ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

When I was a kid, I wanted to be Indiana Jones, exploring the world; and I also wanted to be an astronomer, for the universe is too fascinating and mysterious. Then the first dream almost came true: I was on my way to be an archaeologist, living in Europe on my own and traveling broadly. But life is full of wonderful surprises. Eight years ago, I was ready to take off as an art appraiser in Germany, but instead I ended up pursuing a Ph.D. at UCB. I had planned to live my life in Europe, but I'm more than content that life has brought me to the Bay Area, which now I call home.

I'm a life-long learner and curious about different cultures. My work involves history, art, and culture, which I absolutely love, but I also read and explore broadly in other fields, such as my long-term interest in astronomy and neuroscience. In my spare time, I pursue various hobbies: painting, pottery, rock-climbing, yoga, hiking, ice skating, and kickboxing; and I'm learning ukulele and salsa at the moment. I also enjoy going to museums, concerts and live sports, musicals and ballets.

I'm very health-conscious, eating clean and exercising daily. While enjoying being active and social, I equally like being cozy at home, watching a movie, having a relaxing bubble bath with some candles and wine. I believe in life's little nuance and random kindness among strangers. I volunteer at times, which always leaves me with gratitude and joy. I am a good friend and you can depend on me keeping my commitments.

I look for a meaningful relationship, but I don't think there's a specific timeline of when and what will happen, for you just cannot choose when and where to fall in love and meet the person you're compatible with. I believe a great relationship lasts a lifetime, as my parents having been my role models in this case (who have been together for over 40 years and are absolutely best friends). One can be perfectly happy being single, or in the right relationship which makes one even a better person, and the unfortunate is to be in between or neither.

What I value highly: intelligence and emotional maturity; education (both formal and an ongoing curiosity about the world); ambition coupled with achievement; a warm, giving, affectionate personality; a sense of humor and ability to roll with whatever happens; strong communication skills (the ability, confidence and openness to articulate what you feel); a mindset and effort on taking care of oneself, i.e., eating healthy, exercising regularly, and staying fit.

That being said, you'll have a better chance if you meet one of the following:)
