I started to type and my profile became really long, so I apologize if it's too long for you to read :)
My ideal match would be someone who can make me laugh. That's really important to me. I have a corny sense of humour, but I'm always cracking jokes or being sarcastic.
Someone honest and loyal...if you're blunt, you're for me. I appreciate genuine people.
A person with good family values. I'm close to my family, so that's a big deal breaker for me. Also, similar morals and virtues.
A man who is intelligent and has ambitious career and life goals for himself. Most of all, someone who appreciates what he has. I believe that to be happy, you have to accept your life as is and not look at what is missing, but be thankful for what you already have.
I am interested in someone who will nurture and build my spirit, not someone who will try to break it (and of course, I would be supportive of you - it's a two way street and both people have to give and work together).
You would be surprised at how many people copy/paste...please don't be one of them :) I'm not on here for the "attention" and don't have a false sense of importance based on how many messages I get. I'm just trying to connect with someone I find interesting and attractive. So, if you're really interested in getting to know me, then just drop a simple "hello" rather than an unoriginal message you copy/paste to every other girl. You don't have to come up with a novel, but just be genuine. I understand that you don't want to spend too much time coming up with something creative not knowing if you'll get a response, so just say "hi" and if there is interest, it will be reciprocated.
The basics: I'm half Macedonian and half Bulgarian. Although I've lived in Canada for most of my life, I keep in touch with my cultural roots and I also speak both languages fluently.
I love to travel - especially to New York City - that's my favourite place in the world. I also love Miami. Outside of the US/Canada, I've been to: Japan, Turkey, Austria, France, Italy, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Cuba, England, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Monaco and Switzerland. I think that's it.
I'm a Consultant at a Public Relations firm.
I'm also a homebody, although I'll go to a lounge/club on occasion, but not often...not my kind of scene.
MUSIC is my passion - I love to sing and to write. My dad was a composer and he teaches drums/guitar lessons, so I've always grown up around music and can't imagine my life without it. I enjoy concerts and I listen to pretty much everything. Love Stevie Wonder - he's my fave musician ever. Other artists I'm into...Prince, Esperanza Spalding, Adele, Kings of Leon, Black Keys, Beyonce, Lenny Kravitz, Tupac, Amy Winehouse, Frank Ocean, Mos Def, Amel Larrieux, Blu & Exile, Ella Fitzgerald...the list goes on. I'm a HUGE Nas fan and I love discovering up and coming artists - really love Daley, Jessie Ware (her voice is haunting), Lianne La Havas, Jhene Aiko, Delilah, SZA (so much underrated talent!) I also love world music...especially Bulgarian chalga and I love Latin and Middle Eastern music - they make me want to dance.
Shopping - like most girly girls - is my favourite sport :) (walking around the mall for 3-4 hours in heels is a sport, dammit!)
I love watching basketball. The Lakers are my favourite team. Kobe's my fave player - so if you're a Celtics or Heat fan (and if you like LeBron), please get off of my page right now! lol A little friendly competition is fun actually, but no trash-talking my fave team - not allowed!
I enjoy Thai and Greek food and any ethnic dining, basically. I've tried most types of food, from Ethiopian to Japanese and Indian. I'm not a fan of raw fish or seafood in general. Apple crumble and fried bananas are my FAVE desserts - or any Italian pastries like canoli - delicious.
I've always had an interest in photography (as a personal hobby only). I'm a fan of Instagram - it's so genius and fun and makes all my pics look prettier!
I love to laugh and have a great sense of humour. I'm opinionated, but tactful.
"A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters" and "Infidel" are my favourite novels. I was an English Literature major, so I've read quite a few books in my lifetime.
My favourite movies are "The Shawshank Redemption," "American History X" and "Babel" - and I'm a HUGE foreign-films watcher. In fact, that's basically why I'm subscribed to Netflix - for the foreign movies and really interesting documentaries. Some recommendations: Last Stop 174...if you've seen and liked City of God, you'll enjoy this one; Amores Perros, Backyard (El Traspatio), Viva Riva, A Prophet, Innocent Voices, Sin Nombre...off the top of my head.
My dog, Nikko, is my baby. He's a Pomeranian.
I have wonderful friends and family - I'm blessed!
