I am looking for a strong and loyal partner to build my fortune and a fabulous life with.
I'm the oldest of a family of 5, with 3 sisters and 1 younger brother underneath me. My parents are my chief role models when it comes to LTR.
I will admit to the guilty pleasure of occasional indulgence of TV viewing when I have time. I have not had cable TV in 9 months and no longer have the time for TV. I feel my TV viewing (and reading people's reaction to these shows on the Internet) a part of my American social education. Before you object to this notion, please consider that I did not grow up in this country and would have no better way to glean into the lives of Americans. The reality shows are great eyes opener. Yes, I know they've been edited and dramatized for mass consumption and ratings.
Those and a front row seat to the American financial, judicial and political systems round up my American life education: I was a stockbroker for an elite firm for 10 yrs, I've been sued (for divorce) and represented by some of the best (most clever/crooked/well-connected) attorneys Seattle has to offer, I have met our fine politicians in Olympia (please note that it's tongue-in-cheek), and have interviewed and published articles about them, have dined, flown on a private jet and vacationed with a billionaire (and his gf. I was not his gf), and have been the recipient of the welfare system when I came to the US as a refugee. Yes, you can consider me informed.
Like everyone on here, I'm looking for the best deal my looks and intelligence can get: great intelligence, health, integrity, loyalty, compassion and passion...etc. Aren't we all looking for the same? The question is, do you have enough of these yourself collectively? To ask for more than you bring to the table wouldn't seem fair to me.
I use the phone to screen dates. Most conversations do not lead to an actual date. Please do not take offense if after only a short phone conversation, I've determined that you'd not be my type, sight unseen. I know what I'm looking for.
I find it annoying that some guys take such delusional grandeur view of themselves that I should know exactly who they are on the 1st call they placed at random to me. If you call me after I gave you my Google voice number and expect me to know exactly who you are and everything about you in a random part of my day, that's just asking for me to assume negative about your intelligence and hang up on you. Have some humility: I don't know you unless and until we meet.
