCAR, MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA, soccer, tennis, and golf). I also enjoy yoga, walking around West Philly, and talking to people about what's going on in the world. I'm one of those people who can talk to nearly anyone about anything.
I’m really good at
Giving long answers to easy questions, over-thinking simple things, and spending the entire day in a bookstore.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short (4'6") and I'm Asian (more specifically, Korean).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Michael Connelly, John Lescroart, or Brad Meltzer. I love mysteries, cosies, thrillers... anything in that general area of the bookstore -- the darker, the better!

Movies (and this is not an inclusive list): Seven, Pulp Fiction, American Beauty, The Shawshank Redemption, Mulan, Ocean's Eleven (the remake), any movie with Mae West, X-Men and X-2 (but NOT X-3), Evita, Office Space, Elizabethtown, Snakes on a Plane.

Music: I enjoy most genres of music. My current music collection includes everything from Christian to Eminem, and Garth Brooks to Tupac. I also like classical, Broadway showtunes, pop, and contemporary adult music. My all-time favourite, though, is Michael Jackson. If you don't/didn't like him or if you have negative feelings about him, just stop reading now.

Food: I love food. I especially enjoy Mexican (I eat at El Rey for lunch way too much), Indian (I love the buffet at Minar Palace), Ethiopian (I go to Kaffa's Crossing for their veggie combo pretty often), and sushi (for my money, you can't beat AKI). And tacos. I could eat tacos almost every day.

Television shows I like: Person of Interest, SVU, Covert Affairs, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, The Good Wife, The Voice, Project Runway, Survivor, Big Brother, Top Chef, Scandal, Parenthood, Shark Tank. (I'm as big of a couch potato as this makes it seem; I promise!)

Shows I've loved that I'm now mourning (to give you a broader view of my tastes): Friday Night Lights, FlashForward, Lie to Me, Joan of Arcadia, Sports Night, Friends, Awake, Harry's Law, How I Met Your Mother, The Mentalist.
Six things I could never do without
Internet access
Sports (I love football, ice hockey, tennis, baseball, NASCAR, and my co-worker is teaching me about basketball)
My smartphone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Humanity - where it is and where it isn't. How to get it where it isn't. Why it's absent and what makes it spread.

How I can be a more compassionate person. Why others aren't more compassionate.

How I managed to become such a bleeding heart liberal when I was raised as a Southern Baptist in the Bible belt.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably watching a race/game and knitting. Whatever I need to do to decompress after working all week. I'd love to be less of a homebody, but I like to do things with people -- not so much because I need to have someone to go out with, but because I believe a lot of an experience is having someone to process the experience with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love tea. I have an entire stash of loose teas, complete with filters and an infuser, depending on my mood. I also have an electric tea kettle, and accounts with two different online tea companies. It really is an issue. I'm well on my way to becoming the crazy tea lady.
You should message me if
You're looking for someone who wants to know how you're day went, wants to make the bad days better, and wants to make the good days awesome.

You're interested in stimulating and sometimes sarcastic but witty conversation.

You can hang with someone who spends time thinking deep thoughts but then vegs out by watching some craptastic television (we all need some balance in our lives, right?).

You want to be with a woman who wants a partner who respects her -- respects her intelligence, respects her time, respects her body (although this doesn't mean I don't know how to have fun).

You are looking for a meaningful relationship and you understand that just because I don't want casual sex doesn't mean I want a proposal by the fifth date.

You understand that just because I'm bisexual you aren't scoring a threesome.

You won't feel the need to comment on how short I am when we meet in person. Think about it - would you tell an overweight person "Holy shit - you really ARE fat!!!" when you first laid eyes on them?

Bonus points if you have a FL profile (extra bonus if you know what an FL profile is without looking it up or asking!).
