Hola! My name is Rakhee (pronounced "RAAAH-khee"), was born in NY, and have lived in a bunch of different places . I work hard, and also love to enjoy my time away from work. I LOVE to cook, laugh (like really laugh), 3-hr long restaurant dinners, and nature (to name a few). I’m always loyal to my family, friends, co-workers, etc. A sensitive gal, I’m incredibly considerate, and almost too generous to a fault, at times. I'm looking for a man with those qualities, coming from a good family (my parents have been married for 40 years, so I’m also looking for the real deal, just as they found it).
I'm eager to learn about new cultures, foods, ideas, and theories. I love to travel, when possible, and one day I’d like to work/volunteer in a developing nation. I hope to meet someone who is just as open-minded and down to earth as I am. I put great value in education, and I'd love to meet someone with a similar belief (who finished from a good college). I can’t emphasize enough that I like brains and banter (i.e., “activities or chat that is playful, intelligent and original,” yeah I looked it up haha). Looks of a man are important to me, but, looks fade and what’s left are the mind, soul, values, integrity, and conversation. For flowing conversation, I need a gentleman with a good sense of humor, indicative of a high level of intelligence. I want a man who is not so fixated on just my body and sex. I’m in an “I want a real relationship where a man can commit to me if he likes me” phase right now, and I’d like to remain there. It feels good and empowering to want true love. Mutual respect and flexibility to meet half way are key. Have a positive outlook on life, be able to laugh even when times are hard/frustrating, and be completely supportive of me. Laughter is always the best medicine!
Dinner at a lovely restaurant and wine is a beautiful first date: we can get to know each other. I do love chivalry (a gentleman holding open the door for the lady, holding her hand, a kiss on the forehead)…but I can do that for you, too, cuz little things like that make someone feel special). I believe a real gentleman is a man who can handle a real woman, and is not intimidated by her honesty (even though I’m shy when you first get to know me). I just want to be treated like a sophisticated lady, by a sophisticated gentleman, who can handle conversations on the phone and in person.
Look, everyone's always busy, though if you are truly interested in meeting someone, building a long-term relationship, let's see what could be! (I won’t respond to someone without a photo; it's not fair that I have my *recent*--yes, recent—photos up and you don't, right? Long distance dating is difficult so please be within NYC or Long Island, and I really value education, so grad school is always a plus. Let’s talk on the phone, and go out. If you want to see me again, call me again (and I will call you too). Mere texting is insufficient; call too, because a lady likes to be shown that she is liked. If a man only texts her, is fearful or angry about sometimes talking on the phone, and only wants to “hang out” at his apartment, it means he does not truly like her as a person. I promise I’m a sweet lady, and only my recent experiences have triggered me to *rewrite in more detail* my Profile. So don’t be worried: I do still have confidence in love and romance, I’m silly and can eat chicken wings at a bar while watching sports, and I really like people. This over-disclosure of info may seem unorthodox, but it might help men out there to know what works for a lady (whether it’s I whom you fancy, or another woman). I’m all ears to hear your needs and am a great listener. I can compromise, as long as you can speak openly, cuz as much as I wish I were a psychic, I haven’t yet perfected the art of mind reading :-)
