ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Growing up I was a latchkey kid in a blue-collar family to two hardworking parents. Started taking public transportation when I was in 4th grade and many til these days would consider that a serious case of child neglect! Well, my parents worked hard so I could have a better life and education. I learnt to make myself edible food when I was home from school, did my own homework without much help, like a kid in a box I've always constantly exploring my boundaries and limits. Why not, no adult supervision, right. Indeed, at times, I did get myself into trouble but quickly grasped the meaning of being responsible and never run away from tough situation. Along the way, through my childhood experience I was molded to be independent, gritty, strong sense of perseverance. Think I grew up just fine. Although, from time to time, I do miss my childhood for various sentimental reasons...more like I love those worry-free days and the feeling of no weight on my shoulder.

So, fast forward today. I'm not quite the "grown man" just yet judging by the fact that I'm not a married family man with a wife and 2.5 kids and many responsibilities that associated with it. Yes, I did say two point five kids...according to census data and why can't they round the number up or down? I would classified myself as an affable beta guy with a good soul, always love a good laugh and great conversation; reformed goofball; ever so anti-conformist/rebellious, probably get myself in troubles at times (rules are meant to be bent and broken); perfectly imperfect and flawed, certainly a little bit of self-depreciation comes in the mix as well; avid creative thinker; always strive to do the right thing and be responsible but never a prude. I'm generally soft-spoken and can be quite reticent. Well, pretty much just a normal decent guy who makes his bed in the morning, brushes his teeth and showers twice a day, and irons his own clothes, nothing too spectacular there.

I won’t lie, brunette does make my head turn. Joking! However, to say I have a specific type of girl in mind, that’s far-flung for someone like myself who isn’t all that picky or utterly high-expectation. I just won't wait til the prime age of 65 to meet my mate, you know. Although a girl who is kind-hearted, loves to smile a lot would in turn put a smile on my face is exactly the one who makes me head over heel. Sure, someone who makes me feel like I want to be a better person or little things that can remind me of her are nevertheless, awesome bonus! Every human being is unique in its own way and I do believe in accepting other’s quirks, embracing who they are and be respectful are quintessential to a meaningful long term relationship. Just the simple basic things I‘m looking for, everything else is negotiable. And I can promise you that I would turn a blind eye if you indeed do have a 500 square feet of closet space filled with clothes, accessories, and of course shoes, lot of shoes, right? I’m teasing! Yeah, I’m simply seeking someone to share life journey and experience together.

Well, if you believe in sharing companionship filled with fun and laughter, forking out tiny tiny bit of time and effort in building/constructing a relationship as well as regular maintenance to keep a romance going rather than squarely relying on instant attraction/chemistry, I’d love to hear from you. By the way, I'm old-fashion when it comes to love and relationship. I do believe in gender equality but I don't do dutch, a nice hug and kiss on a cheek is much more appropriate at the end of a first date, and getting the door or buying flowers won't cost all that much! Well, having said all that, shall we just take it one step at a time, let's start with a conversation first and build on from there.

Yup, I made it thru the 5-year so-called "archi-torture" program unscathed. Although, 2 years after I graduated, the 5-year program started awarding Master degree instead of the double degree I had received. What a rip-off, huh!
