So let's see. Despite being very busy I do manage to make time for graduate school. I also make it a point to decompress and do the things I like, amongst them are to spend time with the people I care about. I don't let my self become a slave to my work, the work isn't going anywhere and will still be there in the morning. I like a woman with looks of course, but who can also keep up with me. They must have brains, spunk, self confidence, humor and wit (have to be able to take a joke and be quick with it and return a joke), be willing to learn, and open minded. I find that people that have been through some sh*t in their lives and were able to push through it have a strong and resilient character. I enjoy being around those types the most, conversations with them are always good and chances are I can learn something from them. Well that's it for now.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would like to meet someone who loves their family, takes care of themselves, and of course shares some of my interest. First date would be somewhere planned to talk and get to know one another, then see where it goes from there. Being spontaneous with it is also fun.
