ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm a unique, thoughtful individual that values all things simple. I like to believe that I carry a passion with me, no matter the pursuit. If you are familiar with The Optimist's Creed, I do my best to make it a quick every morning read. I relish the company of upbeat folks and embrace quirks. I've got an inquisitive spirit and I love to travel, learn and explore. We only get one shot at this thing and I want to leave exhausted.

I have a very hearty sense of humor and love to laugh and make people laugh. I know we all put on our big people clothes and have career ambitions and such, but I believe it's important to stay humble and be able to find the humor in our daily goings. There is such a thing as taking yourself too seriously and I don't ever want to lose the kid in me. To that end, I consider myself to be the East Indian version of Tom Hanks in Big.

When it comes to Match.com, I'm just trying to keep an open mind. I created a list of bare minimum criteria, so that no matter what, I'll be pleasantly surprised. Ideally, my match would far exceed these:

1. You possess a passion (whether it be helping others or creating voodoo dolls of tween stars)
2. You have a distinguishable talent (i.e. gleeking or sneezing with your eyes open)
3. You're mostly disease free
4. You have marginal hygiene practices, at the very least (i.e. fresh undies every morning)
5. You're somewhat educated (I will accept belching the ABCs as bilingual)
6. You're a fellow music lover (Nickelback or Black Eyed Peas barely qualify)
7. You have a philanthropic nature (i.e. you will even volunteer to finish a stranger's plate of food)
8. You're a traveling enthusiast (even if your destinations have been dictated solely by McRib releases)
9. If you must steal, you have a track record of only taking from the filthy rich
10. You do not punch babies, under any circumstances

Something else you should know about me: I recently decided to start the process of becoming a full blown meat head, after carefully observing this fascinating subculture for many years. It's an undertaking but I think I can do it: Egg whites and protein shakes for breakfast, patrolling in and around pools with my shades on/shirt off, never smiling, grunting and fist tapping at any given chance, forcing comments about my workout regimen into conversations, fishing for compliments on my appearance, only being able to discuss sports when grunts aren't situation appropriate and using minimal brain activity overall. I would track my progress with a blog or rapid fire tweets but I'll obviously be too busy lifting and taking selfies in the mirror.

OK, if you are still with me - All joking aside, I really hope to meet someone interesting on here. Over time and through my own experiences, I've come to value certain core traits like honesty, loyalty, empathy and optimism. I'm a sucker for a nice smile, intelligence and a good sense of humor. If and when the opportunity arises, I know that I have a lot to offer a relationship.

Last but not least, if you are into Myers-Briggs personality tests, I'm an uncommon breed: INFJ. What are you?

Favorite things:

Cooking is therapeutic for me, I love rolling up my sleeves and seeing what turns out. I will try anything once, but Thai food is my favorite. I also like a good independent flick and an occasional blockbuster. For TV, I love Chopped on Food Network.

Last read:

I am a news junkie and love to follow current events. Currently reading A Life of Being, Having and Doing Enough. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch is my favorite book.
