My self-summary
John Lennon said that "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." That applies to where I'm at with my life. Trying to find those in between moments to enjoy

I'm not from the Kansas City area and I'll just be living here a few months. I grew up outside of Chicago, then I lived in Portland for awhile and just recently finished teaching English in Taiwan for a few years.

Edit: I have been getting a lot of responses, so I want to make some things clear. There are a few parameters which I am firm about:

* Must be college educated or on-track to finish undergraduate in the next few years.

*Healthy lifestyle, no smokers, alcoholics or drug users

Ideally, I'd like to meet someone with these criteria

* Spent significant time (6 months+) outside of the United States

* Attractive, but not too attractive

* Type B personality

* Good person/morals and comes from a traditional family
