*In my best Public Service Announcement pose* Oh hey, didn't see you there. I'm Lara (yes, like Croft) and welcome to my profile.
You might wonder what you are doing here. Actually, I'm wondering the same thing. Why ARE you reading some random words I've somehow managed to put together to make sense (wait, do they make sense?) at 1 a.m., because that’s obviously the best time to get in touch with the inner Lara and put everything that comes to mind on paper/in this tiny little box that no one is ever going to bother to read.
Let's be honest here, you're here for completely superficial reasons (or you're here because you know me in person and were curious about what kind of shenanigans I would put on here... in which case wow this is awkward, but don't be a stranger, come say hi). You wanted to see if I could write in proper English and perhaps carry a conversation if we ever decide the other is not a creep and meet up for coffee. But if you are the kind that preys on Asian FOBs, shame on you, get off my profile!
So, who am I? That's a good question.
I can be sweet, outgoing, generous, and caring.
I can be a bit of a geek (yes, I know the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars) and having worked for a major consumer-electronics retailer for many years (take a guess where), I may give you better advice on tech products than most of your guy friends.
I can also be outspoken, sarcastic, brutally honest and a bit of a smart-ass biatch.
But for the most part, I am confident, ambitious, extremely rational and very excited to share my crazy adventures with the right person.
Think I’m exaggerating about the craziness? Ask me about the time I got serenaded “Hey Jude” by strangers for 3 blocks while walking downtown, or the time I got offered to buy packaged raw meat from a homeless man through the windows of a coffee shop, or the time I got a ride home from a guy who’s discovered 30-some moons on (around) Jupiter and Saturn.
Enough about me, let’s talk about you.
I’m looking for the mythical Prince Charming – confident, educated, ambitious, well-spoken and socially apt. Someone who understands the nuance between being an “intellectual” and being “intelligent”, between being “sarcastic” and being an “***hole”, between being “confident” and being “arrogant”. Someone who has long established who he is and knows who he wants to be; someone who is clear on his values, as well as the principles on which he leads his life.
I want a man; not a boy. I need someone who can challenge me in bettering myself in every way.
