ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I have always found it hard to put into words those intangible things that I am looking for. I very much believe that you know it when you see it, or rather, when you feel it! So perhaps, I can tell you a little about myself and you can decide whether you think we might be compatible?

So, these are the TOP TEN things to know about me:

1) I lead with kindness. I was raised by two very loving, very generous people who instilled in me the importance of being good to other people. Not because it garners any kind of reward, but purely because it is the right thing to do. I am thankful for that lesson. It makes me a better person every day.

2) I grew up in southern Africa (in a former British protectorate) so do not be dismayed if my English seems better than yours! Though my friends tell me that I speak very "properly" most people think that I am a home-grown American. I may be foreign but I moved here when I was 16 so I can hang with the best of you! ;-)

3) I am in my second year of pediatrics residency. (Sshh, don't tell my patients but most days I cannot believe that I am a doctor!!) Though my schedule can be crazy I make the time for things that are important to me, including relationships. I have always loved working with children and am psyched that I get to do it for the rest of my life!

4) I was a psychology major in college so I understand why people put each other in boxes when they meet them. I know that I do this too at times. It is important to me however, to not be perceived as one or two dimensional. I am quirky and interesting and I promise I will surprise you in one way or another (e.g., I grew up on Dolly Parton, Elton John and Abba......thanks Dad!).

5) I value a healthy lifestyle. Though I am no gym rat, I walk as much as possible, dance whenever possible, and try to eat as healthy as possible. I can throw down at a buffet like anyone else but most days I'll be snacking on a piece of fruit before reaching for a candy bar (though I do have a ridiculous weakness for 'gummy' anything!).

6) I am a homebody. Because I love food I will always be down to go out to a great hole in the wall and discover something new. I am however, perfectly comfortable cuddling on the couch with a funny movie and ordering in (Thai, Indian, Jamaicain are my favorites).

7) I am a nerd and proud of it! I am always reading something. My absolute FAVORITE thing to do is to stretch out on a beach with a really good book. I especially enjoy science fiction and epic 'end-of-the-world' adventures. I have a big imagination and have a not-so-secret dream to write a teen novel some day!

9) My last three boyfriends were African-American, Arab and Caucasian in the order. I am and have always been an equal opportunity dater. It is more important to me that we connect emotionally and intellectually than that we have the same color skin. I mean it!

10) I consider myself a Christian, and am always in a healthy (I think) struggle with figuring out what that really means. I believe in God with all of my heart and it very much informs how I approach the world. I do not condone intolerance of any kind. I have a healthy respect for the things I do not know and as such do not believe in forcing my beliefs down anyone's throat. I believe in the fundamental message of love and that is what I strive to carry forth into the world.
