Furtive glances...that's what we are exchanging here. But I can't see you and you can't see me. We should fix that.
I'm attracted to complexity. Simplicity, in my view, is when complexity is understood, appreciated and respected. I like a simple relationship for what it implies.
Seeking constant improvement is a torment/joy of mine. I dig smart, cultured and nice people from all backgrounds particularly those different than mine. Bit of a cultural mix-up being half Persian and half Moroccan/Spanish. Middle eastern in appearance and warmth, but more Ameri-pean in thought and action.
I'd like to think I'm an aspiring intellectual looking to meet those in the same boat. My interests have long tentacles. Technology, cognitive science/ psychology, education / teaching / learning, art, architecture, entrepreneurship, modern design, culture, food, and science all fascinate me. What's most fascinating is listening or watching someone speak about their own passion and getting infected by it.
The most attractive thing to me is sincerity, kindness and intelligence (I stress this part because it is important to me and hopefully it is to you too.). If you don't get the concept of reciprocity, good luck. Someone has to make the first move.
Being earnest, modest, engaged, focused, warm and aware would be apt descriptors, I hope.
I'm not sure if I've said too much or not enough.
... and I will add, for reference, that I know the difference between there they're and your and you're. Shocking, I know. Seems to be an epidemic among men on this site, as stated by countless women, who don't.
What I'm doing w my life
Optimizing it. Learning, growing, aspiring...
by trying to find all the amazing things to do, see, eat, build, jump off of etc. And trying to meet someone unique that fits my puzzle and I fit theirs.
You should message me if:
You are smart, warm, kind, adventurous, mentally stable, cultured (or want to be) and open minded.
If you are not over the last guy, emotionally unavailable, self-obsessed, obsessed with pop culture, a hopeless workaholic or otherwise odd, I don't do drama/games. I'm realistic, and this can't be that hard, can it?
If you read all of the above, well then you're almost there. I'm very impressed by a woman that makes the first move. It shows initiative. Initiative is sexy.
While having a pen pal is nice, for a 5th grader in 1995, I'm more inclined to skip the multiple emails or texts and just meet, chat, laugh and let things progress as they may - or may not. If we start a thread and you disappear, I'll assume someone else has found you or you have a map and a whistle to find your way back.
My view is that this endeavor to find a relationship does not have to be binary i.e. either you fall madly in love or not. There are many amazing people here and I'd like to meet a few with the hope that one will really be uber amazing for and to me - and of course I will wholeheartedly reciprocate with enthusiasm. That means we can also just be friends and not only lovers or haters.
I will also add, I am looking to meet someone close to Los Angeles/Orange County. Starting long distance has a high probability of failure. I like to succeed.
