I've lived in Norhern California my entire life, but that doesn't mean I've been living under a rock. I've traveled to most parts of the world soaking up different cultures and learning different languages. So, from learning to appreciate all cultures of the world, I guess that's what makes me so passionate about my own Persian heritage.
From traveling so much and seeing different views through different eyes, it definitely contributes to my social beliefs as well. I like to see myself as a very open-minded person, and I like to surround myself with open-minded people. Music and food is no exception. I listen to pretty much any type of music you can name, and there hasn't been a cuisine that I don't like. Well, from what I've tried so far. I pretty much live by the phrase "Don't knock it, 'til you try it."
I consider myself an educated woman, so I'm definitely looking for someone who can keep up with my intellect and keep the conversation long and interesting. I'm currently working as a Medical Assistant.
Dance has become a huge part of my life since I have studied many different styles, and I try to practice them as often as possible, with someone who knows how to take the lead. I prefer Salsa since I've been dancing in that style for 5 years now. I also sing, and am looking for someone who plays an instrument so we can make some beautiful music together.
I was raised to give my all in everything I do, so it's always nice to meet someone who does the same. I prefer people who are passionate about what they do. I couldn't lie to myself and be completely committed to something I'm not passionate about. It's so refreshing to see someone enthralled with what they do everyday. When you see that spark light up in someone's eyes, there's no better feeling than to enjoy and share that feeling.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
It really depends on the person that I'm with. After, a nice quiet dinner and a few drinks, I would take my date out for dancing. So much can be told about a person through how they carry their body on the dance floor. I love any Latin styled dance, so we'd probably go to a salsa club. But if you're not a dancer OR the quiet type, maybe we can go a few rounds a laser-tag!
