Some guys don't care much for what women write in their profiles. They may largely base their decision on pictures alone. But if you are interested in knowing who I am, I do appreciate that.
Like most things in the world nowadays, I was made in China :) I came to America at a young age, learned the language, and studied hard in school while working 2-3 jobs (typical immigrant story). I am fortunate - and grateful - to have a career in medicine. It allows me to truly make an impact on the lives of others, while at the same time is intellectually stimulating, encourages me to constantly learn, challenges me to be better, and is dynamic. These are the same traits I want in my partner!
Although I am passionate about my profession, true success in life extends outside of just having a good career. I value spending quality time with family and friends: to understand them on a deeper level, and to learn about their ideas, dreams and experiences. (And that is what I want to do with you too!) I enjoy exploring NYC, trying new restaurants, attending shows, cooking, reading, catching up on TiVo, and traveling. I also meet with language buddies every week to practice Chinese. And on Wednesday nights, you will find me in a billiard hall - I'm part of a league but am still a relative beginner, though I hope to *shoot* to the top quickly :) I'm trying to enjoy life to the fullest, and am looking for a partner to do it with long-term.
I've been told that I have two body parts that men find attractive because of their large size - my brain and my heart. But I'll bet those weren't the two parts you had in mind :) I am a normal, generally happy, drama-free girl who looks very young for her age. I know myself well, am happy with who I am, and know what I want in life. But I continue to learn and grow, as I believe that self-improvement is important.
I do not have a particular "type" and am not looking for a male version of me. Although it is good to have commonalities, I also want someone to balance me, and for me to learn new things from. I am interested in your character, values, integrity, and how you treat others. Do you beat up kittens, or do you save them from their abusers? Although chemistry is important, attraction is largely based on personality. Looks eventually fade. Your handsome face or muscular arms will not be useful when I need help to solve a problem (unless it is to open the lid of a tight jar).
Your education level, occupation, income bracket, and divorce/children status are not as important to me. Whatever job you may have, are you passionate about it and good at it? If not, then do you have plans to change that? If you are divorced, did you learn from the experience? If you have children, are you a good father? The answers to these questions are more important than the occupation or divorce/children status itself.
I understand that no one is perfect. But it is important that my partner be good company and reciprocate in a relationship. He should be intelligent and level-headed, have a kind heart and good values, and be well-balanced. If he can appreciate my jokes, that's a plus :) And if he can banter with me - now that's hot! Please email me if you fit this bill.
Regardless of whether you are interested, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I know it was a novel :)
