ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm gonna try to keep it real. First off,I'm a great dad with two sweet kids; obviously if that's a non-starter, you can stop reading and walk the dog.

I like interesting conversation, good humor, humanism and social activism. I'm both devout and nonjudgmental. Every day I pray and try to apply God's word to my life; I usually fall short, but always get back up... I don't get too caught up in my missteps: they build my compassion for others' foibles. At the same time, I expect encouragement and believe common courtesy ought to be common. Patience, gentleness and candor are non-negotiable; I believe good friendships sustain great relationships.

For ten years I wore dreadlocks for political, not fashion reasons. Had I lived a generation before you'd have seen me sporting a 'fro with a black fist pick. And the same dashiki.

I speak Chinese, although not as well as I should, so you won't hear it without a good reason. I almost jumped out of post-graduate training to stay in Sichuan. But then I learned married women don't wear wedding rings in China....

More on lifestyle:
* I work a lot, and love my job.
*I'm terrible with computers, and only a mediocre cook (although I baked a DAMN good turkey for TG)
*Being from the Midwest flatlands, I'd love to get into more hiking Pacific-NW style. My exercise now is limited to conditioning stuff. I look forward to returning to my passions: soccer, karate (shotokan), Taiji (Yang-style).
*I'm looking for someone who is physically active, fundamentally happy, self-confident, driven by her own dreams and supportive of mine. I respect people who give a damn about the world, who conquer their fears, think about the well-being of others, and believe in human progress. I'd connect with someone who has experienced both victories and hardships, yet laughs and keeps a positive outlook on life. So much of life causes bitterness if we let it get us down; I believe in constant growth.

For fun:

I learned as a young traveler to try to see the sights around town, so I like being a resident tourist. Enjoy sports, and like eating out; I don't drink, but get a kick watching friends' inhibition wane. Love the conversations after a good movie.

Favorite hot spots:

Seattle Symphony. Museums. Chinatown (I know, I know, "ID"). For relaxation, Olympic Peninsula. Canon Beach, OR. If I could go anywhere in the world to chill it would be Middle Island Village, St. Kitts, West Indies....

Favorite things:

I grew up playing classical piano, listening to pop's reggae, funk, and jazz. I love positive hip-hop/reggae. Often go to Seattle Symphony. Scandal's got me hooked, but when I need comedy, it's Office. Sherlock is da'bomb.

Last read:

Jane Eyre is favorite novel from the past year. I love black history--but Jackie Robinson's autobiography needed a better ghostwriter. I read some kind of religious scripture daily. Love NY Times, Harvard Business Review, & positive psychology.
