Ok, a little bit about myself.
I'm career-minded. I worked very hard to get where I am, and I'm certainly not finished yet. I'm ambitious, but not greedy.(if you don't understand the difference, please ask) I work in electronics and I love science and technology, so I'll admit to having a bit of a geeky side. That being said, I don't dress up in costumes(except for Halloween), I don't go to all these sci-fi conventions, and I'd much rather go outdoors and be physically active(especially in the summer) than sit in front of a computer. I do exercise regularly, and have studied Kung Fu for 17 years, so physical fitness is very important to me.
I'm known for making people laugh. My sense of humour is very cynical and sarcastic, with a touch of British wit(from my mother's side of the family). As is common with sarcastic people, I tend to be opinionated, although my opinions aren't formed lightly. One of my strongest opinions is on the importance of friends. My friends mean the world to me. Some of them are very geeky, some of them are just weird, but they're good people in their hearts. That's how and why I chose them.
Keep in mind that while I dress rather dapper(yes, those pics are how I normally dress), I do it because I like to put effort into my appearance, not because I want to show off money. Class and money aren't the same thing.
I LOVE dancing. It's a bit of a contradiction, because the local club scene tends to be full of people who are either trying to get something from someone else, or prove something to someone else. So I temper the annoyance of that by making sure that I'm around good people when I do go out.
Favourite movies: Avengers, Iron Man trilogy, The Mummy, The Underworld series, Shrek, Rush Hour, The Forbidden Kingdom, The Equalizer
Favourite TV shows: The Mentalist, White Collar, MASH, Arrow, Gotham.
Music: huge fan of electro-house(like David Guetta), but also love R&B, hip-hop, soca, and most other things I can dance to. I do not however like country music or metal. That stuff is like nails on a chalkboard to me.
For all the foodies, atheists and vegetarians. I'm none of these things, and while it's not a deal breaker in a potential girlfriend, trying to convert me is. I won't put up with someone who belittles being religious, omnivorous, or eating at The Burger's Priest.
What I'm looking for in a woman
I'm looking for a woman who, like me, is career minded. I can't see it working out if I'm focused on my career, and you think that it's just a way to pay the bills. In the same vein, someone who's ambitious but not greedy. I loathe greed. When people talk about wanting expensive cars and big houses it makes me throw up in my mouth a little. Independence is a must. If your plan is to go from living with your parents to living with your boyfriend, it's not gonna work out.
Intelligence is required. I'm not talking about the type of intelligence that goes with programming a computer, or having a PhD, I'm talking about day-to-day common sense, setting priorities, and being able to understand people. This rates higher than any advanced degree or high paying science job, because this is what your life is made of.
Compassion is also a must-have. I'm not just talking about towards me, or towards your friends and family, but to all people. True compassion is when you give something to someone who can never pay you back. If that statement resonates with you, we'll probably get along.
Well that's all I can think of right now, so tell me if you like what you read.
