I enjoy movies, reading, traveling, live music, shooting pool, and exploring the town. I listen to all sorts of music - I love Blue October, Michael Buble, Sugarland, Kid Rock, and more - and have gone to several live shows like Aerosmith, Maroon 5, Sugarland, Blue October and Bob Schneider.
I'm not your typical Asian, although I do like math LOL I'm a computer geek that rides a motorcycle and has tattoos. I moved to the Dallas area a few years ago, and am trying to enjoy some time outside of work to meet new people. I am a die hard Chicago Bears fan, and when the game is on...please no talky talky. I also like the Cubs, the Blackhawks, and the Bulls. Yay, Chicago!
I love to cook and love to eat ;P I've joined groups that explore different ethnic restaurants in the area, and love trying things that...well...resemble something I would eat. I'm a people watcher - prefer to let someone else enjoy the limelight, but I'm not the quiet type. I'm pretty sociable and sarcastic in my humor. I'd like to think I'm funny, but I suppose that requires an audience. I'm career oriented, but know how to balance my work and my life. I am also family oriented - youngest of two, but lots of cousins.
Someone recently told me that I have a quick wit, and sometimes takes them a few minutes before they get it, but when they do get it they think I'm hilarious. Either I'm surrounded by slow people, or I need to work on my delivery. :p
I've been married, hurt, cheated on, etc. You call it baggage, I call it learning opportunities. I don't use it for ammunition. One person's mistake doesn't constitute the entire gender being at fault. If you think you're going to find someone without baggage, they are either too young to have experienced life, or they are not human. It's about acceptance, and though there are some things that are difficult to get past, it doesn't mean you can't entertain the idea of becoming friends. I've got my share of guy friends, and it's nice to have a guy's perspective on some things. Anyway, I'm not interested in rushing into another relationship without first taking some quality time to get to know each other. It doesn't mean we can't be adventurous, ahem, it just means you need to WOW me. I want to be WOW'd. Don't sweep me off my feet - the landing usually hurts. Give me something real. Someone who knows what it's like to work hard on a relationship and is willing to put themselves second not because I want or need it but because they believe I deserve it. I have loved and lost, and I don't believe in fairy tales. I'm not desperate to get married, and clinginess makes my eye twitch Relationships are based on friendship that may later foster into more. I'm not looking for happily ever after. I'm looking for someone to share time with where we enjoy similar interests. I'm not looking for a soul mate - that's cheesy. What I truly want to find is my best friend.
On a lighter note, I hope to find someone that knows the difference between "your" and "you're", doesn't use the non-word "irregardless", won't make fun of me when I sort my M&Ms by color before I eat them, can eat ice cream even in the dead of winter, will kill the bug regardless of how small it is, isn't into gangster crap, understands that when we are out to eat I may want to taste what you've ordered and will likely need you to finish what I've ordered, understands that beer is not a food group, accepts that bacon is the friggin bomb-diggity, and doesn't slobber when they kiss - my dog does that....
I volunteer as often as I can. Tough times are upon us, and we must take a moment to pay it forward and share the wealth. That doesn't mean monetarily. I look to give a hand up, not a hand out. It's a shame that not more people give their time to their community and neighbors. Be thankful that you are so fortunate.
If you are married/separated, do not have a photo posted, seeking a sugarmomma, or only interested in a fling, please do not bother wasting your time and effort contacting me. We are in the age of technology - posting pictures isn't difficult. You can see me, why can't I see you? What are you hiding? If you are still hung up on your ex (this includes excessive complaining) then you are likely not over that relationship and should consider working on closing that chapter before trying to find someone else. From my perspective, when the majority of our conversation entails your talking about her, how she did you wrong, feeling sorry for her current man, etc, says to me that you are still grieving the relationship. Not really 2nd date topic...sigh...you know who you are.
Just adopted a pug rescued from a puppy mill. So definitely need someone that enjoys dogs both big and small. They are a big part of my life.
BTW...if you read my interests and jump at the "spending your money", sheesh, relax. I have a job, I get paid well, and if there's something I want, I can go get it myself.
Coffee perhaps or a walk through the mall where we take turns making up the stories for the people around us. A movie wouldn't be ideal because we really don't get a chance to get to know each other. Dinner is more of a second encounter - I don't want you to waste money feeding me nor do I want to waste my time boring you. haha
Or maybe shoot some pool, as long as you play fair - no "letting" me win, but since I play in 8 and 9 ball leagues, I'm thinking I can either give you a run for your money, or mess with your game with some strategically played defense muahahaha
Believe it or not, I do enjoy watching sports, and once football season is back let me apologize now for the excessive yelling and cheering that I do. I find fishing to be calming, as long as I don't have to touch anything slimy. I've gone hunting once. Maybe we could sit by the lake feeding the ducks and staring up at the stars.
