I recently (October) moved to Miami. I think the consensus among those who know me would be that one of my best attributes is my sense of humor. I’m easy going, generally able to adapt to any situation (no matter where in the world I am) and talk about any issue that can possibly come up (quantum physics aside). I actively seek to keep up to date with what’s going on around the world and have no problem engaging in conversations about global topics, ethnic issues, pop culture, religion, politics, sports, movies, etc. I know this will be particularly shocking, but...I cook, regularly do laundry, and even read books!
I live by the rule of treating others, no matter if they are CEO’s or homeless, with the same dignity and respect that you expect to be treated with. I've been fortunate enough to either live in or visit some of the greatest cities in the world (Mumbai (Bombay), Paris, London, Amsterdam, Jerusalem, Cairo, Dubai, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, Bangkok, Seattle (of course)) and it has been a humbling experience. It’s taught me a lot about who I am and about the things that are truly important in life. Turns out that it's not where you are but who you're with that really matters. There are still many places, both inside and outside of the U.S., to explore and hopefully that’s of interest to you as well. My journey has now brought me to Miami and I’m excited to explore this part of the country and all that it has to offer while looking forward to the possibility of calling it home.
I'm hoping to find someone intelligent, compassionate, witty, passionate about something in life, who knows who she is and is looking for someone to complement her (compliment as well), not complete her. Someone who can hold her own in a conversation on a variety of topics, appreciates life’s highs and lows, and who isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. Hopefully she will understand that relationships aren't 50/50, they are 100/100. Anything less than that and you aren't really putting into it what you're looking to get out of it. Of course there needs to be the added chemistry of physical attraction but true intrigue and the passion to learn more about someone each day lasts well beyond the characteristics you initially find desirable. I'd rather have a connection that embraces the physical, intellectual and the emotional.
There are some things that could be done/said/thought that would probably not create a good match. If you carry baggage from previous relationships that would inhibit your ability to be in an honest relationship now; it probably won’t work. If you are high maintenance; it probably won’t work. IF YOUR PROFILE IS WRITTEN IN ALL CAPS; it probably won't work. If you have more photos posted on your profile of your pets than yourself; it probably won’t work. If a large majority of your pictures are taken in a bathroom mirror; it probably won't work - especially if said pictures feature a toilet (yes, there are more than a few people with pictures that include a toilet posted on Match).
