OK, I'm pretty new to this, so bear with me!! I'm also a humble person, so I hate saying "I...I...I," but that's the nature of the beast, I guess, so here goes:
I consider kindness, compassion, and empathy to be the most important qualities a person can have. I want to make this world a better place for my having lived in it. I created and co-run a nonprofit organization that grants merit based scholarships to 300 indigent children in Pakistan and Cameroon.
I have a wide range of intellectual interests and will read almost anything. I have degrees in psychology, mathematics, medical laboratory science, computer science, and anthropology (I was an archaeologist for a time, now I am a medical lab scientist). I have an almost childlike sense of wonder about all aspects of this life we find ourselves in.
I LOVE helping people. I'm the 'go-to' person if someone needs help moving. I am the friend who says they will help with such things, but actually follows through.
I love to travel, especially road trips! I've been to every state in the contiguous US, and look forward to exploring the rest of the world.
I am very much an animal lover--I would like to open a non-kill animal shelter some time in the future. I also love kids, although I don't have any.
Feel free to jot me a note if I sound like someone you'd like to meet. Otherwise, hope your fishing goes well!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd prefer something laid back to the typical uptight first date style meeting. Lunch/coffee/tea/volunteering together would be nice, I think.
