I am somewhat shy, which surprisingly enough, persons misinterpret as me being standoffish or arrogant which I don't think is the case at all. Once you get to know me, I can be your staunchest ally. I have very good friends who think I am the cat's meow ;)
In any event I'm very driven, motivated to succeed and not afraid of hard work. I enjoy travelling (minus the airport bit) and learning new stuff. Witty/intelligent conversations get my motors going and I've been told that my funny-side brightens many a gloomy day.
In my line of work I more often than not put others before myself. I am not however a pushover. I just believe once you treat somebody how you would like to be treated - you can never go wrong (...unless you're a masochist...then things can get kinda iffy)
I like being with people who get me. Non-judgemental people who are honest and fun-loving. I've been known to while away a free day on a new bestseller I bought just for that occasion (Books are a bit of an aphrodisiac). I also enjoy a good flick; and I don't discriminate - thrillers, horror, comedy, drama - I'm all in.
Recently started "the gym thing"; not for any vain reasons; solely because I think a healthy mind should be accompanied by a healthy body (and vice versa). Next up is soul-enrichment...that's gonna be a biggy.
The part of my job I like the most is seeing a patient come back to the hospital for follow-up care, knowing that my contribution made it possible for them to be alive. Not a God-complex, mind you - I leave that to the surgeons. It's just humbling to be able to help the critically ill.
I've also been told I am a really great friend, so if that's a skill- there you have it :)
Traditionally prefer fiction, but non-fiction rocks my boat just as easily.
I confess, I may watch a tad too much tv. I love BBT and Family Guy, Game of Thrones, True Blood and I liked Spartacus before it got all weird in this last season.
I've watched so many good (and bad) movies that it would be sacrilegious to pinpoint a favourite. But I love The Last Castle, Gladiator, Pretty Woman (what girly girl doesn't?) X-men series, LOTR, Taken, anything Pixar, Avatar, Forrest Gump, Braveheart, just to name a few....
MUSIC - I love music. Fullstop. My Bob Marley cd's are right next to Linkin Park and Paramore. Spent a couple years in Cuba so Salsa and Merengue are in the mix as well. Big Luther, Mary J., Eminem and Coldplay & Chopin..I'm all over the place
FOOD - Italian and Sushi are very high on my list of faves. My local cuisine is a must, but willing to eat almost anything once it's properly prepared.
But seriously though, this life has taught me that there are many things/persons I once thought were indispensable, that I can now indeed do without.
But.. I am quite attached to my family and a handful of close friends, my books, my cell phone and East Japanese's fried salmon roll. That leaves one space to be filled...
If I am not at work I'd be at the movies, or hosting a movie night at home, having a drink out with friends or just some QT with me :)
You should NOT message me if after a single online conversation you expect me to meet a virtual stranger :/ Worse if it's for the generic "hook-up." To date, there is nothing in my profile that says "fast&easy"...
.....even worse if you are married posing as single -_- keep it moving right along: nothing here screams "homewrecker"
