I love to learn. I am very curious and like to ask a lot of questions. I am currently learning Mandarin. I plan to learn to Scuba dive soon. I am learning to program. I love to travel and learn to cook the local cuisine. Well, you get the idea.
I am a very intense person. I don't believe in quitting. I am also very competitive. I like to compete in athletic activity and challenge myself physically and intellectually.
I am also caring. I may not be the best at recognizing people's feelings. But they matter a lot to me. My relationship with people is inspired by my religious faith. I believe that God created everyone. And, that everyone should be respected because everything God creates is a gift.
I am looking for my soulmate. I believe that God has a plan for me and that I am destined to find and marry my soulmate. Someone who is open minded. Someone who is caring. Someone who is creative and intellectual. I believe in waiting for marriage because I know I will find her and want to remain faithful to her. I am looking for someone who shares these same values. And, for someone who wants to raise healthy, well adjusted, high achieving children.
I love foreign films and art films. But, my favorite film as a kid was Tron.
I like independent music and old blues-rock stuff on Chess and Sun and all the great post-punk stuff from the 80s and 90s. Favorite Band: the Smiths.
I like ethnic food. I really love rice. Not a big fan of sandwiches. I don't think a salad is a meal. Currently obsessed with Chinese dumplings and big juicy reds.
Other things I really like: surfing (i am trying to learn. so, don't expect me to give you lessons), indian food (i was in a south asian cooking group in university. i make a mean aloo gobi.), trader joe's (it is like a 7-11 all grown up.), wii just dance (there is no better way to embarrass yourself at a party.), karaoke (i tried to fight my love for you because i don't want to be an asian stereotype. but, karaoke i can't quit you.)
1. my guitar
2. running shoes
5. cell phone
Also, I am not photogenic. And, I have no idea how to take a good selfie.
I would like to meet someone that can keep up with me, someone who is thoughtful and introspective, and someone who is ambitious, but who genuinely cares about people.
Please ignore the rest of this. I am trying to get to 1000 words so that I can "complete" my profile. Is this cheating? Yes. But, Do you really want to read a whole bunch more about me? If anything you read interests you, you should message me. I would like to hang out. I like to start as friends first. Probably, we won't even go out on a real date until I get to know you and feel comfortable around you.
Here is a story about Alex the Horse. Once upon a time, there lived a horse named Alex. He was an ordinary horse, not too fast, not too slow. But, Alex had one special quality; he could count with his hoof. One day while Alex was grazing with his other horse friends, he came upon a group of bees. How many bees were there? One, Two, Three.
A couple of hobos saw Alex counting and they thought let's capture him and take him to carnivals. He can make us some money. So, the Hobos took a rope and swung it around Alex's neck. Alex tried to get away by spinning. How many times? One, Two, Three, Four, Five. Five times.
Alex was put into a cage and the evil hobos took him to the first carnival. At the carnival, Alex was given his own...
