Let me tell you a little story about me...
=====> Nerdy beginnings
I was THE typical Asian kid when I was growing up.
Diligent with school.. listened to what my mom had to say.. work on weekends... and of course get straight A's otherwise, I'd get the cone of shame from my parents.
Pretty throughout HS and college, I didn't really socialize much.. let alone meet women.
Of course, I am a guy.. and every guy wants to meet someone special (which explains POF).
But I was shy.. low on self confidence... broke most of my childhood... So meeting a girl seemed like a fairy tale.
Then.. BAM.. after college, i started working, which meant I moved out and started making money.
Some SERIOUS money.
=====> Life got fast
Of course, with more money then I knew what to do with came the fast life of partying, drinking, meeting women.. I was the innocent child who was new to this life of glamour and well, fun and exciting.
But things kinda got out of control ... and things went down. pretty FAST.
For next 2-3 years of my life, I must've visited every bar, club, and party within 25 mile radius on daily basis.
Of course if you spend most of your night doing stupid things.. trouble will come looking for you... fights, arguments, broken friendships, bailing friends out of jail,... this was NOT what I signed up for.
How did I go from a chubby nerdy altar boy (yes, i was one of'em) to this law breaking, party animal?
It was a low point in my life.
I was questioning who I became,... and was seriously depressed.
=====> Spiritual Revelation on Tivo
One night, in my drunken stupor after partying 6 hours non-stop... being depressed and feeling lonely, I decided to turn on TV.
And who was on TV? Tony Robbins.
He said some stuff that inspired me... then I started reading other books like Rich Dad, Poor Dad... Purpose Driven Life... and all kinds of books I would consider "crap".
Then came the light of hope.. I got depressed because this isn't who I am nor was I doing anything interesting with my life that adds value to anyone's life.
========> Clean Up and Shape Up
I decided to stop hanging out with my (dumbass) party & drama friends and seek out something better.
First, I dropped 10 lbs.. I was never fat, but i got serious about my health... eating better, exercising daily.
Then, I started reading every business book I can get my hands on.. and started meditating every day.
I wanted to be an entrepreneur... (Even though I'm no longer the mama's boy that I once was, I still honor my mom ... and want to take care of her financially in her retirement years.. And of course, make an impact on my customers, my employees, and of course, the world.
========> Journey in Progress
Am I filthy rich? No... not YET. ;P
I'm blessed with a career that gives me the freedom to either work from home or from a hammock on the beach (both of which I've done, but prefer office much more).
Not gonna lie to you.. it wasn't always this rosy.
For 7 years.. I was struggling just to pay the rent and eat bare minimum.
Every time things went bad, I would question why in the world anyone would give up a six figure job to struggle.. then soemthing inside me kept saying "don't give up".
Now after the struggle.. I am seeing the light of day.
Where will I be in 3 years? Who knows..
All I know is... I plan on making enough so my wife never has to work, but instead be a mom and a wife who can support me emotionally when things get tough.. and can share the happiness and pleasure of being on this journey together.
===========> What I'm Looking For
.. a woman who I can wake up next to every morning and say "damn I'm the luckiest man in the world.. how did I get a woman like this"
.. a woman who I can grow old with and walk down the park with our wrinkly hands together
.. a woman who I can lean on when things get tough and I feel like crying like a little girl
.. a woman who will tell me when I do something wrong or stupid..
.. a woman who will be the greatest mom, lover, and partner
PS: If you're not Asian, that's OK. In fact, I encourage you to msg me. I'm really curious about people who are different from who I am on romantic interest level.
PPS: Age really doesn't matter to me b/c i've met 21 years olds who are more mature than my mom... and people who are in their retirement age who act like they just graduated HS. Cool is cool. Sexy is sexy. No need to use your age as an excuse from life's vast possibilities.
PPPS: My story is really mine.. it wasn't a copy paste job from some website. ;P
