Hi! Thanks for visiting my page :)
I'm very service-oriented. I like doing Selfless Service as promoted by the ancient religious sects like Siddha Yoga and Buddhism. My ideal match would do service together - volutneering, hosting an orphan, be a Big Brother or Big Sister together, help elderly as side jobs on the weekend - and dance together. I just can't imagine not dancing with my partner. I am applying to be a Big Sister right now. WIsh me luck! I help at my church to prepare meals for the homeless and volunteer at Second Harvest to sort the food. These give me a lot of pleasure. Also, I go social dancing in Palo Alto and Mountain View. Richard Powers is a great instructor, in case you want a tip :)
I have had great success in most of my life, doing everything that I proposed: living in France for work and school, getting a scholarship, graduating from Stanford. I have also been very driven, becoming a raft guide for 2 years, developing rock climbing skills to 5.10 (if that means anything to you!!), mountain bike competitions (for fun, I assure you), and travelling around Europe while I was in France. I've made a lot of plans, then I had some set-backs. I didn't get along well in Civil Engineering and was laid off or quit 5 jobs in 5 years. I decided to leave my field, but the transition caused me to delve into homelessness for 3 years..... The first year I was in school, while staying at the VA homeless shelter (not a veteran just had some good luck in the midst of it all), for HR Management. Then I tried my hand at suing my companies, and the EDD, and those didn't get off the ground bc I couldn't find anyone to take my cases. tried to pursue this myself, but was missing the courage and fortitude to get it right. (something like that). The third year I got really sick, I mean I got weak. So I finally got some family help, and landed into an apartment, and a new life as an Administrative Assistant. Not tough enough to do HR, although it was offered to me at this job. I told them I like being the good guy. I also like being behind the scenes, and in a support role. I love my doing job because it comes so naturally, and because I always get to use my sense and need to give service. They have given me a tremendous amount of recognition in this job, and that is something that definitely never happened in CE, there I just couldn't do anything right!
I am really grateful for my parents and for Christ and God. I am looking for someone who is open about his beliefs and ideas. I am more of the frame of mind as Deepak where "it is a thinking Universe" made up of energy and information. I like to express my praise for all that dharma and am interested in sharing how the Holy Spirit, etc, has worked in our lives.
I'm looking for a man who is sincere, contented, out-going but not taking single-mindedness too seriously. Mostly because he knows that it is the best possible world we live in at this moment. A man who is ready for discovery rather than improvement.
The world seems like it will open with a relationship. My mind is open for adventure. I see a lot of couples when I am around town, you know, instead of seeing mommies and babies or men or women or clothes. I don't have many plans because i want it to be planned together, as openings, or germinations of a love. I would like to go to Thailand because my family's encounters with the elephants fires my imagination. Someday I would like to travel the world: Turkey, Egypt, China, Japan, Chile....Poland, Europe.... Right now, I just love France, and have a lot of friends there.
I'm interested in a long term partner, but it must start with friendship. I feel like I'm starting over, even though that was all 2 years ago. That's still sort of spring-chickinie. I'd love to find someone with a heart for all this, who can take me into his world to see all the good things, as well as wants to be part of the remaking of my world.
