For the majority of my life, I tried very hard to be perfect...it's taken me a long time to finally realize that it's not possible. Now that I realize this, I'm learning to step out from behind the facade and to experience the beauty of who I am--even in my imperfection. And I'm enjoying life so much more without the added pressure to please everyone...including me! Life is an amazing journey with no guarantees...just beautiful possibilities, uncertainties and an element of risk. When there is a decision to be made, I hope that I will always make it from a place of love rather than fear...I'm also looking for this quality in a partner.
I'm fun, free-spirited, adventurous, caring, and incredibly happy. I love to laugh and truly enjoy every moment of this amazing journey called life. There's not much that I enjoy more than my yoga practice, hanging out with interesting people, and traveling all over the world. I love meeting new people and experiencing other cultures. It's also really important to me to give back by volunteering my time to help others in need. I'm the founder of a local nonprofit organization and I spend about a month a year in Ethiopia working with older orphans. I recently spent a month in Ecuador learning Spanish and developing a yoga program in an orphanage in Quito.
I enjoy traveling with free spirited people, but also enjoy traveling on my own. I've learned through my solo traveling experiences that I'm an amazingly resourceful person. I also discovered that I really enjoy roughing it a bit--staying at hostels/backpackers and staying with locals in the communities that I visit. I've made amazing friends everywhere I've been and now realize that my home is anywhere I choose to be.
I'm interested in meeting someone who is happy with his life--who is caring and compassionate. A man who wants to learn and grow--who wants to give back and make the world a better place. Someone who is honest and sensitive, who is courageous, kind, and adventurous. I am interested in a man who is open-minded, curious, and also a bit vulnerable. I enjoy being with someone who is OK with being different, who finds balance with his heart and intellect--who has a funny sense of humor and doesn't take life too seriously. I would like to meet someone who is on a journey himself--who is exploring his inner landscape as well as new geographical places.
Chemistry is also important...I wish it was something we could control, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet!
