First of all;
Yes, Paradise is my real name. My parents were eccentric, and I've kept it because it means almost nobody ever forgets my name, though I use my middle name professionally.
What else? I'm hyperactive, I get bored easily and I travel a lot. I lived in the US for a few months last year and I'm about to come back to go to school in Atlanta (I'm originally from Australia). I;d love to meet some cool people who will show me around, maybe take some trips with me. I'm dying to do an American road trip! To fund school I teach English overseas, so I spend a few months of every year abroad so I don't have to work as much during the school semester.
I'm kind of old school when it comes to dating. I seen a lot and I'm not impressed by thuggish behavior. I've been to finishing school in Switzerland, lived in Australia, Italy, Korea and the US. I speak several languages and I'm currently working towards my master's degree. I'm super attracted to ambition, passion and an open, adventurous spirit.
I think I'm lots of fun to hang out with, but I'm not really the right person to 'settle down' with right now. If you want stable, marriage and babies in the very near future, I'm probably not your best match. If you want to have adventures, travel, go out, stay in and sample my (very impressive, if I do say so) cooking and focus on having fun in the moment, hit me up - we could get along. Full disclosure also, I plan spend 3-4 months out of every year abroad, sometimes working in remote areas,so keep that in mind if you think it will bug you to date someone who leaves for months at a time.
I'm up for anything at all. I'd love to see what restaurants and bars you recommend, since you'll definately have been in this city longer than I have.
I only have two real requests. Don't pick me up in an insanely expensive car unless you're going to let me drive it. (And keep in mind that I learnt to drive on the other side of the world, so driving on this side of the road doesn't come naturally to me)
And don't try and take me back to a hotel room on the first date. It feels slightly hookerish. I might say yes, but if I do I'll probably wait until you're in the shower, buy all the pay-per-view porn and romantic comedies the room offers, order every dessert on the room service menu and request a 4am wake-up call before I let myself out. You've been warned.
