I'm kidding about the Ash/Giselle comment. But got your attention, didn't I?
Well its a beautiful Sunday morning and after another Saturday night dating Borders (I went out with Barnes Nobles on Friday), I decided to take another look at this site.
Ok, its now 15 min later, and I've been writing and erasing in an endless crazy loop and I still don't know what to say. Its not for lack of words, I have alot of them, too many some of my friends might say. Its just hard to know which ones to use here. I'm a contradiction. Talkative and outgoing when I want to be, a little reserved when I first meet someone, esp in this kind of forum.
Creative and interested in many areas of life. Easy going and hard to offend, like to live and let live. But also very focused on the startups I've run, to the exclusion of a social life at times. Very academic and sheltered by my parents while growing up, didn't drink, didn't party, somewhat boring. But have changed since then, and also a rebel in that I've done alot of things many wouldn't even attempt (exactly what you'll only get to know in person). Spiritual and a believer in the basic philosophy of Vedanta/Buddhism, though not a follower of any formal religion. Love singing (to myself) and taught semi-classical dance for many years (as a hobby) but got my CPA and accounting degree and very much into business. Very girly at times, I always have my nails done and love pink (I'm not sure I should publicly write that, my brothers make fun of me already)..but I wouldn't consider myself high maintenance either. I would describe myself as left and right brained and moderate in most areas.
I think I get along with many types of people, but I rarely "click" with someone. When I do, I fall very hard and will go to any lengths for that person. So I am somewhat old-fashioned in my relationships, but I am also very independent since I'm an avid entrepreneur and am used to moving out of my comfort zone.
What am I looking for? Someone with an edge, who is sharp and has an intelligent sense of humor but also a kind and compassionate side to him. Someone who is ambitious and confident, not one to fall into a constant routine, but also places priority on their family. And most of all someone who believes in maintaining that spark - I promise you I will never wear sweatpants or flannel pajamas :)
