Objective / Expectations from online dating
I am looking for a relationship, eventually, but I believe several tollgates are necessary before that can happen. I want to enjoy dating for the sake of dating until we get to know each other well enough to make a decision about getting serious. :) Does that make sense? I should mention that I am looking for intelligent women.
Hobbies and Interests:
I enjoy playing soccer with friends, running, reading non-fiction (economics, science, tech), walks, bike rides, tennis and most things that can get me outside. I spend all day in an office. When it rains i like games of all kinds though! Fun for me is new experiences and meeting people different from me. Some things I like do do are local arts culture, learning how others live/think, adventure sports or nature.
Goals and Career:
Learning is my the greatest pleasure. My goals are to become smarter and more experienced and to be able to succeed in a wide variety of situations. I want to live and work abroad and be an entrepreneur at least on the side. I am interested in a career or other pursuits that I can help others achieve their best through teaching, coaching and mentoring.
Unexpected things about me:
I have a garden or two where I try to grow food, but I'm not that good at that.
Languages: English-Fluent, Mandarin Chinese-2000+ word vocabulary. I can get around in Spanish, and Amharic.
What I'm not / Weaknesses:
Television is not my thing...don't have one. Media wise I stick to movies and public radio, I am a very casual music or sports fan. Weaknesses: Sometimes I think too much and miss the obvious. I know nothing about movie stars, pop stars, or much about music artists. I am so not musical, so I asked my Grandma is giving me piano when I help her out each week. Its really fun!
Favorite animal: Bear
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Dinner and conversation or, if not, dinner and we can mime our thoughts.
