As part of my job as a biologist and researcher, I do about 40% international travelling. I need someone to talk to and share my experiences with. I am however a very simple, straight forward guy, fun to hang out with and curious about life. About my personality
I am consistent, reliable, thorough and persevering. I can also be socially charming. So I am good at managing others at home and work, in my social circles, and in community projects. I have high standards and take my duties seriously, focusing carefully and persistently on my assignments with sensible, concrete, tough-minded thinking and exactitude.
I respect schedules, rules, routines and customs. Appropriate behavior is generally important to me. Yet I have a streak of the independent and innovative thinker. As a result, I have a good balance between conventionality and originality. I am direct, analytical, and skeptical, as well as emotionally contained and clear headed. I acquire the perks of rank more easily, and I handle my possessions gracefully. I also enjoy time alone, focusing deeply on some of my personal interests.
Relating to others
I like people and am generally comfortable with them. Family is important to me and I am very protective of those I love. Yet I am skeptical of people who are impulsive and impatient with those who don't "get to the point" in conversations. I like concrete and focused conversations on everything from trivia to the important topics of the day.
I need someone who knows her own mind and earnestly wants to help me establish a stable family life, cultivate a network of friends and build career and financial stability. I am good natured and willing to do thankless jobs for friends and family. And I gravitate to people who are honest and respectful of traditions. I particularly admire people who are socially conscious, and who participate in community-based organizations--for both charitable and social reasons. Foremost, I need someone who is devoted to family, sensible with money, responsible with possessions, compassionate, and wants to have detailed and informed conversations.
