I'm a teacher by day, grad student by night, pool/beer/vodka aficionado on the weekends, and a crazy mess all in between. But I think I wear all my hats well.
Things that are important to me:
-To never become stagnant in life
-To always be a good friend/daughter/sister to those already in my life
-Social issues (environment, family, education, etc)
A good time with a person who understands responsibilities and has common interests as me. A serious personality who lets loose when the opportunity arises to.
"I want a relationship" ..... but I'm sure my idea of a relationship is different than yours. It's a broad term... My end-all-be-all game in life is not to get married and have kids. So if that's what you are looking for I will be a disappointment.
-I'm half Asian.
-I'm a Buddhist.
-I joined the Peace Corps when I was 21.
-I speak Ukrainian and Spanish.
-I'm a special ed teacher and teach functional math skills and self regulation to high schoolers with severe behavioral needs.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A drink at a quiet bar, some laughs and a thought provoking conversation about how we are going to change the world.
Or coffee and awkward conversation. It's all good.
